Went on this hike today and it was beautiful! A little tough getting up the mountain but the views were worth it! We also ended up taking a different path that veered off of the hex mountain trail which ended up being a mile shorter which was perfect. Great hike!

got to the trail head at 830. there was light rain but not much. the trail was in great shape. a few muddy spots but nothing that couldn't be worked around or walked through.

the falls were all especially strong today. the lower falls are great with a view of the middle falls in the distance.

the middle views are what you come for.

the trail to the upper falls is more difficult than the rest but nothing more than difficult moderate. the upper falls are great as well.

the valley overlook is also stunning.

Did this hike today and only needed Micro spike or diamond grips for secure traction. I recommend treking poles to prevent tripping over exposed rocks and tree roots. Enjoyed eating snacks in the heating hut back at the Marble Mountain sno park, it's open but please pack it out.

Great workout. Hiking through the forest was steep but do-able (be advised if bringing children). My dog had no problems with the varied terrain. At roughly the 2 mile mark, until the top, there is icy snow. Poles and snowshoes recommended, however, hiking boots are sufficient. Had to turn around near the 3 mile mark due to too deep of snow and the trail was unclear. Views were great even with clouds and had some snowfall. Minimal foot traffic on this trail which was nice. Will definitely be going back in a month or two in hopes of making it to the top!

Great trail, constant gain in elevation! This trail gives you no breaks. We went left at the Y and it seemed everyone we passed did as well. It was snowing and once you reached the Y it started accumulating. By the time we reached the summit it was several feet deep. Gators and micro spikes a must. You could use snow shoes, but would be till you nearly reached top. This is a very tight trail with lots of obstacles. Also, thanks to whoever installed the orange ribbons, it was a lifesaver in the snow!

Nice close to town trail. When you need to get out in the woods and you don’t have a lot of time this trail is a great option. Easy to drive to, plenty of parking for vehicles. As a hiker you will share the trail with bikes and horses so that impacts the conditions.

This was a fun, but challenging snowshoe!! The distance listed was a little off however. From the road that you have to start on due to snow closing the forest road, the total out and back distance was ~7.75Miles. It is a trek uphill, but the view at the top is ABSOLUTELY worth it. There are a couple of false summits so don’t be fooled. The view at the top is panoramic.

Did this hike in early December 2018 with a group. We had my son (12) and our younger pup (9 months). lower trail to Blue Lake was great, pretty easy with slight elevation gains and almost no snow. Got to the lake and there was icy snow and some frozen parts of the lake. Gorgeous view, would love to see in the spring time.
We doubled back and met up with the Dock Butte trail, which was significantly steeper and more challenging. encountered more and more snow, not too deep but enough that we didn't go all the way to the summit. Harder to find the actual trail in the snow, and the side does get really steep so keep your dog leashed as you reach the top. Ours started chasing some sliding ice and we almost lost him down the side.
Overall the views of the surrounding mountains were beautiful, and this was a challenging hike for us but not impossible with packs and a pre teen. would like to go back when there isn't snow and see the wildflowers.

Beautiful hike, a little too much elevation gain for my hiking partner.

I'd stay off the forest paths south of the upper parking area until late spring. Very slippery. Be fair warned, aforementioned trails are not maintained and are rugged. The beachfront area in Seahurst Park is a crown jewel of Burien.

Amazing trail you forget you are anywhere around the city

Went around 1030am on a Friday and there wasn’t much of a crowd. The trail is well maintained and you can feel the slight incline going up but it’s not overly challenging. Beautiful views at the top and a good spot to take a break with a snack before heading down. Took a little under two and half hours in total.

This is good for a one-way trail. The start of the trail closest to the freeway almost looks like it’s next to an old landfill. Walking up the trail into Milton it looks like every home developer chose to have their water drain flow beside the trail which takes away from the beautiful nature. I wanted to do this trail because I thought it would be good for rollerblading, but the surface is a little too rough and a lot of roots are already pushing through on the lower half.

rad rocks. semi slippery dirt. fence needs to be passed through at no fall some.

A great go to walk with your dog. Beautiful views of lake Washington and mt rainier on a sunny day

Good change from mountains

Hiked Kamikaze trail with Blake Erickson . Trail becomes very steep above the Teneriffe Falls. Trail was well marked and requires microspikes or crampons for the snow and ice conditions for the last part of the hike near the summit.

Great 50 degree winter hike. Just under 3 hours of adventure.

Clear cut beyond East Peak is very somber.

One of my all time favorite trails. The view is beautiful and I went on a clear day so you could see for miles and miles. We brought lunch to eat once we got up to the top as well.

I went up trail 110, and head down 140, made it back to the parking lot on trail 100. It was a great loop and I’ll do it again.

Trail could use some widening at certain points.

Hiked ice caves twice, well worth it. Easy hike, may need micro spikes in some areas of ice and snow.

Loved this hike, would suggest to start really early to avoid the crowds on your way up.

Beautiful, easy hike
