Hiked this trail last night 04/18/2018. Ran into a black bear about a half mile from the intersection of 148th and 216th. Stopped walking and let him figure out where he wanted to go. He jumped into the woods and we continued by where he had been making sure to be loud. One restroom only at the main trailhead.

Have never done the full loop but it’s within walking distance of my parents house so I try to walk parts often. Never crowded, wide, well maintained path. Surrounded by woods.

The trail is great for exercising. It is clean and well maintained. However, due to fencing it is difficult to see all the beauty of nature. 04/20/2017

Great loop for running on! Most of the trail is wide, but one section is a single file trail that can get muddy. I love the elevation changes here- one really good hill, but other than that gentle rolling hills.

Visiting from Colorado and wanted something close to Kent. Great trail with quick access, some rolling hills. It is a single lane gravel road for the most of the loop and some mild single track. This is not back woods running and 50% run along a road way.

Not much to see and there are several times you walk along streets.

Good for running and biking, or a really long walk. Pretty in some spots, chain link fence all the way around and no views of the lake. Great for training runs though! 9.5 mile loop, maybe a little under that, but not by much.

Hilly, gravel road for most of the way, narrow gravel trail for a little bit. Don't let the name fool you, you can't get anywhere near the lake, it's a watershed reservoir that provides drinking water for the area, so you won't even see the lake during this trip. Lots of elevation change, great for a run or bike ride. A go-to spot if you're looking for a sure thing 9-miler, but don't expect anything special in the scenery department.
