Found a drone controller on Poo Poo point trail (the flat area where you can see Mt Rainier). Please reply or DM me if this is yours with a description of the controller. Trying to make sure it finds its owner.

crowded, but great views. the paragliders can be entertaining

They’re doing logging near this trail so the trailheads are difficult to find. Got lost a few times due to the trails being cut into different sections with no discernible trail markers. Plus parts of the trail are not well maintained. Not the coolest views either. Just a lot of forest and ferns.

Challenging yet doable without lots of experience. I suggest bringing water and a snack to have at the beach!

You can be in the middle of a forest right in Bellevue. It’s beautiful. Smooth single and double track trail running.

Great trail for cardio... did it with the kids 7-12 yrs old... they did get tired, but the end was amazing... we got to see people para gliding.. and some beautiful views.

Went on Labor Day and really enjoy this rigorous hike. Had a 10 and 7 year old who only complained a few times. It's uphill the majority of the way so a great workout hike! views at top were beautiful.

Nice easy trail .

Very nice afternoon walk. The only reason it doesn't get five stars is that it's truly just a walk in the woods. To get 5 stars from me, it's got to be somewhat strenuous and have rewarding views.

If you are looking for a nice walk close to town and a good, quick workout, this is good bang for the buck. My fitness tracker estimated total elevation gain to be 800 ft over 3.25 mi. Beautiful trees but don't expect things to be too quiet this close to roads and houses.

great trail fun going down the hill to beautiful Lake Washington not for the fragile gets pretty steep & must watch ur footing..

Went today! Took the bus line trail to nook and around to Talus Trail down to Tiger 3. I like this route better because there are inclined and flat parts as you go up. The ground was a little slippery just after the rocks.

the main trail is well taken care of.
(side note )
### not as safe as you might think.###
if you take the side trail road near the entrance it veers off , some really cool trails spoiled by homeless people camped out.
garbage, and more refuse people didnt bother to pick up . also some graffiti about one race painted on a tree lying in the lake bed.

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.

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
hiked in June

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

awesome trail with beautiful view on top. definitely recommended.

Went with family. Oldest 76 youngest 7. We had a great time. They have walking only trails or trails for all including horses. Parts of the trails had roots in the pathway so watch your footing. If you go the loop... I hear it’s like a 45 min hike. We did an extended hike by taking the long way every time we came to a split ( signs telling you how long each path is back to parking lot). We were out for a couple hours or more. Nothing real steep so it was a nice walk.

Great trail, can get busy and narrow at some points if you have dogs. But overall it was fun and good end views.

Awesome view, not too busy, decently rocky

Didn’t make it far, detoured. But was a nice hike while it lasted.

Great trail to do with young 9 & 13 yr old boys. Annoying horse poo everywhere but saw a huge owl and it was a very well paved/wide easy trail.

Grate hiking, nice place and fresh air.

Great hike close to Seattle. Rocky but well maintained trail. Fun to watch the paragliders at the top on a sunny day. You will have lots of company.

Easy to walk and hike around. Need a few more signs on the trail.

Quick trail to get my little adventuring. Pretty views, we saw lots of ducks. A great end to our day at the beach.

Love this hike. Took the kids on it and we had a blast exploring all the nature. Love that it's so close to the 'burbs but feels like you're in the middle of nowhere.
