Great hike in the woods. Went with our dog. A little overgrown, with a few side trails. No parking on North side, parked here, at the end of the road: (20351 170th Ave NE, Woodinville, WA 98072)

The trail is fine for a walk in the woods. However the area down by the lake is private and there is a sign stating no trespassing. It was quite buggy on an August afternoon. No real signage and not well maintained. Used the All trails map numerous time to stay on course, with several side trails that aren't on the map.

The trail is poorly labeled. There are many side trails that lead all over the place. We never made it to the lake. The trail is very narrow and overgrown in places. The mosquitos are beginning to come out, so I would recommend insect repellent. The salmon berries were beginning to ripen.

The trail begins at the end of 228th St SE. Start hiking through an opening in the fence. The trail is in good condition though the bushes cause the trail to narrow in many spots, mostly huckleberries and salmon berries. I expect nettles as the season progresses so I recommend wearing long pants. There's standing water in several places so I expect mosquitos soon and also recommend insect repellent. The trail makes lots of interesting turns and there are a few side trails. I appreciated having AllTrails on my phone so I could verify my location. The terrain is varied with hills and a few small ravines. Somebody has added small bridges to pass over a few streams/bogs. My only disappointment was to find that the property around the lake is privately owned and there is no public access. The end of the trail has "No Trespassing" and "Private Property" signs. You can also hike the trail from the South end starting at the end of 170th Ave NE. There's a sign next to the trail that says "State Land".
