The second half is not a trail. It leads along a road in a private development. Would not recommend.

Small waterfalls at the end of trail. But very difficult to find as overgrown trees & branches everywhere! Lots of poison oaks & hubby got a tick bite! Was ok , don’t think it was worth it !

Seems like it’s shaded since the trail is covered with trees but it was hot and I got burnt. It’s beautiful but the scenery looks the same most of the trail. No waterfalls but lots of mosquitos. Great work out because the first mile is all down hill so you know coming back you get a good sweat and leg burn.

Started off great but then it becomes hard to tell where the trail is... we ended up coming back on a street in a neighborhood.

Confused Map shows a loop trail, description says out and back. I wanted something to do after the gym so I chose this EASY trail. The first mile was a steep downhill so I turned around. Pretty tho Did I miss something?

Beautiful trail. Very poorly marked. Took Robie to Fugawoe. Up some pretty steep trail. It was a butt kicker. Then out to Sweetwater Trail Rd.

This trail is very pretty, it is mostly shaded, the Wendell T. Robie trail itself is only 0.8 miles and doesn’t include a waterfall or really any water. Would probably have to hike 5-6 miles or so to find the waterfall. However it is still very pretty, secluded, and peaceful. Maybe more water in a season when everything isn’t dried up.

Great trail! Wasn’t expecting to find so much shade in the area but the trail was almost completely covered in the early afternoon. Great views

I was searching for a trail with a waterfall. Used the filters for searching. Found this trail. No waterfall. Otherwise good trail with a kid. And it’s located in the Auburn Trails development so you have to park outside the gate and enter on foot. A couple intersections not listed in the map. Not a big deal though.

Beautiful green today but lots of poison oak, mosquitoes and spiderwebs! Still enjoyable and the creek crossings felt good! It is easy to take the wrong trail!

Beautiful moutain trail. Wear long pants for poison oak and bring bug spray - mosquitoes bit me anytime we paused. But the views were wonderful and it was shaded for a majority of the trail. You do end up on residential streets the last mile or so, but the overall experience was worth it.

This trail is not that easy to follow. The name of the trail is only .8 miles then it breaks of into other trails. Make sure you bring a map.

It started off as a great trail. But at half way, the trail becomes confusing. We downloaded the map and was following the signs, but we soon found out that the trail we thought we were following was a bunch of trails put together and some of them were overgrown horse trails not a hiking trail. We got lost and ended up in the gated community. Ended up having to follow the paved road to get back to our car. If your going to do this trail... treat it as a out and back not a loop. After the 1/2 mark it really isn’t a trail! The second half is really meant for horse ridders not hiking. Bring bug spray, LOTS of Mosquitoes and watch for poison oak.

Unimpressive trail and not worth the drive unless you live very close. Poison oak lines both sides of the trail, and there's not much else for groundcover except patches of blackberry and invasive grape. Nicely wooded with oak, fir and pine so it's very shady which is the one plus. However, the dense tree cover means there's no views either. Trail sees heavy equestrian use as well, so watch your step.

I will say a few things, it’s beautiful, lots of butterflies and views. With that being said, IT IS EASY TO GET LOST, I also don’t feel that this is a good trail for children, it is more moderate and very slim in some spots.

Nice trail away from the crowds (probably due to the uneventfullness described below). My favorite part is between the Browns Bar and the Quarry trail where it opens up into oak and meadow areas with nice views looking down canyon. Keep an eye out for horses and MTB'ers poaching the trail.

First to Review

One of many trails in the Auburn recreation area. That said, there are multiple side trails and lots of dry plants on the dirt trail. I also remember quite a bit of poison oak, but probably not anymore than any other trail in the area. The hike itself was uneventful, but the best part was the wet burrito in Georgetown at the mom and pops Mexican food place, but hike before eating, it will plug all your arteries.
