nice trail overall, offers lots of different scenery throughout. was moderately steep in the beginning but leveled out. my only "complaint" would be that it was quite muddy near the end - i got to about 2.5mi and encountered a lot of really thick (quicksand-like) mud and lots of devil's club on the trail. turned back at this point because i didn't want to risk slipping into a bed of thorns! but overall great trail, definitely wear shoes that are okay getting completely wet and muddy. very lightly trafficked.

Leisurely flat gravel walk. Lots of berries. Very muddy in places.

Easy walk/ hike. Lovely environment. Great length without much elevation change. I rarely meet anyone. A couple opportunities to shorten the trek.

Definitely a fun hike. The trail gets a little steep but not too bad. There is a lot of muskeg area. It is very similar to John Muir Cabin Access, except slightly longer. The views are absolutely gorgeous! The trail keeps going beyond the cabin but in winter it is pretty easy to get lost up there.

Very fun! The trail is slightly steep on the climb up, but views are spectacular. A very good place to mountain bike. The trail is well maintained for the most part, but it does get a little muddy at some places in the muskeg.

Beautiful views the whole way up with a waterfall almost at the top. After about ten minutes in its like your doing a stair stepper the whole way up so be prepared !

Relaxing hike! We did not run into many people. About a mile or so in, we hit snow. Wear the proper shoes so they will not get wet. Going to the cabin made it rewarding!

Good trail for families with little kids. Not very scenic.

Not sure why this trail is called Spaulding meadows. 2 very small meadows. Both muskeg. 1st meadow is the only one with a view of Auke Bay and it’s a limited view. Nice for exercise but on a sunny day you don’t get see much sun on this trail. Very muddy after the rains...

This is a trail for locals who want to do a quick climb for exercise. It's not very scenic or exciting. Feels shorter than the 2.5 miles listed. Road is fairly paved. One picnic table near the top, but the view is just ok.

Trail across beautiful lansdcape, through a boggy soft surface that are mostly provided with a narrow planks as a shared walkway. You might encounter some hunters in the season. During the day, can stop in the cabin.

I went up the trail with my bag full of camping stuff to stay in the cabin for 2 nights. I went back to hike it again without the bag and it’s a lot easier. Lots of board steps, it’s like a step and half for each which can be quite annoying but the view at the top was worth it. once i got to the cabin i decided to go up the rest of the mountain and i couldn’t find a trail so i just went up the side, it was not fun at all but again at the top is was very very worth it.

Loved this trail, very easy for a nice stroll. Would be a great place for trail running. Saw some men salmon fishing. Great camping spots too. A few geocache spots too!

Nice and easy hike. Bus stop just across from Ward Lake Road makes getting to and from simple. 1/2 Mile quick hike up Ward Lake Road leads to Frog Pond Trailhead easily connecting with numerous trails in the area. Ward Lake has a loop trail around it roughly just over a mile in length. Nice scenery and very flat wide gravel trails. Bus runs on the hour and this is a great quick hike after visiting Totem Bight State Park. $5.00 all day bus pass well worth it and an inexpensive way to get away from downtown for a few hours.

Nice hike but you can’t get to the lake. It is nice and steep. Good cardio.

Nice flat trail with several access points. Follows a pipeline from Connell Lake dam down to Ward Cove. At one point you have to walk along the road for a couple hundred feet to connect the sections of trail. Beware, there are a few spots where the pipeline is leaking and forms puddles on the trail. It's an easy walk (but long), and an easy bike ride (but a bit bumpy/rocky).

Nice easy wide road to walk on. Took me about an hour total. Would be a neat spot to picnic! You can't see much of Whitman Lake because of the dam, but you can see part of Deer Mtn ridge above the lake. Might be a good trail for a quick bike ride (if you want to push your bike up the steep hills.)

Nice wide trail. I did it this last spring for the first time, so this was my second time walking it. I had forgotten how nice and gravelly it is (very little mud!!) Neat view of Brown/Diana & Ward/Juno mountains. Could not find the educational/interpretive signage for Site 1 though... wonder what happened to it.

Beautiful views bring sandals your feel will get wet. There is no "your done here" clear end. You will hit medow, forest, medow, forest and eventually end up in a beautiful medow on the top. You lose the trail in the medow but can follow the pink and orange flags in tree branches then finally lose them . it's breathtaking at the top(if its clear) and worth the wet muddy feet.

Beautiful trail with plenty of great views for photos. Trail is mostly all 2x4 boards that are put together to create steps. Make sure you are ready for tons of stairs. Going done is rough due to the boards but the cabin and view from the top is worth it. Went during dry spell and 74 degrees outside but could tell that the trail would be slippery if it wasn’t for the boards. Reached cabin in 1hr 15mins which was perfect.

Needed a little climb to prepare for Mount Roberts so this was close and easy to access. Pleasantly surprised that there were boardwalks over a lot of the boggy area. Didn't find the "top" of trail but enjoyed the sights in between. Even saw a yearling? black bear!
