Great hike for intermediate level and with dogs. Not a lot of sites to see but view was good

Loved it. This trail followed the gravel up to the top- Very steep. Great view of the valley at one point. My 4 year old twins loved hiking with me on this one!

Did this hike today! Pretty decent work out, not packed at all which was nice, but there was no real view so that was a disappointment. We decided to try to find goat hill, got lost found some people who guided us thank god! But over all it was still nature which was great!!!

Good quick workout, don't do it for the views. Parked outside the gate (it doesn't open until 8am) Near the beginning of the gravel road up, there is a path to the left over a tiny bridge, it's a more wooded natural path that avoids a lot of the gravel switchbacks. There are a few spots for views of the valley which will probably be most clearly seen in the cooler months when the deciduous trees drop their leaves. Took about an hour to the 'peak' which comprised of two benches in the trees. No view. We hiked down the other side on the Cal Magnusson Trail where there are some neat rock formations. once at the other parking lot, we took the right side trail by the big rock and bike rack, which is pretty steep. as the whole trail system loops we basically just always stayed to the right at forks the whole hike. Hiked on a Saturday morning mid Sept. and as we were leaving it was starting to get busy. Arrive early to avoid the crowds.

Pretty quick to complete hike, not terribly difficult for kids. Mix of gravel road and well worn dirt trails. Not needed for the view, best for getting in shape for more strenuous hikes.

it was a fun hike with many trails leading to the same point, but there was no real good viewpoint from the top.

Easy walk but no waterfall at all. Wait for rainy season.

Easy walk but there was no water fall at all, so it was disappointing. Need to wait for the rainy season.

Decent up and down, the trail is well maintained. The views are 6/10. Good exercise trail, easy to get to, relatively close.

We’ve done it a couple times.

Not much waterfalling..but I like to take friends "newer to hiking" on this trail. Always different in different seasons.. trail in great shape.. we climbed up to the bottom of the falls.

Enjoyed this hike, unfortunately the falls were almost nonexistent. Would like to try again earlier in the summer.

This is a fun family hiking trail with just a couple of short hills. There are a couple of view points on an otherwise wooded trail. Great for just a walk in the woods. The trail was in great shape with just a bit of brush encroaching in a few places. Bugs weren’t bad hiking mid morning.

This has been around for a while...I’m 71... decent difficulty... good work out. If you did this daily you would be well tuned for similar hikes with some climb to them. Good exercise...Worth your time.

Really calm and relaxing to watch the sunrise up there

great hike!

this is a great trail, rain or shine its fast makes you sweat ..

Took this short hike with family, including 2 4-yr olds. Went to the falls and back taking the right path. Easy hike with mostly shade. Very little water from the falls but still worth the trip. I want to go back in early spring when there is a lot of runoff. The falls should be amazing then.

Great well maintained trail! Beautiful area as well.

Nice forest hike, but falls were a little disappointing for the kids. Recommend taking the right leg of the loop up and down if you have kiddos or aren’t feeling spry, because the left leg has a bunch of rock scrambles that invite injuries with a slip, trip, or misstep.

Nice set of trails with great foliage and trees. Some parts are HARD, but most of it is MODERATE. None of the trails are marked which can be unnerving, but you just keep going up and if you run into someone, they can show you how to make it to the top where the two benches are. There are trails you can use to avoid the gravel road and you are not likely to get lost.

Mostly a gravel road with no real view at the top. Didn’t make me feel like I was somewhere unique. Gave it a 2 instead of a 1 because at least it had a bathroom that was well taken care of. I am also not sure why it is rated as a hard hike. It’s only 1.5 miles up and approx 1,200ft elevation gain. The top 200-300 ft is steep but is a very short section in the grand scheme of things. Lots of dog poop and lots of dogs off leashes which there is a sign that specifically says dogs are to be on leash.

LOVE this trail! It's a tough one but so worth it!!

Was trying to get to noble knob, but ended up here due a closed road. Wasn't sure how long the hike was and it was a hot day, so only made it about half way. A lot of long switchbacks up a steady incline. Most of the hike is through a fire torched forest. Kind of cool to see, but a lot of downed trees to cross and loose footing. Not many views, but I'm sure if I would've kept going to the top there may have been some.

Come for the workout, not the views. The trail is well marked and maintained. there is a portapotty that was maintained when I was there. Scenery is nice but there weren't really any mountain views today. If you bring kids, be sure they have good shoes and can hold their footing on the way down. I'll do it again though.

Great hike that has trees/forest, waterfalls, and rocks...the trifecta! We chose to turn back at the falls instead of completely the loop because the trail beyond the falls began looking questionable.

Lots of snow on the trail, no chance to keep on the trail when in the trees. GPS needed. Great hike.

Great hike to kill some time. Deer will walk along beside you. Not many view points along the way up.

I very much enjoyed this hike. It is easy and the drive out to it on 410 is amazing. In the valley bugs are a bit of an issue, but as soon as you move up hill at all they are gone. The waterfall is amazing and if you want to fill up your water it is easy to do here. This is kid friendly and easy access for folks that might be newer to hiking. As a reminder to dog owners, please keep those pups on a leash.
