So pretty, easy walk! Dog friendly and it wasn’t that crowded.

Easy walk with a romantic aura to it, by the water. Often cloudy and rainy. You can see Canada across the water.

Arrived about two hours before sunset for an absolutely gorgeous hike that culminated in a spectacular sunset on the return loop. The views of Baker, Rainier and the Olympics from the upper loop are unforgettable. Note that some parts of the upper trail have rather steep falls just to the side of the trail.

Short but beautiful. We did a big hike earlier in the day so arrived tired in the afternoon and it was perfect. A little crowded but super beautiful. Had our kiddos and they enjoyed it, especially our 4 year old. Thumbs up!

No birds when we went, but lots of interesting driftwood and rocks to examine. We just drove up to the reserve boundary, parked on the side of the road, and walked from there. Not really a hike, but an enjoyable stroll.

Loved it!

Not a hike, but pretty waterfall. It didn’t feel as spectacular as Marymere falls.

I love this trail and have been walking it for years.

Easy quick hike well worth the trip and easy to head to another hike after did steam donkey after this.

Beautiful day and the trails were dry. could not imagine doing it in the mud.

this one had a beautiful off Trail which is called the devil's Punchbowl I thought that was beautiful and amazing and it's not hard at all super easy a stroller with big wheels could even go on

Roads were snowy. Trail had slush so going down decline was tricky.

Short and sweet hike with a stunning waterfall at the end! There was still a lot of ice which made for a beautiful picture. The water is clear and mountain blue.

I wish the trail went on past the waterfall or had some other off shoots to make the hike longer or give you some options to get off the main drag. The road out there was kind of rough.. I didn’t see this mentioned in the previous reviews, but if you aren’t driving an old beater truck out there make sure you give yourself at least 30 mins extra time to pick your way up the pothole dirt road. Overall great hike and worth doing!

Beautiful, short hike and close to Steam Donkey Loop which are both easily doable in a day.

such a beautiful trail, and at the end is this magnificent waterfall

Beautiful hike in a urban environment. Depending on time of year it can be muddy in places. Trail narrows in one section above the creek to about a foot in width.

Beautiful falls!

Gorgeous falls after a nice hike! Trail was dry today.

Can’t believe I’ve lived so close to this trail for years and never hiked it until the other day! Parts were muddy & slick (but that’s to be expected in February on the Peninsula). Beautiful trail

Easy hike to a beautiful waterfall. Family and dog loved it.

Definitely worth the walk! Flanks the north side of Lake Crescent. Beautiful views.

Beautiful today -nice drive. Easy stroll to the Falls. It was running fast with all the snow melting.

Very easy walk to see a waterfall. It is cool so you may want a jacket to keep warm. Bathrooms are available and it’s paved 90% of the way

Extremely short, but absolutely beautiful. Good place to stop off on the way to another hike.

inside fort Worden. this is a great area to walk around and explore but stop in somewhere to get a trail map and keep it with you.

pretty walk starting at the water going by paper mill but kind of boring. probably better with a bike. it's basically a wide flat walking path.

very short and I mean very but pretty if you are nearby.

Went on a quick hike on 1/1 with the dog. Trail was moderately crowded (no surprise). We did it as an out and back along the top bluff. Trail was muddy and slippery in places, but absolutely passable.
