To Be Hiked! Map

Went on a Friday afternoon, not very crowded was a short hike to falls. Was a decent hike up the hill after the falls to the junction with the John Wayne trail. Will do more often as we cross the pass.

Beautiful sunny, warm day for a beautiful hike. Tons of people and dogs. The trip was still gorgeous though. Good season opener.

Good running trail as the elevation gain is minimal for a hike but not a whole lot to see on the way. Moderate but persistent grade; there is more interesting terrain on the Anti-aircraft ridge trail and some cool logs you can jump over on your way up or down the mountain. There’s an okay view at the beginning of the trailhead of Lake Sammamish but there’s not much space to enjoy it.

Not a difficult hike at all. I did the 6 miles round trip, and it’s only 1k elevation change. The weather was amazing but they do call it hurricane ridge for a reason, it’s windy. Good amount of snow from the lodge to summit. Views are amazing, on a clear day, you can see Mt. Baker, Straight of Juan de Fuca, and awesome vistas from the Olympics. Highly recommend!!!

Great day for family hike. Busy so we parked on the road outside parking lot. Not muddy and river views were exceptional. A little up and down to get to falls but well worth the effort. Great for kids of all ages!

It was busy trail, but very green and lush. Nice stream. Some people were not happy sharing the trail with other dogs and seemed to be anoyed . Some were nice. Seems to be a populated suburban area and butted up to a housing development.

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.

Mediocre hike with decent views of the waterfalls. May be better in the summer when you could walk down and enjoy sitting by the river. Not bad if you’re looking for a quick, short hike.

Beautiful waterfalls views.
Some mud, I would wear hiking shoes.
My puppy had a blast.
I would suggest going on a weekday, weekends seem to be packed with lots of people.

Beautiful waterfalls. Great river views. Able to go to water's edge.

Relatively easy hiking, lots of smaller loops and side trails off the main one, interesting history woven into the experience- not too crowded.

Views: Crystal clear river, old trees, two waterfalls.
Difficulty: Easy the inclines are spaced out and there's plenty of flat walking areas.
Trail conditions: Beginning of March- trail was muddy in some spots overall wasn't too bad. The trail didn't have as many people as Rattlesnake or Poo Poo Point.
Overall: This was a beautiful hike! We brought our dog, and he loved it!

This trail offers a picturesque view of the bay and downtown Seattle. But the constant traffic noise is somewhat irritating.

Steep sections lead to a fantastic waterfall and a trip next to a talkative creek.
wheel chair friendly doesn't apply to this trail at all

Lots of folks on this trail.

The views.

I was pleasantly surprised at the condition of the trails. Even with all of the rain/snow we've had they really weren't very muddy. Well maintained. Beautiful scenery. Wasn't super busy today but I imagine on a sunny weekend day it probably gets packed. Don't forget your Discover pass. When I was leaving a ranger was checking for them.

Great hike! It was a bit muddy today but that is to be expected this time of year. (February 27th) We didn’t go to the very end but we made it up to the second fall lookout. Little to no snow on the ground. The trail is well maintained with a handful of sections of log stairs. The falls were incredible!

Loved this beach hike. Truthfully I enjoyed the shark fin shaped rocks more than the hole in the wall. Beautiful and worth slip sliding in the beach rocks. If you go at high tide you will need to find a way around the water that runs into the ocean. There are a lot of fallin trees that you can use to get across.

A bit muddy, but I enjoyed the combination of forest and ocean. Perhaps a better place to camp out than hike.

Beautiful snowy day cleaning up after dog owners.

Snoeshoed from the road closure to the falls and back. 7.8 miles round trip. Great workout in wet snow.

Hiked this trail two weeks ago. Carried 50lb packs and camped about 5 miles out. Now maybe things are much different in the summer when the weather is a little more forgiving, but I definitely wouldn’t rate this trail as easy! Once you get out past “Hole in the Wall” the hiking terrain is constantly changing between different wet rock scrambles...some very slippery. It’s a lot of fun! But not something you can speed through, or ever want to do in the dark (my partner really didn’t understand why I wanted to get started so early, so our timeline was poor)

Tides are no joke. Get a tide chart along with a map from the ranger station. We did this in the winter, when the tides are their worst. There are points that are impassible during high tide if the sea level is high enough. Us being ignorant, we’re sure that we could take detour routes at these impassable spots. No. The rangers aren’t lying when they say impassible. We hiked straight up a mountain side probably steeper then a 45 degree angle for 20 minutes, slipping and sliding through thick temperate rainforest growth and still couldn’t find any passage way to come out around our road block. Waited 2 hours for the tide to lower just enough to make it by, and on the other side of our attempted detour was a straight cliff. So it’s a good thing we gave up on our detour climb.

Set up camp in a small cove on a soft sand beach about a mile past Chile shipwreck memorial. Ocean was hundreds of yards away. 2:30 in the morning I’m waking my buddy up because the tide is about to reach his tent. At high tide of 9.5’ that night, the entire cove that we camped in turned into the ocean. We had plenty of time to get to safe ground, but the situation easily could have turned bad if something like bad weather was in play too.

Don’t be the dummies like us, and prepare accordingly! We expected this to literally be a walk on the beach, and Mother Nature swiftly reminded us the price of ignorance.
Otherwise beautiful hike. The overcast wild beach scenery is something like off of a movie. Drift wood tree trunks everywhere that are larger then any trees I’ve seen before, and they just get tossed inland by the ocean like toothpicks.

This was a challenging yet doable hike for a beginner snowshoer. Amazing views made it all worth it. Just note that it is a mile and a half from the visitor center to the trail head. We did 6 miles roundtrip. Also, the road to the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center was in good condition but only open Friday - Sunday in the winter 9am to 5pm. Best to get there early. We were waiting in line at the gate at 8:40am, got to the Visitor Center parking at 9:30. Started hiking at 10am and back to the car just before 2pm.

Great for kiddos and pups. Parking a little tricky when busy.

Loved this little hike! Unfortunately, we couldn’t camp because there was a lot of washed up debris, but we enjoyed our campsite at La Push!

Easy and beautiful

Well marked, relatively easy hike. Moderate traffic, saw about 15 people.
