This trail is 1 mile downhill to the beach and 1 mile uphill from the beach. this trail is unique, I find it Harder going downhill than coming uphill on this trail. the path is wide and smooth and has benches. Beach is nice and quiet. tall trees. very nice.

This trail has an even split. it seems like 1 mile downhill to the beach and 1 mile uphill from the beach. Very unique but, I find it Harder going downhill than uphill on this trail. Beach is very nice and quiet. trail is very wide and smooth surface. there are benches for resting along the way.

It’s somewhat crowded at the summit. And the view is just so-so. But the trail itself is quite nice.

nice hike snow and icey about 3/4 of the way up so be careful..lake is frozen over but the views where spectacular

Super fun hike, did it a couple weeks ago. Although both parking lots were overflowed, there was enough room up top to really enjoy it! Really rewarding views

Love this trail I do it often. Lots of people come here but it’s still pretty peaceful with great views.

Easy hike definitely not moderate. Only downside was it was not well marked but we didn't have too much issue navigating. Muddy. Pretty falls.

The trail itself was well maintained with a great payoff once you make it to the beach. The incline on the way back up was pretty tough for our 5year old so we had to take a lot of breaks, but overall it was a great hike.

The falls are pretty, the hike is fairly level/flat and follows gravel roads most of the way. Easy and not too long!

This hike wasn’t tough. It’s easy not moderate. Signage was really bad, went the wrong way twice. Nice stroll though. Wear boots...there is a good amount of mud and 2-3 washed out sections.

Quick and easy hike without hardly any elevation change. The falls at the end of this trail are pretty. It was moderately trafficked in the middle of the day. There are a couple spots where you need to cross the water, so be prepared for that.

It was quite muddy today but well worth the sweat. The view at the top was very rewarding!

So fun! And easy, great walk through the woods with abandoned cars along the way!

It’s a nice trail.

Did this hike over the summer, so great and good tree coverage from the sun..and the best ending to a hike is a lake.... to swim in!

very easy hike with such a gorgeous waterfall at the end. definitely worth the free hours in and out. definitely must on spots close to the falls.

great views of North and South sound

Good workout on this trail today. Muddy in a few spots but overall good. You’ll face your fears on the bridge.

It was busy but enough space to spread out on the top, pretty views and well shaded for the hike.

This was an amazing trail! It was a constant workout on the way up, but only two miles, so not too bad. The trail is in great condition! Almost all of the snow was gone, just a little bit at the north view point. Both views were breath taking! Coming down was tough on my knees even with poles, but still loved the hike!

Pulled into the last parking spot of the trailhead around 9 am. Very busy hike so earlier the better. Had lunch at the less busy, first viewpoint overlooking big si. Great sunrise or morning hike when you don't have a full day available.

Went on Sunday 3/11/18.. beautiful weather! Went with friends, 4 younger kids, 2 toddlers and a tween. All enjoyed the hike to the falls and no one complained! A great starter hike!

This is a good first hike of the season. It’s steep from the start, then it’s flat for a while, then it’s steep at the end. Got a good workout without getting too sore the next day.

Ps, it’s definitely around 4.2 miles instead of 3.6.

Very good hike. I would say moderate to strenuous. Views on top are amazing, mountains on the North view and beautiful views of Hood Canal on South view about another half mile.

Beautiful day for a beautiful hike. Mix of dirt, water, slush and snow. Threw on the spikes about a quarter miles from the lake just to get there faster. Lots of people and a tight trail when you have to pull off to let people pass, you’ll go down a snow hole.

Definitely a fun, manageable hike. Gets a little busy on the weekends so get there early if you don’t want to either get lucky, or wait for a parking space (we saw people had parked off-site from the trailhead and walked in). All and all it was a good time going up. A little muddy/slippery toward the top right now, so be careful!

One of the best trails in Washington! The scenery is breathtaking on the top.
A little icy the last part of the trails so microspikes were helpful.

03/11/18 - Beautiful as always. Lots of snow for a majority of the hike, a mix between slush at the bottom and packed at the top. Poles were helpful and I did not have trouble without microspikes, although there would definitely be benefits to having them.

Bring sunglasses!

Beautiful day up there! A little muddy in places but not bad at all.
