Few downed trees, but easy to manuveur over. Nice stroll through nature.

Easy-mod hike. Great peaceful neighborhood trail.

Very peaceful hike. You can hear the creek the entire time. Very spiritual for a full moon/lunar eclipse day.
With the recent rains, it was pretty muddy, but fine if you have waterproof hiking boots. At the end I was able to rinse the bottoms of my boots in the creek. Bring a towel for your dogs feet or you may have muddy paw prints in your car. Enjoyed every minute.

I’d say this is more easy than moderate and that’s coming from someone totally out of shape. The elevation gain is pretty much all in one spot of the hike. For the most part the trail is dry but there are a couple spots that are pretty muddy. There are quite a few different starting points to choose from as well.

Nice, easy hike, just a couple of short climbs. One really muddy patch about .75 miles in but otherwise a beautifully maintained trail. Peaceful other than an area where new construction is right on top of the trail. The falls were underwhelming but they’re probably more impressive when it’s wetter. Saw a couple of golden-crowned kinglets, a wren, and some towhees as well as the ubiquitous sparrows and juncoes.

I would recommend this trail for anyone looking for an easy hike/walk. Good for dogs and kids. It was quite muddy and there were 3 creek crossings of increasing difficulty. Nothing that takes a daredevil but your feet may get wet. The weather was great and the falls were beautiful!

Went with my best friend Monday afternoon around 3, took our time and ended up hiking back to car in the dark. Well worth it, just make sure you have flashlights or prepare unlike us and go earlier. I cant wait to go back when it’s warmer and go swimming.

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.

This is a pleasant walk in the woods. Gets a little muddy/slippery but it mostly well maintained. Watch out for bikes and horses. Lots of options to make this longer. Though I haven't used them, there are bathrooms at the parking lot.

Just wanted to correct some misconceptions: 1) Out & Back: Yes, you do have to come back down the same way unless you are OK with road walking (go down West Access to SR900 & head south), but there are loops to be done from the top, and future connections farther down. To make it a one-way, park a second car at West Access, Mountainside Drive, or Sequoia Court trailheads. 2) View area & privacy. The view area with bench (below Debbie's View) is better than D'sV and quite spectacular. Don't worry about bothering the neighbors, as all the houses (largely out of sight) were built or bought after the viewpoint was developed so they know the deal. 3) Shooting (also barking dog). This is on a privately owned ridge north of the park & doesn't occur often or for very long.

Plenty of parking, pretty muddy. But pretty

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.

Absolutely love this trail! The first mile is a bit steep, then the trail levels out a bit in mile two then has some great switchbacks in the third mile. Perfect for repeats.

Not a technical trail at all, it's paved and is split into 2 lanes along many parts of it.

$101 fine if you go over 10 mph on a bike, so if you're not going at a leisurely pace, stay away

Hiked today (Jan-5, Sat), arrived around 11am, there is not much parking but was plenty of space today, not a high season. Trail is easy and in a pretty good condition, muddy sometimes, but nothing bad. Main challenge was the Hannan Creek crossing near the falls. There is a fork and loop on the second part of the trail, you can go left or right, both trails go to the falls. I took the left trail and that was a mistake, creek crossing on the left side was worse than on the right, it was not easy to cross without getting wet. There are some logs and rocks but pretty slippery and you have to jump. I wish I had my poles with me just for this crossing, left mine in the car for this easy hike.

My suggestion - take the right trail, there is a crashed car right after the fork, so you will know what place I am talking about. Creek crossing is smaller on this side and there is a big tree over it, which you can use for easy crossing. Then after the falls you can try the other side of the trail to go back, if you can’t make the crossing there, it’s not far at all to return and go back the same way. And, as I mentioned, poles will be helpful for creek crossing. Unless you are fine with wading through the creek and get wet.

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

this trail is great to hike. it's an easy flowing trail with very little steeps. covered in foresty trees and a fun broken down car thats become apart of the trail itself as well. The water fall itself was beautiful and peaceful. Unfortunately the trail road itself heading back was difficult to determine for us, it took us awhile to head back because we missed a turn, wish there were better markings to get back on the trail. All in all it was a very peaceful hike. We did this hike sometime in the beginning of January 2017.

Passed about 6 people on the trail today. There are 2 places where crossing the stream/river could be a bit tricky, let’s just say waterproof boots can only do so much when the water is above your ankles. Overall, it was easy and well maintained, just plan better than I did for the water - 2.5 miles in soggy, loudly squishing boots isn’t the most fun.

Great hike! History of the area is interesting

This seems like a nice trail but we only got about a half mile before the constant and loud sound of gunfire from a nearby shooting range freaked out our dog and forced us to turn back. If you or your canine friend are bothered by the sound of gunfire this might not be the trail for you.

Beautiful! On our own... light traffic...several viewpoints! Little muddy. No snow yet. Rain held off today! Hallelujah! Wonderful first full day of winter!

Trail is mostly cement with about 3 miles or so of gravel. Gravel on the side of the trail too. Great view of the lake from the trail.

Very scenic trail as it runs along the Sammamish River for miles. Flat and paved, but there is enough gravel/grass off to the side for people (like me) who need to run on softer surfaces. Definitely one of my favorite trails.

Road is closed 3mi before the trailhead. Plan ahead to hike to the trail or use a snowmobile. Didn’t manage to get to the trailhead so giving a neutral rating.

A beautiful waterfall. There are a few fallen trees and branches along the way from the windstorm but you’re still able to get around. The trail is still well maintained. Saw a good amount of people on the way to the falls and back. Once you get close to the falls there is a stream you have to cross yet the water was too high without some proper water shoes. We were able to climb across a fallen tree to get to the other side. I’d recommend this to friends

Lovely Park. Great place for walking your dogs and yourself. It’s unleash dog park with huge room to roam around and be free. I took my dogs here twice a week. Parking ticket it’s only $1.00. There is a lovely garden. Great place to visit in the summer. No dogs allowed in the garden. There is also dog wash across from the garden inside Marymoor Park.
I absolutely love the change of color from Summer go Fall. I can’t wait for Winter and Spring so I can see the beauty of all seasons.

First half of the trail has a marked path and is cleared fairly well. Once it splits the trail can get muddy and narrow in points, but we were hiking in november. There's definitely a few wet areas to cross so need to make good shoe decisions if you plan on hiking off season. The final creek crossing before the falls has a tree to crawl over or a 1' deep swift, cold, fast moving wet path - took our shoes off and carried the 7 year old over and let the 10 year old crawl the tree.
