This was my 2nd hike ever, loved the bridges and stone stairs. Absolutely gorgeous

This trail was absolutely beautiful. The trail was well maintained and clearly marked. It rained the night before so some of the trail had standing water but it was easy to go around it. The hike to the falls was slightly challenging with some incline and stairs but not grueling. This is a heavily trafficked trail with plenty of parking. Really loved the scenery on this trail.

Worth the

Lots of mushroom :)
Easy in most parts. Just before the waterfalls is a narrow slippery part of 10-15 meters.
Don’t forget to bring 5 dollars for parking.

amazing cool day. easy walking. beatiful waterfall.

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.

Beautiful hike and waterfall at the end. Easy for myself and 11 year old daughter.

Pretty easy and nice!

This is one of my favorite views I have ever viewed.

Went with my sister and 3.5yr old son. Loved it!!! The views at the falls are gorgeous. You need the Northwest Forest Pass or $5 to use this trail!

went on this trail with some friends. it was an awesome trail with plenty to see. the sunset was wonderful and we could see the whales blowing out there air at the surface.

Scenic trip - great trail surface. Views of the lake are stunning especially on a beautiful Fall day. I could see it being muddy if it had recently rained. We combined this along with the Washington Arboretum trail which made for a nice long walk/hike.

This hike was pretty out of the way down a winding irritating roads that never ends it seems. Also, there are a decent amount of people here so you aren’t really ever alone. This is such an absolutely magical place. We were here on 09/09 in the afternoon. Was kind of an overcast day but that didn’t have any affect on the beauty. We had binoculars on us and that made this one of my Fiancé’s favorite parts of our trip. There was a far off rock covered in seals that were jumping on and off the rock and you could see swimming around. Kind of cool to see them in the wild.

Gorgeous Seattle woods. Easy trail, lovely waterfall

Little muddy though. Went in June.

Beautiful hike! It's about a mile out and a mile back and very scenic the whole hike with amazing views in the middle and at the end. A little up and down, wood planks cover part of the trail with exposed tree roots on a dirt trail. Trying to be very specific for people who may have joint issues. I have trekking poles and that really helped my knees A LOT! The drive there is rather tedious.... Lots of switch backs, very long. I definitely recommend this, but this driving at night (I did) is scary.

Totally worth it!

We did it mid morning after a rainy night. Could see where the gravel had washed down the trail but no muddy areas. North trail is more natural where as the seminar portion seems to be more or less a narrow road. Pleasant walk. Will try other trails up instead of seminary portion. It was 1.7 mi. 371’ elevation.

This is my favorite place in Washington! This area is so beautiful and I recommend it for everyone. I think everyone who lives in the PNW should go here at least once because it is so stunning.
My family and I went in the summer so we found that it was pretty crowded but not overly so that it took away from the sight-seeing. It was sunny but cold even in summer so make sure to wear layers! Also: parking can be hard to find.
The trail is easy and short so I don't even consider this a hike. It is easy enough that people don't come here for the workout; they come for the sights!

Fun short hike! Brought my puppy to explore the outdoors and socialize him with kids! It was good to see so many kids out with parents!

Easy hike on boardwalked path with great views at multiple points. Well-maintained, although the bathrooms at the trail head left something to be desired. :)

Short, easy hike with beautiful views the entire way. the only downside was the crowds of people but it was worth it to see the waterfall.

A easy one but, get early, after 9 or 10am is heavy traffic. Is beatiful and couple really nice spots!

This was a very easy hike, parking was easy to find and the waterfall was gorgeous during the summer. I’d recommend going during the week when it is less crowded. Regardless, it was a great experience!

2018/06/30 Saturday (Hiking Date). Very easy river side walk. Has Parking lot. I was there at around 7:30, I was the first one in the parking lot. Beautiful falls and access to river all the way to the waterfalls. Camping available near by. Best hike for kids and people new to hiking. This wont burn calories much. It is more of leisure walk than hike . I would go there again but with family.

Great trail for children. We arrived at 8:30 am and only encountered 4 other couples. When we left around 10:20 there were cars parked all of the way to the camping area.

One of my favorite trails in the United States. This place is absolutely gorgeous… Aesthetically, it is perfect. It is a short trail… Perfect for all ages. This place is an absolute must for anybody in the Pacific Northwest.

Beautiful scenery! An easy & fun hike to do!

Absolutely beautiful! Went there on a Friday and parking lot was very open around 9:30 am. Kid friendly.
