Washington hikes Map

Busy but love the easy accessibility and feeling that folks are here for a quick & beautiful hike that doesn’t requiring going all of the way to the National Parks. Great for kids, and we often take them to just the first lookout as the final push to the top can be confusing, although the views of Bremerton & Seattle are unique & worth it too!

We only walked 2 miles of it but it was nice and had bathrooms along the way. Nice views to one side and a busy road on the other.

Beautiful trail, well groomed. Didn't make the whole loop (used to easier hikes). Will try again though.

This hike is rated easy, it definitely is not! To get to the trailhead you have to take West Tiger #3, which is almost all uphill. The Talus Rocks trail is treacherous in some places, especially with all of the exposed slippery rocks. Fair warning, not a good trail for young children to try doing with their parents. The trail is fairly well maintained, though.

Scenic views of the water.

This is an excellent trail, mostly shaded, gorgeous views! Not for folks with joint issues (rocky and slippery in portions) and earns its moderate rating! However, if those who need to bring hiking poles and rest, I think most will make it to the top! There are amazing views and wildflowers in season to greet you. We had to dodge TONS of horse poop which was a bummer, I would hope the horses owners would be courteous to others on the trial and clean up after themselves but this is unfortunately not the case. This is a great hike and I highly recommend it.

My GPS calculated 4.9 miles out & back, stayed on trail. It's kept up, however beware of horse manure. I avoided a lot- fairly annoying imo. Passed a dozen folks on a Tuesday afternoon. Great view of the Three Sisters near the end. Handful of picnic tables at the top to relax & bathroom at Vista lot was clean

waterfall was dry and the rocks were dull of fallen logs dirty bathrooms need discovery pass a little disappointed:(

On the easy side of moderate. Nice views at the top.

Nice Trail that is easy on the feet and well maintained. Up at the top and on the way up there are beautiful views of the Olympics and Seattle. There is a nice area to eat lunch at the top as well.

Clean and well maintained trail. Recent fallen trees were cut out of the way. Lot of giant snails though! There is no summit view. There exists a waterfall if you hike another 0.6mi from the top. But when I went, it was more of a trickle than a waterfall. Overall you get a good workout. But it doesn't seem to be a popular trail. I have only seen 5-6 people between 7:30AM and 10:30 AM. Probably because it doesn't have a summit view.

We took our 3 kids up this trail on Memorial Day, there were a few muddy patches but overall the trail was in great shape. It’s a great hike not too challenging for a adults, for a 7 year old it definitely pushes them. The views were gorgeous and most the hike is in the shade.

This was a great trail for your furry friend! There isn’t much in terms of “views” and definitely more so for enjoying the forest and the beautiful fillings that surrounds you. There’s a nice flowing stream too and bridges to cross. The bridges could use some tightening and can be slippery so be careful!

Went on an overcast day so couldn’t see all the way to Seattle but overall a really pretty hike. Good elevation climb and mileage. Pay attention to the signage, we missed a turn once, no biggie, it just added some mileage to our hike. I would definitely do this one again. We needed a discovery pass for the Parking lot. Passed 2 horseback riders and 2 motorcycle riders while up there too.

Great walk, hard to find a parking spot though, had to park near a business. Very pretty, at 2 miles you should probably turn around, construction for 0.5 miles then you have to turn down the shopping area, if need be and you need to pee, head into the history museum. Busy road very loud, trains go buy and you can hardly relax or talk to your buddy.

The trail was clear. Downed trees mentioned in the previous review must have been removed. Some noise from the materials plant on the other side of route 900, but the noise fades and eventually disappears as you climb. We went clockwise around the loop, which made for an easier descent.

Up up up it goes, but it’s totally worth the views. Glad I did this before taking my kids they wouldn’t have liked the uphill for so long with little break. In total it was about 6.5 miles if you go to the summit for the ire of Seattle.

Beautiful loop to do with kids! My 3.5 year old was able to hike just about all of it on his own even with it being an incline pretty much all the way up. The rocks at the top are very cool to explore, my 7 year old would LOVE playing Army/running around up there so we will definitely be back. Trail is well maintained and signage is placed well. The few creeks we passed towards the top had makeshift bridges using fallen logs but were easily passable. We did this on a weekday morning to avoid the crowds that swarm that exit with all the trail heads there.

Beautiful trail with gorgeous views of the Olympics and Seattle. Will definitely do again. Another big plus are the side trails that take you down to the waterfall and the creek. Nice trail!!

Parking is NOT free. idk why the description says it is you need a discovery pass. I had to park a little way down the road. other than that, it was a great hike! the trail starts out wide and goes along the creek. there's a little turn off that takes you to a small waterfall. the trail narrows as the incline starts. lots of trail crossings but they're well marked. about 3/4 of the way up, much of the forest is cleared, which makes the view of the Olympics and Hood Canal really something special. this view is actually better than the view at the top. overall fun and easy hike!

a couple rough spots for dogs but our two enjoyed it. Also, caves!

Awesome bridges and foliage. Lots of different trails do you can make it a fun long one or a quick shorty! Definitely have to hop over some tree trunks but would do again. Not many folks on the trail either

Lush hike, lots to see in the undergrowth. Reminded that I’ve come to this same peak from a different trailhead, and that it is a peak without a vista. Caught some “Cascadian glimpses” through the trees on the Cliffs side.

Great hike, usual horse and off road vehicle company on the trail. The two outlooks on the trail are awesome.

Nice trek w a gentle climb for the fit, or gentle challenge for newbies. Clear days bring awesome views of the Olympics, and from the summit: Seattle and Mt Rainier. Sunshine brings many day hikers, and their litter. The picnic tables near the top offer a nice spot for a quick snack or extended lunch, but please pack it all out!

good tail for little ones and all ability levels. generally flat
