Nice short hike (about 4 miles round trip). Fairly easy, but does have a bit of a climb near the end. Got there around 9am on a Sunday and only saw a few other people. Parking lot and gravel trail leading to the trailhead was getting busy by the time I was leaving though. Nice alternative to rattlesnake with waaay less people.

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.

The trail has recently received some tlc, so it’s in fairly good shape. Plenty of signage along the way. The last little scramble to get to the balcony is so worth it! The views are incredible!!

Got to the trailhead at 8 and there were only 2 other cars. The trail was easy to follow and had a gradual incline. View was beautiful, the sun was just starting to come through right before I got to the top. By the time I got done there were about 10 cars in the lot.

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.

Very nice trail. Going there is uphill and coming back is downhill. View of the lake is beautiful and very relaxing. Trail itself is not difficult and while there is a 1.8 mile uphill hike, the trail itself is very comfortable and easy to walk on. Lots of kids and dogs. Highly recommend.

i think the loop on its own is not worth the drive from Marysville, but the hike was nice and the viewpoint was very pretty.

Just checked this trail today. As some have mentioned, the road to get to the trail is pretty brutal. I have a Jeep and I hit a few very iffy spots. Once you are there the parking is sufficient for about 10-12 vehicles. No facilities nearby.

The trail is in good shape, well maintained, with minimal roots. The bookends of the hike are rocky, but not bad at all. I experienced minimal bugs and people. It was just me and my little 9lb dog and we made it to the peak in about an hour and made it back down in about 45 minutes.

The peak is a sight to behold! Amazing 180 mountain views on a clear day. To get up to the peak there is a cable wire to use, which came in handy! We sat up there for about 30 minutes, had a nice lunch, and prepared for the climb down.

This is easily one of my new favorites for a shorter, moderate hike!

Random note: as we hit about the halfway point I regained cellphone service (AT&T) and the signal grew stronger the higher we went. Which is always nice if there is an emergency.

A beautiful, easy fall hike. We arrived around 9am on a rainy Saturday and the trail was relatively empty; found a quiet spot next to the lake to snack and hang out. By the time we hiked out, around 11:30, the parking lot was full and there were a steady number of hikers. As with most trails ... get there early! We definitely plan to return for an overnight trip.

Fun hike! Not hard if you pace yourself. Once at the ridge its an easy cruize to the scramble, which is loads of fun with the cable to help. View was mist today, so coming back when there is sun.

Road has some very rough patches, suv highly recommended, if not required.

Went today! Took the bus line trail to nook and around to Talus Trail down to Tiger 3. I like this route better because there are inclined and flat parts as you go up. The ground was a little slippery just after the rocks.

Its an easy-to-moderately difficult trail but not too long !AT 1st Review on All Trails: 3.5miles, so even the non-hiker can complete it. Just take your time. No viewpoints except at the very top of the climb where you can see views of rattlesnake lake and also looking north you can see Mount Si and the middle fork of the Snoqualmie River. Still - close by, worth a shot to give you some new views.

Nice easy hike. We continued another 1.5 miles to the second lake.

Great challenge for an out of shape hiker! NOT 2.6!! It was about 2.6 for one way! Lots of people seem to think it’s super short but it is definitely about 5 miles round trip.

Great easy hike. The map does not show the lake, but it’s there and nicely refreshing.

Beautiful hike. Pretty quick hike, but you’ll definitely get a good workout in. Amazing view from the top. Lots of smoke because of wildfires at this time.

8/13/2018 (Monday) - It's so quiet on this cool weekday morning. No car at the trailhead at 9:15. Temperature is 10 degrees lower than outside the woods. A pleasant hike in this environment. It's 3 miles to the Central Peak via Eastside Trail.

Lovely hike--tough finding the trail to the Butte as it is just near the Boxely Creek bridge and rather narrow but the best part is that it is in the forest and there was no one on it once we got off the gravel road. The view is not as nice as Rattlesnake but it was worth it to skip the crowds.

Not the most adventurous or sightly trail I’ve done. But it’s great for trial running with the dogs. And the many interwinding trials make for an exciting unexpected trip every time.

A black bear wandered out onto the trail in front of us (maybe 20-30 feet). It was not aggressive but definitely gave us a start. Some other hikers we ran into said they'd had an unusually high amount of bear sightings this year—they'd also seen some bear cubs.

As for the trail itself, it's more of a nice nature walk than a hike. Ideal for an easy hour or two in the woods if you connect to the surrounding trails. However, the trails in this region could be marked a little better.

trail is ok, but the lookout it very underwhelming, not worth the climb

Hiked 7/15/18. The trail was a little confusing. When you get to the point where you have to go left or right and it looks like right is washed out, go right - you can see the trail continue just beyond the trees. Views were okay, but don't think I'd do this one again.

i am a total novice. Didn't realize it was in the middle of the west tiger 3 trail. It was steep for me to get there but once finally there it was awesome. worth it for me!

Pretty lake. Easy hike, lots of roots but the trail is easy to follow.

Easy hike, short with many families. I took Nook Trail off Bus Trail. Nook Trail is more difficult and has a climb. Not for children or beginners. There’s not much to see at the top but it’s a good training trail for my hike later this Summer in Lolo Lolo National Forest in Montana.

Lovely, well maintained trail. My teenage daughter, dog, and I did this hike 7/5. No bugs, jumped in the lake! Cold but crystal clear and refreshing. Did not continue on to the next lake 1.2 miles up due to time constraints. Round trip was 2 hours including a 20-30 minute stop at the lake. Will definitely do again.

Good hike and thank goodness for my All Trails Map, we took a wrong turn and was able to find our way around with the app!
