Reward yourself with a great view at the top of the trail!

Great quick and easy hike. Went on a weekday not too much traffic.

Spikes were definitely needed. I wish I had poles. Old trail was very icey and hard to manage with how steep it was. It was still very satisfying to make it to the top. My Fitbit tracked close to 4 miles up the old trail and 6 miles down the new.

breath taking views

We hiked in early March. Still snow packed in some areas but views are beautiful at the top! Was confused by all of the turf laid out at the top until we realized it was for paragliders!

Aptly challenging trail with views worth the sweat at the top.

Loved this route.

Easy hike definitely not moderate. Only downside was it was not well marked but we didn't have too much issue navigating. Muddy. Pretty falls.

Simply beautiful!!! Bring microspikes.

This hike wasn’t tough. It’s easy not moderate. Signage was really bad, went the wrong way twice. Nice stroll though. Wear boots...there is a good amount of mud and 2-3 washed out sections.

Quick and easy hike without hardly any elevation change. The falls at the end of this trail are pretty. It was moderately trafficked in the middle of the day. There are a couple spots where you need to cross the water, so be prepared for that.

Beautiful Views, trafficked, good season opener.

So fun! And easy, great walk through the woods with abandoned cars along the way!

the best running views and waterfalls if your going for miles

the trail was easy to find with the picture of the gate already posted. The issue was there was no markings to follow. One trail followed along the stream and ended, the other trail went up to the bridge that didnt have any signs for zig zag. We went left and walked accross the bridge and say multiple rock climbers but the trail was a road. Some cool views but without the signs we didn't do the intended hike.

very easy hike with such a gorgeous waterfall at the end. definitely worth the free hours in and out. definitely must on spots close to the falls.

Amazing view at the top!

Nice hike with things to see along the way! The huge Talus rocks were amazing and saw a beautiful waterfall as well. Not a difficult hike at all.

Soooooo out of shape

Went on a Friday afternoon, not very crowded was a short hike to falls. Was a decent hike up the hill after the falls to the junction with the John Wayne trail. Will do more often as we cross the pass.

Mostly incline, but manageable. Nice tranquil hike, well maintained, well marked, no bathroom facilities. Parking off road.

Beautiful sunny, warm day for a beautiful hike. Tons of people and dogs. The trip was still gorgeous though. Good season opener.

Great day for family hike. Busy so we parked on the road outside parking lot. Not muddy and river views were exceptional. A little up and down to get to falls but well worth the effort. Great for kids of all ages!

It was busy trail, but very green and lush. Nice stream. Some people were not happy sharing the trail with other dogs and seemed to be anoyed . Some were nice. Seems to be a populated suburban area and butted up to a housing development.

This was definitely a moderate hike, but only on the way up and you’re treated with a beautiful view at the end. It was a pretty busy Saturday at lunchtime, but regardless of the narrow trail at times, people and animals were patient and respectful. Going down can be a little steep so I recommend hiking shoes with good traction. Dogs also really enjoyed the hike and made a few friends along the way.

Really fun trail! Hard to find at first since its a trail with in a trail! But the rocks were cool!

This hike was great if you want to be ensconced in the beautiful trees of the PNW. Beautiful, Easy trail with some descent signs so didn’t get lost. The trail is rated as moderate but I would say it is on the easier side. (And I am not an expert hiker) We did have to cross the creek on a log...probably the most difficult part, but you can just cross easily if you don’t mind getting a bit wet.

Great hike, beautiful weather, beautiful views!!!

Mediocre hike with decent views of the waterfalls. May be better in the summer when you could walk down and enjoy sitting by the river. Not bad if you’re looking for a quick, short hike.
