Steep. Wet. Worth it.

Not a bad little trail. My first ever Washington hike. Very nice!

Great views, wildflowers were blooming, saw seals even! Trail is a bit slick and muddy in spots.

Wish it was better marked but LOvED this hike! Beautiful scenery and fun for all

Nice hike, although the entire west section of the trail is within earshot of the main road on the island, so it’s not super peaceful. But the east side of the lake is really beautiful and has very nice views. Doable hike for almost anyone, not too much elevation gain.

We took the dogs out for a hike and we weren’t disappointed. Temple pond is beautiful and the rest of the park was fun to explore. We will definitely be back!

Great trail and beautiful view. Get there early, by noon it’s hard to find parking.

The most beautiful trail yet!! We hiked up to Lily Lake first and then Oyster Dome. When we got back to my car, three people where paragliding. There was a little bit of snow around the lake but everything else was clear.

Limited parking so go early. Good trail. creek crossing a bit tricky but the views at end are worth it. would do this again.

Amazing views of Salish Sea. We went in July so no mud or ice. Incredibly haunting old trees despite the sign of loggers from a time past. Strenuous but you can do it with kids if you park at the top lot.

Can’t wait to go back (bonus that it gives an excuse to visit Bellingham afterwards for a beer at http://www.aslanbrewing.com

Great spot for a short, easy hike.

View of the San Juan islands at the top was incredible! Could have still used cramp ons when we went in March.

This is a nice hike, not too challenging. It’s pretty steep in the beginning, evens out for a bit, and then gets steep again before you get to the top. Muddy in some places, no snow or ice. It was cloudy and foggy but still worth the hike. I’ll have to go again on a sunny day.

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.

trail was in great shape. it’s not an easy hike but worth it to get the views and my dog loved it.

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.

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

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.

Nice easy hike. Bring the family. From the trail head and around the lake it is not as far as the map states. Pleasant walk if you have low experienced hikers if just want a nice stroll. Well maintained trail, lots of salamanders.

Beautiful day for a hike up and back, watch out for some ice near the top.

This hike was great if you want to be ensconced in the beautiful trees of the PNW. Beautiful, Easy trail with some descent signs so didn’t get lost. The trail is rated as moderate but I would say it is on the easier side. (And I am not an expert hiker) We did have to cross the creek on a log...probably the most difficult part, but you can just cross easily if you don’t mind getting a bit wet.

Beautiful day hike walking on a rolling widened trail through the evergreen forest. The falls at the end were well worth the trip. Picturesque picnic spot at the falls as well.

Fun day with kids. We stop about 3 tenths from the top and came back down. We had not planned for the ice at the top. We will definitely go back to complete the trail.

Cute and fairly short trail near Seattle. Perfect on this cloudy Sunday afternoon.
Be aware of the creek to pass before the waterfall. Either you have to cross a log that’s slippery or to get your feet soaked in the water. It was difficult with three small dogs, but managed to do it.

It's the easiest to get to the falls if you stayed on the main path of what looks like an access road for the most part. Sections of the trail are washed, so bring some hiking shoes... the view of the falls was worth the mud patches.

Trail was confusing because it had two trails that led to the waterfall, trail was super muddy as well. Also didn’t have a designated path in the beginning so a little hard to find, other than that very beautiful scenes and waterfall!

Easy and beautiful
