Reward yourself with a great view at the top of the trail!

Great quick and easy hike. Went on a weekday not too much traffic.


breath taking views

Nice hike through the woods. When I got there (Monday) the parking lot was packed, but there are so many routes and trails in this park that the trail I was on was uncrowded! Really enjoyable waterfall and creek. No views, but I really enjoyed my walk. Nice and peaceful. Will return to do Long View Peak in a few weeks.

It’s somewhat crowded at the summit. And the view is just so-so. But the trail itself is quite nice.

Nice quick hike with a waterfall in the middle.

Super fun hike, did it a couple weeks ago. Although both parking lots were overflowed, there was enough room up top to really enjoy it! Really rewarding views

We hiked in early March. Still snow packed in some areas but views are beautiful at the top! Was confused by all of the turf laid out at the top until we realized it was for paragliders!

Aptly challenging trail with views worth the sweat at the top.

Loved this route.

Not bad, just okay.

Great hike! The views are amazing and it is fun to watch the paraglider.

Beautiful Views, trafficked, good season opener.

It was quite muddy today but well worth the sweat. The view at the top was very rewarding!

Amazing view at the top!

It has a new entrance since the last time we were there. Cold at the top, a little foggy but great view and we did it in record time...for us...after a knee injury and a few years removed.

Went with a few friends and it was amazing. I loved following the curve of the hill. :)

It was busy but enough space to spread out on the top, pretty views and well shaded for the hike.

Soooooo out of shape

It’s been snowing all week and the full hike (from beginning of Denny Creek rd) was just beautiful. The falls were half way frozen and it was great to experience. I went alone so it was nice to see a decent amount of people there.

Went on a Friday afternoon, not very crowded was a short hike to falls. Was a decent hike up the hill after the falls to the junction with the John Wayne trail. Will do more often as we cross the pass.

Pulled into the last parking spot of the trailhead around 9 am. Very busy hike so earlier the better. Had lunch at the less busy, first viewpoint overlooking big si. Great sunrise or morning hike when you don't have a full day available.

This is a good first hike of the season. It’s steep from the start, then it’s flat for a while, then it’s steep at the end. Got a good workout without getting too sore the next day.

Ps, it’s definitely around 4.2 miles instead of 3.6.

Beautiful sunny, warm day for a beautiful hike. Tons of people and dogs. The trip was still gorgeous though. Good season opener.

Definitely a fun, manageable hike. Gets a little busy on the weekends so get there early if you don’t want to either get lucky, or wait for a parking space (we saw people had parked off-site from the trailhead and walked in). All and all it was a good time going up. A little muddy/slippery toward the top right now, so be careful!

good trail, very busy but the views we're with it.

Great day for family hike. Busy so we parked on the road outside parking lot. Not muddy and river views were exceptional. A little up and down to get to falls but well worth the effort. Great for kids of all ages!

Roads were closed on both sides. Ended up hiking a total of 8 gorgeous miles today. The wagon trail is not open, don't take that as a loop back as one of the signs suggests... you'll end up walking through very deep snow. TAKE ICE CLEATS! The whole main trail is compacted snow and ice. One hiker slid down the hill at the falls today but was able to get back up. The trail right at the water fall is steep and icy, be extremely cautious. GORGEOUS hike though!!!

This was definitely a moderate hike, but only on the way up and you’re treated with a beautiful view at the end. It was a pretty busy Saturday at lunchtime, but regardless of the narrow trail at times, people and animals were patient and respectful. Going down can be a little steep so I recommend hiking shoes with good traction. Dogs also really enjoyed the hike and made a few friends along the way.
