we did this after hiking 6 miles on goat ridge and phew were we tired! the climb is definitely not for wimps as there are no switchbacks and lots of elevation gain in a short three miles. never mind that you’re already at a little altitude to start. you’re basically slow marching, knees up! there are even steps cut in with stone in a few spots. we had to laugh as we descended because we were again surprised at the incline in some spots. nice trail, beautiful lake, amazing basalt walls. the dogs had a blast swimming and there wasn’t a sole in sight so it was quiet. be aware of the road leading to the trailhead, it’s small and barely hanging on in one spot.

Falls are beautiful. Supposedly, the trail up to the lookout is down at the moment but they are trying to get it finished. My dad lives about 1 mile from this hike so I do it quite often. Great workout. Can't wait until we can hike all the way to the top.

My nine year old and myself did the whole loop, and it was an easy hike.. Absolutely gorgeous!

Short easy walk. Several areas to access river bed. Our kids really enjoyed this and there were several families swimming/wading. The trees were amazing with a beautiful boardwalk and great informational placards.

Very easy hike yesterday... Trees were majestic, amazing, almost ethereal... Cool one person bridge.

Some beautiful large trees and a lovely green river! Family loved skipping rocks!

Love this trail!

Really interesting and beautiful to look at the trees. And the bridge is a fun element!

I would recommend go now it is in perfect condition. No snow, trail groomed, thank you parks department. Lake was in great condition, look forward to the next visit, the only down draw to this hike was the incline gain with elevation. No switch backs though.

The trees are impressive.

Trail in good condition. The lake is beautiful.

This was a beautiful trail to hike. We started off at Silver Falls trail and ended up here. The entire hike we were amazed at nature’s beauty thought the entire way. One thing worth mentioning is that there’s a bridge that you have to cross but only one person at a time. So on our way back across the bridge we had to wait like 10 minutes because people were crossing from the other side and would stop. They would start crossing before other people were off so we just waited patiently for our opportunity. Other than that the trees were amazingly gorgeous. Simply mind blown at the size and beauty of the trees. Definitely a trail I will bring my 6 year old son on next time.

Beautiful views. A great way to realize how tiny you are on this planet.

The one lane road is in okay condition. lots of potholes but that's to be expected. there is a small sign to mark the trailhead. I got 3.8 miles up, so almost to the top and the trail seemed to be washed out and snow covered so I couldn't tell which way to go. Beautiful trees. I'm sure if I could have made it to the top it would have been beautiful.

Incredibly amazing place to take your kids and learn about old-growth forests - land of 1000 yr old giants! We definitely will be back again soon. Just inside the park!

This is a great hike for kids and beginners such as myself. Easy, yet beautiful. The trees are astonishing!

I have never actually done this said trail! But burley mountain lookout itself is an old fire lookout in which you can drive too. However I wouldn’t recommend taking a full size. Coval creek and angel loop falls trail at cispus learning center offer a trail that takes you to the lookout! It’s a climb! Once you reach the top you can see Mount Rainier, St. Helens. and mount hood! Tongue mountain and the side of tower rock.
You are surrounded by wild blue berries! You can see more with a good set of binoculars! The view is breathtaking.

Roads are closed. We tried,to get there in Dec Mt Rainier hwy 123...closed

Easy hike among the giants.

Quick and beautiful loop that can easily done by all levels of experience. It had a cool foot bridge with a gorgeous view of the river. Ancient forest was amazing and the air just smelt so pure (im from NYC so fresh air is rare...lol). Great trail, took about 45 mins to complete!

This is a short and easy hike which I took as an offshoot of the Silver falls trailhead at Ohanapecosh campground. It's a beautiful hike through an ancient forest and a must do!

The trail is a bit busy with motorcycles but I'm into that so it doesn't bother me. The trail isn't closed per se but the road to it is washed out and construction crews are currently working on it and should have it passable by the fall. It is accessible by the Valley trail until then.

Drove 2 hours and the trail was closed! Maybe AllTrails could add trail status to its app

Great for kids and learning a thing or two. With a 3 year old and 10 week old, short easy hikes with fun stuff to look at are key. Although it is often crowded, this hike has everything a kiddo needs to keep entertained. Huge trees, a fun suspension bridge and a rocky area by the river to throw rocks. If your looking for something your grandma or toddler can do, this is the trail for you. Even if you don't fit those demographics the 1000 year old trees make the short walk worth it.

we stayed at ohanapecosh campground and walked there from the trailhead in the campground (walk to the falls, you'll see the sign for the grove trail toward the highest point of the falls). wore my boots for this section as there are some knots, roots systems and rocks. the trail dumps you out on to 123 across the street. pretty little adventure walk but the grove was insanely busy (Wednesday afternoon in august). this is a great place for people to go who want to be out in nature but don't really get out. also great for kids. little suspension bridge at the end to get to the final loop (we waited in line for about 10 minutes to cross). the loop at the end is 90% boardwalked. not my cup of tea due to all the people and their cell phones and selfies. definite tourist trap. do not recommend for the outdoor enthusiast; you'll just get irritated. great for families and small kids.

Breathtaking scenery, was excellent hike with Michael. Giant trees in lush forest. Recommend to everyone as a must see in Mount Rainier National Park.

Had a great time with the grandson. Went early so the trail was pretty much ours when we got there. Was quite a bit busier as we came back out. all in all a fabulous day.
