easy, little muddy today

Great waterfall, just disappointed that the end of the trail was a gravel road, no grand view at the end.

Still enough snow that I was glad to have sturdy waterproof boots, but other than that I didn't need any special gear. Some areas are slippery where the snow has been packed down and started to ice over.

Very beautiful path. I was on a road bike and it’s nice that the paths keep a rolling gate to them and that the signs for when to walk your bike were easily visible.

Great view on the summit. Recommend it.

I love it here there is usually ample parking. the magnolias are stunning right now!

Very crowded. Nice hike.

Nice easy hike. Great for beginners and kids.

Good hike. Great view of Mt. Rainier!

Great sunrise hike or afternoon hike. Crowded.

Nice quick spot. Crowded.

A little wet & muddy road, but I like it.

Beautiful views on the way up and at the top. It was a little snowy towards the top and I fell a few times when hiking down but no serious injuries sustained! Lol. I’ll wear hiking boots next time. Easy, fun, beautiful hike.

Amazing view. Truly amazing. Hike was steep, but pretty. The destination is definitely worth going for.

It was sunny today, but there were a lot of people on this trail for a Monday. This is about as difficult as my family can handle for now. Great view at the top.

trail was packed. quite the hike up on a hot day. nice views at the top.

Great spot to get in the river and an overall easy hike.

Beautiful park with a lot of opportunity for quieter hiking. Mountain bikers frequent the trail, but are courteous and only hike one way! Quite a few open clearings if you push up towards the summit.

Great hike, great view. Good evaluation and length but a little busy in weekend.

A very fun trail with awesome views on sunny days. Well worth the trip to get here.

This hike was probably at the time, the most strenuous hike I’ve ever went on. It starts easy looping up but the incline starts to kick in probably 20 minutes in. Once you make it to the top.... the view is absolutely breathtaking. We sat there for hours. Start early, if not.. no later than 2pm. This hike takes about 2 hours. Great for photography shots. Seriously an Instagram worthy spot.

The beach was beautiful. I saw a Heron, a Golden Eagle, and a Bald Eagle all within an hour. Saw the sun set too. The trail was easy to navigate and access to the beach area is clear. Well worth my evening. Headed to the Dash Point Pier next. I recommend both for an easy and enjoyable evening.

Nice hike. Not difficult at all. Went on an overcast day. Great for beginners or an easy day out.

I really enjoyed this hike. Perfect for all levels I believe. It can be strenuous but also, has a steady incline, so you can make it as tough or easy as you want. I also want to clarify that this hike is 5miles round trip, you just have to be sure to hit the Upper Ledge. The lower ledge is 2miles from trail head to view, but if you continue on another 1/2mile you will find the middle and upper ledges. Not as much room to run around on those ledges, but truly beautiful.

This hike is only 4 miles, not 5. It was on the easier side of moderate with a huge payout at the end. Absolutely gorgeous views!! I did Poo Poo Point last weekend and Rattlesnake Ledge is definitely easier in comparison. Busy but otherwise a great hike! No snow on the actual trail, which was nice.

Fun trail. The views from the top are awesome. Lots of people use this trail so it is a little crowded.

Beautiful waterfalls and river view. Family and dog friendly hike!

Really enjoyed this hike. This was my first time out on a hike and I loved it. coming down was a little slippery but overall it was worth it. One of the bridges is falling apart.
