HikingGreat!

***IF YOU TAKE YOUR DOG - PICK UP THE POOP!!!*** There was so much poop on the trail. I have 2 dogs. I know having to pack their poop out is not an ideal pass time but you chose to take the animal. Clean up after it please. This was a perfect trail for a nice walk through the woods. I was just breaking in a new pair of hiking boots and it was great for that. Not too long, full of hills, uneven ground, some mud and rocks. If you’re not sure about your boots, test them out here and also get a wonderful forest view. A lot of trails cross over each other though so make sure you have a map or GPS.

well we only made it about a mile in and had to turn back as i stupidly wore converse chucks and kept slipping...about a 1/3 of the way in the trail gets pretty uneven with lots of roots to trip you up if not careful...the trail has some nice inclines, got my heart rate up even had to stop twice (bad physical shape not cause it was horrible) we went at sunrise hoping to be alone on the trail so my trail buddy could go sans leash, but actually ran into a couple other hikers...hard trail to keep 6 ft away, but we happily stepped off and let the others pass us. I have been spoiled all summer hiking all over national forrests, so the road/train noise even back in the trail was a bummer...if your looking for peaceful isolation this is NOT your ideal trail.

I use to love this trail but then they connected it to the Puyallup loop and put up arrow signs that are hard to follow, with no maps. What use to be a 2 mile hike is now 5 or more. I ask a couple behind me directions... but they were lost too . I ended up with my baby and toddler in a neighbor still 45mins away from my car. I had to knock on something’s door for help. I didn’t bring enough water and I was dehydrated because I gave all my water to my toddler and Breastfeed my baby. I ended up carrying both my toddler and baby. This coming from someone who’s hiked all her life and still somehow got lost in a suburban park .

Very confusing signage throughout the trail that ultimately ended up with me and the pup wondering aimlessly down an embankment trying to find our way out?! Thank god it was still daytime! A few parts are pretty muddy but overall the path/trail is well maintained. A few mediocre inclines. There is a pretty nice little (somewhat hidden) spot for dogs to jump in the water too! There’s also a very basic off leash dog park as well. I’m sure I’ll be back but next time I’ll have a freaking map & compass!

The trail is not well marked and not every path is a part of the loop

In and out of woods. Interesting. More like a Puyallup day tour.

It appeared that someone had turned all the signs so the actual trail is poorly marked

Kind of fun to just wander around the woods. Not very much to offer other than that.

I liked the trail but the signs are confusing and I ended up going around an entire neighborhood just to end up back at the entrance/ parking lot (the way you come through). There are a ton of shortcuts and separate trails but just following the signs, its not the best. Beautiful trail though!

A little incline here and there , a good amount of shade and sun . A little muddy but overall a cute place to hike . If you go off the trail a bit at the start theres a small bridge cute for taking pictures on !!

You will get confused if you do the whole trail the first time, ask for help and you’ll be good. The trail goes into housing and streets. It’s all labeled, just don’t go on any unlabeled paths. Great for running, not a ton of people

Great little hike, really beautiful views. So many ferns and trees. The trail is really well-marked and going off onto the smaller trails really can't get you lost. I've already gone here twice this week!
