I rated this trail as one star, not because of the trail itself but because the entrance to the trailhead (off of Garryanna) was covered with poison oak. Since I have had very severe reactions to poison ivy, we decided to hike a different trail.

My new favorite trail! Relatively easy hike — first quarter flat, second quarter up hill, third quarter flat and last quarter downhill. Lots of grassy space on top with 180 degree views from the Cascades to Mary’s Peak. Heard an owl hooting on the lower wooded section.

Beautiful views in several directions from the top. First 1/3 of the trail is uphill. Wild iris is blooming. Saw a number of woodpeckers and nuthatches.

I took this loop to learn about 100 different native weeds, flowers, plants and trees. The trail has quite a bit of poison oak, best to stick well to the trail. A stream and 2 ponds (1 with a bench) are along this trail so good chance to spot frogs. Of coarse, this is a goodly place for birding.

decent trail. I usually end up way off coarse due to the trail being short. I combine other trails/ roads to try and get my goal of 20 miles a day.

Nice open flat paved path between the end of Circle Blvd to Harrison. Saw a number of brush rabbits along the route. Unfortunately, ground clearing has begun on a large development near the path and orange plastic fencing has been installed along the route.

Fairly easy hike close to home and fairly short. Trail not well marked so we got lost and found ourselves paralleling Walnut Blvd before backtracking and finding the right path. A bit noisy with road noise and power equipment in use by the apartment buildings adjacent to the trail.

Long gradual descent on gravel road before trail takes off into trees. It’s worth the trek, however, to see the biggest living trees I have ever seen! Wildflowers such as trillium, bleeding heart and yellow violets are in bloom now. Pretty much had the trail to ourselves at 5:30 pm Tuesday. Uphill on the way back.

Easy mostly flat well maintained and marked trail. Five or six types of wildflowers in bloom. Trail is shared with bicyclists, some of whom do not announce their arrival so be alert.

Beautiful trail. Not to difficult even if you’re out of shape. A few good hill climbs, but overall gorgeous and very fun

Tougher than I thought it would be! Steep hills but great view

nice easy hike with beautiful forest views. dog friendly too!

Good for kids and listening to the birds.

Great fire road hike. Did one off shoot trail to get a little muddy. Good steady incline!

Good trail. Decent amount of people. Not really what I expected, but was still fun. Wouldn’t do it again but glad I did it!

amazing forest. nothing beat being in between the trees with snow all around. Sure made for a fun trip up that steep hill full of snow.

Challenging at times, listened to owl talk to me and enjoyed the snowy view. I took a wrong turn and feel signage could be better. I will go again later Spring as too much snow closer to top. Lots of creek access for my lab so she was happy. 4 star because lack of signs.

Way too muddy today. I guess that’s what you should expect when it’s been raining all week including earlier today. Slipping and sliding the whole way. I think it will be a nice hike ewith a dry “er” trail. There were some pretty big tracks in the mud, which were probably from a black bear or a very big dog or someone with a black bear footprint maker walking stick, whatever that’s called. My dog is “supposedly“ a malamute and German shepherd mix, more on the German Shepherd size and those prints were way bigger than his. At first I thought mountain lion but after a little research, visible claws is unlikely to represent a cat.

Great views and a fun, challenging hike. Took me about 2:40 minutes to finish, I would have been quicker if it wasn’t for the 6” of snow on most of it! Crazy end of March weather.

Well maintained trail, some dog poop, very little trash. Beautiful forest.

It’s my favorite local long trail. On a nice day the view is fairly pretty, but don’t go on a popular day.

map is incorrect, the trail that is marked is actually the 300 rd not 400. Good hike overall as long as you don't mind elevation climb, I came in the actual 400 rd to the summit where it meets the 300 rd and went right then off on the 420rd back to the truck. there was no logging going on and only met one person the whole time.

Hreay trail. We met the director of Land Trust and learned a lot about the area.

Great place to walk the dog and get some exercise. Beautiful on a sunny day but Thursday there was a rainbow across the little valley and I did not have my phone to take a picture! Trails are still muddy in the shade.

I really enjoyed this hike but it’s not the most scenic.

Great trail! We did have to park across the highway because there’s only 4 spots.
