Some interesting signboards and was a pretty walk through the forest. The connector trail to the campsite is unnecessary unless you’re staying there so if you’re not, don’t go beyond the pump house. I’d also start this at the bridge if I were going to go again.

It is only necessary to do the loop portion of this trail about 2/3 of a mile. We did this to burn some time before a rafting adventure down the Skagit. The Skagit river looks awesome from the bridge and the the giant trees with lots of info about them along the short walk was worth the time and the information. If you love big trees and knowing about big trees as I do, you can learn a lot on this trail.

Perfect pit stop to let the toddler out to walk for a little more than a mile. Nice views of the river and a cool, bouncy suspension bridge.

Quiet and beautiful trail. Met only a few others at around 10am. Should have just stuck to the main loop. There is nothing much to see beyond it (it just leads to the campgrounds) except for a bridge over a small but really pretty creek which is worth a look.

About a mile round trip for the loop, lots of shade. We saw a deer. I loved all the informative plaques along the trail! I learned not only about the foliage, but about wildlife like deer and salmon. The Skagit River is swift and pretty, and the bridge is interesting. It’s a nice stop if you have 40 minutes to kill, and it’s almost flat. No need to go past the loop, just stick to loop. You can also learn about water turbines and there is an old steam engine parked near the road. Parking across the street and port-a-potties available there.

Very easy hike to do. Great for little kids and dogs on leash. Most of the hike is a gravel road but still very peaceful. The bridge that starts out the trail is really beautiful over the river. We easily did this trail in sandals.

Cute little trail, nice for a cool down after a more strenuous hike. Best part is the bridge!

HikingMuddy

Took the kids. Lots of mud. Felt shorter overall than the 7.5 miles and 3.5 hours r/t that it was. Did the loop and and also hiked down to the old railroad bridge foundations. You start in the forest and then come upon the ravine about 1.7 miles in. The hike had views down to the river below (1000 ft?) and lots of old growth forest with log overhangs you can crawl through or around. Climb ascends about 200 ft in the first mile then down 600 ft over the next mile to the ravine entrance. From there it’s pretty much flat until the loop. Would love to go in the summer and spend an hour or more by the water at the loop. Currents are strong though so watching the kids by the water’s edge is paramount.

Loved the gigantic cedars and the few vegetation signs, teaching about the local fauna. Just wish it was longer.
