A moderate climb to great views of the Olympics, Seattle, Bremerton, and even Mount Rainier. Trail will be shared with other hikers, as well as mountain bikes and horses.

Great hike for 2 hours! Great views!

We got to the parking area by 9 and it was full! Just one spot left for us. The trail starts out as hikers only but merges with a trail for motorcycles. When the trail splits you can choose this one and share with the motorcycles or go right on the Davis trail. Since it was a heavy day of motorcycles we chose Davis trail. It was wide open but beautiful.

We had a great time. most dogs were off leash, and that's ok with us, ours was too unless we spotted people ahead. my wife and I went with our newborn and our 2.5 year old, who made it most of the way before I had to carry her. Well marked and maintained trail with a great view at the top

My tracker indicated about 3.5 miles to the top. Heavily trafficked - likely due to holiday weekend - but no bikers or horses to work around. Unfortunate that a good portion has been clear cut by loggers, but definitely worth the view at the top. Great to also see the change in flora and fauna as you ascend.

We hike this trail about once a week, very peaceful. Not too much elevation change and the trails are well maintained except for horse and dog poop about every 5 feet.

Great hiking/running trail! Not much traffic, only ran into 3 people, so nice to be able to run. It was an hour roundtrip. A little rocky!

Nice trail. Saw one post that it was not well marked, but only found that to be true near the top where trail changed names. Rated a 4 b/c we ran into dirt bikers on trial, not real the reason I hike.

Beautiful hike! Like others have said, it could be better marked in some places, but otherwise offers beautiful views.

First 3/4 of the hike is under forest cover - nothing much to see. If you have a clear day, the view payoff at the end is worth it! There is a steady incline, but nothing too steep. Lots of rocks and roots. We passed horses, motor bikes, mountain bikes and other hikers - all were polite and courteous.

Beautiful trail and views. Bottom half is flat and wooded and upper half is more steep and does not have tree coverage. Could be better marked.
Fun to see horses on the trails.

Discovery pass needed before getting there. No phone signal at parking lot so take directions!
Well maintained trail with great views of the Olympics. Hiked with a four year old.
Make sure to stop at the water on the way back and soak those feet!

Hiked 7/5/18. Perfect day, beautiful views. The logged area allows for sweeping views of the Olympics. I thought the view there was even better than the view at the top! It was a little hazy at the top, though, so couldn’t see Mt. Rainier this time.

Fun little trail with some nice lookouts. Seattle off in the distance was cool.

Super fun and great view from the top. Not difficult, but you can feel it in your legs the next day!

Great local place to hike. It’s plenty shady and the views at the top are nice.

Great little place to hike if you want to hike without traveling very far. Not too strenuous. The view of the sound is nice once on top.

Close to home, easy parking, nice trails and views. I wasn’t sure how much we’d enjoy it, getting a late start on an 80+ day but there was plenty of shade on most of the trail and some breezes. We stopped at the creek on the way down. Kids and dogs really enjoyed playing in the falls. Definitely will be back.
