Beautiful Loved it

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.

Great hike very few people. Nice view at the top my altimeter said 1574 feet of elevation from the parking lot.

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!

Nice and private! Be sure to go in a clear day, I missed out on the view.

This is one of the prettiest hikes I’ve done in the area. Not too hard and beautiful views.

Great trail and kind people. Will come back for the peak on a nicer day. Grey today but peaceful

We took our kiddo in our hiking backpack on a rainy day and this couldn’t have been more beautiful! Lightly trafficked (that day) and we came across a few pups off leash. I will say that some of the trail was washed out closer to some of the steep areas which made it difficult with our child, but it was worth it!

One of the best trail experiences I have had in the area; the sights, ecosystem, rainforest feel. Love it!!

This is a VERY steep hike but worth it for the views. There are a few “pull off” spots where you can catch your breath and sit down if need be.
The views are phenomenal and nice spot to eat a snack.

Very thick snow on the trail, especially close to the summit. It was very slippery and hard to climb for the last few hundred yards because of all the snow covered slopes. The view was spectacular.

I would not rate this as moderate. Going up the nook trail was doable but the section line trail was definitely difficult for me. View at the top not worth the effort going up this way in my opinion. Next time..if there is a next time I would do West Tiger 3 going up and down.

The scenery was gorgeous going up!! There’s spots where the trail is quite overgrown and although it’s a shorter hike, it was definitely not easy. I’d say whoever labeled it has not hiked it before. There were some gnarly steep spots. But the view at the top was great since I went on a hot, sunny day!

Great trail and an easy hike. Some places there are splits that aren't marker with any signs so make sure you use GPS. View was worth it. also the trailhead right at the end of the bridge isnt marked super well. GPS was extremely useful for this hike !

We started out from the W Tiger 3 trail. My 6 year old took some time to hike up to the Talus Rocks trailhead but once we got there the rest of the hike was easy. There were a couple interesting log bridges and the rocks were quite unique. Hike down can be a bit slippery. We have seen a few hikers but not too busy.

Great hike! A little hard to find the trail in a few spots, but following past hiker’s tracks helped. Nice route to Dirty Harry’s Balcony.

5/29/2018 (Tuesday) -- This should be currently taken as the only trail leading to Dirty Harry's Balcony. The other previously "official" trail seems closed permanently. This trail is much more interesting than the old one. It seems being built in different periods, some sections look older, others newer, neatly laid with rocks. Yet, the starting point of this trail at the end of the bridge is not clearly marked, so it seems this trail has not been officially completed and opened. Numerous switchbacks grade the route up to 1.5 miles, then the opening shows the view of the I-90 corridor in both directions, and mountains on the opposing side of I-90. This trail is used very lightly.

We started at high point and followed Tiger 3 up until the fork towards Talus Rocks. Unfortunately the kids melted down at this point so we turned around. About a mile to the fork. It was a good hike and I would do it again!
