Great trail with easy and hard paths. Beautiful greenery and water views to cool off and have a snack. Great for the family. Would do again.

I loved the trails at this location. Good mixture between flat and hills. Little stops by the water you could check out. Quite a few people. People on trails took turns stopping for each other to pass to keep social distancing. Beautiful water views. I would not consider mr these trails “Hard”. I will come again.

Wonderful trail! We went on a weekday evening and it wasn’t crowded at all. Perfect for a hot day with the combination of water, shade and lots of little resting/picnic nooks by the water. Great PNW vibes - would definitely take someone from out of town here. This will be a summer staple!

Busy, lots of kids and dogs, few people wearing masks. A great trail though

Nice trail leading down to the water, with a pretty decent incline on the way up. Not too heavily trafficked on a Saturday around noon.

Hiked with two kids, ages 6 and 3. It was beautiful and we loved the lake and ravines. We had to hop over many gooey spots, and we even discovered a geocache!
