Convenient location to hike, parking is issue have place to park only 5 cars on road side.
Initial hike uphill is steep for around half mile. Even thought its total hike is around 3 miles, its very tiring and will take around 2 hrs to complete the loop.

It’s a good hiking course for beginners. We could enjoy this course easily, because they don’t have hill. I want to recommend you to go on sunny day! But there are some problems. Its about sign. We lost many times, because there are no sign and incorrect signs. We could enjoy even being lost, but they have to make more.

Today I went on this trail and it was great. At first the trail was confused us and we got lost but in the end we found the trail and keep hiking. The trail had a lot of different plants and was a beautiful day to hike. Personally I really enjoyed and I would do it again in the future

In my experience, this lake is fantastic and well worth a visit. This place is a good place to bring family to enjoy the endless natural beauty. Here you can see a variety of people and many activities. A lot of people come here to breathe fresh air, bike, and walk along the river to see the scenic beauty. Especially, if you have children, this is a place that can not be ignored. I recommend coming here on a nice sunny day - very beautiful and uplifting in so many ways. I would definitely go back here for a relaxing afternoon and some nature time.

This trail was wonderful for me to hike. The lake and trail were hard to find for a bit because they are hidden by big trees; in addition, there were only few sigh on the street. However, if you look up carefully, you are going to be okay and enjoy. Actually, it was my first hike like this spot. Even though it is little bit hard to find them, it was fun. Getting lost is also going to be a good memory. I actually got lost, but it is also true that I saw some nature that I didn't expected in the way of lost. I really recommend this place.

This is a great trail, we went to the lake to lake trail today. The lake and trail hidden in the city, just like some magical, heavenly place. I didn’t know that. My childhood dream is I can live in a place where the house hidden in the forest, today I saw. The human live in harmony with animal and natural. While you are walking down the trail, you can saw some people greetings with you, you can saw a cat walking towards you and invited you to touch it, you can saw ducks walking around people. That was the scene of my dreams.

I went to the trail as an activity with classmates. The trail seems suitable for beginners or people who want to walk with no pressure because it wasn't steep or rough to walk. Actually, we couldn't find clear signs for directions, we got lost at first. However, walking around the lake with nice weather was really great. I could enjoy casual hikes there. Also, I can say it was close to walk than hike.

Today, it was my first time to go the hiking. It was a good experience I enjoyed it, but the only problem I had it was about sign mark. My class and I,we had difficulty to find our ways. We got lost three times. We asked some people that we met and we asked them our ways. When we were walking today, we found some sign that was not in proper place. My suggestion you should make the sign mark more efficiently and precisely to find our ways even new people who try to have a new experience and fun.

Today we had an activity with our teacher. I could say it was a very wonderful experience. We visited two lakes that were very beautiful. We saw animals there: cat, frog, wild ducks, and so on. During our journey, it was always a beautiful view, and we were immersed in that beautiful environment. There were also lots of people around those two lakes which meant it was so enjoyable. Everything was so natural that we did not want to leave those fascinating place.

Phantom Lake Park is a 1.5 to 3 mile hike near Bellevue College. Today I hiked with my teacher and classmates. This hiking is not very hard for me, especially on a good weather’s day, the hiking have so much fun. In my opinion, most people will think this hiking is quite easy, because the road is not so far, and also flat. We always lost today, the road from lake to lake is not very easy to find. We saw a lot of animals, such as ducks, dogs, cats, birds and so on. If you’re prone to allergies, you need to prepare some medicine in advance, because you need to be exposed to a lot of plants. In summer, it is also necessary to prepare some insecticides.

I took a class of students there and had a good time. Yes, I would definitely do this trail again — it’s pretty easy and both lakes are incredibly beautiful little lakes. On the negative side, the trail isn’t always very well marked, so we actually got lost for about 10 or 15 minutes. At times, the trail is really confusing with all of the different paths, adjoining streets and intersections, etc. We actually had to stop and ask a couple people if we were going to Larsen Lake. Overall, it’s a nice easy hike that takes about an hour and a half

The length of the trail is suitable for me. It took me around 7000 paces to walk from lake to lake, which is healthy to the body. It would take around one hour if you walk quickly. The two lakes are hidden inside the farm and park. Separated from the noisy environment, the lakes gave me a peace. I didn't feel tired, especially walking with my classmates together in the beautiful weather. I think it's a good trail for walking after dinner. After a whole day's working, you can relax here.

5/19/2018 (Saturday) -- I added this route and AllTrails approved it. It seems that most Red Town users may not take Military Road Trail up to Sky Country, and then down to Coal Creek Falls. This is loop of about 2 hours' walk that requires more efforts than those most popular trails with moderate elevation gains (more than 700 ft), so it should be considered as an ideal workout for less energetic but active hikers.

For a first hike...initial incline was crazy. A little difficulty following trail as it mixes with other trails.

Perfect easy trail. Good variety of landscape and scenery. Loved it!

Great for a little trail run with the dog

3/15/2018 (Thursday) - Sunny afternoon with mild wind, 55F+, from Evergreen Point P&R to the UW side of the bridge, back and forth.

decently tough hike. the view from the top is great! two view point from top. a restroom at the top is a great help!

Great short trail through an old growth forest patch. Parking is a bit of a pain.

Nice trail not too far from the city. Wasn't too busy, with a good mix of scenery - old woods, swampy marsh, farm land. Great berry picking in the summer.

Not too heavily trafficked. It was fun to explore the Slough. not the prettiest of views with the highway and office park but, smooth easy kayaking and a fun few hours on the water.
