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.

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.

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

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.

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.

The shortest route the app suggests (coming from Kingston ferry) is gated and padlocked in the middle of June. 5' tall grass on the closed side of gate. Maybe try the longer way or bag this altogether.

The waterfall looks awesome with all the snow melt and rain runoff. It was actually shooting back up into the air.

The trail from Staircase to Upper Duckabush camp was in great condition, but the climb up from the Duc to Marmot Lk had several down trees to get over/around. Water was available everywhere, even in this dry year (Sept 2016). No bugs. Side trip or alternate destination of Hart Lake is well worth it.

This is a quick hike downhill to the cutest little falls at the end! We packed a lunch and ate at the bottom. It's a great little swimming (wading) pool at the bottom too. Definitely off the beaten path! Make sure your gas tank is full before driving out to this one. ;)

Good hiking trail for small kids and dogs. Lots of cool little bridges including a covered one. Roughly 2.3 miles round trip from Lake Sylvia State Park campground. We have done the trail in the winter too and it looks totally different with frost, snow and ice.

Nice hike, great overnight stay in the campground. I have MS and CHF so I had to take the uphill portions of the trail slow, but I did it! Would be slick in rainy weather. Campgrounds were quiet and well kept. Clean facilities include showers. Canoe was tied up right at the site.
