Trail was good once you get through the logging road mess.

They have been working hard to get the trail back after the logging. You can make the whole tin mine trail loop without too much of a struggle. The end right above the parking lot where they logged is rough but there is a trail cut through. Beautiful views of the Olympics. Awesome little water falls along the side of Gold Mountain.

Head out anti clockwise on Davis Trail. Relatively flat hike to Tin Mine. Mine has a good foot of water inside. Trail is closed for logging past the mine, so we turned back for a total of 6 miles.

If you want to attempt the loop and go through the logging area, start from Gold Creek trail to Davis Trail, then turn right on to Tin Mine trail (go across the bridge and turn right to stay on Davis trail, don’t follow the pink flagged “shortcut” or you’ll be wading through a river). After you get to the mine, there is a sign saying the trail is closed due to logging. If you keep going, follow the trail until you get to the logged area, then follow the pink “flag” trail markers that someone has kindly placed to help you through the devastated area. There are a few big trees down across the trail just before the logged area, but they’re not too hard to get over or under. At the logging road, turn right and keep following it until it ends, then pick up the pink flags again (to the left) to get down the mountain side. It wasn’t too tricky, just sad to see all the destruction of that beautiful trail. I hope someday it is restored.

This is a beautiful area and what is left of the forest on the tin mime trail makes for a great run. I went into the closed area and it is decimated with all the cutting that has been done. Not sure that part of the trail will ever recover.

The section of the loop from the tin mine to the parking lot is closed due to logging. Otherwise the hike is fantastic!

Went hiking this morning at Green Mountain. Gold creek and Tine Mine trail head are closed due to logging. You can take Plumber trail to Beaver pond to Gold Creek. The trails meet up where the bench is located at the clearing. We didnt have time to make it completely up since it does add more than 2 miles to the round trip. From the trailhead to clear and back is about 6.2 miles. Just a heads up.

Great hike but part of the trail is closed by the mine due to logging. So have to turn around. A few snakes we saw and a few bugs.

Took Davis to the Tin Mine. From that point the Tin Mine trail is STILL CLOSED. There is some serious logging work as well as trail maintenance going on. It is disappointing there is no signage warning of the closure at the point that Davis crosses Tin Mine. Signage and maps in general need a big update.

Beautiful hike, lot’s of salamanders! Warning don’t try to go the full loop. There is logging that is blocking most of the last segment of the trail. You will likely need to turn around and go back if you try.

No snow. Muddy with puddles in places. Mostly flat. Not many people on the trail. Some people who had dogs did not have them on leash. A few mountain bikers. The trail out to tin Mine is pretty neat (single track). We saw a couple of beaver dams.

This is my favorite trail in WA; how are, right now, as of 4/5/19, the trail is not accessible due to logging. They have trampled over the break in the trail near the lumber yard and logged the trees to where you cannot access the trail to continue onto the Davis trail. if you take the Gold Creek trail to the Davis trail, the trail is closed right at the Tin Mine. That's 2.5 miles in so you need to turn around and go back.

About halfway in there is a new sign up that says the trail is closed any further due to logging.

This was a fun little hike with minor blow down. Very easy to get around. I enjoyed the tin mine. I did the path to the right to get hard part out of the way. There is still packed snow on the trail but no real need for crampons.

Trail was a wet as expected. Went counter clockwise and got the hard part out of the way and then enjoyed a slow downhill hike.

It was a beautiful stroll! Some muddy areas but nothing you cannot get past. I would definetly not wear tennis shoes on this hike, your feet will get wet. There are so many trails to explore here.

A very pleasant hike on a moderately trafficked trail. The trail was a bit muddy but it was late December- so who cares! If you go in a counter-clockwise direction on the loop you will get all the elevation in the first mile and then can have a fast downhill coming back. We went clock-wise so it was a gradual grade upwards and then a steeper decent on the way out. The tin mine was pretty dope, but very wet so we couldn't go too far in. This would be a good spot to take out of towners cuz of the small elevation gain, the interesting mine, and the proximity to Seattle. Also, dogs are allowed, but don't be the asshole who doesn't use a leash...

Great trail, beautiful scenery and lots of mini waterfalls and even a mine!

Beautiful hike! We went in early December. It was chilly and a little muddy, but still very enjoyable. The sound of running water was all along the trail. I went with my 11 and 7 year old daughters who handled it very well. We took the short, steep uphill at the beginning of the hike and enjoyed a long, leisurely downhill as our reward. Definitely plan to do this again!

The trail was a little muddy in spots but otherwise in good shape. We went right and took the challenge of going up hill for the first mile and coasting down. We started around 8:15am and only ran into other people at the end of our walk. There is bathrooms at the trailhead. A discovery pass is required for parking. Enjoyable hike!

Great day hike, there was quite a few horses on the trail though. Also if you get to the tin mine it's pretty cool but watch where you put your hands in the tunnel... there are spiders on the walls just saying.
