This trail is beautifully paved and well maintained. At postings, you will see a map displaying color-coded routes to help you decide which route to take based on length and areas of the hike. I would come back here again for another hike or bike ride. However, keep in mind this trail is not off-leash friendly. As a dog mama, I love when I'm able to take my dog hiking with me off-leash. Some portions of this trail are too close to the road for dogs to roam off-leash safely.

A bit muddy but a good loop with lots of Neature!

Nice walk along the creek.

easy access, and a beautiful view. worth taking the kids to go see

Shortish and very muddy when we were there, but the forest is beautiful and you would never know you were so near to the houses.

Fairly easy, very pretty. Alder loop was very muddy and not as pretty as the other loops so not really worth navigating the mud.

In a residential neighborhood with limited parking in a cul de sac which is flanked by homes. Had difficulty turning around with all the cars. Found that if I took a left on 183rd instead of the right, there is a much quieter cut de sac (without the number of homes and cars) to enter from.

Choice of 4 loops-easy trail. Poor signage. Muddy and roots thru forest. Best direction are go to WSU, go straight instead of turning into college.TH by WSU barn. poor parking.

Great paved road for running.

while the trail is "marked," I found it confusing until I did this trail a couple of times. I like that it feels secluded in city limits and the there are hills for a bit of a workout. I plan to explore all the side trails next (rabbit hole, ? chimney....). Dog friendly and nice people I meet there. Watch out for horse patties. lol

good workout with inner trails and hills, watch your step in a few places. Dog friendly.

It's ok. Lots of horse dung.

This is not a trail and not a loop. This is just a paved straight flat path 3.1 miles long. So 6 miles is back and forth. This is basically a city park. The trail also doesn't follow the creek and strays quite far away from it. I frankly don't understand why is it even listed here.

great trail except for the litter :)

Nice, wide open scenery with a grey view along the water! Just a little crowded and not much room for exploration.

Very easy walk with info signs along the trail.

I love how green it is here. Lost of moss & some cool looking trees.

Cool falls, but careful if your kids are swimming, there is a rusty car at the bottom of the pool. Looks like a frequent hangout for parties. Broken glass for several yards along the trail. Beer cans, etc.

Great short hike! Downhill and muddy right now (January) but not bad at all, just walk slow. Waterfall at the end is cool, you even get sprayed by it a little on the banks.

This trail is cool year round.

fun with 6 of my friends

Very easy trail with nice reward at the end. Beautiful trees and scenery. It's very unfortunate that a small section of the trail is heavily littered. I gathered some on my way out as to try and leave things a little better than I came across it. If we all made a conscious effort every time we hike to do that, then maybe some day that area will be clean again.

Cool little marsh-like hike; right near a residential neighborhood but you really wouldn’t know once you get out there. Tons of critters; slugs, snails, and salamanders. Kids had a great time - it’s all flat so no need to worry about hills or climbing.

This is a nice hike if you are near downtown Vancouver. It mixes city sidewalks with a stroll through the beautifully restored Fort Vancouver grounds; passing the busy Pearson airport; a walk across the land bridge; and a brief pass by the river.

I recommend crossing the I-5 bridge on the East side for great view of the majestic Columbia River and (on a clear day) Mt. Hood. The entry to the I-5 walkway is across the street from Joe’s Crab Shack.

Nice trail. If you do all the loops and wander a bit beyond the trail I stretched it into a nice 8 mile walk.

It is well maintained with great scenery the whole trail.

A pleasant day, nobody but myself on the trail. The previously muddy trail was frozen so no problem dealing with mud. Very pretty and enjoyed the solitude.

Lovely hike! I had the place all to myself and loved watching the birds (herons, ducks, geese, towhees, and more!) living it up in their natural habitat. As other people have mentioned, the trail does fork quite a bit but it meets back at the same place. It’s hard to get lost, just be somewhat aware of where you are and you will be fine. Taking a pic of the map at the beginning is a good idea. They ask you to pay an entrance fee of $3/car but it doesn’t seem to be monitored that closely. I just gave what I had $2 and I assume it’s fine. They deserve a few bucks for the beautiful atmosphere they created. Thank you!

love the waterfall♡

Nice hike. Went in late October and it was a little muddy but other than that in good condition. Options for longer or shorter hikes due to different trails. Picnic tables at start of hikes. Good for kids/walking dogs.
