Beautiful mature Douglas Fir forest with lots of Vine Maple and fern undergrowth. Crosses many creeks, steep canyon drop off, lots of forest shade, not very crowded. Access via Saltzman Rd, from either Skyline Blvd or US Hwy 30.

Great trail. Lots of fall colors. Make sure you take a look at Mt Rainer, Mt St Helens, and Mt Adams from the road before you get to the trailhead. I started with the fire road - it was a little steep and muddy. But the rest of the trails were well packed dirt or gravel. Lots of shade (and a little cool.) would definitely walk these trails again

Found blackberries along the way!

Really nice trail that was normally not overgrown but a couple spots go little tight maybe want to wear pants or something like that. Some sections didn’t have any traffic at all as was indicated by the spiderwebs it ran across the trail happy to have my water bottle to knock them down so I didn’t have to get all over me.

Great trail! There are some parts with overgrowth on the trail, but they are far and few between. Wear long pants and you'll be fine.

Lovely woodland trail practically in the city, best walked on weekdays to avoid crowds.

Maple is a beautiful trail, but NW Saltzman is just a small gravel road. Nothing pleasant about that. The fire lane for the last stretch of the loop is, honestly, miserable to hike down. Steep, very, very bumpy, dirt decline that one could easily twist an ankle on or worse. Nothing much to look at song this stretch which also features views power lines overhead. I'd strongly recommend plotting an alternative route back to the trailhead.

This really shouldn’t be labeled ‘Easy’. The last little part basically follows a power line and is strait down. It was pretty muddy as well, although we just had a huge rain storm. It was a great trail, though. A bit hard to know exactly which direction to turn sometimes because there can be up to 4 options and the signage isn’t that great. There were not many people, so it was nice and quiet. I would definitely recommend it, but maybe when it’s a bit drier and not for someone who is recovering from an ankle fracture =)

Loved this hike. The trail crosses over many streams of water. With dense moss covered tree views. Only took a star away because the trail sings were difficult to make sense of.

Great trail, didn't see a ton of people, nice and quiet. And not far from the city!

This was one of my first times hiking and I must say it was a great experience. It was a little muddy but crossing paths with an occasional hiker along the path was cool. Once you get to the top the view is cool but then you can easily double back down to do another path or just walk down. I did come across a few unleashed dogs, which were very alarming but it's not a high traffic trail but since I'm not a fan of hyper dogs it was a lot for me.
