I found two clear cuts coming from the Lake Sylvia side. Not a bad trail but nothing really interesting about it either.

Easy trail for kids. Neat little covered bridge along the way!

I’m giving five stars because I finished it. Oh my butt kicker.

Very relentless hike up the whole way. Got towards the top where the ridge loop is and we were hearing really strange noises that freaked out our daughter. Turned around right before the end. Thought downhill would be easier but very tiring. 5 hours total with lots of stopping to rest. Would rate this hard not a moderate hike.

There are two loops, 1.5 and 2.8 miles, and we hiked both. Trails wind up and down through old growth and new. Small and large bridges cross the lake, river, and creeks. Don’t miss the covered hiking bridge on the smaller loop. We met three nice dogs on leashes. Their owners were well-behaved.

They have the trails well marked at the moment which is nice. Hopefully no one moves the markers this time

We did the Brownie trail and then came back around to the lake. it was about 4.5 miles total. The first part of the hike was very steep but then it flattened out at the top. Great hike! There are much longer hikes here for those who want more.

Wonderful little trail.

A challenging hike indeed. I loved the water flowing down the mountain at the beginning part of the trail and got some pretty good shots. The views at the top were obstructed but it was such a peaceful and wonderful hike.

I liked the workout, but the trail was ugly from all the recent logging.

April 29th, great hike, weather was good, about half way through started raining a little. beautiful creeks, trees and trail.

Perfect hike for a family just very muddy this time of year as to be expected.

Nice trail but a lot of alcohol litter. If you pack it in, please pack it out.

deep snow towards the top but an adventure forsure!

Roads were snowy. Trail had slush so going down decline was tricky.

Amazing hike! We went on 2/18 and the weather was sunny with a little snow. The river is beautiful and the copper mines are pretty awesome. Make sure to bring strong flashlights and extra batteries if you want to explore them. The hike up is all incline and beautiful along the way. There snow was deep and icy towards the top so bring hiking poles. The trail was closed, and for good reason, where it leaves the river to go up to the ridge. We will definitely be back in late spring to see the views from the ridge.

Nice local hike for my family getting ready for backpacking this summer. Don't forget your discovery pass or 10 dollars for the fee area.

Beautiful today -nice drive. Easy stroll to the Falls. It was running fast with all the snow melting.

This is an excellent hike if you like roaring streams, old-growth forests and don't mind some relentless grade. The great views are not panorama, but places to stop and look at a gorgeous roaring stream that is dropping over 2,300 feet in less than 2.5 miles. The forest and the stream are both unspoiled, and the payoff view is beautiful. My daughter and I walked the entire loop in about 4.5 hours and thoroughly enjoyed it (in January!). We only had short stretches with about 2" of snow. It's an absolute treasure.

Went last weekend. Beautiful & peaceful place. Several very muddy spots but that's to be expected this time of year. Will definitely go again!

road and trail in great condition. falls were full and beautiful. Worth a Sunday drive in the rain. short hike that anyone could pass.
