Great hike for beginners. Dirt terrain trail to follow which made for a nice jogging train. Right about 2 miles.

Parking is open, Trails are open. Map is deceiving, there are numerous trail intersections that are not marked and it can become very easy to get disoriented and find the correct path out.

It’s parking lot is closed but it’s close enough to my house to walk. It was a gorgeous trail with lots of offshoot trails to make it however long or short you want. Beautiful trees and vegetation. Only downside is the beginnings of bugs - so bring spray!

The parking lot is closed right now due to the Covid-19 response, but that made for a peaceful and quiet run since very few people were on the trail today. There are lots of great offshoots to try if you’re up for a bit of exploring, but you should certainly use the map if you want to stick to the main trail. It’s easy to find yourself off of the route.

I would recommend this trail! However, don’t use my record because we got lost and had to turn around. It’s fun though!

Great, well maintained trail! Definitely follow the map, otherwise the offshoots will take you out to the main roads.

Very nice walking trail. Key word is "walking". Yes there are a couple of very short inclines, but I wouldn't categorize this as a hike. Depending on what route you take, or actually create, some of the city/industrial noise fades away. However, you are in the middle of town, so you can't expect the serenity of the Olympics. That said, these trails snuggled in the middle of town are a nice escape. The paths are well maintained, though not very well marked. It was nice to see the beauty of the moss covered trees without going all the way out to the Hoh Rain Forest. I ventured all the way towards the edge of the golf course, and tried not to cover ground I had already traveled; making my little trek 3 miles. My only compliant being the idiots smoking pot towards the beginning of the trail on my way out. Will do this one again; most likely several times again.

One of the easier trails I've done. Not a fan of the suburban sounds and sights so close. Navigation is a little tricky due to worn signage.

took the six year old and 1 year old in jogging stroller and it worked out perfectly. quite hilly and a little bit of a challenge but still doable.

Really well maintained trails with soft gradients. Great for a run. Can be a little tricky navigating the trails but not a big enough area to worry about getting lost.

Slightly tricky to navigate, but a lovely and quick hike through. I wish people were better at picking up dog poop though.

Great trail for a quick hike that isn’t too challenging. Nice wide trails with lots of mulch for even stepping. The only downside is it is very confusing with all the turns and it’s easy to get disoriented. I highly recommend taking a picture of the map at the trail entrance.

Beautiful trail, but very easy to get lost in. Definitely recommend bringing a buddy and/or a map. Once you get deep inside, it is very difficult to find your way out. On the plus side of getting lost, you see more of this beautiful park!
