Difficult due to elevation. Beautiful at sunset but gets dark fast!

Trail in good condition. Came on a Sunday, turned up at about 2:30pm and there was parking available. It's a simple hike, basically just switch-backs all the way to the top, but the views are absolutely incredible from the top.

Pros: Easy to get to (the freeway is 5 minutes from the trail head). Trail in good condition. Absolutely stunning views from the top.

Cons: Busy, so if you hike for solitude you won't find it here. Trail quite narrow so lots of stopping to let people pass. The hike itself up the hill is pretty nondescript, could be anywhere in the Cascades.

Solid hike with an amazing view from the top. Highly recommend going all the way and climbing up the side to the tip top. The only downside is going back down really took a toll on my knees. nonetheless I shall return for round 2.

Really great and challenging trail. Fairly steady incline and the scramble up Haystack is a nice way to cap off the summit hike!

Hiked this on Saturday. It says it’s 9.8 but my Fitbit logged 13.11 miles. It was beautiful at the top. Wish we had more time to enjoy it hanging out at the mailbox. Will definitely do it again.

boring busy trail

My favorite views close to Seattle while out in PacNor. It’s not a hard trail as much as it is a decent distance and altitude - but views so worth it.

The trail is maintained and fairly well marked. The Falls are dry, but still a great hike, even in the rain.

Beautiful and great hike on a sunny clear 60 degree day September day. Three of us made the hike and took 4 hours total at a slower pace. Great views and moderately difficult. I wore trail runners and maybe a more stout hiking boot would be better as there is some rocks to navigate through at the top of the trail. I loved it. Considering it was after labor day there were still about thirty cars in the lot when we arrived at 1100 and about the same when we left at 3:00. Great hike (we had our leashed dog-he loved it)

This trail was absolutely beautiful!!! A perfect moderate rating. It is very rocky (big rocks, small rocks, lots of looking down where you're walking) so hiking boots with ankle support would definitely make your life easier. Once you get to the top, climb up the big boulder to the left where there is an incredible view of the lake and basin. The climb down to the lake is quick and easy and offers a few more beautiful views on the way down. I'm sure it gets really busy during good weather and weekends, so would recommend an early start!

I loved this trail and the beautiful lake! It is very rocky so make sure you wear hiking boots with ankle support because it would be very easy to twist an ankle. I saw a lot of dogs on the trail, and the bigger dogs seemed to love it but saw some smaller dogs that were really struggling. It also might be a good idea to bring booties for your pups If they have sensitive paws due to the rocks.

Gorgeous short hike, def go to both upper and lower falls- worth it!

Nice hiking trail. Rocky at the beginning, but then opens up to the woods and it's really nice to get away from the city. The views from the top are great and on a sunny day expect to see a lot of paragliders.

Busy path that was paved and pretty structured, but leads to gorgeous falls.

Loved the informational plaques. The Falls were gorgeous! The trail was heavily trafficked and there were many signs of rule breakers along the sides of the lower river bed.

Nice, short trail with great waterfalls at the end!! Be sure to go to both the upper and lower twin falls. The lower one is the taller one that’s straight down, the upper falls turn a few times. Once you get to the bridge to see the upper falls, keep going up a bit to see the top part of them. Very beautiful.

Ass-kicker.

Great, easy, dog friendly hike. The view of the lake is beautiful, if you can tolerate the crowd. The trail is in excellent condition and there’s plenty of parking at the trailhead.

this trail was a great and powerful challenge for me and my (now) fiance. I took her on it and little did she know when we made it to the very scenic view at the top that I would propose to her! The entire hike was very uphill but really made you work for the end. it was hard but in a good way. Worth it

A lovely, challenging hike with a stunning reveal at the end. Bring a small picnic to enjoy by the lake. We saw many other hikers and lots of interesting wildlife. Just beautiful.

It’s a hard road throughout hiking. It was a challenging rather than enjoying the scenery nature offers like other hiking b/c up/ down hills hurt feet a lot. I felt I go through a hardship but resting and majestic scenery on the top after a long hard walking makes all of hardship worthy and grateful to survive from it and appreciate the beauty of nature!

This is a treasure place close to city where provides numerous benefits in order to escape from the busy noise city. You can find a hidden magic place if you want to explore with curiosity. It’s likely good for any season and you can do a good exercise in the fresh air instead of getting gym membership. Save money but boosting our spirit and body! Enjoyable several natural things throughout the pathway.

Fun, beautiful rocky trail with steep inclines pretty much all the way. The path is narrow and the rocks can get slippery.

Beautiful hike!!! Pretty rocky. Highly recommend hiking boots with good ankle support. Make sure you continue down to lake once you get to the lookout. Will absolutely go again!!

awesome trail with beautiful view on top. definitely recommended.

Nice hike and a decent view. But I hope you enjoy sharing the trail.

Hard, steep but the view is worth it. The incline is almost throughout the whole trail. There are benches to sit at 2-3 places along the trail.

great hike up. good workout. did it with my 12 yr old son. he only complained minimally. view is absolutely gorgeous. will be doing this one again.

It was such a pretty trail with an amazing view. There are some point where the trail is steep but it’s worth it when you see the views.
