My wife (who is 7 months pregnant) and I hiked this today on our way back from Ocean Shores to Battle Ground. We had hiked around part of this trail a few years ago and wanted to take advantage of the sunny early spring day. We were not disappointed. First let me say this trail claims to be wheelchair friendly, however you better be some sort of a wheelchair ninja with a Hummer style wheelchair, or have a pretty strong friend to get you around.

Overall this is a gem! The interpretive section of the trail on the North end the lake is amazing. The trail to the West of the creek is narrow and does not quite make it all the way around to the far bridge, but it's worth the trip on that side. As for the East loop around the lake it's quite boring compared to the rest of the trail and is where you do most of your climbing. Once you get going back down and cross the South bridge at the head of the lake you are back to the cool part of the trail. The trail was quite muddy in spots, but overall still "easy" (again not so if you are in a wheelchair I assume). If you were wondering about this, it is well worth the 5 min drive off of hwy 12/101 . 2 thumbs up!
