trail running

Nice run... nice and peaceful trail. Some of the parts were narrow and I had to wait for bicyclist to go through, but that is really not anything to complain about. My biggest complaint was that I heard many small caliber gunshots at the very beginning of the trail. I no longer heard any closer to the falls, just at the beginning of the trail. Based off of the name, I was expecting a nice run to a beautiful waterfall… But that’s not the case. The “falls“ were so small that it is possible to even miss it. I heard some running water hiked down a baby trail and saw it. If you are looking for a nice waterfall, the nicest in the area is Tumwater Falls. If you are looking for a nice hike or trail run, this is the place.

Did this hike earlier this week. This was an ok hike. Cool suspension bridge crossing about half way to the grove. I expected more ancient trees there and was a little disappointed. The trail was extremely busy for a Monday during a non holiday weekend.

Nice trail with Crystal clear water next to it. Took us about 45 min to do the whole loop stopping and taking pictures. Easy elevation and great for kids

I hiked up toward the Margaret McKenny Campground and loop back around to the Mima Falls. Not much of a visual hike. The day before, there were horse events, so the trial was riddled with horse poo. It was hot and nasty that morning and the water fall was terrible. The only good thing about the hike was at the top you had a clear look at Mt. Rainier.

This is always an amazing hike. Added on the grove of the patriarches hike.

Absolutely stunning

Nice hike to a small waterfall. Also good for mountain biking.

Fine hike, but the falls were tiny and not a worthwhile endpoint. The “day use area” by the falls is little more than a picnic bench.

Great hike! Beautiful trees and creek. A nice place to hang out by the water. Going over the bridge was a little scary at first but fun! I thought it would be a higher drop off but it wasnt. Nice scenery and easy trail to do. I enjoyed it! Great for kids and not too hard.

Great trail! Plenty of incline and declines! Beautiful view of the waterfall!

The trails are not CLOSED. A section washed out has a detour & works very well. The Trails are NOT Closed.

Came from the Chehalis Western Trail and crossed the bridge to get to this one . Very nice and lots to see .

Awesome trail for kids and family. Easygoing trail.

We really loved this one.Just watch for rocks and roots at the beginning of the trail.the board walk is after the bridge.

Great trail, the lenght was great. Just be aware of other people.

Great hike for kids. Mine enjoyed playing in/on/by the very clear and cool river, the swinging bridge, and the impressive trees. Cooler shady hike to do on a hot day.

Nice hike with a good view at the end. Good view of Seattle on a clear day.

Hiked this with my 2 year old granddaughter. (There are a lot of stairs) Cute wooden bears up high in the trees and beautiful scenery ❤️

Easy little loop. Not that impressive. Best part was the swinging bridge.

Nice trail around the lake with just a couple short, challenging inclines. Lake itself is warm and clear. Steep grade down to the water. Saw some other people who had brought floaties and coolers to make a day of it. Great idea.

Starts off hilly with a couple good declines and inclines. We took the outer loop and a couple off shoots to make it longer. It wasn't crowded even though we weren't on a Saturday morning. passed some runners and other casual hikers. Avid hikers wouldn't waste their time with it. But for us, it was a good way to get a reasonable hike in without going too far or taking too long. Well maintained trail. Good views of the water and the city.

Great area to get out and go for a jog or just enjoy the nature, there is an ADA accessible paved path, but you can also go further out on the dirt path. You can usually see hawks about half way out, sometimes you see RC planes in the field next to the mounds.

The people complaining about gunshots must not go very far in because you definitely don't hear it the whole trail, occasionally by the entrance you do hear the sportsman's club enjoying their freedom and exercising their 2nd ammendment rights.

great for whole family

Nice walk through the woods that leads to a great view of Henderson Inlet. The main road that leads straight to the inlet could be easily traveled with a stroller, but if you are planning on taking the trail through the woods and you have a stroller I wouldn't recommend it because there are a few places where you have to go up and down stairs and there are spots on the trail where tree roots are out of the ground which would make pushing a stroller difficult. We had binoculars and could see seals soaking up some sun on the pier out in the water. The trail wasn't busy and is well maintained and clean.

longer than expected, not well marked, but beautiful and decent for hiking with a baby. maybe more resting places could make it better for kids, but otherwise good. the trail width made me feel safe, and there were not too many bees. falls were pretty, though a little anticlimactic. I went on this last year in late June. was thinking of going again, but have 2 kids now and should probably choose one with more benches.

Easy trail. In and out of shade. Out in open where clear cut had been its plenty warm. Trail is in good shape. A couple grades to go up and down. Three small bridges. Water fall is more of a trickle in July.
I am still glad we went. There are a few old growth Firs to pass by sticking out feet in the water was nice. We saw two deer, a big Woodpecker, some misc birds and about six other hikers. Lots of horse apples on trail. Go walk it!

A pretty trail, but longer than expected. Maps at the park are not marked well, but the AllTrails app really saved me! There is horse poop on the trail. Pretty shady with some patches of sunshine. Saw a couple little snakes. The falls are pretty too! You can get pretty close to them.
