Short trail with a cute story. Is the pretzel tree still standing? The story board tells you to turn around and shows a pic but I'm not seeing it!

Parking: There is room for one - maybe two - cars at the actual trailhead. We parked across the road about a quarter mile south next to another trailhead. Crossing the road was quite tricky, so keep your head on a swivel. Trail Conditions: The access trail is quite overgrown but easy to follow, and the road noise disappeared after the first 15-20 minutes. Lots of stinging nettles, so I recommend long pants; some gravelly bits where I slipped, so boots with good ankle support were essential. Once we linked up with the actual main trails, we found they were well-kept and extremely well marked and easy to follow. A couple of slightly muddy spots that were easily traversed. Difficulty: We hiked in on the west access trail and made the loop clockwise with a stop at Debbie’s View. The first part of the loop going clockwise was steep and constantly uphill, so our poles were very helpful here. The second part of the loop (after the turn-off for Debbie’s View) was considerably wider, less steep, and easier going. Crowds: We passed a few hikers in twos and threes, but the trail was quite lightly trafficked. Debbie’s View had about 10 other hikers all keeping their distance from each other and having lunch or resting. Most folks out today kept a polite distance or wore masks. Overall: Quite a workout for us today as this was much more constantly uphill and demanding than we’d expected, but very enjoyable nonetheless. The view was lovely, and the woods were gorgeous. We are planning to come back to try other trails near this one.

Not a bad trail- definitely moderate for people who are getting back into the swing of hiking. It is well-shaded which is nice for the sunny day we had. Once you reached the loop part, the trail gets very narrow and has thick patches of mud that you’re able to get around, but just barely. With some pretty steep inclines and the trails lined pretty closely with plant life, it definitely makes for a more exciting/exhausting part of the trip. Central Peak is just a peak; no view. There was once something there but not anymore. If you want to see the fireplace, you have to go right when prompted away from the west creek trail. It’s about a mile off your path. Debbies view is beautiful and shows off the openness of WA. The viewing area is smaller but people get distance and some were wearing masks. Seemed like many people enjoyed lunch at the spot.

Great easy hike. As usual, the AllTrails mile number is low, but not that much more. Go forth!

Minimal traffic. Great shade. Straight up then down is easy. Love the loop and options to take off the main path.

Was tough to spot the entrance. Does not have parking space, we parked nearby. Entrance is not very well maintained. Not very crowded, crossed very few people across the way. Overall good hike, Debbies point was very muddy. Not much view, but was good to be out during present time.

Great little quick hike. Due to time restrictions I skipped the loop at the top and just went straight to Debbie's View lookout, but up in 65 minutes and down in 50ish. On clear days definitely worth the trip for great views.

Fairly muddy once you get up near the perimeter trail. Debbie’s view was crowded around 1PM on a Sunday — we didn’t even stick around due to the number of people. The trail itself was fairly quiet

Beautiful trail. I would say easy to moderate. Pretty steep in places. Gorgeous views of foliage and mossy trees.

This is a pleasant trail located close to residential areas. The trail is easy, but is a steady incline, so be prepared.

Great quick hike to do with kids family dog or by yourself. The fireplace at the top is a great place to bring a snack and hang out and imagine what the house use to look like and what it was like to live there

05/29/20: A little overgrown and narrow near the top of the loop, but otherwise a great trail. Took the dogs and they had a great time.

Lovely hike that was basically empty our whole way up. Pretty muddy and buggy but no problem in some trail runner shoes. We started at 7 this morning and had Debbies View to ourselves to eat and relax for half an hour! We did see several folks coming up as we were on our way down, so I would recommend an early start if you want some alone time on the mountain. Great view of Rainier on a clear day like today!

Please note that the west side Chybinski Loop has been re-routed. It's roughly the same length but actually a much more pleasant walk. The trail is well graded and devoid of rocks. Several bridges cross the creek. A nice trail instead of the old road bed.

Hiked 5/23. Nice loop with good elevation gain. However AllTrails needs to update the recording used because the Chybinski part of the loop is rerouted (see my recording) At first I thought I had somehow gotten off trail. The new part is nice.
