Closed because of a forest fire

Great easy trail. Well maintained, not crowded. Lots of mini-diversion options.

Did this one by myself on a sunny Sunday afternoon. It was a great haunt to end my Sunday!

Loved this hike. Our gps said 6.9 miles. Pretty easy but enough to keep it interesting and keep you puffing a little if you move at a good pace. Loved the shaded forest, pretty bridges and views. Then the top is gorgeous! We swam in the lake after lunch and had a blast. Loved it! Highly recommend for beginners.

The trails are not CLOSED. A section washed out has a detour & works very well. The Trails are NOT Closed.

Came from the Chehalis Western Trail and crossed the bridge to get to this one . Very nice and lots to see .

It’s a nice lake to end up at, but compared to Mt Ellinor and Staircase, it’s not quite as scenic. the actual hiking seemed like a B-level of mt ellinor which has much better views.

Solid leg burner hike. Went left instead of right, climbed 1200ft in two miles. The descent was just as good. All with my 11th month old on my back in the Osprey. The creeks are beautiful and there are plenty of benches along the way to stop and rest.

Nice hike with a good view at the end. Good view of Seattle on a clear day.

nice hike, go early in the morning, parking is limited on the weekend's.

Did this hike with my 4 month old in a pack:) hubby had our 3.5 year old also but she hiked alone for half of it! Very do-able even with little ones! The steep parts definitely made my legs burn but it was moderate!! Would recommend

This was closer to 8 miles by the time we got back to our car. Moderate (& maybe easy) for experienced hikers or fit folks. but for this chubby hiker, it was hard. It took 3 hours up, and 1 hr 45 mins down. Lots of small breaks. i would do it again after more experience. Some confusion toward the end of the trail, and we ended up off trail (i think its the old trail) down to the lake. Lots of horse flies down by the water. Very trafficked trail, & lots of dogs. Most were leashed, but not all. Narrow trail, up hill (switch backs) almost completely to the lake. Don't forget to purchase a parking pass (at trail head.) The Washington state parks pass doesnt work.

Did this hike today with my 4 yr old and 6 month old. My 4yr old walked almost the whole thing. Fun to swim at the end. Millions of tiny crabs. There where a few people on the trail down. We hike the trail down and took the road back to make it a loop.

nice little walk...totally great way to start the day.

Awesome park. Easy for everyone. Good for picnic, kayaking, walking, biking, etc. with Mt. Rainier view, water is so clear and its just beautiful well maintained trails.

Nice walk through the woods that leads to a great view of Henderson Inlet. The main road that leads straight to the inlet could be easily traveled with a stroller, but if you are planning on taking the trail through the woods and you have a stroller I wouldn't recommend it because there are a few places where you have to go up and down stairs and there are spots on the trail where tree roots are out of the ground which would make pushing a stroller difficult. We had binoculars and could see seals soaking up some sun on the pier out in the water. The trail wasn't busy and is well maintained and clean.

July 12, 2018. Beautiful morning. Cool on hike up all in lovely forest but very warm hiking down from Lower Lena Lake. No bugs!! Moderate difficulty for senior hikers 75+

Well maintained - well marked. Lots of benches along the trail. Beautiful scenic views of the creek.

A local favorite.

I will definitely do this hike again! Wooded the whole way without views until you get to the lake. The view there is amazing! Great hike.

This is a really nice trail. Some elevation climb at the beginning. I needed to take a couple short breaks to catch my breath, but there are benches along the path to sit on. Trail is well kept. You do need a state park pass for entry, and parking can be a bit busy during camping season. There is a campsite nearby. Took my dog and she liked it too!

Nice trail. Saw one post that it was not well marked, but only found that to be true near the top where trail changed names. Rated a 4 b/c we ran into dirt bikers on trial, not real the reason I hike.

Loved this trail. I think taking it clockwise (turn left to start) is definitely the better choice. You can get a solid workout in for the first 2.1 Miles and then enjoy climbing along rocks and downed trees over several beautiful creeks on the way down. Recommend. Loved it.

Pretty fun, simple trail to do in our spare time.

Such a great hike. There is one hill that’s a bit of a beast, depending on which way you go. Great challenge for beginning to intermediate. My Blue Heeler loves it.
