The trail starts out running through a heavily forested area of redwoods and douglas fir trees.. Very scenic with beautiful, towering trees. First 80% of the trail is easy with very moderate to level elevation. The remaining 20% of the trail travels beyond the Kent Lake dam with steep terrain both out and back. Somewhat disappointing that this part of the hike has only minor views of Kent Lake despite running along side of it. Access to the lake is limited due to very steep terrain. The latter 20% of the trail could be eliminated and would result in an easy 6 mile, scenic, out-back hike.
