It's an easy hike that follows the river. I don't think we ever found Moulton Falls but we continued and saw Lucia Falls. There are zero signs on the trail. I took the advice of previous people and took a picture of the map, though that didn't help us. I'll give it 3 stars for being easy, having pretty enough views of the river the whole time. However, it's crowded and the falls remain a mystery to me.

Stunning falls. beautiful clear blue water. pretty easy hike. We had a perfect winter day, not too busy, but I can see where it would be in the summer. Seriously gorgeous though

I wouldn’t go out of your way to the park area. As others have said there’s a lot of homeless and suspicious activity going on. I didn’t feel comfortable alone. The rest of the trail seems okay.

A great place for an easy hike. Just don't go in the summer if you don't like crowds.

Nice trail so close to the city. No particular views or so, just nice forrest. Definitely second part up to wildwood trail made the difference. There the trail gets more narrow with less people. One moderate hill in the middle, fairly flat for the rest. Parking might be a challenge on busy and sunny days.

Gorgeous river and waterfalls!

I'm so sad that this trail is closed. I had some really amazing memories there.

Amazing beauty with old growth and stunning waterfalls.

Defaulted to this trail after seeing how rutted the road to Silver Star/Ed's Loop is.

I was on this trail Saturday 1/5/19 and came across what appeared to be large cat scat (essentially a very large hair ball) that was very fresh. There were also older piles along the way. I'm not well versed on identifying scat but it was enough for me to turn back. Please be careful.

Went today January 5th, saw 4-5 other groups the entire time. Absolutely gorgeous waterfalls. The water was very clear/blue. The forest was covered in moss and everything was very green.

The road to the trailhead is pretty bad - lots of potholes - but totally worth it. I hear this trail is very crowded in the summer. I’d highly recommend going in the winter if you want to experience it with less people around.

Super easy out and back. Went on a crisp January day, damp and overcast with about a dozen people on the mostly paved trail with me.

Well kept trail. Not very scenic throughout. Easy and flat. Saw Egrets and Great Blue Herons.

Went on a cold rainy December day. Thank goodness for rain gear. It was amazingly beautiful!! The waterfalls were raging

Great place to run, have to dodge horse poo but usually never see horses. Trails are generally flat but some good hills mixed in. Love running here!

Love this trail and I’m lucky it’s right in my backyard

Beautiful view of a snowy MSH. Saw a bear in the lower clearcut area.

It’s okay, not a great hike but a decent place if you want a fast bike ride.

Hiked this trail mid day Saturday and for the 4 hours it took me to finish I didn’t see one other hiker. Definitely a plus and the waterfall is beautiful

Fun long run with my lab today. First time being on the trail. Passed 8 people, all but 1 were within the first mile. Trail is marked efficiently so you do have to look for the markers in a few areas, specifically the road crossings.

Beautiful and relaxing easy hike for my dog and I. I will definitely go back.

Gorgeous hike with so many waterfalls! It’s busy because of the beauty and ideal for most hiking skills. Get there early and don’t complain about others wanting to enjoy this spectacular hike. Watch for slippery rocks. But enjoy God’s country!

Some really steep short sections with sharp switchbacks, but overall nice forest scenery. No major focal points of interest.

This is a beautiful hike.

Beautiful trails and scenes. This is a series of loops- do all of them for about 3.5 miles. We went about a week ago and the giant maple leaves fell the whole time with yellow sun rays shining through.... damp floor covered in leaves and mushrooms... songbirds and frogs singing constantly. There’s no major feature, but it is some beautiful hiking. Mostly flat. Easily jog-able. Loved it. And the horse poo just didn’t really bother us that much, to be honest.

This portion of the trail was an easy stride and full of autumn beauty! Great year round trail.

This was a beautiful hike. Great time of year. No bugs. Easy in and out. Great for kids and dogs.

This place is beautiful and peaceful but the horse owners do not pick up the horses waste like they are supposed to which is very inconsiderate. There is horse shit literally everywhere. This place would be perfect if it weren’t for that.

Good hike, wasn't muddy like I thought it would be with the recent rain. The beginning is pretty steep for most people so I wouldn't bring children. The rest is relatively easy. If you plan to park a car a both ends to only hike 8 miles then make sure you have a Discover pass. Because as we know WA likes for all of us to purchase yet another pass to add to our collection. Or you can do the full 16 (17 if you account for the walk to the parking lot) and park at the falls. There are two road crossings between miles 2.5 - 3.5. For the first, follow the road downhill to the left, then there will be a wooden sign to reenter the forest on the left after about 100 yds. The second crossing take a right, then almost immediately (about 10ft) look to the left side of the road for your trail. There is a small marker post with the blue trail sticker on it. The rest of the trail is straight forward and well marked with mile markers every half mile. We will definitely hike this trail again in the future.

I did the section that starts at Lakeshore Ave and stopped at Hazel Dell Ave. it was a quiet and pretty little trail starting out. We did end up walking by some houses and yards towards the end though, which is to be expected with a trail in the city.
