Good for a day hike.

Well maintained trail, short and sweet! Great sunny cold day with some peekaboo views.

Two words... HEATED RESTROOMS. (Located at the trailhead). Great amenities for a chilly November morning!!! Arrived at 830am to an abundance of parking... Much fuller around 230pm when leaving... Only saw about 15 others total throughout the day. A few super respectful dog owners (Appreciated!!!)/trail runners and mushroom foragers (How PNW of them...). Overall easy hike with well maintained trails... Great views of the falls. A missed off-shoot did head us up a steeply inclined maintenance road... What's another 6 miles???

Beautiful trail. Very well marked and well maintained. The elevation at the start is rigorous, but then it levels off long enough to catch your breath, before another steep incline. We took the trail to Debbie’s view and was rewarded with a gorgeous view of Mt. Rainier.

Get there early. Excellently maintained trail. Great view from the middle.

Fun trail with interesting sights along the way. There is some mud and a point where you either have to ford a creek or walk over a fallen tree, so go for waterproof footwear if possible. The end with the falls are gorgeous in autumn and you can view it both from the bottom and get right up to the top. We brought our pup and he had great time, but smaller or older dogs may not be equipped to complete the entire loop.

Great hike for the first two lower falls, the last one really is a killer for the stairs to get to the top falls!

Went on this hike last Sunday and absolutely loved it. Go all the way up to Debbie’s point. It ends up being 7.0 miles. Great view and great workout.

Did this hike about a month ago! Definitely gets your heart pumping! The view at the top wasn’t really much of anything, however it was an awesome work out and really pretty greenery!!! ❤️

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.

Beautiful, well maintained trail alongside a river. Slightly muddy but nothing too bad. The waterfall is beautiful and you can get pretty close.

It was an easy hike... it got cold at the top. Enjoy the hike.

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”

good for kids

Oct 2018 - Woodsy and well-marked trails. It was very pretty in the fall with lots of color. I wanted to get a couple hours of walking in before it rained. Even though it started drizzling, I didn’t mind so much with all the tree cover. Encountered some young families and mountain bikers. Great little getaway.

Great morning trail during the summer before it gets to hot. This is a great work out on the way up as it does get pretty step. But fun with the views and good company.

Did a quick up and down the back way from the parking lot. Cool day for hiking. No rain. No mud. Had my son Jim and April, daughter in law, in tow. Happy Trails.

K and I did this one in the rain. The Falls look great. Per NOAA the Skykomish flow was over 35.2 KCFS. The trail is in good shape, not too much of a crowed.

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 walking trail

Nice area. You need a discovery pass (so if you’re out of state like us get it before arriving).

For the Talus rock trail we went ‘right’ at the trail sign which means we ended up climbing almost 1,100 feet (according to my Apple Watch) but the way down was way easier. I can’t imagining going down the way we went up since the rocks were damp of rain earlier in the day. Climbing poles might be a good thing.

It was quiet on a Wednesday afternoon. Only saw 6 people which was fine by us.

Pit toilets. Bring hand sanitizer or wipes.

I want to go back and try some other trails but we were limited on time today.

This is an amazingly beautiful place. lots of surprises!

Ok hike. The view from the lower falls was mostly blocked by trees. We didn’t have time to continue on the trail but the middle viewpoint is only .3 miles farther. There’s also a viewpoint at the top.
Crowded with families.

Easy walking trail.

Great quick hike to a beautiful looking spot by the falls. Easy and well maintained trail. A few steps and incline towards the end, but worth it for the views.

beautiful trail that gets really steep on the climb up.

easy but enjoyable
