I found this place thanks to this app. best place ever. so beautiful.

Nice shading, good to see some wildlife. It is short, going around the entire thing is about 2 miles. Trails get super narrow. I came around 2:00pm on a Saturday and there was little to no one around, so very peaceful.

My favorite place on earth. I grew up literally next door and spend many hours here everyday for years. This place is my happy place. I know every trail and corner. Everyone should go here at least once. Also the other two places across the lake and ghost lake (fallen leaf lake)

easy trail. very enjoyable for a Saturday hike

When we got to about mile 3 someone moved the sign and sent us in the wrong direction. We were way off track on a very hot day. Needs better signs

Went this weekend and did the full trip. Closer to 18 miles once account for for the hike to the campsites and back.

Extremely hot, coming back was more challenging than the first day. Partially because you’re sore. Partially because it’s up almost the whole way— albeit not as steep.

Biggest con is the forest area is extremely thick so there was zero breeze. Bugs were fine, but we did see snakes closer to the end of the trail. Also, it’s not quite bushwhacking level, but once you’re to the lesser travelled part it does become overgrown.

Would do again on a cooler weekend for sure.

Was out with horse group 6/23/18; walked my horse across bridge and it is so slick that neither of us could stand up mid-span. I was knocked off the bridge onto the rocks below. Be very careful whether you are hiking or bike riding, but horses, stay off the bridge! The tie area is across the bridge but don't do it, tie to the trees just before you get to the bridge and "skate" across. We were able to get my mare back across, yes she fell on the bridge, by putting dirt and gravel on it for traction. This bridge and the one around the corner, needs fall protection like the others have

Nice short outting, great for kids, mostly shade which is nice when it's warm out.

Love this trail as a daily hike. So beautiful any time of the year.

Easy, great for a quick jaunt. A few options for paths to follow. Plenty of shade.

Awesome trail. I thought the elevation graph on the map was misleading. It's really a very gradual climb for the first 2 miles then a slight downhill or flat all the way in to the falls. Only met a few people on the trail. Long stretches of open sky so bring a hat and some sunscreen. We will definitely do this trail again.

great for little kids, easy flat & wide trails. nice little creek to cool off in during the summer months.

Decent hike. It was nice that it wasn't overcrowded. I thought the views were better on the way out than in. The falls were nice; you can walk right up to the base and soak your feet in the shallow pool at the bottom. It was pretty brushy so gaiters would have been a good idea. Lots of wildflowers and butterflies.

Great hike with the kids.

Nice views and a good little work out

Good easy hike with multiple trails to hop on and off. Couple good falls as well. Minimal traffic on the not main trails.

First of all you need a WA Discover Pass for parking.
It was a wet and rainy day, so I’m sure the views are great in clear weather.
Hiking is easy going, if you go when it’s wet, definitely have waterproof pants or at least gators.

The falls are tranquil, and not high volume but still a nice reward at the end of the hike.

Loved this hike. my very good friend Laura and I did this today the only complaint was we had a bunch of ticks on his because the trail is over grown in spots, and the other sad part is when you go over road and get back on the trial it ends on another road and there are no signs saying which way to go.
steep steep steep!!

Excellent easy hike. Took our 2 and 4 year old and they had a blast.

I enjoyed it there. Trails are well groomed, several places to go relax by the lake and creeks. Playground for kids, grass areas, a lot of water activity. I’ll be back

What a fantastic trail for running. Soft pine needle covered trails with occasional views, single tracks, rolling hills, switch backs, little to no ankle rollers, and a waterfall at the end! The trail is well marked and in really good shape.

I will admit it was a bit eerie being the absolute ONLY one on the trail. Not a single other car in the lot and not a sign of of anybody else on the trail. This is now my favorite running trail in the few years I have been exploring.

I rate 3 stars because it was so confusing I went on a low traffic day so I didn’t go too far I definitely would like to go back and do the whole hike though

Trails well marked. Fun side trails not too crowded away from lake. Did woodburn and lower falls along with the loop around the lake.

the hike was great, minus all the clear cut. We seen minimal people and a few dogs. Hidden falls was great. Round trip, my Fitbit versa clocked 10.64 miles which is connected GPS, pretty accurate.

Hiked this over Memorial Day weekend and we only ran into 6 other groups, including one group on horseback. The clear-cut portions were very warm, even in May, so bring lots of water and sun-screen!

We enjoyed a nice hike today. It's a short drive from home, it wasn't crowded and we like the ups and downs. However I am giving it 3 stars because the trails are marked pretty poorly. We ended up walking twice as much. Yes we got a good workout in, but at some point it got frustrating trying to guess the right direction all the time.

Out and back 17.5 miles. Trail well marked. Nice mix of open meadows, lush forest & lots of wildflowers. Views are fantastic on clear day. Took a little break at Cold Creek day use area and headed back. Day use area has no trash cans so be prepared to hike your garbage out with you. Saw animal droppings, looked like belonged to horses as they also use trail.

awesome trail had a great time.

Went out on Sunday was a nice hike despite the clear-cut. I loved hidden falls walking right up to the bottom of the falls was my favorite part.

Get here EARLY and I can’t stress that enough lol. Wonderful very easy hike for the whole family. I seen little children ages 2-3 that were hiking just fine. Little to no elevation gain but all of the falls are amazing. BEWARE: The Trail can definitely be confusing at times.
