We decided to take a drive and see what Lewis River Falls was about. Lower part is closed but middle and high part is open. You could still walk about 2 miles to get from middle fall to the lower fall. We decided to just take the middle fall trail. The trail is nice but a little dangerous for the little ones. Gotta make sure they dont slip. The middle fall was beautiful but cant get in the water from that area since it will drag you. We did ask around and a family did mention that the walk to the lower fall wasnt bad. I will have to drive back once the Lower part is open and check the river fall.

my husband and I went today, we had fun. the trails are beautiful maintained and it's cool to see the old buildings and learning about the history of the place.

everyone was correct about the jagged rocks and uneven surfaces to get to the lake. Even with that being said the view was majestic, and well worth the trek to the top. Spectacular views in the way up as well. there is a washed out area in the beginning

Snow around the lake, bugs during the afternoon.

Awesome! I love this Trail. It’s great for running because it separates pedestrians and bikes. Most people are there to exercise so you don’t get groups hanging out and blocking the trail. There is views of Mt Rainer in the South direction and views across the water of the Olympics in the North direction.

Attempted to hike on 5/22/2020, the road to the trail was closed and covered with snow. it was about 3 miles to the trailhead but didn’t go as not equipped to hike on snow. will be back later in the year

Loved this trail! Lots of people - so best to go on a weekday if possible. Wear solid shoes as there are plenty of rocks and depending on the previous day’s weather, it it might be pretty muddy. Super fun and lots of good incline. So beautiful.

Great trail but heavy logging left many open areas.

The trail was gorgeous, lots of wildflowers throughout! The views at the end are WELL worth the climb. The drive in to the trailhead has lots of potholes so be prepared for that. There's river water at the trailhead but no water access during the hike so make sure to pack plenty in!

This was a fun trail. I went off the main trail to make it more challenging, and that was the best decision I could have made. Short hike but worth it!

This magical fairytale-like trail is a perfect outing for kids. It’s very easy with little elevation change and you hike through a few different biomes. There is plenty of flora and fauna, as well as amazing water features. Our dogs loved it too (leashed). It would be the perfect 5 mile run without kids. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I personally enjoyed this little meander.

Really great late spring hike- a lot of sun exposure, epic views and beautiful flora.

Watch out this trial has rattle snakes..

Absolutely beautiful hike. I did it with my 12 year old and we both enjoyed it very much.

Birthday #66 hike today. Beautiful day for a hike in the time of Covid. Arrived at 8:45 am trail was busy but almost everyone was social distance appropriate.

The trail was great today, it was muddy/snowy in areas but nothing too bad. The bridge crossing the river is gone but the logs work well as a bridge, there’s also a fallen tree that we had to crawl under to continue on the trail. No restrooms are open to use, so plan ahead. Overall a beautiful hike and beautiful day!

Muddy patches still there from spring rain, boots with good ankle support and sticks recommended!

It’s great. 10/10

This is my favorite hike I've ever done! Great variety of scenery and terrain. I went up the old trail and down the new trail. Old trail is definitely more fun. lots of mud and a good workout. once you get near the end it becomes harder to find the trail, had to look for the diamonds on the trees to help find my way. The boulder mound to get to the mailbox is all sun exposed, so wear sun screen. The view on the top is amazing and there is room for lots of people. Going down on the new trail is pretty boring and felt never ending, but it is easy on the knees. Will definitely do again, will try to go down the old trail if it gets less muddy!
