Gorgeous green mossy woods with several waterfall crossings. Also saw elk at the end!

easily completed within a few hours, great for the whole family.

lovely hike. no snow yet. lots of little waterfalls. the most gorgeous section is right after the Notch Pass junction. the path comes down beside the river.

It was a nice hike except for the motorcycles. The views were amazing.

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.

Follow the written directions to the trailhead. The directions using coordinates on app take you to the wrong place. Great hike, fairly easy. It’d be a great hike on a hot day since most of trail was in shade. The drive up wasn’t too bad, some potholes with partial paved road.

horse poop and ZERO TRAIL MARKERS. Nice enough walk but frustrating to stop every 100 yards to consult with gps. Never got a good pace going. Won't bother doing it again.

Attempted upper lena today. The snow line started around the first creek crossing and we were postholing for a while and decided to turn around.

An amazing hike. Easy parking access. Great views and multiple trails to explore!

We visited this trail on January 2nd when the state parks were free the moss was a bright green! A great hike for dogs. We saw a few waterfalls with on the maple trail.

Good trail, very pet friendly. Great views of the surrounding area.

This is a beautiful trail, however we only made it 3 miles round trip since our 3-year-old prefers to hike himself, so it was slow going. We knew going into this we wouldn’t complete it, but we were hoping to reach the bridge, but we did not. This trail is marked as kid friendly, but I’m not sure I 100% agree. Maybe for older kids ages 6+. It’s a longer hike for kids, plus the trail has some steep hills on the side.

Overall, it looks like a great hike, I will update my review when I do it without the 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.

Enjoyable hike through moss covered trees and brides

Great out and back hike. About 3 miles round trip with some challenging hills!

A nice family hike. There were definitely some slippery spots, but overall a pretty easy hike.

Great walk, easy main loop. Side trails are marked occasionally not so well. The map around the trails isn’t very accurate. So make sure you have another map on a phone. Beautiful the dog loved it. Nice place to stroll not much to look at.

Great trail. Some water on trail from all of the rain. Right along the river for about half of the trail. 3 beautiful bridges. Very well maintained and not very technical.

I guess early December is the season when salmon swim upstream to spawn and die. We saw hoards of salmon struggle upstream, saw white tendrils near the “bubbling geyser” (apparently methane?) and saw two places where geysers are but were not active nor did they even have a hint that they were active in another season, although they might be or maybe they just aren’t active geysers. Anyway, the kiddos enjoyed all the things we saw, and it was a beautiful day! We will definitely return.

I hike in the Dockton nearly every day and have discovered amazing ant hills, loads of birds, other hikers, and, on Sunday, the Gasping geezers cyclists.

I spent the night at Upper Lena Lake a couple years back and loved it! The lake is pristine and the vegetation is renewing.

I enjoyed the forest view. There are some nice camera moments as you go along the trail. The hike is not difficult at all. Even some of the trail names are entertaining. It's a good one to try.

It is closed for restoration. You don't know that until you get here.

Peaceful walk and only steep for a short while, and a great view of Seattle.

Not overly impressed by this easy hike. For a “popular” trail it was pretty poorly marked and it’s really just a short loop through the forest (the 2nd half is paved). The bridge is kind of cool from my engineering standpoint, but otherwise there are much better trails that offer better views in the area so I wouldn’t really recommend this one.

Lovely, well maintained trail easy enough for all levels including beginners. It follows a river. If the lovely couple who graciously loaned me her shoes and his socks because I left my boots at home see this, please contact me so I can return your things. You took down my number but would not give me yours. You live in the Olalla area. I am an honest person and want to return your boots and socks.

My husband, dog and I enjoyed this trail today. A few cars at the trail head when we arrived at 11:00. Beautiful walk through the woods, high above the river for most of the way. There are two bridges crossing the river, at the second one you're able to get down to the river and there's a nice spot to enjoy lunch and for the dog to swim. We didn't go all the way to the Notch Pass junction, but I think it's just a few minutes beyond the second bridge. More people coming up the trail when we headed down, and most of them had dogs. Very enjoyable, not difficult, day hike!

definitely have a map! more than just a photo at the entrance, easy to get lost.
