Very easy walk in the woods on dirt trails...some trails next to creek. The Whatcom Falls is a bonus. You can expect walkers, hikers, runners, bikes and dogs. Family friendly.

One of my favorite trails - my only complaint is that it's so darned popular! Lots of people everywhere. There's lots of places to explore and no two hikes are the same.

Not one thing bad to say! HUGE place, LOTS of secret trails and swim spots! The cliff jumping was amazing and my dogs loved that they could pretty much just dip in anywhere we went! Waterfalls, lakes, swimming, hiking, what else do ya need? We will be returning again that is for sure! :)

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.

I love it there especially by the pond. It feels magical there.

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.

Very public and flat but very beautiful. Good for a jog or hike with the family. Great opportunities for waterfall photography!
