A bit rainy out but not dangerous. Less than decent weather for birding. Lots of robins and flickers out

Hiked this out-and-back in late May. Beautiful weather and really lightly trafficked. Still a fair amount of heavy mud in certain spots. Going back up Trillium trail at the end is tough but overall very moderate. I did the 6 and a half miles in about 2 hours.

Short trail that takes you to other longer trails. Rocky and narrow.

Great trail until the end of the Waterline part. DON'T CONTINUE ON THE SUGGESTED ROUTE AFTER THE END OF WATERLINE (Waterline - Leif Erikson junction)! As others have reviewed, there really isn't a well marked trail where this map shows a straight route back down to the base. I did it but it's a pretty steep downward slope over a muddy, little walked "path" (read: you are OFF a real path). Doable if you're comfortable with sidestepping slowly down a minimal path with mud and the occasional slick rock. You will also have to make a short skip over a tiny creek prior to a short steep ascension back to civilization :) The short Waterline trail is the extremely muddy part of this loop with a moderate downward slope. Otherwise a great route overall. I'd just make the suggested alterations noted in the reviews at the end of Waterline - either take the Tolinda trail through Germantown or circle back to the early part of the Ridge trail via Leif Erikson.

Did this on a rainy morning on Memorial Day. Surprisingly not too crowded. Trail was muddy but it very lush and beautiful.

Great trail even though it was raining. The trees provided shelter from the rain. Many people and dogs. Everyone was friendly.

Was a great trail to test out my new Osprey Poco plus child carrier back pack and take my 4 month old son on his first true hike. The trail

Everyone knows if you let the sadness overtake you, you’ll sink into the swamp and lose your horse named Artax. I chose the worst day to complete this hike for the second time. Most mud I've ever seen on any trail. Firelane 7A down to Leif Erickson is absurdly steep. Add deep, slick mud to that and you have a 0.00001 mph hike. Kinda fun to try to keep on my feet, which I somehow managed to do. Crazy dirty pant legs though after that mess.

This loop is part of several AllTrails curated hikes, so this is the third time I've done it. This time I didn't even notice I was on the same trail as before (until about halfway trough) because I quickly selected a hike to do today without inspecting closely. Pretty muddy today due to recent rain. Lots of wildflowers. I extended the hike by going to the bottom of BPA Road. That one (not part of this route) was steep, but rare views for Forest Park.
