This hIke is pretty good. It’s a little hard at the top but overall it’s just a pretty good workout. I only saw two people on the trail which is great. Can’t stand being around people. Make sure you have a Discover pass to park here

Love the trail up to Central Peak. Phil's Creek trail is overgrown and the trail is a little slick for downhill hiking and I recommend long pants. No views at the top but a great trail for a workout. I recommend maps,compass and GPS. There are plenty of connecting trails and one can easily get lost. Lots of horse poop along Bullitt Gorge trail. Don't forget to visit the Bullitt Fireplace!

Nice and easy trail close to Bellevue. The bottom part shares with Horses and the coming down trail is small. Make sure you have discover pass for parking

Disregard all of the negative reviews about this hike, I loved it! Trail was very easy to follow, beautiful scenery, and best of all......very light foot traffic!! I would like to come back on a day that follows a few days of rainfall. There were a few dry creek beds along the way, I'd like to see them flowing.

Nice shaded trail that is well signposted. Beautiful forest with a glimpse of Mt Rainier, but no other outstanding views.
