Absolutely loved it. Davis trail was beautiful and we saw a beaver dam and other signs. There were some easy points. watch out for horses.

Great hike in 90 degree weather. Once you get to the vista a nice breeze comes in, a bench and beautiful views. I’m not saying it was easy getting there and then if you follow alltrails map to the end...... oh my, straight up little path with very loose rocks. Once at the end of trail another beautiful view and picnic tables . Going down smooth but watch for loose rocks as it is steep at times. Seems a lot of people like this area, busy trail but not too bad.

Great hike! I took the Gold Creek trail up, then split off onto the Plummer trail on the way back down. Plummer trail had loose dirt and rocks that made it a bit slick in places. Gold Creek trail was technical in spots but overall a well-marked trail with great views of the San Juan islands. I took the Vista trail at the end and caught a glimpse of Mt. Rainier.

Great spot for a quick hike. Trail was well kept & clean. Not crowded like some other hikes. Plenty of free street parking if you don’t have a discover pass. Beautiful view at the top!

What a great hike!! I loved being able to bring my pup along and see sweeping views of the Puget Sound and a way of distant Seattle skyline. Don’t forget your Discover Pass because there is no way to snag a day permit. Beautiful overcast day with fantastic array of weather!

waterfalls, views and a steady trail. Add on the upper section on wildcat trail for a panoramic view of the Puget Sound.

Fun trail! You do have to run through some logged areas but it makes for nice views. Sufficiently challenging run without being too difficult and absolutely beautiful- I’ll definitely be back.

We went in January and the views were beautiful. Lots of pee on the trail, though it could have been rain....

Love this trail, easy and beautiful!

Great hike! Did it in the rain in the winter and didn’t see anyone else out on the trail! Loved it!

very beautiful place

Fair hike. Took me 45 minutes to reach the top. The best views came from the logging area about 3/4 of the way up.

The views were beautiful, but I would not use any of the rest room facilities.

It's a good moderate hike - not the lush forests of the Olympics, but a nice mostly shaded option for a warm weather trek.
The views from about 3/4 to the vista were lovely of the surrounding lakes and woods.
Cons: The last part of the trail crosses and follows along a logging road and clear cut area which is a little sad to see for forest enthusiasts. Also the trail is shared with motor dirt bikes that can be noisy and a bit sketchy when they come hauling around blind corners. Ran into them mostly in the lowest parts of the hike.

Overall it's a nice short day hike, we started late afternoon and it took maybe 1.5-2 hrs up from the trailhead parking lot to the vista and back.

Great views, moderate hike.

This is the closest hike to where I live so I use it pretty frequently to get a bit of a workout without having to drive 1+ hours away. My main issue with this trail is that 80% of the people who have dogs don't keep their dogs on leash. I have had other off leash dogs 'rush' my on leash dogs more times than any other place I have hiked combined. One time I even had two pits bulls run towards my dogs from 30 feet away and jump on them and getting in a fight, which was terrifying. Overall it's a fun, quick hike with nice views at the top, I just wish more people would respect the other users who use this trail. I have even been thanked by other people for keeping my dogs on leash pretty much every time I'm on this trail which is sad since I'm just doing what I'm supposed to in the first place.

if you love the outdoors and you like a great hike on a sunny day but stay cool is the trail for you
