ok woodsy trail, constant incline on way up but not strenuous. No great views but lovely woods. Light traffic, plenty of parking, well marked.

Well kept trail, easy hike. No view but the fireplace is a milestone anyhow.

It was a wonderful forest-nature walk with little traffic over a sunny Saturday morning. Pathways are wide and easy. I hiked past many joggers and including a runner. The trail is inclined throughout the way up but be careful of the slippery slopes from the moisture because of the vegetation/forest. Also to note, there was no restrooms or trash bins.

9/23/2017 (Saturday) - Sunny morning, cool around 60F. At Debbie's View, we can't see Mt. Rainier because it is wrapped by clouds and the haze. We met a group of Korean hikers from Marysville, and many mountain runners in an event at the Fireplace.

It was a nice walking trail. Super empty and peaceful. The fireplace was neat. Highly recommend if you wake up on a Saturday at 12 and need a quick hike that's close to Seattle.

Decent hike and the fireplace is kind of cool... the viewpoint is disappointing though.

This is a nice morning hike if you have a few hours to explore and enjoy nature. As a hike it can be as easy or difficult as you want it to be. Large portions of it used to be an old road used for jeeping so it isn't the most diverse trail however the nature around can be very interesting and the layout of the mountain itself makes for a very interesting hike. It is a easy to moderate trail but you can adjust that as you set your own pace. These trails and really the whole area in general would be dog friendly and great for trail running.
