been there last summer. it was my first hike in Washington. the view was amazing but the hike was kinda hard and I don't recommend this to beginners

great hike and loved the view of falls

moderate hike worth the view at the top.
hiked it with my kids on a Saturday afternoon and it wasn't very busy (must have been a perfect time to go).
5 year old daughter did the trail easy up and back.
8 year old son complained the whole way (but he complains about everything).
spent time by the water after watching some hawks fish, one of them caught one. it was cool.

I love this hiking.

Nice climb up to a decent view. A popular place! Parking was okay, but the trail and viewpoint was crowded. Lots of dogs which partly made up for the lots of people. Still, a nice, moderate hike not far from the city.

short, but steep hike for conditioning purpose. did it non-stop and took about 50 mins at my pace with a group of friends going up.
the view is good, both from cherico point and poo poo point which is further up.

parking lot is free. took 25 mins from bellevue. great location and great trail.

Very crowded but good bang for your buck - quick out and back that can take less than 2 hours. Great view from the top!

Beautiful view when you get to the top. Definitely worth the hike.

Been there on Sunday 08/11/2018. Enjoyed the hike but did not like the fact that there are no view points (no creeks, no waterfalls or no high views), it was all dry. The tail path is wide and good. I guess this trail is rated Hard because of the elevation and the distance. Took 4 hours to the top and 2.5 hours to come back. Less crowd. Not much sun light. It was all rocks at the top. The view from the top is good. Near to North Bend Downtown and easily accessible, decent parking lot. Restrooms are horrible.

I love this hike, but prefer to do it during the week (early) as it gets very, very busy! I never get tired of the view from the ledge.

Always a good strenuous hike/run. Today did two loops to the summit. Lots of friendly people out there today, appreciate everyone moving off to the side for this old guy running.

A definite favorite! Have your forest pass worked out beforehand - we wasted some time with this.

Lovely hike close to Seattle. Can be crowded.

Easy trail. Plenty of parking today at 930AM. Variety of hikers. Lots of people (as is the case with the influx of people to Seattle). Outstanding view.

The beginning of the hike is easier and runs along side a river. You’ll start to hear the waterfall as you hike deeper and start to gain a little elevation. There is a fabulous lookout point with benches to enjoy the view of the waterfall from afar. The hike becomes a slightly harder with lots of change in elevation towards the waterfall. There are no signs on the trail. We ended up at the upper falls spot first and then went back down towards the lower falls lookout afterwards. Gorgeous hike!!

Good hike.
A LOT of people thought so.

Good exercise, parking was full at 9am but overflow for $5 was nearby and empty at that time. Dog friendly on leashes.

Great workout. Not much for views until you get to top. Scramble the haystack for a fantastic valley and Mountain View.

Not scenic until you reach the top. Good hike and the view at the top is worth it, but there are much better hiking destinations in Washington.

Overall good family friendly hike, it is busy though.

Such a great hike with incredible views at the top!

This is my go-to trail. No discover pass required and its close to my home. Its short enough to be completed within 2 hours, but has enough elevation to get a good cardio workout.

At the first viewpoint, you face south and should see Mt Rainier. On a clear day like today, I should've been able to see it. However, I haven't seen any traces of Mt Rainier for a while now. I'm guessing its due to the smoke caused by wildfire.

The second viewpoint is much better with N and NW views. This is the paragliding launchpoint.

One of my favorites for shorter hikes.

HEAVY TRAFFIC!!! A lot of people on this hike and a lot of novice hikers so be cautious, but pretty easy accent couple steep switch backs but all in all took an hour up and an hour down at slow easy pace! Would recommend for dates or just a quick day hike.

Very doable, very pretty views of the waterfalls!

Fun way to spend a hot day! Views from upper and lower falls are gorgeous!
