One of my favorite short hikes. The falls and pool are beauriful. Be sure to go when the runoff is at its peak.

Easy hike, and very beautiful. Went yesterday and got there at 6am, only saw a small group of people as we got back to our car. I recommend going early to beat the crowd. Quite a bit of snow still on the ground, but I managed to go through easily with a pair of nikes.

Great place one of the best on the coast. You can take the very easy level hike or a nice big crazy one.
The view is amazing.

What a great hike! This trail was everything we had hoped for. We had a beautiful sunny day today. A little muddy especially for the first 1.5 mile or so, but well worth the mud and the effort! Not too easy, but not too hard, and the views once you get to the meadow are amazing! It was about 5.5 miles from the parking lot to the top and it’s uphill most of the way there. I highly recommend this trail, you won’t be disappointed! Wear hiking boots if you have them.

Great hike! Dog loved it too! Beautiful views! We will def be back!

I only saw two other hikers, but it was a Monday morning. There were a few muddy obstacles but were easily overcome with proper waking sticks. I would like to try this hike again mid summer. There were a few patches of snow , mostly off the sides of the trail. The trail did cross the motorized roads a few times and could hear the atv as well. It took me about 4 hours with plenty of stops between. The falls were well worth the trip!

Beautiful view of the falls but trails are closed I heard till April. Sad I didn’t get to do the hike!

I'd rate this moderate rather than easy. Not long, but the footing gets complicated between LOTS of mud, slippery rocks and tree roots everywhere. Not bad for my husband and I, but I look at 'Easy' with aging parents and small children in mind. They would have struggled.

The view is incredible the way to the view not so much!

We went in early January and it was sunny and no wind! The trail was a little muddy here and there, probably due to recent rains, but overall was easy to hike. The views are incredible! Kind of a bummer that you have to walk alongside the road for the first stretch of the trail, due to the trailhead being a short distance from the parking lot. Great hike though, will continue to make this trip!

Beautiful, short hike over packed snow. Family friendly and definitely worth it. Expect snow until mid March.

Its closed and fenced, but you can still see the waterfall

It was pretty muddy but WELL worth the hike! It’s a quick trip up and you descend even quicker. My family, including a 5 year old knocked this out in about 90 minutes total. Oh, and the view is spectacular! We all loved it.

Awesome hike. Soft on your feet and beautiful trees. The view of the pool is incredible from above. Really cold water. Heavy trafficked trail

Amazing views! Very muddy is right. It was SO DANG COLD the day we went, there was still a nice dusting of snow up there! The elk were wayyyy on the side of the hill so you could only see them from far away. Still SO amazing. Need to come back and do Hart's Cove when it's available. Decent elevation climb but a few sets of kids came FLYING by so they were having no problems haha.

Great place to hike when it's not to crowded

Pretty muddy...But an easy in and out hike with beautiful views.

Never hiked before. A buddy and I who have been working out and losing weight for a month now decided to try this out and whoa! A lot of reviews say easy - for us not so much haha! The hill at the beginning seemed like it would never end. The views are nice. The quiet is peaceful and very enjoyable. The gravel road going downhill is annoying. Some muddy places but not too bad. We were the only ones on the trail which was nice. Saw some people down by the guest house but no one on the actual trail. Reviewing on the trail itself, the views and the overall experience. We recorded 3.3 miles instead of 2.7. Also,, the elevation recorded said 581ft but the trail map we were on says 769ft at our peak. Not sure what that's about.

We are excited about exploring more trails and can't wait to keep pushing ourselves to be healthier and see some cool places along the way!

It was really challenging for someone that’s never done it before, but I loved every minute of it. I’ll be back for sure to beat my personal record.

Muddy, yes, but well worth it.

Incredible winter hike

Lovely, quiet, easy!

Amazing!! We did it in Feb in the rain and it was perfect! So beautiful!

The muddy terrain is definitely worth the great views at the end! Lots of elevation changes, so it felt like more than the 723 ft elevation change. Shaded most of the way. Wear appropriate footwear, and bring extra shoes and socks.

Wonderful hike. Can be done in about 4 hours if you don’t stop and rest too much. Creeks and foot bridges. Two waterfalls on the loop.
Gunshots are in the distance as well as dirt bikes and ATVs but they add to the idea you’re in the middle of no where back country and only those that want to be out there are.
Not too muddy but don’t recommend right after a huge rain spell. A lot of the trail is the runoff line for when it does rain hard. Some of the mud was deceivingly deeper than expected.
All around gorgeous!!

Wonderful hike! A little muddy but still enjoyable. However, I almost missed the pool! If you reach a sign that says “does not loop around” you’ve gone too far.

Awesome hike except for the mud. Great for dogs. Not a bad winter hike if you don't mind the mud. You can end at short sands beach.

We really enjoyed the easy walk with our kids and dog! The path was muddy in a lot of areas and we wish our dog could have been unleashed down the trail but it was still a nice walk!

I can’t wait for this trail to open again!
