Beautiful falls all along the trail. The traffic got a little heavy on our way out. If you want to see the falls at the end of the trail you’ll have to climb rocks to see it. Not for kids or people with knee problems. My mom was somewhat disappointed because she couldn’t see the falls at the end.

Easy walk with great ocean views. A popular jogging and biking trail.

Awesome place to visit. The moss is literally covering almost all you see and the dense colors of green are incredible! Highly recommend visiting

We went while it was snowing... so a handful of places were icy. It was beautiful, very quiet and a fun adventure to start our day! It was marked very well. I can only imagine how beautiful it is during the fall!! We only did the big/little Lyon Falls. Then back to the cover bridge and down to hog hollow! Can’t wait to come back.

Beautiful hike. A little challenging but definitely worth it!

Did this trail in March 2018 and it’s a great day hike. The first 2/3 of the Trail ascends up Blood Mountain gradually with a pretty good push to the summit, then descends steeply over the finally mile and a half. The trail itself isn’t as established which gives it a very rustic adventurous feel as you hike the Blood Mountain ridge line. The second half of the hike loops back on the AT giving you a chance to run into AT through hikers. Not too difficult would definitely recommend.

Trail is beautiful and easy, stair cases and a beautiful view of the waterfall make this a treat to see. Easy for kids, so good as a family outing. Would see this again.

This trail is perfect for a first hike, or to warm up for longer hikes. I did this trail while it was raining pretty heavily, and it was still very enjoyable. The hike is fairly easy throughout, but there are some spots can be treacherous, especially if you want to get closer to some of the waterfalls along the way to the end. The final waterfall at the end is truly amazing and much bigger than pictures make it seem. I hiked with a group that ranged from first-timers to seasoned veterans and everyone enjoyed the trail.

No birds when we went, but lots of interesting driftwood and rocks to examine. We just drove up to the reserve boundary, parked on the side of the road, and walked from there. Not really a hike, but an enjoyable stroll.

Very scenic! Was pretty greasy because of all the moisture so was fairly difficult throughout most of the hike! Will definitely revisit when it dries out!

Man, it was cold!! Stayed at Five Mile Island for a couple nights. Really loved this campsite- open space, outhouse available, didn't see bear ropes for food tho but could have missed it, right next to the river, lots of flat camping options. Ran into a herd of about 30 Elk. Attempted to continue on the trail but the snow became more dense - highly encourage micro spikes for this. Decided suffering through the cold (even though my sleeping bag is 20 degrees and I was wearing 4 layers) wasn't very fun. Will definitely attempt to reach the glacier at another time.

This is a beautiful place.

Took the kids and dogs last weekend. Great trail. Will definitely be going back.

A fantastic hike. We took it really slow and enjoyed the views, stopped for some hot tea at the summit and had a wonderful time on the trail. It is an easy to moderate hike if you start the loop by going left when you reach the top of the stairs. A moderate hike if you go right. Watch out for ice if you go in cold weather. I slipped on a patch and took a little spill, but was no worse for the wear. The views are great. We saw a Peregrine falcon in flight and lots of beautiful ice on rocks. If you don't hike much and are on the fence about doing this one, you can hike in by taking the loop to the left, summit, and backtrack the way you came in...giving you a gentle slope all the way up and all the way down.

Amazing hike! One of the hardest hikes I have done. Very steep and you must take the gondola back down. It was busy when we went in September. Great views and the restaurant at the top was very good.

Beautiful easy hike, even with a bad ankle. Get there early as it tends to get a bit crowded with people & dogs. Trail runs along the stream, more than 1 pretty waterfall. Will definitely be back! No cell phone coverage, which kind of makes it even better!

Great, easy to follow trail. Water falls in multiple spots and lots of beautiful views and plants. The last leg to get to the waterfall between the cliffs is a little shaky but worth it!
Beware though, this trails gets BUSY, due to how gradual the climb and rewarding the end.

Beautiful!! Can get icy depending on the weather but a lot of fun!

My dog, Rezin, and I hiked the loop today, and I couldn’t be happier with how awesome it was. Weather was a little cloudy so it gave some nice shade. Great water access for majority of the hike. I didn’t need to get out my dog bowl, he was sipping from small creeks and puddles pretty much every time we took a break. The view from the peak of blood Mountain is out of this world! Decent amount of people on the trail, but all friendly and majority had dogs but they were friendly as well. Great place to also camp, so I plan on doing that next time! Overall, it was an absolutely beautiful and stunning hike!

easy hiking. great scenery. i can imagine this trail getting congested so maybe best to plan around peek times

Great hike. We did this with our 8 and 13 year old. They both enjoyed it!

Awesome, fun trail with gorgeous scenery!! The creek going along the trail makes for some really peaceful hiking. Definitely a must!!

...we were gifted with crystal clear blue skies all day long as we explored the area on our snowshoes, constantly in awe of the landscape , the imposing mass of Mt Baker and not to be out done , the glaciated face of Mt Shuksan...... it is incredibly quick and easy access from the ski hill into the open , back country.... and even tho there was a fair number of people exploring the area there was no escaping the " out there " , wild feel of it..... the only draw back was a rather tedious cross slope trail that proved cumbersome in snowshoes going from Artist Point up to the saddle where the trail branches off for Ptarmigan Ridge, but small potatoes compared to the sights that surrounded us. will definitely be back , ..and i must explore this area in the summer months !

this is a cool trail. great views at the top along the rock face. some 700ft drop? people were repelling off of. very crowded though. camping isnt allowed. lots of steps. a hammock might be nice at the top though.. huge birds flying at the top

had an awesome time fishing over the summer. beautiful lake.
