Nice walk. Have seen owls on two different walks near Brook Lake.

Was expecting mud - the trail was surprisingly dry. The trail is about 50% covered by leaves which can make it slippery. Saw a beautiful hooded merganser. Quick easy outing, good to do once, probably won’t come back.

It was a nice walk in the middle of woods. Good way to get some exercise.

Very easy trail walk

It is an easy trail for walk. You can take your kids or dog but don't go alone. Better to be in company :)

Beautiful, easy trail. Not many views, though. There is a cool meadow restoration halfway through that is worth reading about. Lots of history along this trail. Perfect for if you need to get some exercise and live nearby, but it doesn’t offer any of the typical PNW views.

Tip: grab a map at the entrance. It is easy to get lost, as there are many trails that intersect.

very easy walk to do with children. limited parking tho. lots of picnic areas! no big inclines at all.

limited parking, good for little children.

great hike with my parents, husband and stepson!

really nice trail. I went today with my two kids and they loved it!

Absolutely not wheelchair or bike friendly. That being said it is a beautiful trail. Waterfall is dried up but theres an okay fenced off meadow at the end of the trail.

Amazing peacefully

This was the perfect walk for my grandma for her daily activities. Very comforting and clean. Loved the walk. BUT, there are some private properties along the pond so the walk around the pond is not recommended :)

My golden retriever pup and I enjoyed this trail very much last weekend.

By far my favorite place to walk! Been going here every few days for almost a year now. Lots cute little animals and very well maintained

nice n relaxing trail

HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU WALK THIS TRAIL such a beautiful area! And didn’t even know the Ford Slope existed til today! Interesting trail!

Lots of cottonwood blowing around this time of year.

Fun hiking, tons of trails to choose from to match your skill level. Trails are very well marked and maintained.

Easy fun trail to do without thinking! Just some exercise

Good walk in a sunny day. A bit muddy at the east half of the trail, west half is totally fine.

Nice little trail for a quick walk. A 1.7 mile loop with almost no elevation makes it great for kids or the elderly. I bring my daughter (3yr old) here often and she loves it.

Easy hike/walk. Not crowded, but got there early. Beautiful waterfall-ish. Not crowded.

This is my go to trail when I don't have a lot of time. It is quiet and only requires a little effort to get to from the High School side.

A very nice area for hiking. Very easy system and nicely marked.

Nice hike through the woods. When I got there (Monday) the parking lot was packed, but there are so many routes and trails in this park that the trail I was on was uncrowded! Really enjoyable waterfall and creek. No views, but I really enjoyed my walk. Nice and peaceful. Will return to do Long View Peak in a few weeks.

Nice quick hike with a waterfall in the middle.

A pleasant walk through beautiful second growth forest. Beyond the canopy an Eagle could be seen soaring in lazy circles against a background of an azure sky. While the trail is well marked with connections to other routes to enjoy

Great Hike with kids. Beautiful creeks on the way

It’s a great trail but if you’re paying really close attention to the signs, you’ll wander off onto one of the dozens of other trails running through Cougar Mountain and you’ll be there for much longer than you planned. Very kid friendly, saw plenty of families while I was there with kids even as young as toddlers.
