Says moderate, but I would say its easy. you really only gain a few hundred feet in elevation, for the most part it's a nice easy climb and decent through some really beautiful, nature filled landscape.

Great hike. The beginning of the hike is mostly up hill. But then you get to the top and it’s very pleasant with bridges and waterfalls. Would do again

Great hike. The initial walk up to the top of the trail is a little difficult, but not too bad. Overall would do it again

Great trail for kids. Would rate it easy. We hiked the whole loop with a group with varying hiking experience and kids with ease.

The Dosewallips Steam Donkey Trail is a nice family friendly hike near Brinnon. The trail is in good shape and the slide was on Maple Ridge trail is now clear.

Definitely on the easier side of moderate. Good for dogs and kids I would think. We didn’t see anyone else on the trail. Lots of rainforest scenery, water and bridges! Easy and pretty hike!

Great trail with some cool spots for photos/ resting, although not a long trail. Not many people out today which was nice.

5/5/20-Trail is well maintained, considering state parks were closed for nearly 2 months. Not busy at all but it was a spectacular afternoon. Creeks and falls were flowing! There were some gnats here and there but not bad.

Parking for the trailhead wasn't immediately obvious, so I started at the Maple Valley Trailhead, but did basically the same loop. Slightly muddy in spots, but the trail was pretty well maintained, only had to hop one fallen tree. Parts of the trail were absolutely gorgeous.

We hiked this trail last week on a rainy day. The fall colors were still spectacular and the streams were full and beautiful. I hiked it with my daughter, son-in law and little grand daughter. I thought the trail was fairly easy though a little slippery due to the rain. I would love to come back and walk the trail again. The elk and harbor seals at the parking area were also a plus

Went on a cool day in mid October. Fall colors were great. Nobody else on the trail. We parked at ranger station. About 1 mile in, my kids got attacked by hornets. 3 kids got stung. Nobody allergic. I went up to where they got stung and heard more buzzing. Had to turn around. Definitely recommend rocky brooks falls if you are in this area. Very short walk with amazing falls.

The trail was well maintained with the exception of a tree that had fallen on the trail perfectly covering the trail. Took a couple minutes to figure out where the trail was supposed to go but were able to get over it and move along. At the trail head there were a herd of elk in the camp ground that were neat to see. Also parking at the ranger station requires a discovery pass.

Beautiful trail system close to the campground. Mossy trees, old railroad grade, small bridges over dry creeks in August made for a nice short hike.

There are few different trails at this park. We started on the Maple Valley trail and at the service road we switched over to the Steam Donkey Trail. Both these trails are very beautiful. Under a canopy of evergreen cedar, fir and spruce tree the trail rises and falls. Very few hikers travel these trails. We didn’t see a single person the entire hike.
