LOVED IT! Definitely one of my all time favorite trails. Multiple stops to go veer off and spend some time at the river, as well as a variety of stunning scenery. I would say the level is in between easy and moderate. Only saw a few groups of people on a Saturday afternoon. Took 5 hours but we took lots of breaks and spent about an hour if not more eating lunch at the river.

So nice, tons of different views. Got in the water which was super fun. Not a ton of people and almost everyone was wearing masks.

Gorgeous hike! Bridges, waterfalls, great trail! A little buggy but nothing bug spray couldn’t counter. We hiked 1.5 miles to the big rock field with two kids under 7 and then came back. On the way back hopped in the river. Road to the trailhead is paved and well maintained. Almost no cell service.

HikingScramble

We wanted to do Middlefork but it was closed from a landslide. So after the suspension bridge we went right instead of left on this trail. There is a scramble part over rocks which was challenging with a toddler on my back, but over all not to bad. We didn’t make it all the way to the end but did about 5.5 miles round trip. Overall it was lovely!

Great hike, not very crowded arriving before 9:00am. The trail is very narrow for the last 1.5 miles. Lots of bugs. As mentioned by previous hikers, towards the half way point there is rocks and it’s hard to see which way to go. Continue straight towards the left, there is an orange marker hanging on a tree. The trail sign will actually say “middle falls”, but keep going and after the bridge you will see the sign for Pratt Lake.

Great easy Sunday hike. The road conditions on the way to the trailhead were excellent. There are facilities to use before starting the journey. The trail was super easy and had beautiful views of the river for most the of way. When you get roughly 1.4 miles there will be nothing but rocks and the trail can be hard to find. There is a white wood post to the left look for that and continue on the trail. The trail just sort of ends without a grand finale so that was a bummer but still enjoyed the hike. It does get a bit overgrown around mile 2.75, but not too crazy. There are a few points where it is hard to social distance so be sure to bring a mask. I think we saw about 6 or 7 groups total the whole time we were on the trail. Overall great easy hike.

HikingGreat!

Nice, easy, shady trail, perfect for our puppy's first hike. No fee at the trailhead right now, and restrooms and trash cans are unavailable. Arrived at 7:30 and ran into about 5 people on our way out, but dozens on our way back late morning. Most people were wearing masks and very polite about stepping off the trail for social distancing. Wasn't clear why this route map ends where it does as it starts to turn up the Pratt River valley, but when we tried to push past that point it got buggy and overgrown - wasn't worth it for us. Ran into WTA folks on the trail lower down doing repairs and clearing fallen logs - thanks!! Dogs enjoyed swimming in the clear water on a rocky beach just over the bridge from the parking lot. Ripe salmonberries, thimbleberries, and huckleberries abound right now. Not a challenging hike, but very rewarding.

Pretty awesome trail! Mostly flat! Gets to a rocky area but easy to get back on the trail! Not too packed with people unlike other trails on the same area

What a beautiful place! So many places to hike. Not overly crowded. Very clean. And bring a real camera. A phone camera does not do any justice to the amazing colors of this area.

Some muddy spots. Easy trail. You can tell it’s lightly traveled as some points were looking a little over grown. Today was super rainy and that made it feel longer. So beautiful in this area tho so who cares about the rain, dress accordingly.

Got to the trailhead at about 7:15am, had the parking lot to myself. Mailbox was already packed when I drove by at 7am, no parking spots available. Bathrooms at the Middle Fork trailhead were CLOSED, so plan accordingly. On the Pratt River Trail I only saw 2 trail runners that passed me, a group of 2 and one solo hiker with his fur baby as I was heading back. Felt nice to be away from the “busier” trails for sure. Very muddy in spots, and has quite a few blowdowns but nothing you can’t navigate over or under. The further you go, the more overgrown the trail becomes. A few creek crossings, no biggie with those. If you plan to do this hike in wet weather, I’d recommend gaiters once you reach the overgrowth. My feet were soaked from walking through all the wet salmonberry bushes! Returning to the trailhead, the parking lot had filled up with about 15-20 or so cars at about 11am. I’m slow, and like to meander, especially on a trail like Pratt River. There is a lot to see! This can easily be done much faster than my time.

Great experience. We got rained on but we are from Washington so no biggy. It was super muddy but we enjoyed the fun and only had two slips. Various logs to climb over or under streams to traverse. Fun all around.

Tried to do this hike yesterday but the road was closed due to a mudslide. Crews were fixing the road but don’t know how long it will take for it to reopen.

One of my favorite rainy day hikes. If you love to explore and find the “little things” along the way, this is the trail for you! So many ferns, mushrooms, ground cover and lichens to photograph. Easy enough trail for pets and kids. Right now, the road to the trailhead and clear and just a bit wet. But in the next few weeks, I am sure the windy road will be slick with ice. We did not need spikes or hiking poles. Just water and snacks. Trail is easy to follow and well marked. Past reports note that the first mile of the trail is the prettiest and then gets boring from there ~ but I thought the opposite. The third mile gets so thick with moss on every possible surface, I thought I was walking through a fairy garden.
