I went there one day in March this year when it was drizzling; thus, the trails were dangerously slippery at places, so I decided not to do the whole loop. But this park with its tall trees, powerful waterfalls, and rushing streams was magnificent. I had a nice talk with the ranger helpers (university students) who were feeding the salmons raised in large outdoor round tanks to be released later to the ocean via the park system of streams, sleuces, and waterfalls. Like the state of Washington, this park is magical! I shall return.

A nice and easy trail for walking or bike riding. Waterfalls have nice strong current during the colder months, trail is clean and mostly flat. There is also a pond with benches to sit and enjoy the view of ducks swimming.
