2 big uphill sections (relative of course)

a challenge for kids but doable!

Really nice trail great for kids under three but can’t be difficult with all the ups and downs and great for handicap.

Fun, easy trail. Took our 2 dogs and it was easy for them. Lots to see. Ran into a few people on the trail but not too populated. There was no waterfall, it was dry. Cool seeing the old mine and other great historical markers!

Completely dry

Not much significant to look at, but nice complexity and challenge.

Great place to easily and quickly get out of the city and hit the trails. Lots of potential for many different routes and distances.

Great trail. Huge parking lot, easy trail surface. We took a detour to see some falls so our hike was 9 miles. Not too hard with elevation. Lots of streams, bridges, well maintained. Saw horses & runners.

Beautiful nature jaunt! This was a perfect day/time of year for this trail. The signs were a bit confusing at times, so I recommend having a map or knowing the intersections and names of the trails ahead of time. Definitely dog and kiddo friendly w/light traffic. I will be back with my dogs when in the area again. Great experience!

Hiked this trail last night 04/18/2018. Ran into a black bear about a half mile from the intersection of 148th and 216th. Stopped walking and let him figure out where he wanted to go. He jumped into the woods and we continued by where he had been making sure to be loud. One restroom only at the main trailhead.

first hike on the west coast! temperature was great. there are a few stretches of up hill battles. all in all a nice hike with a lot of scenic views throughout the woods. not much of a spot to lookout at other mountains.

Snow on ground on first half of hike, rain/hail/drops from melting snow during second half. Grab the map at the kiosk, so many trail markers and intersections. Lots of trail runners even with snow. Will go back to run trails and go to Calcutta Restaurant at Newcastle golf resort for mimosa flight and real putt putt golf with a view!

Have never done the full loop but it’s within walking distance of my parents house so I try to walk parts often. Never crowded, wide, well maintained path. Surrounded by woods.

I am not sure why this wouldn’t get more 5 stars. It’s appropriately rated, easy to get to, trial is nice, and there are many many smaller trails to make it more challenging or longer. I went to both waterfalls, the first set is about .5 miles from the cul de sac, and cascade waterfalls are 1.0 in but another .5 uphill to get to. Very little mud, very few hikers (2pm on a Thursday till 5pm). I had a small dog and a baby strapped to my front and was comfortable the whole time.

Wasn't what I expected. It was very dull for me & my dog. If you want a long flat hike for a few miles it's okay. But nothing special.

Easy hike with kids. We did a couple side trails too for about a 4mile total hike.

very easy hike, both of my knees are bad and this trail was pretty easy going. A couple of Tylenol were needed on the way back but not too bad.
