This is a gated private property now (Campbell Global). It requires a $250 permit in order to hike, fish, etc.

Took this hike with my very athletic son. He never broke a sweat, however I certainly did! Gorgeous views and quite a workout for me.

AMAZING first official hike since moving to the area!!! We took it nice and slow so we could take in the scenery and it did not disappoint! There were many beautiful views and not crowded at all, we passed 4 people the entire trip! The trail was semi muddy in some areas but that didn't stop us! My husband, myself and our dog will DEFINITELY be doing this one again!!

I went at 10 am on a Friday morning and it was uncomfortably packed. There were at least two scout groups of about ten to fifteen kids, and two adult groups of about ten each later up the trail. Not to mention the numerous single and double hikers. Because of the crowds the hike became unbearably slow and wasn’t tranquil. I guess I am a bit of a curmudgeonly hiker.

Having said the above, Pros: pretty views, lovely foliage, usually nice weather during the summer. Cons: going very slowly due to getting stuck behind so many crowds, listening to lots of other people’s conversations, stopping often to let others pass the opposite direction, difficulty finding parking.

I will say that this is a great hike for children because it has a fun payout for not too much effort. Just be sure to use the bathroom before you get to the trailhead because the bathrooms there are so gross.

I hope you all have a better experience than I did. :-) Happy hiking!

great hike and loved the view of falls

awesome hike ... early part no shade so a little exposed but latter half gets really deep into the forests .... the lake itself is on you all of a sudden so hidden it is ..... not much of a place to hang out but well worth it .... the return trip is at least 40 % faster !!

Awesome hike. Waterfalls are a must see.

Didn't have 10 dollars for a day pass so I didn't get to experience nature.

Good hike, Two beautiful lakes. We went there with kids (11 yr, 8 yr, 6 yr). Trail path is wide enough and good. Moderate crowd.

Lovely hike--tough finding the trail to the Butte as it is just near the Boxely Creek bridge and rather narrow but the best part is that it is in the forest and there was no one on it once we got off the gravel road. The view is not as nice as Rattlesnake but it was worth it to skip the crowds.

Lovely hike close to Seattle. Can be crowded.

Lovely cruise hike with just the right amount of mystery about which mountain creature you might run into (sadly this bear-hungry Aussie only came up against one mean squirrel but a nice handful of humans coming up the trail while we made our way down).

The beginning of the hike is easier and runs along side a river. You’ll start to hear the waterfall as you hike deeper and start to gain a little elevation. There is a fabulous lookout point with benches to enjoy the view of the waterfall from afar. The hike becomes a slightly harder with lots of change in elevation towards the waterfall. There are no signs on the trail. We ended up at the upper falls spot first and then went back down towards the lower falls lookout afterwards. Gorgeous hike!!

Overall good family friendly hike, it is busy though.

Nice views but the flies are terrible right now and several parts are loose rock. Even though rated easy, should have brought hiking shoes!

Fun way to spend a hot day! Views from upper and lower falls are gorgeous!

Since today was a hot and hazy August day I thought the shade on the trail would be a nice way to stay cool.
Overall, the shady center of the trail was the best part in my opinion. The first part and final parts of the trail are a little steep. I feel like Little Si is more challenging than the views are worth. However it's very well maintained and traveled.

My friend, who has just recently gotten into getting back into shape and I hiked this trail today. She is almost 60, and I am in my mid-sixties. We enjoyed many streams, tall trees, views of the South Fork of the Snoqualmie River, and just hanging out together. It is rated easy, and at our age and ability found it very doable but it’s still a workout. We went down to the lookout for the highest waterfall (lots of stairs and not all of them very even heights) and we are glad we did. Enjoyable day, even though it was in the 90’s by the time we were done, since there are virtually no places where the sun is beating down on you.

Fun hike with our dogs. Were able to have them off leash as the trail isn’t that populated. ran into maybe 6 people total the time we were there. The trail is overgrown in quite a few spots. Beautiful wildflowers. Careful with bugs, definitely need some bug spray. GPS said barely 5 miles.

Climbed on a hot day and the shade in the fern forests was great. One of my favorite hikes in Washington.

Attempted to hike Change Creek trail (up to what looks like Olallie Knob and J's Landing), marking post 108 on the John Wayne trail. There was a downed bee hive in the trail. 1 hiker coming down was stung 6+ times.

The quick portion we hiked was forested, steep, and tranquil.

pretty good hike, fun one with my son

My toddlers first hike! He loved it! Lots of other kids on the trail, nice people. Access to the water for playing or dipping in, which quite a few folks were doing. It was awesome. I can't wait until my son can go even farther when he gets bigger.

very easy and enjoyable hike. very pet and family friendly.

Did this 2 weeks back. Good one.

One of my favorite hikes to date. Pretty high traffic but worth it. My husband and I found a path that led to a part of the falls that was secluded and we took a dip in the ice cold, crystal clear water. Absolutely amazing. Won’t forget this hike!!
