Although the East Fork is shown as moderate, be aware that the loop, which includes the West Fork is rated at hard. I totally agree that the loop trail is a HARD trail. Not only was the elevation up and down mostly on the West Fork, the ground was slippery in many places on both Forks and there were fallen trees we had to climb over and under, especially on the East Fork.

Perfect trail for all types of birds. we spotted hummingbirds and many other hard to find birds. The trail is not much on views but perfect for flowers and birds

Very beautiful hike, lots of diversity in herbaceous understory including ferns, wildflowers, and mosses. Friends and I hiked this trail early fall; however, given the hike along the ridge line I can imagine this hike offers even more views in winter during leaf-off. The overlook is located off a spur trail near signs for campsites. The valley of the overlook is primary agriculture but still offers great views of the surrounding mountains. At the first fork my group kept left and after we departed the overlook but before we got to the waterfall we experienced a gully that was supposed to be a trail but due to the lack of switchbacks and steep topography was highly eroded. Hikers with small children or knee issues should use caution.

very beautiful! great views for the selfies or just great views in general....did a short trail that they had near the tent site. only.25, but it is down hill all the way and stairs too...so if u going down hill going in then u know what that means....straight up coming out. great leg work out! waterfall at the end wasn't nothing to brag about.

The Edmonds backcountry trail can be strenuous! Great elevation and beautiful fern filled forests. Stunning view from the main overlook!!!!
