Beautiful easy hike/ walk for all ages

If you're in the area, go! Walk around the path and take in the amazing views of Mt. Shuksan over the lake.

We did the upper level and it was very interesting with climbing over boulders, up walls, and through tight spaces. Definitely wear layers as it's very cold in the caves (you can see your breath). Hiking boots and headlamps are a must. You will need your hands for climbing. Wished I would have had some gloves. Overall, a fun hike that was challenging but not too strenuous.

ABSOLUTELY NEED BUGSPRAY. Honestly the buggiest trail I have hiked yet this year. Like others have said, make sure you take the trail clockwise. Best hikes in morning or early afternoon. In the evening the sun sets right behind the mountain and gives poor visibility for photos:viewing with the glimmer of the ice off of Rainier’s peak.

Nice hike and views but road noise from Hwy. 20 on much of the trail.

we got the early, plenty of parking then but when leaving it was really full. The hike was beautiful and not many people.

Such a beautiful place. Sad the property owners surrounding the hiking trails are charging to park and then charging to enter the falls area. Not really necessary to double charge.

Parking was definitely a challenge. First visit on this trail. It was scenic and nice, several spots could have been wrong turns but we found our way. Not muddy at all today! Many families with small children, some thought it was a bit far to carry toddlers.

We did upper Ape cave using our cell phone flashlights (put your phone in airplane mode so your battery lasts). Really fun! Lots of bouldering and fun trying to figure out which path to take thru the rocks. The 8 foot wall wasn’t too difficult even without a rope. My husband helped us by giving us an extra foot hold - helped! Hike is not for those who have only walked on flat, 3 mile trails in flip flops haha! Absolutely wear hiking boots and enjoy!

Arrived at the TH around 8:30am with a decent amount of cars in the lot- but still available parking. Start the trail going clockwork se from the picnic area, that way you are facing Rainier during the hike, and not with your back against it. Gorgeous views throughout the trail- very scenic with lots of wildflowers. Trail was moderately trafficked. Stopped to have lunch overlooking Dewey Lake. We didn’t go down to the lake but will definitely check out next time. The bugs are terrible this year so I would recommend bug spray!!

Nice family walking spot.

Several ways to do this hike. We went up to first Burroughs. That is the 5.3 hike. The lesser loop is like 3.3. Amazing views!! Go early. Waited in line for an hour to get in the park. Easy trail till you get to Shadow Lake then moderate to top of Burroughs. Don’t miss this one!! Worth the drive!

It’s a nice little hike with a beautiful waterfall. Good activity for folks who like short hikes. During the summer there are lots of folks.

nice easy stroll in the woods. good for running too. so peaceful and green. I loved it.

Awesome hike and falls where well worth it! My 3&4 year olds crushed it with no problem ( was our second hike of the day too) only down side is a lot of people on the trail and parking was very limited

My happy place

great for whole family

beautiful! Great for kids and grandparents.

Great trail a few places not marked so well but loved the hike

It was easy hike. Love the river. Will definitely go back.

Hiked this 7/7/18 absolutely beautiful, loved being right by the raging water and all of the bridge crossings. Major bridge is crossable but at a slant. Parking and bathroom facilities available at trailhead.

Great for kids, but it can take awhile if they like to go off-roading and find things to climb on.

Nice walk through the woods that leads to a great view of Henderson Inlet. The main road that leads straight to the inlet could be easily traveled with a stroller, but if you are planning on taking the trail through the woods and you have a stroller I wouldn't recommend it because there are a few places where you have to go up and down stairs and there are spots on the trail where tree roots are out of the ground which would make pushing a stroller difficult. We had binoculars and could see seals soaking up some sun on the pier out in the water. The trail wasn't busy and is well maintained and clean.

Went today with the family.. beautiful weather. Not a lot of people. Was a little confused it said trail #1177 on direction but when we got there it was #1176, we just rolled with it and glad we did. 2 miles in we ended up at a lake (not sure if it's Echo or Lost lake) but if you keep going about a mile your ended up at another lake.

I would consider easy not moderate trail, take repellent the mosquitos on the trail are relentless. Great history, not crowded and perfect for a fun easy hike.

My 5 stars are for the trail and spectacular views, but I agree with a previous reviewer that this is not an easy trail for everyone. I am a very fit 70-year-old and found it quite a challenge. It took me 2 hours to reach the summit and 30 min to come down.
