I went there one day in March this year when it was drizzling; thus, the trails were dangerously slippery at places, so I decided not to do the whole loop. But this park with its tall trees, powerful waterfalls, and rushing streams was magnificent. I had a nice talk with the ranger helpers (university students) who were feeding the salmons raised in large outdoor round tanks to be released later to the ocean via the park system of streams, sleuces, and waterfalls. Like the state of Washington, this park is magical! I shall return.

very pleasant!

nice little hike with my workmate.

Nice Hike nothing spectacular . It is an easy trail, good for little ones.

I thought this trail and lake were a serious gem! Easy to follow paths but significant gain in elevation for the relatively short distance (be prepared to huff a little). Lookout excursion well worth it. Can't wait to swim next summer when it's warmer.

I love it there especially by the pond. It feels magical there.

very easy hike, imo. very worn trails, marked well. map in parking lot very helpful. I feel like this will still be accessible in winter for a chilly run.

Great hike! Trail is well maintained. Up hill in and down hill out. The beauty of the lake is well worth the effort.

Great trail when it's super hot out.

A nice and easy trail for walking or bike riding. Waterfalls have nice strong current during the colder months, trail is clean and mostly flat. There is also a pond with benches to sit and enjoy the view of ducks swimming.
