The loop in the woods is nice. But the view of the bay is top notch beautiful can’t wait to come out in the summer.

about as fun as walking through a golf course could be...

very pretty and not to busy!

Kid friendly and stroller friendly. Very beautiful, there’s also a lot of traffic.

This is a very easy walk with some beautiful views of the river and the falls. Falls are much bigger in the rainy season(obviously). It’s easy for kids and even accessible with strollers even though I would advise a stroller meant for off-road activity. I have taken my 3 grandkids who are 6, 3, and 2. It’s a great walk when you don’t have a lot of time but want to get away from the hustle and bustle of life.

We really enjoyed this trail. First hike of 2019 and we needed an easy trail to start out with. Great picture opportunity along the way.

From 9 to 11 am there was one other person on trail. Very well kept. there's two rather large downed trees in the path, however they're highly easy to maneuver.

Nice walking trail, not really a hike. Portions of the trail are closed and the boardwalks are icy early in the day so I recommend good traction and possibly walking poles. A little hard to locate as signage isn’t great but park near the Early Learning center and the trail head is at the far part of the parking lot. Nice pace, enjoyed the scenery and even saw a bald eagle.

Easy and beautiful. The trail was a little wet but nothing hazardous unless you’re climbing down to see the falls up close. The drive to the trail is a little iffy, only because there are so many huge potholes everywhere. Easy hike, will do again soon!

Great trail year-round. Our pups loved it. We found it more enjoyable during low tide so we could walk out on the beach. You can hear the sea lions over on a small island not too far away. We will be back!

Well maintained trail, nice leisure walk. Great views of puget sound at the bottom! Well worth it.

Super good view all the way. Very relaxing and beautiful ~

Great trail for little ones. Good for a quick relaxing stroll through the woods and cool ending at the beach.

Loved it!

Perfect walk friendly people along the way.

Beautiful view and pretty straight forward trail

Beautiful views but you can’t really get close to the falls during this tome of year. By close I mean down to the lower level. Definitely coming back here during the spring to see the salmon.

Its a nice trail but nothing special. Very well maintained. Be prepared for lots of stairs and hills. Would be very pretty at sunrise.

my 2 year old loved this adventure! the wooded trails were beautiful. The waterfront was all rocks but had tons of shells she loved to pile up and point out all the colors. AWESOME trail for kids.

Good hike as a pit stop to stretch your legs or get the kids free for an hour. The kids loved the dead salmon that had spawned in Twanoh creek. Nice 2 mile loop for a winter day.

Beautiful trail! It was a great first trail here in Washington and I look forward to many more. Once you get to the water enjoy the seals popping out to say their hellos!!

I have hiked this several times. Great little trail to bring kids on! My four year old mad it up this last summer with some hand-holding and assistance in narrow areas (we stayed up at the lookout and didn't descend to the falls). Last summer my 9 year old made it just fine and we did go down and dip our feet in on a hot day. Very pretty. Just don't be like me and fall in trying to get a photo....the water stays cold! (:
In the summer the lot can get full, but I've never had too much of an issue finding a place to park. Short, but sweet.

Beautiful

We had fun in this trail. It's nice that it is surrounded by traffic and yet can't really hear it.

The trail was clean, no snow but cold. Not very busy but the falls is gorgeous!

Cold in the winter, lots of shade, as you are walking down a gully to the sound. But nice wide trail more of a road. Lot of dogs. Beautiful views at the water.
