Great Hike! Our first in Issaquah. Great for last min hike trip. Great for kids/first time hikers even though it's rated for moderate hike. Views are def worth it!!

I almost don't want to review this trail because I don't want it to get over run like Poo Poo has. What a fantastic trail. It shoots up for a mile of pretty intense climb with your first view point. Flattens out for a pretty bench and view point 2 then up for more steep climbing to reach the top. But the top of nothing it simply comes to a stop and T. Then you take Debbie's Way out to view the mountain. Very little traffic, very wooded. With taking the view points it's 3.3 miles one way up.

A great easy hike. Well maintained and not too busy!

A bit shorter and not much elevation. I would consider it a easy hike. A few pretty views but not breath taking. Geocaching treasure hidden ☺️ bring a little nic nac to leave behind if you find it!

Well maintained trail but NOT easy. Most of the elevation gain is in the first 2 miles of the Wilderness Peak Trail and of course you have to go back down those same steep parts at the end. Not for a Novice! My partner and I were having a lot of trouble with it. Nice trail, but seriously mis-labeled. (Shy Bear was great all around though.)

We took our 3 yr old, almost 2 year old twins, and 70 year old mother with a tender knee, and we loved this hike! The 3 yr old was able to walk the entire loop by himself even though the initial ascent was a bit steep. The 2 year olds walked most of the way except for the steeper bits. Mom made it through just fine as well! We saw Hairy Woodpeckers and heard a Pileated Woodpecker nearby. The creek was bone dry (8/6/17), but it was still really neat to walk along and see the rocks in the creek bed. Would love to do this again when the creek is in full force!

Wasn't what I expected. It was very dull for me & my dog. If you want a long flat hike for a few miles it's okay. But nothing special.
