This is a great hike. There are a couple of loops you can pick from, depending on your preference of moderate or an easy hike. There is a steady flow of water beside the trail which makes it so peaceful.

Difficult hike in my opinion. Crazy good workout, was drenched in sweat by the time I reached the point. There are two ways to reach Poo point, Chirico trail is one of them. There’s a high steep level for the most part. You would get to hear traffic for the first 1/2 mile, then it’s peaceful till the Poo Poo point. Amazing views of Mt Rainer! No para gliding in winter, was so looking forward to the views I read about in reviews.

Love it beautiful jungleland looking hike

Great day hike! Nice and peaceful, except for the construction by the ymca but that should be done soon. Really pet friendly and almost no one on the trail! Bring water and be prepared to pack out what ever you pack in, no trailhead restrooms and one can at each side.

Fun trail with good variety and things to see. Highly recommend taking the primrose side loop!

Good hike, but as others say... you’ll need this app for the GPS to guide you through numerous forks in the path. Starts off as a leisurely walk and nothing physical until the loop.

Very beautiful hike. it's pretty flat. You get a feel as if you are deep into a forest.
Parking is limited so it's advisable to reach early or you may not find a spot.

Loved this trail. We hiked it in June 2018. the waterfall near boulder cave is great and so much fun to climb around.

Short and slightly steep walk, worth it to see the falls.

Beautiful rainy day hike. A little muddy and you definitely have to watch the map to stay on the right trail but overall a lovely loop.

Great hike! History of the area is interesting

Waterfall was nice. Not too muddy. Can do in sneakers. Took about two hours.

This hike starts out really steep and you wonder if you'll ever make it, but it's fairly short so by the time you get done, you're like oh, that's it? The app said there was a view, and there wasn't, but it's really pretty scenery all the way up and down. (trickling streams, bridges, mossy boulders, ferns galore)

Great hike this time of year. Saw no others while on the trail. Got a hint of snow coming through the tall trees for about five minutes, so I am claiming this as first snow hike of the season... lol

We parked at the upper lot and went to the falls first. AMAZING! Then we hiked around via Lovers Lane trail. It was a little slippery and wet since it had rained for the week prior. There was also a dusting of snow. The trail was a little over 6 miles.

nothing spectacular about this hike, parking area is packed crowds galore, summit is not much view either there is restrooms at the top, prolly wont hike this again

Beautiful view at top. Moderate difficulty, short and sweet, shaded hike, not too much variety in scenery along hike.

As others have noted, the trails here have quite a few forks and branches. Thank goodness for All Trail app’s GPS map, or I would have been totally lost.

We hiked in and spent the night. Two days wasn't enough though. You need at least three to fully experience this one. Especially if you're coming from Seattle and have to drive 3+ hours to get there. The forest is dense with vegetation, mushrooms, and towering trees. The river glistens with light that filters through the valley. The trail got a bit muddy are second day when the rains returned.

Easy trail with beautiful scenery. A bit crowded but if you keep going it thins out. Still enough room to explore.

Great sunrise hike yesterday. Started at 6 am no one else on the hike up & at the top.

Lots of dogs and kids on the trail. Can watch the paragliders as they go down. The first half is lots of rocks and stones so watch your step if it’s been raining. Nice views at the top. Took us 1hr to get up and 45 to get down, under 4 miles total. Good afternoon hike.

Beautiful trail, awesome view!

took the dog on this route today, go early on the weekends the parking area was filled by 8am when we arrived and there was groups of 3-5 on way back down after 10am the crowds get insane took twice as long to get down then go up, but good hike for a early morning hike and back around 1pm

Love this mountain. even on Thanksgiving it was crowded on the main trail, but if you take the side trails it's wonderful.

Got to the trailhead a little after noon and the lot was full but there really weren’t many people on the trail. If the weather is nice you’ll likely see some paragliders landing at the trailhead. Beautiful view of the surrounding area and Mt Rainer at the first clearing and I’d recommend going up to the second clearing (Poo Poo Point) to get a view of Cougar Mtn and Lake Sammamish. Super short trail - only took us a little over an hour going up with a few breaks and probably 45 min going down at the most.

Takes about four minutes to walk down to and completely worth it!

Nice stroll with a couple loops to give options as you go.

Well maintained trail, enjoyable, beautiful hike. Great Lake to stop and eat lunch, and watch deer and otters. It is a steep grade, little to no level areas, so it makes for a nice work out to get the blood pumping.

Went on a Saturday and expected to see a lot of people, but it really wasn’t too bad, though the lot was full. The trail is nice and clear. It is incline the whole way, but it is short, and there are places to pull over and rest. The view from the top is wonderful. What a great way to spend and afternoon!
