Nature tripsBugsFeeGreat!Muddy

very piecefull, dog friendly. they recently added signs to help guide you back if you get lost (very hard, but possible). the only downfall people leave beer cans, clothes, and other personal items.

Nature tripsGreat!

First time being on the trail and I’ve read some reviews. Taking that into consideration I did the hike with my dog and well yes it’s a nice trail but there is quite a bit of trash I tried to do my part but felt overwhelmed with what I saw on top of the trash there was sketchy people and people camping out in the park

The trails are visible, there are clear markings and walking along the scenic creek was lovely. Did not encounter transient community nor litter. Completed this loop with my 4 year old niece, we had a great time!

This used to be a favorite walk for my Son and I. The homeless have taken over and made it feel a bit scary. Last time I went a homeless man exposed his privates to us. We will never go back!

Great paths. This navigator helped a ton. Otherwise could easily get lost as the trails seem to branch off in different directions and no signs.

Overall a very easy hike with clear paths. Has a couple spots that the trail runs right along the stream. I usually hit this trail at least once a week.

WalkingGreat!

Decent park, near my home so I walk here nearly every day. Sadly there is often a lot of litter/trash, and occasionally you will come across nefarious individuals hiding out in the forest, and it seems most people do not keep their dogs on leashes and many people smoke in the park. The park staff is unwilling to enforce these laws either. It is a wonderful forest though, and if you go at the less desirable times of the year it is a nice oasis where you can find rabbits eagles, osprey, coyote, owls, and even bobcat!

Not a bad little trail for being so close to town. Good little trails and some water to look at has a small Little Rock wall at the end you can mess around on.

One of my favorites. Trail is easy to walk and allows for me and the pups to escape the busy day. Well maintained, wide pathways that are never very populated. Nice little waterfall and stream. There is also a trail over to Lake Spanaway park or over to the ball fields at Sprinker. I have always found that sketchy things happen in the parking lot but have never had an issue, just be aware of your surroundings.

My wife and I love this trail. Pretty mild loop trail with different shortcuts throughout. However the parking lot seems to always be full of drug addicts and people smoking pot.

Park looks way too sketchy. Pulled into a parking spot, and too many homeless and just gave me a bad feeling. We won’t be back.

Good in town ride. very little incline or decline, but good beginners trail. ride faster if more difficulty is desired. on nice days there can be traffic, but the earlier you go the better. theres turtles sunbathing in the pond also! Jump across the street to spanaway park and there are some more trails, same level of difficulty.

Good trail, pretty clean and not too long. I walked it with my dog in about 30 minutes. The water does have a toxic algae warning sign around it so be careful if you're walking your dogs.

Easy trail - not too exciting. You’ll hear traffic on the south and see houses on the north.

good place to go inside the city. kids fishing with their parents, with many people using the trail. good 4 to 5 mile walk if you do this and then cross the street to spanaway park.
