Fun hike! Not too difficult but enough uphill/roots/rocks to present a bit of a challenge (keep in mind, I moved here from one of those flat states in the middle, so you’re mileage may vary). It was a bit hazy today, due to wildfire smoke, but still a pretty spot! Hung out by the lake for a bit and only saw a few other people. Got to the trailhead about 10 and only four other cars in lot...lots more when I left at 1 (especially for a Monday, I thought).

Last four miles of the drive to the trailhead are on a gravel road...the road isn’t in bad shape but not fun if you already have to pee!

Up, up, and up. It seemed to never end. I have done longer hikes with more of an elevation gain, but this one hits you very fast and strong. Someone else suggested poles, I agree and wished I had brought mine.

Great hike and beautiful! Pretty easy and mostly flat.

The bugs were insane. Little guy got tired and we were tired of swatting the mosquitos so we did not complete the loop. Will definitely try again when it’s cooler and we can wear more layers.

Nice short hike, great view! Would do again!

Very much enjoyed the hike by far the best is the second mile and 1/2 past the warning signs there's some nice spots in the river to be able to swim and the tunnels were pretty amazing!

The trail is clean and easy but people leave their trash there. There was a pile of trash by a tree. Diapers, cigaret butts and bags of dog poop everywhere. What is going on?

awesome hike, beautiful views, not very challenging. i will do this hike again

We did this with the kids. They are 8 and 10. They loved it. We saw Bear skat and tons of fell trees. I suggest bringing bear spray or carry a bag of cayenne pepper just in case. The view is incredible!!! Great family hike!

A very easy, level trail just South of the ridge i.e., not a "ridge walk" by most definitions. Later in the summer the berries will be out in force. Side trips to either summit Sawyer or explore Fisher Lakes and their neighbors are the true reason to explore this trail.

We really enjoyed this hike! We did this hike with our 4 year old 5 days ago, we felt like we took a wrong turn but we finally got to the trailhead at 9 am where there were a handful of cars. Since it’s a loop we let our son pick which way he chose left. It was nice and easy lots of birds and chipmunks and plant life to discuss keeping the little guy busy. Plenty of places to break for snacks and dip your toes in the river. There’s a great swimming hole at Rock Island campground with a vault toilet and water fountain about 2/3 way around(if you go left) It was hot and a good 1/3 of the hike was not shaded which is why we went early. All in all I highly recommend and the full parking lot when we got back tells I’m not the only one!

Beautiful views on this easy trail. You can even easily go off roading and down to the water for some really incredible views. The only thing is, the road leading up to the parking lot for the trail! For about a mile and a half you’re just on gravel dirt road and my small little car did not appreciate it.

Beautiful hike but too much garbage once you get to the waterfall.

it was easy to spot this trail-head. And also quite short kind of a hiking for me.Just a few switchbacks and you will be there in a heartbeat.
View top of the tower was beautiful . Renting out top portion of this tower can be great idea but that will be the only reason i can come back to this trail again.

we got the early, plenty of parking then but when leaving it was really full. The hike was beautiful and not many people.

Parking was definitely a challenge. First visit on this trail. It was scenic and nice, several spots could have been wrong turns but we found our way. Not muddy at all today! Many families with small children, some thought it was a bit far to carry toddlers.

Great trail a few places not marked so well but loved the hike

This should be considered a Moderate trail.

I would consider easy not moderate trail, take repellent the mosquitos on the trail are relentless. Great history, not crowded and perfect for a fun easy hike.

loved the view and historic feel of a piece of Washington's past of the railroad

Easy trail, pretty views around the lake. Lots of camping spots, would be a nice place to backpack. Lots of children and families.

Beautiful trail with lots of short branch offs that give amazing views of the water. In a few places along the trail you can actually get in the water. Very easy trail, well worth the trip

Great loop trail, parking lot was a bit busy and the road was a little rough but worth the drive.

Great waterfall hike with lots of wildflowers.

Easy and enjoyable :)

great loop hike with plenty of shady forest and fantastic pool of water at base of small waterfall. beware of broken glass in the water and around the pool.

was a great hike well worth it beautiful waterfall and the water was not that cold nor was it deep

This is way harder than expected. The entire first half of the hike is straight up and then you have to go straight down. Bring your poles. Beautiful view but exhausting.
