Beautiful Fall hike up to a tree-framed view of the tip of Mount Baker and just a hint of Lake Whatcom below. Oodles of mushroom varieties to be seen along the way (in October). Take a left at the loop if you want to get the elevation gain early and have a shallower descent coming home.

I thought I had reviewed already! great training hike going through some great changes! may become part of the Galbraith trail network! Lots of work being done on this trail!

this trail is in my neighborhood and l do it on a regular basis. Now is undergoing a great change. It looks like is going to be also part of a mountain bike trail! we're very close to the Galbraith trail network. So excited!

Pretty decent trail. I did the upper trail and it was a good incline most of the way. I wish the view at the top showed a little more, probably wouldn't be worth it if it wasn't a completely clear day. But I still enjoyed it!

I've rated this with a lone one star: Upper Loop (2.2 miles) is a fairly steep incline to an unimpressive lookout view. On a positive note this hike was close to where we live and excellent for exercise to get your heart pumping! My legs are a bit sore .

As of July 13th, 2018 the overlook at the top of the upper trail is CLOSED.

Notes for Newbies Like Me:
The Lower Loop is a good short hike, some small hills but overall good.
The Upper Loop is 2.2 trail. The first mile of that trail is completely uphill, it’s a pretty steep climb.

Nice wooded hike, definitely a glute workout!

Good morning hike.Short but good exercise.

Great loop trail with thigh burning climb. Trail is maintained by city. Parking lot is clean with bathroom on site. Will definitely hike again. Lower part of trail is perfect for trail running.

Great hike, only did lookout loop with added look out trail to top. Will come back to check out other loops. Great early morning hike with no others on trail.

Great work out! I loved the variation in trails. We got a bit lost at first but it was definitely worth it!!

Beautiful hike, and right out back of the house

Great hike, did the Lower and Waterfall loops and plan to go back to do all three!

hell of a hike gets cardio going but disappointing view. overgrown but a sliver of the lake you can see.

This was so excellent and beautiful.

trail was nice, view was amazing, too many dogs off leash jumping on you for a five star rating

Close to home so it's a natural. Great trails and logging roads for running or hiking. Some areas are a bit steep but worth the effort. Take time to stop and check out the falls if it's been raining

Great family hike!

very easy hike, imo. very worn trails, marked well. map in parking lot very helpful. I feel like this will still be accessible in winter for a chilly run.

Nice place for an easier home. Some of the trails were slightly confusing/hard to follow.

was a nice variety of easy to moderate hiking

My aunt literally lives across the street, so I do this trail every time I come visit Washington. Good Workout. Good Inclines. depending on the trail you take, will depend on the difficulty. still trying to figure out how to get to the. bottom of the waterfall, lol.

This place was sweet!! Lots of hills. We only went to the waterfall loop but climbed down the 60% grade right to the base of the waterfall. Very fun!!!

Almost like a choose your own adventure... So many sweet trails and loops to choose from! I only did the mountain loop and the waterfall trail, easy and beautiful!

Descent run in a great area. However however the mileage is wrong, the loop is 2.2 miles with several fingers shooting off, each no more than 1/2 a mile.

Read the sign before you start. The trail is off the access road but doesn't have a sign. Lower loop does at access rd. But not the main lookout trail. I and many others have hiked the access road waiting for the view to come.. 4.25 miles.. 2160 ft in elevation, I finally turned around. Great work out! Lol but now know where to go! Next weekend!
