Fun and easy loop hike that took us less than two hours to complete. Good mixture of shade and sun.

Hiked the mason creek trail and it was absolutely beautiful! You are almost always in the shade and it's a pretty easy hike. One of my favorite hikes so far this summer.

Nice trail with gradual elevation. Many of the side trails can be taken to increase distance and difficulty.

Nice, quick hike with pretty wildflowers and lots of trees. Great for a quick evening hike after work. We did the two main loops in about an hour. It was great hike for the dog.

Great day hike. Took the new trail section, which is away from the service road, I the way up. Great view of the falls from the overlook!

I really enjoyed this one but don't go off what I think because it was my first hike haha. It was a pretty nice scenic trail.

Very nice trail, well marked and not very rocky. All of it is in the trees and there are no great viewing points, but it's a pretty trail. Would be more stars but I was really unlucky and went at the same time as a group of young bikers, probably in some summer camp or something. They were loud and no matter what I did it was almost impossible to lose them. Other than that I thought it was great!

I actually did this hike on New Year's Eve last year and it was great. Plenty of snow on the ground but didn't complicate it a bit. Very easy and great relaxing hike. My friend and I actually took an unnoticed trail leading to the top of the mountain after reaching the top of the actual hike which made it a round trip of 6 miles. Was breathtaking
