Gorgeous hike! Trails are well maintained.

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.

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.

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

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!

Great trail to make a nice workout. but I am also way outta shape

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.

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.

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.

This was fun hike. Was a little steeper in places than others said it was. That being said my family of 5 did this hike in a couple hours.

love the Allen Throop loop but I usually add it to Mulkey creek trail and start at Oak Creek side of bald hill. Cardwell hill I did'nt enjoy as much as these.

I did this as a night hike it felt pretty comfortable even in the dark would like to go back during the day to check out the scenery

horseback riding

Majority of the riding is on gravel roads. We found ourselves passing trail after trail closed to horses. I didn’t like being confined to the gravel. This is not a good place to ride. Loading and unloading is right on Hwy 99. This should not be listed for horses

Very happy that the people who use these trails clean up after themselves and their animals.

First off its impossible to get lost. The loop basically climbs in elevation and loops the ridge. It was helpful to keep my app on hand to check how the trails connected. This is not aggressive riding but still very enjoyable. We were able to find some grade and water crossings to challenge our animals. I would recommend this for a good day ride. You could easily return for several trips and find new routes. Riding clockwise be aware the last stretch back to the start is on the paved road, approximately one mile.

Great trail with great elevation gain.

love this trail system. I generally wonder all over to try and get closer to my goal of 20 miles a day

I do this as a loop, and usually swing by dimple hill on the way ! I love this area.

Easy access off of hwy 99. Parking has 4 spots. Across the street is parking at the mini mart. Few people, my 12 and 6 year old had no problem. Made the trip early Janurary 2018 just alittle rain. Great hike in the woods.

I went back in early December of a sunny day. Bit unclear at times when I came to a couple forks in the road. I looped around the southwest side and the view of Mary's Peak getting swallowed by a storm cloud was awesome! Overall, challenging and enjoyable day.

Amazing and rather well maintained.

Bring good company

Steep and pretty.

An enjoyable New Years Day walk. Stopped for a lunch break near the top.

Great view but hard trail
We took 50 minutes to get to the top
If we took an easier trail, we will need more time
