Absolutely beautiful hike the whole time! Stunning views that just get better. Parts of the trail are a bit narrow due to overgrowth, which made it a bit difficult/dangerous when motorcycles passed through. Didn’t quite make it to the top because I ran out of time, so I’ll be back for sure!

Nice run... nice and peaceful trail. Some of the parts were narrow and I had to wait for bicyclist to go through, but that is really not anything to complain about. My biggest complaint was that I heard many small caliber gunshots at the very beginning of the trail. I no longer heard any closer to the falls, just at the beginning of the trail. Based off of the name, I was expecting a nice run to a beautiful waterfall… But that’s not the case. The “falls“ were so small that it is possible to even miss it. I heard some running water hiked down a baby trail and saw it. If you are looking for a nice waterfall, the nicest in the area is Tumwater Falls. If you are looking for a nice hike or trail run, this is the place.

One of the best hikes I’ve been on. The view at the very top was definitely worth the climb. The hike was mostly uphill the whole way with ropes to help you climb the steep edges of the mountain near the top. Coming down from the hike was tough in running shoes due to the steepness and loose ground. We were the only group at the top so got to enjoy the scenic view to ourselves. Would definitely recommend!

Up, up, and up. It seemed to never end. I have done longer hikes with more of an elevation gain, but this one hits you very fast and strong. Someone else suggested poles, I agree and wished I had brought mine.

Wow! That was up there with one of the scariest things I have ever done, this hike is not for the faint hearted but the views were spectacular! I only gave it four stars purely because of how scary some of the rope climbs were.

I hiked up toward the Margaret McKenny Campground and loop back around to the Mima Falls. Not much of a visual hike. The day before, there were horse events, so the trial was riddled with horse poo. It was hot and nasty that morning and the water fall was terrible. The only good thing about the hike was at the top you had a clear look at Mt. Rainier.

Nice short hike, great view! Would do again!

This is a fun hike and if you want a nice view of Lake Crescent and, further in the distance, Canada then definitely do it. I hiked it in a group of 7 people with a few that don’t hike too often and we stayed together just fine. Trail is extremely well maintained but is easy to get to so be prepared to be sharing your spot at the top with a couple other people (not a lot, but probably atleast 2 or 3). Took us about 1.5 hours to get up, stopped for half and hour at the top for lunch and to take in the view, and got down in a little over 45 minutes. Again, the trail is really well maintained so if you like going down hill jogging/running this is a good trail for it as visibility is completely clear and there was nothing blocking the trail at any point.
As many others suggested here, if you want a nice cool down after getting to the bottom, if you turn left instead of right to head back towards the lake you can meander over to the waterfall which is a completely flat “trail” with a couple nice bridges.
Overall would recommend. Not an astounding view but it was beautiful and made for a good morning. Kids could probably do it if they are used to hiking but it is a lot of switchbacks so they might tire out easy, especially in the heat.

This is awesome trail with excellent view. I agree with all the post that last portion with rope helps on step slippery slop but it's not that difficult. while coming down it was easier i position as if I am going up it helped.
View of lake and mountains was gorgeous, I did first thing in the morning as sun was coming up it lighten up the view.
I would definitely recommend this trail and would do it aging.

Nice hike to a small waterfall. Also good for mountain biking.

Fine hike, but the falls were tiny and not a worthwhile endpoint. The “day use area” by the falls is little more than a picnic bench.

Great trail, the lenght was great. Just be aware of other people.

We did this with the kids. They are 8 and 10. They loved it. We saw Bear skat and tons of fell trees. I suggest bringing bear spray or carry a bag of cayenne pepper just in case. The view is incredible!!! Great family hike!

Very nice, flat stroll. Beautiful views of Lake Crescent the entire hike. Must see Devil’s Punchbowl- as others have said, take the trail LEFT of the 1st tunnel, not through the tunnel. You will cross a bridge over the swimming hole. Then loop around so that you go through the tunnel on the return trip. Great for kids!

We hiked from the Spruce RR trailhead all the way to the North Campground, about 5-5.5 miles EACH way. The CLIFF diving, also known as Devil's punchbowl in 1 mile in from trailhead. The reason newbies MISS it is because they wish to walk THRU the RR tunnel. If you're going to swim or watch jumpers, you take the dirt trail to the LEFT of the 1st tunnel. The swimming/cliff diving is on that path along the lake to the side of the 1st bridge. Water is deep, blue and COLD!! Have fun. The next tunnel is 1.6 miles continued along the trail. After that... we "thought" we'd find another trail and it was a LONGGGG trek all the way to that darn North Campground (one portapotty)and then 2 miles back to the 2nd tunnel. Kinda boring from 2nd tunnel to the North campground on a newly crushed gravel road.

