great little hike. nice shade, and well groomed. definitely hike again.

Did this October 2017. Exposed. Great views of Columbia River. Extreme wind. More mountain bikers than hikers, except at top of ridge where it is extremely steep. Had to descend quickly due to storm, but it did bring a rainbow in addition to cold rain.

Good hike. Knocked it out in just under 3 hours carry 60 extra lbs. Flat for the first 2-ish miles but significant increase the last part. A little confusing toward Green Mt Vista. A lot of converging trails.

Great hike with amazing views! There were some patches of overgrowth but it’s not too bad. Pretty easy hike with 2 dogs and we didn’t see anyone else on the trail, which is hard to find around here.

great workout and absolutely fantastic views

I love this hike. It’s pretty level with slight incline but it’s really beautiful and well trafficked so that means safe. You can feel safe on this trail if you are alone. You pass someone quite often so as this isn’t a private secluded trail, it’s still a nice little distance for a quick run or hike. Lots of small paths and trails cut away and those can be more secluded and add some more trail time to your hike. The main loop is the busier route. Easy parking but a discover pass is required (or you can pay for the day) A few benches along the hike to take a break and picnic tables near the bridge.

it was an easy trail to the top. you will see the sign of a teen who passed away by falling from the cliff. so one thing to be noted: please be aware and conscious. the view from the top was blocked as it was cloudy. but worth a try for its nearness to the city of redmond

Lots of trail markers but this hike in red doesn’t include the whole loop. Technically the necklace expands above what’s mapped out here if you follow trail markers and not this app. If you go off the red trail here your distance increases from 4.6 to closer to 7 miles.

Nice trail. Saw one post that it was not well marked, but only found that to be true near the top where trail changed names. Rated a 4 b/c we ran into dirt bikers on trial, not real the reason I hike.

I ride my dirt bike on this trail, it’s a blast!!!!

Went this weekend and did the full trip. Closer to 18 miles once account for for the hike to the campsites and back.

Extremely hot, coming back was more challenging than the first day. Partially because you’re sore. Partially because it’s up almost the whole way— albeit not as steep.

Biggest con is the forest area is extremely thick so there was zero breeze. Bugs were fine, but we did see snakes closer to the end of the trail. Also, it’s not quite bushwhacking level, but once you’re to the lesser travelled part it does become overgrown.

Would do again on a cooler weekend for sure.

My girlfriend and I loved this. We did it in conjunction with Mckenny Trail and had a great 9 mile hike. I would say moderate/easy difficulty as there are not many sustained climbs. We did run into a couple folks on horseback and several bikers. There is some horse manure but it was not enough to warrant any frustrations for us. If I could do this trail again it would be on a mountain bike. Would have been great to ride in my opinion.

Great hike, but be prepared for hike a steady incline

Nice bike ride with a few hills. Paved for the 11.5 miles. Easy to moderate depending on your level and bike training.

Great hike. Gorgeous views. My grandkids loved playing in the lake. We will definitely do it again.

great loop hike with plenty of shady forest and fantastic pool of water at base of small waterfall. beware of broken glass in the water and around the pool.

U don't have to drive to the mountains to experience Great Northwest Woods, with panoramic views of the Puget Sound and the Narrows Bridge(s) We saw Bambi, about 20 seals on the point, but don't get too close to the edge! unfortunately no Sasquatch sighting. great family hike for all where you can take your dog, and at least for us within easy reach of home, a great starter hike...

Nice forest walk with well marked trails. Even my cat liked it.

was a great hike well worth it beautiful waterfall and the water was not that cold nor was it deep

so beautiful! brutal uphill but great downhill.

Hiked July 14 and was gorgeous! Lots of streams, snowfields, and rock scrambles along the trail that made it a challenging hike, but the views are so worth it!

We arrived at the trailhead at 8:40am today. We find a parking spot in the parking lot. The trail was not very busy when we hike. The view at the top was stunning! It’s a relatively easy trail in my opinion, not so much as moderate. When we hike down, the amount of people gets larger and we feel fortunate to start early.

This was my backyard for several years and is s nice place to safely walk in town without having to concern yourself with traffic. Great views on clear days.

A terrific trail. This is a great “moderate” trail as it has plenty of hills and flat parts. There are no water spots or restrooms along the trail, but there are plenty of exits along the trail if you want to make it shorter. I will definitely do this again.

Did this on Mother’s Day. Great hike, beautiful views. Not great for our big dog—hike has no shade and rocks were too hot for his paws. Take care with dogs.

This is a very nice trail, except it's easy to get lost. I would not consider it easy with all of the steep hills. I did love it, except not knowing what direction to go.

Amazing hike! Beautiful views of Rainier on a clear day. Plenty of spots to camp along the way up and at the top. The bumpy road to the trailhead is definitely worth it.

Started the trail at 830 am to avoid a lot of the crowd but it was still pretty packed at that time of day (probably because it’s a weekend). Moderate hike to Rattlesnake ledge and the view was definitely worth it! We continued on to Eastridge (I think that’s what it was called) which is 2.4 miles up from Rattlesnake ledge. There is a great view if Mt Si from the top with a bench to enjoy the view.

Really nicely maintained trail. Parking at the trail head is crazy and please be a good human being and buy a northwest forest pass. Awesome waterfalls.
