Nice, easy, short trail. Lots of interesting trees and a cool bridge. Be sure to take the short detour to see Big Cedar Tree. It’s no longer standing but still awesome. Don’t forget to climb in the roots for a cool pic!

A nice easy stroll through near the river. Nothing spectacular, but well maintained and convenient for walking into town from the WorldMark resort.

Fun little family jaunt.

This loop is beautiful! We got some many great fall pictures! It’s a really easy hike but the river and trees surround you are great! Worth the time! Follow all our adventures on Instagram @themicrotourists.

Beautiful water! Easy strolling trail but loved it.

Magical hike through the rainforest. I never tire of how the light flickers in and out and highlights the beauty of these special woods.

I did this trail on Sept 9th (took about 3 hours), and it was breathtaking despite the cloud cover! Get there early to beat the crowds. I started at 8:30 am and took the little dirt path to Sunrise Rim trail towards Emmons Glacier overlook, inclined via Burroughs Mountain trail to 1st Burroughs Mountain, and came back down via Sourdough Ridge trail. The incline might be a small challenge for beginners since it's on a narrow trail at the edge of a cliff, but more experienced hikers would consider it a piece of cake. Nice weather, no bugs, and no ice on the trail. The scenery is diverse... forests, rivers, lakes, meadows, and at times barren, rocky alpine conditions. Coffee and a black bean burger at the lodge were much needed before the drive back to Seattle. Overall, worth it for the views!

What a gorgeous trail tucked away in Olympia! It was lush and rich. The bridges and staircases were visually appealing and we were able to pop down onto the beach for a stroll there before finishing the loop. We loved the carved bears hiding here and there and also the wonderful views of the Capitol building across the water.

Little muddy though. Went in June.

Beautiful part of a bigger loop. Lush rainforest is magical to behold.

Very beautiful & well maintained but also very over crowded.

nice trail. could be dangerous on rainy/muddy day. 600 year old tree was pretty cool. bathrooms are nice after the hill

good trail for beginners like littles. my kids do fine 5,4, and 22mo.

Wanted to do this one again before October, but sadly the trail is closed until May 2019. Guess I’ll have to wait ‘til then...

This location holds a special place in my heart as where I got engaged and where we choose to do our engagement photos. Exited to finally actual hike it today!

So beautiful... tons of hikes and camping. This is a must see!!!

This is a busy paved community trail that is perfect for jogging or strolling. No hiking gear is needed.

Fantastic family hike. We loved that it was a loop trail instead of the typical out and back that most hikes are. We recommend that you take the trail clockwise, especially if you are taking kids. Clockwise seems to have more upfront things to look at, while counterclockwise starts out with about a mile of forest views that are serene, but not as engaging as the falls and rapids you get going clockwise. Overall a truly enjoyable outing for our whole family.

The first time I was at Goldmyer Hot Springs was in January of 1978, I think. The bridge at Taylor River Campground was out, so we hiked in (12 miles or so). Being January, it was cold, but the year we were up there was a very light snow year. When my friend and I got there, there was a couple leaving, who had occupied the only standing cabin from the old resort. We got it for the time we were there. Totally dilapidated, but homey. From that point forward we were in a wonderland, trails leading to all kinds of derelict mechanisms, and to the springs. Being in that generation, and having read In Watermellon sugar, we identified this as "The Forgotten Works," and with headlamps explored all around. Everything was covered in ice crystal which gleamed in the night; this is one of my greatest memories of the 70s. Rest of the time we basked in the springs. I look forward to returning.

Trail is currently closed

The very beginning 15 minuets where the toughest as we were also carrying heavy overnight backpacks. But the rest of the trail was very easy and beautiful.

It was breathtaking.

Beautiful, short, easy hike. German Shepherd loved the water. Great place to end the day after other hikes in the area

Great, easy hike. Lake is absolutely beautiful, could spend the whole day there. Took German Shepherd and wasn’t quite enough to tire him out.

Really nice paved trail to an awesome photo spot. Took the Salamander trail back which was packed dirt and beautiful as well. Runs right back to the parking lot. Noway to get lost.
