Relatively flat, wide gravel trail. Nice waterfall area at the end. Mostly smaller growth trees in the beginning.

Convenient to Duvall.

Hiked this in the height of WA's summer. Nook trail was a steep climb and a good workout. West Tiger 3 was moderate, but the view was very underwhelming. Overall a good workout, but I would not do again. My phone recorded closer to 6 miles total.

Worth the drive out for a relaxing beautiful run. You can run easily and enjoy the views or go all out. Recommended for a “recovery run”

Wonderful fun run with plenty of hills and views. Great fresh air. Beautiful run.

Great variety of trails and meadows and beach. Doesn’t even feel like you’re in Seattle !

Good well kept trail, first 2/3 is easy, well maintained path. Last night is a bit tougher and can get quite sloppy with heavy rains. Keeping to the left Allows for extension along older Logging roads. The last turn to the cause it’s not super obvious. Fun day hike.

easy bus ride from downtown. lots of options to extend your walk. a nearby wastewater plant lends some unwanted "ambience" in places, but wasn't too bad. fog can limit the view on some days too.

beautiful surprise great for weddings

lots of ups and downs. lots of fungi..... fun hike with kids and critters. my only complaint..... need more signs.

It’s a nice easy hike. Beautiful views of bluff, beach, and the Olympic range in the distance. Try to plan your trek just as low tide arrives. The ocean leaves beautiful tide pools brimming with starfish and other animal life.

Saw an eagle!! At the lighthouse

Nice trail... very quiet - probably because of the time of year.. well kept, falls didn’t have much water but a nice place to hang out - esp. for the kids.. it’s an easy trail - saw some families with 4-6yr olds.. lot of people walking their dogs too..

Nice easy trails, great to bring dogs on. The loop is 4.4 mi but the network is extensive and you could easily double that if you want.

Good trail with very nice views and ocean nearby and it's easy.

Nice walk in the woods on easy trail. The falls would be more impressive earlier in the season I’m sure.

Scenic trip - great trail surface. Views of the lake are stunning especially on a beautiful Fall day. I could see it being muddy if it had recently rained. We combined this along with the Washington Arboretum trail which made for a nice long walk/hike.

Best on clear days when you can see Mt Rainier hovering over Lake Washington.

Little muddy though. Went in June.

Beautiful loop! Great views of the water and some good woods. Not crowded on a Thursday early afternoon. I just walked it but would also be a really fun run. On my trek today I came across a cell phone lying in the brush - I brought it to the visitor's center. Hope you find it!

Great hike nice and easy!

Great trail for all. I hike it regularly with my 6yr old.

beautiful Hick today

A nice trail for being in a city. I hiked it mid-day on a Monday and I did not experience a lot of traffic. The trail was generally clean but I was annoyed to see bike-share bikes being left at random points. I'll be back to hike it again since it is close to home and it makes a nice post-workday stress reliever.

great hike for the family and dogs

This trail is readily accessible via public transportation, which means it's also a busy trail. Great for a nice relaxing stroll while also enjoying some nature!

Great view of Lake Sammamish from the view point right off the parking lot.

When the trail merges into the Talus construction, make sure to use your map and GPS location so you don’t miss where the trail is. We took a bit of a detour after missing the trail within the construction site.
Speaking of construction, we ran into "Trail Closed" sign leaning against the ridge side of the trail, ignored it, and kept walking. After snaking through the yet-to-start Talus construction area, the trail entered into the forest again via a jump-over stumps clearly indicating a swampy area. It was in early September so there was no water. But, I suspect a puddle-swamp area forms during rainy seasons. After walking over the stumps into the forest, the trail turned into a goat-trail and we ran into another ran-over "Trail Closed" sign. it was almost half-way for the ~3.5mi loop, and that time we decided to turn back. I don't know if the return path (the north-east side) is open. Something to find out the next time I am there by walking in the opposite direction, starting on the "left" (north) off the parking lot, probably veering right to the "No Name" or the previous "Surprise Creek" first.

Interlaken is looking so nice. Here you can find the classics of Alpine and the image of mountain.

Heads up that part of the north beach trail is currently closed as of 8/25 (area where you’d go up the stairs after going by the light house if you by going toward the birds nest- see pics). We didn’t know until about 3 miles in and had to turn around. Otherwise it was lovely.
