Excellent views during the hike. The hike itself was confusing, we kept going back and forth with the map instructions matching with the sign posts. i gave a 4* cause the restrooms were locked! Overall, we enjoyed but I would definitely advise hikers to plan the route.

We walked this trail on Monday. It was a clean trail with nice scenery, but darkness crept up on us and we ended up getting lost, so we had to go back the way we came. There are a lot of different marked trails so don’t be afraid to go off the trail marked by GPS. It’s definitely getting more and more muddy so be careful!

It was a beautiful fall walk through the woods! We explored through a couple unofficial trails, met some nice dogs, and generally enjoyed the fall colors! The main trail was well maintained and there wasn’t any trash around, so altogether good walking up, down and trough the hills.

I did this hike 2 months ago. Trail is well kept. Pet friendly and just gorgeous spot to visit.

I did this hike awhile back It can get crowded but enjoyed it all the same!

great hike!!! lots of stairs!!! went early beat the crowds!!!

Very pretty, easy hike. It's great for a fall/winter hike when the skies aren't as clear. Can't believe how many big and small falls there are.

Nice walk. Have seen owls on two different walks near Brook Lake.

Was expecting mud - the trail was surprisingly dry. The trail is about 50% covered by leaves which can make it slippery. Saw a beautiful hooded merganser. Quick easy outing, good to do once, probably won’t come back.

This trail was ok. I wouldn’t say it was the best I’ve been on and since starting this whole hiking every Saturdays with the kids journey (this being my 4th trail). I picked this trail only because I read the reviews and saw someone had posted there was a treasure hunt here and since I take my 8 yr old daughter and 11 yr old son I thought “that seems fun!” When we got there we couldn’t find any treasure hunt sign which we were kinda bummed out about. The trail began with us going downhill on staircases that seemed to never end but the beginning of the trail was literally the only challenging part of the trail. The straight a way the rest of the way was kinda boring. Once you get to the end of the trail and go past the train bridge you can look out on the water Tacoma water front. The trail kinda smelled too but it was okay. I didn’t take a pic but also someone left an unopened condom in a tree trunk that you have to pass by to get to the bottom of the hill. So unless you feel like giving your children a sex Ed lesson in the middle of a hike this trail is not the best trail to take.

Beautiful trail. Come early morning on workday if possible to avoid crowds.

Great views and well maintained path. River was great to dip hands and feet in to cool down.

Unfortunately was really crowded on a warm August day which can be a downer when other people’s loud conversations and kids throwing rocks into the river is not the main point of going into nature.

Other than the too-many-people

Loved doing this trail in early October! Such a beautiful time of year here. The bridge for waterfall viewing was magic. The trail took us about 2 hrs out and back, and was much steeper than I had imagined, but a good workout.

I took my 7 Cubscouts on this trail yesterday. They were all so focused on getting up the steep path as fast as they could that they missed quite a bit of the scenery but I can’t wait to come back with a good camera! It was so beautiful! Definitely best enjoyed in the autumn.

Amazing trail, easy walk with some ascending in some parts (which is good for exercise). This trail is very rewarding!

Nice, easy hike with great views and wildlife. My dog loves it and it’s always a good trip.

Spectacular views. Easy run. Not crowded early in the morning and Lots of wildlife. I definitely recommend.

I was hoping to see a few spring flowers, but I guess it's too early. Trail is mostly flat. The loop back is rather steep. I'd recommend a walking stick.

Nice, short trail with great waterfalls at the end!! Be sure to go to both the upper and lower twin falls. The lower one is the taller one that’s straight down, the upper falls turn a few times. Once you get to the bridge to see the upper falls, keep going up a bit to see the top part of them. Very beautiful.

Lots of fun to take the kids on. Part of the trail was closed due to construction. But, we still got to hang out by the creek and have a fun easy going morning. Not to busy on the trail, only saw a few people along the way.

This is a treasure place close to city where provides numerous benefits in order to escape from the busy noise city. You can find a hidden magic place if you want to explore with curiosity. It’s likely good for any season and you can do a good exercise in the fresh air instead of getting gym membership. Save money but boosting our spirit and body! Enjoyable several natural things throughout the pathway.

Very easy trail walk

Great short hike, disappointing waterfall but still nice to see

This is a great place for beginners to hike rain or shine. It was a bit of a challenge for my two gamer children 11/16 yo. The falls are beautiful year round and are best viewed in the spring or after a good rain fall.

Arrive early this is a popular location. The lot was full by the time I made it back to the trailhead.

A discover pass will take care of your parking fee or pay by cc at the trailhead.
