The trailhead and parking area are located on the right behind the Komo Kulshan Guard Station. An accessible toilet is available at the trailhead.
I love this walking trail. Perfect location for a quick drive and change of scenery for my boys. I love seeing how in awe they are of how big the trees are. Perfect for little kids and/or people with disabilities or physical limitations. The path is of good width, and boarded for wheelchair access .
So pleasant, perfect if you have little kids along. Didn't get any complaining about the length and the old growth forest is truly awesome. Boardwalks perfectly maintained, amazing variety of native plants. Directions are a little off though on All Trails...it's off of Baker Lake Hwy as a pulloff, not down the National Forest Road, if you get to Kulshan Campground, turn back around, go back to Baker Lake Hwy and it's just a little down the highway on the right.
