Loved this Trail. We did not run into another person, my husband and I had it all to ourselves. Beautiful path, easy to navigate.

It was a beautiful trail. Would love to go back in a few months to see all the wild rhododendrons in bloom.

Beautiful hike would recommend bringing a map some of the trails are not naked very well did the maple valley loop too. The waterfalls were wonderful to see and the trail was well maintained even for winter.

A nice walk through the forest with a number of small water falls and creeks along the trail. There are some elevation gains at the beginning but it smooths out afterward. A quick a and a half hike.

Ran on this trail and it was pretty well maintained and through beautiful forest. Did both donkey trail and maple valley. Streams all dried up early September but I bet it's gorgeous in early winter!

Nice hike. We went through the Maplevalley, which has very nice views, steep grades. End of July and all streams/waterfalls are dried up.

So green and beautiful! A challenge, but not too strenuous of a hike. Several bridges and board walks along the way. Some of the water had stopped flowing because of the time of year we went, but most of the big water flows were still going strong.

Pleasantly surprised by the beautiful scenery, waterfall and streams. Pretty easy walk. While a lot of people camping, the loop was not to busy. Will definitely visit again.

Great trail, but all the falls were dry. Still worth the effort.

Nice, short little hike that has great views of the Dosewallips River and several small waterfalls. Saw plenty of wildlife, great stop a day trip to the Olympics.

This was a nice, easy hike. It's rated as moderate and estimated to be a 3-hour hike. However, we found it to be fairly easy--not a lot of treacherous terrain or terribly steep grades considering the location. Also, we made the hike in about 90 minutes. Really pretty views of the waterfall, Dosewallips River, and forest. Our dogs enjoyed the hike as well. We went on a Saturday in late January. The weather was nice and we only saw a couple of other hikers the whole day.

Easy trail for the whole family to enjoy, a couple steep downgrades to maneuver past that may cause some to back crawl on all four, but overall an easy hike and awesome view of the river and campsites below. If you bring your child, keep them close and hold their hands when needed. It was a pretty fun hike for my 3yr old girl who was cracking up the entire time, hopping and skipping when we had the chance & piggy back rides when needed.