Great trail for the entire family. Dog friendly, shaded, well groomed trail for hiking and biking. A few tighter areas that may require walking your bike, but safe for everyone. A lot of people were looking for the bridge and Devils punch bowl but could not find it. Locals may have a better idea, as no one we encountered knew of its location. So ask around if that’s what your going for.

We hiked Mount Storm King while on vacation in Washington last week. We are new to hiking but are in good shape and we made it to the top. While extremely challenging physically we did not find it technically hard. It was an awesome trail and we would do it all over again for the AMAZING views!

Great training trail close to Issaquah, usually inside of two hrs up and down, nice path of older trees on ridge going up, hence the name "big tree ridge".

it was easy to spot this trail-head. And also quite short kind of a hiking for me.Just a few switchbacks and you will be there in a heartbeat.
View top of the tower was beautiful . Renting out top portion of this tower can be great idea but that will be the only reason i can come back to this trail again.

This was an amazing trail...but the end was a bit scary! Thank goodness we ran into Mira and Ben at the top, since they talked us through the ropes on the way down. We couldn’t have done it without these amazing hikers. If you are adventurous, and experienced, this hike is for you. If not, proceed with caution, It’s a tough one!

Awesome hike with a great view. To get to the viewpoint that everyone takes pictures its not bad at all - the ropes helped in a lot of the slippery/steep places.

The trail to the true summit however should be approached with a lot of caution (after the rope area if you go right instead of left to the viewpoint). There is a small amount of rope assisting the climb and a chain at the very top that helps you get up. However a large portion of the rope (which was really like thick para cord) near the top of the summit has snapped off, leaving a lot of the most sketchy part exposed. I would say that its class 3 - 4 climbing at the very top so do not attempt it unless you feel very comfortable climbing up/down that. I uploaded a photo of the last part of the trail up to the summit;

I agree to some that it's not all that bad, we only took a couple breaks and were in decent shape. Took us an 1.5 hours to get up and 1 hour to get down. Very well maintained trial except when you pass the sign when it stops. The ropes were pretty scary, just cause one slip you can go over the edge and the ropes are skinny. Some people said bring gloves which we didnt..but BRING GLOVES.
Great views but would I do it again? Probably not, there's other great hikes with great views without climbing ropes by the edge and possibly dying.

Although the alltrails says this hike is hard, it really isn't that bad. There is a well maintained trail most of the way up. the last leg of the trail to the peak lookout is a sections of loose dirt/rock with ropes you have to partially pull yourself up with. The view at the top is beautiful. You get a full view of lake Cresent in front and behind is you is the mountains.

beautiful! Great for kids and grandparents.

steady climb up, great work out for your quads! Go on a clear day and you will see Vancouver Island, the Strait of Juan De Fuca and of course all of Lake Crescent. If you want to get all the way to top safely wear shoes with very good traction. The 5 rope assists on the last few hundred feet of trail were also huge help on a very slippery and steep terrain.

This should be considered a Moderate trail.

longer than expected, not well marked, but beautiful and decent for hiking with a baby. maybe more resting places could make it better for kids, but otherwise good. the trail width made me feel safe, and there were not too many bees. falls were pretty, though a little anticlimactic. I went on this last year in late June. was thinking of going again, but have 2 kids now and should probably choose one with more benches.

Beautiful trail! Old forest. Saw a black bear driving on the dirt road. The mosquitos were aggressive at the 2 mile mark and kept this up to the top, then disappeared. The little flies on top came in waves! Very little snow on the trail. A few running water flows lower but didn't even wet the boot. Tiger Lily growing on side of trail about 1.50 miles up. There is a washed-out section about 0.4 miles in which you can navigate easily. Trailhead potty out of TP. Moderate difficulty.

Easy trail. In and out of shade. Out in open where clear cut had been its plenty warm. Trail is in good shape. A couple grades to go up and down. Three small bridges. Water fall is more of a trickle in July.
I am still glad we went. There are a few old growth Firs to pass by sticking out feet in the water was nice. We saw two deer, a big Woodpecker, some misc birds and about six other hikers. Lots of horse apples on trail. Go walk it!

Biked this trail 7-16-2018. Not much traffic on a Monday mid-day. We have hybrid bikes, skinny tires would be a problem. Tunnel is no problem, lights not needed. Eastern half of trail is packed rock or dirt, western half is paved. There was a short section mid-trail where the dirt trail became narrow and close to the edge, as inexperienced trail riders we walked our bikes through this, otherwise an easy ride. The paved half was a slight grade uphill but easy biking because the grade is so gradual. On the return just for fun we coasted the first four miles without pedaling! Entire trip took about 3 1/2 hours including a delightful picnic on the lake.
