Great hike. Fairly flat once you get down to the loop. Multiple bridges to cross. Will be back.

This trail would be a beginner trail if you take go left on the loop entrance from the park spot referenced on the map above. The most rapid decline is there. Alternatively, if you go to the right, you'll hit this as a great incline on the way out.

Additionally, if you choose to take all the legs of the trail, you'll add 2+ miles (someone below said it can total 4.1 miles), and a lot of great inclines too! This is an awesome MODERATE trail that you can choose to make easier/ harder and longer/ shorter. The choice and variables are why I give this 5 stars. Its crazy beautiful too!

Beautiful, easy, short trail. Good for a quick nature walk. Lots of magnificent trees to look at.

easy short trail right near downtown Olympia. like to hike this one early in the morning. if you wait too long it will be too busy and crowded. Lots of little children as well so be aware if you are a dog walker. no bikers on this one since it is too short.
