Is a great close hike if you live in Kitsap County. Perfect for a short quick hike for the day.

BEAUTIFUL waterfall!

easy, little muddy today

Perfect Sunday hike, a light rain and some muddy spots. But it is all well worth it when you get to the falls. Absolutely breathtaking! !

We hiked this trail in March 2017. It was strenuous going up. Bring plenty of water and protein food. It was worth it. Stunning views at the top. Watch out for people with dogs. They should not bring dogs on this trail.

This was an amazing hike. So much different from the North bend and North Cascade hikes. Now is the best time to go. It was 65 degrees and sunny. So nice to escape the Seattle rain today.

Great trail, easy, nothing too difficult. Great views of the lake. Ive never hiked in the area so this was very nice surprise, the Trees and vegetation, plus the wildlife made it perfect. Very little mud, but bring shoes with grip. $10 per day for parking, dogs on leash. Moderate trail for younger kids, but worth it. On the north side trail there was a sign for aggressive owl but didnt see it. If you take the trail clockwise the inclines are easier

Urban oasis. Expect fellow hikers, beautiful spots overlooking the river!

Bridle Veils is not bad, go on ahead to the Lake to make it worth it.

on Barclay Lake Trail

Snow has melted enough to get to the trailhead and through to Barclay Lake. Service road has dozens of potholes so do use caution if driving a lower vehicle. Trail was clear and takes you alongside the river, crossing a small bridge and then to the Lake. Stunning view straight up from the base of the mountains. The lake was still mostly covered by snow and ice, but it’s a tranquil spot. We even heard some of the snow pack cracking and falling down from the mountainside. Great hike for solitude and exploration.

Great spot! Neat wetland to visit, stump house is really cool, and the views of the olympics from the beach is awesome. Pretty steep hike (downhill from parking area, uphill back) there is a road you can walk down if you choose to make it a little easier, although still steep, its prolly easier than the trail. Neat to hike forest to wetland to beach along the same trail!

Views at several spots were great, but the trail is very narrow and washed out in several spots, also super muddy when we went. It was high tide when we went so couldn't really access the beach. All in all an ok walk, was just a little tough with a little one on the narrow and washed out areas.

Pretty scenery with lots of informational signs about the flora. Lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of people and loud because of it. Great for people at all levels! An average person can probably do it in about 20 minutes, so it doesn't take long. Add it on to another hike in the area!

Great waterfall, just disappointed that the end of the trail was a gravel road, no grand view at the end.

More of an easy trail out the water. Very peaceful walk but can be pretty busy depending when you go - the walk out to the water is mostly downhill but going back to your car is a slight incline. Otherwise this is my favorite hike!

Great views, easy hike, beautiful roaring waterfall

Definitely worth the work for a short trip. Ice in quite a few spots still but easy to manage with just boots. Can't wait to try this one again after the snow and be able to get behind the falls.

Pouring rain when we were there but very pretty. Short and easy loop.

Great trail, amazing views. Great hike with a dog.

Great view on the summit. Recommend it.

If you hike the loop, eventually the trail splits. Someone has placed logs across the trail you should NOT take.

Beautiful trail with a stunning view of the Sound. Pretty easy hike.

My favorite how’s me to do with the kids yet. We counted 15 waterfalls. Of course we just had, had a good rain!! It was amazing!!

Loved this trail. It’s an oasis in the edge of the city. It’s muddy right now. Signs posted warning about an aggressive owl. Didn’t see one though.

didn't make it to the lake due to snow pack but very pretty

Love this place!
