Pleasant easy hike with just a little hill climbing. The old growth forest was beautiful.

Went on to the powder house road to be accompanied to an owl. Beautiful walk, not too hard but a still has an incline! Would recommend!

Definitely a great trail. Challenging for beginners but otherwise pretty relaxing.

Very enjoyable and dog friendly :).

We were taking photos of this magnificent beautiful spiritual place!

What a beautiful part of the world. I'll be bringing the hiking club here soon. I do wish there were more clear view points but i guess that would mean losing some trees. I'll keep the trees.

Nice easy little hike!

Beautiful scenery!!

As others said, quiet and pleasant.

This was a great early morning hike! Definitely be sure to grab a Forest map at the parking lot as some of the markers are confusing. I ended up tacking on part of the Powder House trail to make it longer and it was a fantastic addition.

It's beautiful and serene.
I walked the surrounding trails afterwards.

Great loop trail. Shaded the whole way and there are a lot of other trails that branch off of it. Dogs allowed and wasn’t very crowded (5pm on weekday). Great way to escape heat In summer. Highly recommend.

Great trail and stroller friendly

great trail for dogs! good afternoon romp for my pup and me. pretty mellow trail. good shade. will be doing this again.

It was a nice hike. They have a wooden path that you hike on with railings. I went in the summer and the water was pretty dried up so it was mostly mud under the cat walk. Saw a snake, and a beaver along with some birds. Not dog friendly. Sign says no pets allowed.

Peaceful easy hike. Great growth and shade at the start and new growth after last years fire towards the falls. Easy access and soft trail.

We wanted a nice easy hike for my fiancé, our dog and I, and we got it! The trail was very clean and open, and although we didn't quite make it to Fern Falls, Deadline Falls was quite beautiful! The thing that stopped us was the poison oak on the trails since we were worried about our dog trying to get into it. Other than that, we can't wait to come back, maybe this time minus the dog.

My husband and 4 year old and I had fun walking this trail! It was our little ones first trail and we ended up doing both the old and new growth trails. Loved the bridges and lush growth along the way. Will do this again with our extended family!

Very confusing trail. connects to other trail without really good markings. I enjoyed what I was able to do but never found the creek.

Nice trail. I end up on this when I go to McDonald a lot. a good walk in the woods.

Did this hike a couple of weeks ago. It is a nice afternoon activity. It was moderately busy. Dogs are allowed off leash. My fur baby loves the water!

the grass after the boardwalk was very high, but what a lively walk! herons, ducks, and lots of frogs, drgaonflys, red winged black birds and even an owl... will do again!

Long gradual descent on gravel road before trail takes off into trees. It’s worth the trek, however, to see the biggest living trees I have ever seen! Wildflowers such as trillium, bleeding heart and yellow violets are in bloom now. Pretty much had the trail to ourselves at 5:30 pm Tuesday. Uphill on the way back.

Beautiful, albeit a little buggy.

nice easy hike with beautiful forest views. dog friendly too!

Great fire road hike. Did one off shoot trail to get a little muddy. Good steady incline!

Nice easy trail. beautiful scenery. my 7 year old loved this section of trai.

Great trail! unfortunately went in August so the falls was just a trickle. So if you're hiking for the falls, you'll be disappointed! They are very small in comparison to the beauties further north on Hwy. 138!
