A nice and easy afternoon hike just off the Manley Rd./ Old Samish Rd. The Falls are Un-named but worth the hike, the views are breathtaking. #LIVELAUGHLOVE #WATERFALLS #HEALTHY

Really muddy for the first part of the switchback up to the trail. One fallen tree over the path but easily stepped over. Did full route plus the ridge line path. Not difficult but you’ll need to look where to put your feet. Lots of exposed roots.

Mundane, but so much better than no time in the woods after work at all!

This is always such a nice, easy and quick hike for when you don’t have a ton of time. There is always beautiful scenery too. I love this hike. I like going any time of year. Rain or shine.

Parking available (small area). Porta Potty available at trailhead. Incline for the first .5 miles. Nice trail loop around the lake. Beautiful views of the lake. Lots of benches along the trail to relax and take in the beauty.

Nice easy trail. Moderate uphill out of parking lot until you reach the lake at .3 miles. Then several options on routes. We went left and around the lake clockwise, but taking the side-loop out to the beaver pond, and the side loops out to the South Ridge and North Ridge trails. Mostly gentle ups and downs, with the Ridge loop a little stiffer climb. Stay on the main lake loop and it’s fairly flat. Beautiful greenery, mossy rocks, mostly shady.

Super chill hike. As an avid hiker, took me about 7 min to get up to the top of the Loop. Especially beautiful in the Summer & Fall time. Great for all skills, kids & dogs! :)

This trail is a nice easy walk. Gain in elevation is right off the bat out of the parking lot, but flattens out shortly for a nice stroll around the lake.Theres several places to enter the lake if you wish, and a bench or two to rest. Has a couple additional loops if you wish to extend your hike. Great for starting hikers.

Nice hike. A good short workout if you hit the hills. Only downside is the road noise from the interstate.

Parking lot was empty at 10:30 am when we started but full with overflow on the road at 2 pm when we got back. Packed, crunchy snow in all shaded areas up to about 8” at the top. We wore micro spikes and they were useful. View from the top worth the hike. It was our second time here; the first time we started from Alger down south.

Beautiful hike. Great for kids. Went with my sister & 21 month old nephew. He made it almost all the way himself. Little bit of mud but to be expected this time of year.

A beautiful spot to sit down and take a break from running around. Easy to get to.

Quick and easy hike. I think it took me about half an hour to do the loop and that was with stopping to take pictures. Most of the elevation is at the very beginning of the hike. Nice and quiet during the morning.
