Love this hike, definitely a climb but so worth the view. Got up early and did it at sunrise, there was still a layer of fog on the water and the ship-man it made for a beautiful hike. It’s a challenge but a goody. Parking is limited so I recommend getting there early!

love this trail. easy to follow. challenging to do.

Been there on 2018/06/02. Very good hike. Lot of crowd. Paragliding at the same point. Near to Issaquah Front street. Has a designated parking lot but small. I would go there again.

Hike it early or late in the day if you want more serenity but I feel it’s a must do if you’re nearby. The trees and moss are just incredible, if you do it right you’ll be moved by the aura of this place. Take your time.

Nice hike and views for 3/4 of trail. The last 1/4 the trail disappeared and was very difficult to find a way out. This app helped! Next time I would do 3/4 to the point and backtrack.

Good, steep in places hike with amazing views

parking wasn't bad. the trail was fairly easy at the beginning. starts to get a slight incline a bit later but overall was an easy and relaxing hike. The way back is worse though because its mostly up hill. Seeing the old kiln is cool and if you hike past that for a mile is the river which you can eventually go down to if you want. The path to the river is a bit narrow so be careful. I'd go again. I went during the week in the early afternoon.

I went on this hike twice. It has a nice view and you could see people jumping off for paragliding. The trail is well marked and easy to find your way to the top. There’s an incline most of the way to the top but the incline isn’t steep. This is a good beginners hike and the views are definitely worth it.

great trail for beginners with amazing views

Absolutely beautiful! The walk was wonderful and doing it counterclockwise meant we saved the best canyons views for last.

Did this hike last week in the rain. Was still a great hike even in the rain. It was a bit crowded compared to some other trails, but a must do. Beautiful plants and trees during the hike. Nice waterfall at the end. Very easy hike.

I don't think I can count the number of times I've actually been to this park, I feel like it exceeds 10, 000, perfect nice easy walk for elderly and kids and strollers if this is too easy for you just Veer off the path into the hills and woods or the monument to the original Western State Hospital, Dog park, drone flying Zone, playground and fields of plenty. I hope nothing ever makes this place go away!

Amazing views!! Just need to be careful with sneaky waves and watch your steps.

Overcrowded, extremely easy.

Great little hike. Nice views of the bridge. We had read the previous reviews and did not attempt to hike around the perimeter. For families, you still need to watch little hikers near a few points along the edges.

Nice way to see ferns and Oregon grapes up close

Perfect hike for finding swimming holes!

Exceeded expectations

Beautiful casual hike but I don’t recommend trying to loop it. Next time we’ll stay on the main trail and hike it as an out and back. Everyone is right. It’s a poorly marked trail and can be frustrating if trying to loop.
Still worth it though!

Did this with my 8-year old granddaughter and son and we all had lots of fun!!

View is breathtaking

Beautiful!! Totally worth it!

Probably would’ve given this 4 stars if it weren’t for the crowds. The trail is short and easy, so it’s hard to spread out from others, especially at the end. The trail is very pretty though, although we found the trail 7-8 miles before it off the road to be nicer just in terms of serenity as well the rainforest type scenery (the name escapes me).

great training hike.
From Chuckanut it is much more difficult than from the upper parking lot or from the parking lot at barrel springs road.
great view from the top.

Beautiful!!

This is such a beautiful area. We loved wandering through the rainforest with our three kids: 6,4,2

This was definitely more of a walk than a hike. It was stroller friendly and just a great outing for me and my three kids (ages 5,3,1)

This was fun. The kids enjoyed it. So did we :)

easy short hike to beautiful falls, the mosquitos/flys were bad (use bug repellent or where long sleeves.) this is a very well maintained, very trafficked trail. visited during a Monday afternoon at the end of July and the trail / parking lot were packed.
