Beautiful trail...ITS LOOOONNNG. make sure you have water shoes and constantly note the way you are hiking. It’s TOUGH but definitely worth the it. Make sure you apply tic/bug spray and have plenty of sunscreen and water handy.. lots of lizards and snakes

The first four miles were great! I loved making it to the windy top and seeing the view. The creeks were very easy to get across. Now why a two? The trail was poorly marked and poorly maintained. There were snags that had to have been around since the last forest fire and are a death trap for those who don’t know about them. Lots of dead trees and growth that covered the trail at multiple points. At mile 4, I ended up off-trail and it was not fun trying to get back on. I didn’t make it to the end and ended up having to make my way back.

I love the west side of busiek, a lot less people use this side.. I try to get there at least once a week.

Completed the entire trail in one day with a recording of 37.4 miles. Should be 36 total but the trail is flooded at least knee deep just west of Baldwin Rd. The southern bypass adds about a mile. This trail is a Michigan gem. It is incredible that this many miles of trail are connected. The variety of trail, the wildlife, the lakes, the marsh and the woods are just spectacular! The miles shared with equestrians are especially hard because they are sandy and soft which makes them exhausting. This is one of the best trails in Michigan. I plan to go back and explore sections more fully!

Beautiful trail. Easy for children. The only complaint would be the horse manure left. If your “lucky” you walk past fresh droppings which completely infiltrate your nasal cavities and the weak may gag, dry heave or even worse fully commit to letting it all go Overall though, if horses didn’t pop, this would be in my top favorite trails list with children.

Staying on fire road is not as nice as going on narrow path with shade and wildflowers. Nice view at top.

Great trail and absolutely stunning views. There were there people on Motorbikes but they were really respectful and turned off the motor when they saw us. Not rocky at all but not a trail I would do with inexperience horses.

Good hike in the city and parking was easy. Not to busy in middle of the day and a little muddy in places and look out for horse poop on the trail

Nice trail, dogs are allowed on leash. Came on a Friday morning a little after 9 and it was pretty crowded by then. Sadly, about 2 miles in. the trail was closed off, so we were forced to turn around. Also, no shade, wear sunscreen & a hat!

Falls are massive and flowing right now with all the rain. Super muddy and parking was a pain, but worth it to see the falls. Can wade out and enjoy if a hot day

Alright this is my first review ever. First of all, a very beautiful drive to the part. The lower falls parking is closed, so simply drive to the middle falls and park. If full, well, park somewhere on the road where allowed. If possible park on the middle, as I found that to be a perfect starting point for most regular folk who hike every now and then. I went to the lower falls, a small area of rocky path, but if you go carefully, really not a problem. The lower falls were very beautiful and so majestic. Then walk back up to the middle falls and do some more of the whole “I need a selfie, oh my god” scene. Then proceed to the upper falls that has a beautiful view, a huge log to sit on and enjoy the scene. Before going down to the water, there is a path that continue and you will end up pretty much on top of the upper falls. The hike to that is a bit steep, but it’s not to long of a path, but totally worth it. I felt that going to lower, taking a break, then middle, taking a break, and then upper, and taking a break was the best way to balance the hike. It was not a hard hike, but it’s all personal fitness level. I feel everyone can do this hike and truly will not deter people from hiking if this one was their first. Did I mention I really loved the falls? Honestly, totally worth going. For those campers or glampers, there is spots for camping and what not throughout the park, but please inquire with the parks and recreation or whatever Washington has. Anyways, I hope you will truly embrace the beauty the PNW brings, and this is one of those spots.

Beautiful lakes! Great fishing. So many blow downs for hiking in with packs. Posted a pic of some downed trees for perspective. It’s kind of ridiculous how many.

Bottomland Trail was a nice little 5 mile adventure. The ammunition shelters were an interesting bonus! Most of the loop was well maintained. The portion nearest to the levee was a bit less traveled, but still easy to navigate. We ran into several rabbits, (possibly poisonous?) snakes, and armadillos which definitely added some excitement. The bugs were annoying at times, and there were some bees that hung around longer than I’d like. Overall, it was an enjoyable afternoon, and it was a convenient escape from the city.

Easy trail to do with kids. We found several trails that went up to the water. only downfall was we saw lots of mosquitos.

Great trail. We went after a few days of heavy rainfall, so it was a bit muddy. Some part of the trail can be a bit of a challenge for those who haven’t hiked before. Worth it though. We started the trail from Golden Cicrle Trail and merged. Ticks are in abundance this season, so be careful.

Awesome hike. Combine with rocky peak or Las llajas for a nice 10-12 mile loop. Great views of the valleys. Well maintained. Great flowers. If you are feeling particularly frisky there is a cool albeit tight trail that is in between Los llajas and Chumash on the all trails map. It has no name. It is very steep but goes ridge line from peak to peak. Quite an experience and amazing flora and fauna. Kind of shocked we didn’t see a rattlesnake but don’t be surprised if you do.

The first 4 miles up is awesome. Skip the road part...and beware if you follow the all trails map to a t you will end up in a ski resort and the trail is not accurate. Go up 4 miles. Then do the children’s garden then come back down. No need to walk the road. When you’re done drive to the top to get the views. Walking on roads suck.

Hiked up 5/28/20 and encountered snow pack about 4.5 miles in. Trail was doable without gear, but would recommend if you’re going up anytime soon. Aneroid lake was iced over, but made for a beautiful sunny and snowy day hike around the lake. Trail was hard to follow at times and trail blazes were very helpful as we got turned around a couple of times. Stayed one night at Rogers lake. Absolutely worth the snowy trek!
