Loved this route.

Beautiful trails! Saw a family of seals swim off the shore, enjoyed the sunshine, met some awesome folks (and pups) throughout the day. Easy parking, and you can take the bus there too!

What an amazing view!!!!! It was a great hike to the top!

Our favorite trail in seattle. Nice lake. It gets busy specially on weekends. Finding a parking spot is very challenging. Super dog friendly. Most of the dogs are off leash. Gets really muddy so wear proper footwear. Also you can hangout and chill on the cliffs. It has a few good spots.

As those have already stated, the trail head is a mile and a half from the visitor's center where you start when snowshoeing. It wasn't overly crowded. Stunning views on a beautiful day. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

I loved the hike and the view but it was very busy today and it's Monday

Great hike! The views are amazing and it is fun to watch the paraglider.

great for kids and dogs. we will be back

Such a beautiful hike! My friend and I love it!

Easy hike definitely not moderate. Only downside was it was not well marked but we didn't have too much issue navigating. Muddy. Pretty falls.

Beautiful hike. We can hear the pleasant sound of water falls all along the hike. You’ll see lower falls, middle falls, and upper falls. We went up to middle falls and Valley overlook. There’s also a bike path all the way to upper falls.

The falls are pretty, the hike is fairly level/flat and follows gravel roads most of the way. Easy and not too long!

A short, relatively easy hike with a big payoff! The views were better than we expected and Rattlesnake Lake was turquoise green from the top. Took us about 45 minutes up. Trail was in great condition, and there are pit toilets at the park below. The only negative part of the hike for me was the trial etiquette. Lots of music blaring (instead of enjoying the sounds of nature), litter on the trail, and loud hikers. People goof off at the top near the cliffs.

This hike wasn’t tough. It’s easy not moderate. Signage was really bad, went the wrong way twice. Nice stroll though. Wear boots...there is a good amount of mud and 2-3 washed out sections.

Quick and easy hike without hardly any elevation change. The falls at the end of this trail are pretty. It was moderately trafficked in the middle of the day. There are a couple spots where you need to cross the water, so be prepared for that.

It’s a long hike but the lake is beautiful. The water reflects the surroundings and it looks like a mirror.

It was quite muddy today but well worth the sweat. The view at the top was very rewarding!

So fun! And easy, great walk through the woods with abandoned cars along the way!

Super dog friendly! Just keep them leashed. Saw several today not leashed and owners not seeming to care that they disturbed other hikers. :/ The trail was clean, wide snd easy to navigate with a steady upward incline nearly 95% of the time. Great views from the ledge! A bit cloudy today with slight snow flurries, but it went away quickly leaving a partial view of Mt Si. Would certainly visit this trail again!

It’s a nice trail.

very easy hike with such a gorgeous waterfall at the end. definitely worth the free hours in and out. definitely must on spots close to the falls.

Amazing view at the top!

Good workout on this trail today. Muddy in a few spots but overall good. You’ll face your fears on the bridge.

It has a new entrance since the last time we were there. Cold at the top, a little foggy but great view and we did it in record time...for us...after a knee injury and a few years removed.

Went with a few friends and it was amazing. I loved following the curve of the hill. :)

I didn’t find snow on my way to the view points today, make sure to hit the trail early

Road was closed when i got there. I had to walk extra 2 miles to the trail head, and it was covered with a lot of snow. Will come back when it has better condition.

It was busy but enough space to spread out on the top, pretty views and well shaded for the hike.

Soooooo out of shape

It was an amazing hike with no snow until the DNR portion of the trail past Upper Falls.
