Well marked trail with easy road access. Great hiking in the Slot Canyon...not to hard but fun.

Baring Mountain looked really ominous on my December hike. The lake was half frozen over and would make big cracking noises as the sheet of ice shifted. Really cool!

It is always a nice trail but seems longer than 3,6 miles, I thought around 4.6 which is what I found in another site and also confirmed by my phone. I had an enjoyable time.

Fantastic.
This is like 3 separate hikes in 1.
The first mile or so is an easy walk through the slot. Great rock formations and an easy walk for any age. One person in another group did get claustrophobic and turned back.
The next 1/4 mile of so is a climb. Some trail, some stairs some switchbacks. It is a little bit of a challenge. Some smaller kids were having trouble and it is steep. The trail can be narrow with areas to pull over and let oncoming hikers pass. There was ice on the trail when we were there but it didn't cause too much problem.
The last part is on top of the mountain. Fairly flat trail with long views of the valley and other mountains. Again- beautiful.
I highly recommend this hike. The rock formations and the slot are amazing.

Amazing hike, took 2 hours because it was leisurely. I loved going in between and on top. Stunning panoramic view at the top. Really truly breathtaking.

great year round walk

trail in great condition. no snow or mud. weather was sunny.

With 2 kids, this hike usually takes us 4 hours. (3 hours up, 1 hour down) The views at the top are so worth it!

My mom and I did this trek early in the morning on our way to Santa Fe. It’s more easy than moderate other than some elevation gain, but the tent rocks themselves are amazing to see.

Hiked this yesterday & loved it! There were some good inclines & minor rock climbing, but what a view at the summit! It's worth the drive from Kitsap!

It was a wonderful day for hiking after a few days of rain. Trail is a bit muddy but the view is nice. We were amazed with clouds floating around the mountain.

Busy trail on a Sunday, but the views of the river and falls were well worth it.

on Twin Falls Trail

A good 3.7 mile hike round trip to the Twin and Upper Falls. The trail is well maintained and its a good workout as the trail is inclined for the most part. Be prepared for a number of steps. Good resting spots and a nice bridge to view the falls. I rated the trail 4* since there wasn’t anything too scenic or breathtaking sceneries at the end of the trail or on the way. Good workout and a refreshing break if you are looking for a quick drive from Seattle.

beautiful, just very busy trail!

Nice little workout. Lots of uphill, and then downhill. haha. Literally walking up a mountain. Had to slow down for our older pup. She made it, but was huffing and puffing. The view is ok I guess? Not really a trail Id go and tell people they need to hit. a family said they counted 26 dogs on the trail. This is definitely heavily traficked.

Easy trail. Took our older pup-she did great. Met about 4 other couples on the trail on Thanksgiving. Weather was great. Would love to come back out when theres a little more snow on the mountain.

I hiked the trail yesterday (11/18/18). Spectacular day with bright sunshine. Snow on most of the path with ice at the water crossings. Made it in just my hiking shoes, slipped a couple of times, but made it without going down!! Great day to be in the mountains.

My favorite Seattle hike when the mountains feel too far away. Just watch out for all the trail runners;)

The summit isn’t the highlight as much as walking through the moss covered boulders and trees. Very popular, expect crowds.

Beautiful just very busy

Beautiful views and easy hike. I love the hike in terms of convenience. Less travel time and no hassles in terms of parking.

Snow and icy throughout the loop (Nov 17) but definitely worth it! I was lucky to have cloudless gorgeous weather so views were amazing. Not to steep but when hiking clockwise almost 2/3rd is climbing upwards, but overall very enjoyable and good trail. Still, took me almost 3 hours because of slippery paths and I did stop to take photos about every 5 to 10 minutes :)

I did this hike 2 months ago. Trail is well kept. Pet friendly and just gorgeous spot to visit.

I did this hike awhile back It can get crowded but enjoyed it all the same!

Great quick, and relatively easy hike close to town. There were only a handful of us on the trail but I think that’s mostly because it’s Tuesday...it was pretty quiet once we started climbing which was nice. The last push to the top is tough but not impossible by any means. Views from the top were nice. Would definitely recommend if you don’t want to drive too far, or don’t have all day to hike.

Did this hike yesterday 11/11 and there is definitely snow. I would have loved to have micro spikes with me since some of the parts are very icy and slippery. The views of mount rainier at sunset were insane. I’d highly recommend hiking this trail before the close the road.

What a great hike! Definitely do the slot canyon, and if you want to avoid any crowds go early morning weekdays. There was practically no one there.

great hike!!! lots of stairs!!! went early beat the crowds!!!

What a surprise—2 mountain goats chowing down on the rocky cliff not far from the climbing face. On a nice day, this is a good choice for a hike close to Seattle. Sweeping views from the top but be prepared to hear I-90 traffic and see ever expanding North Bend.
