We enjoyed this hike. Gorgeous terrain. Many teens and an oasis just past a residential area in Renton. Who knew!?

Hiked this recently on a trip to Seattle. This trail was amazing! And I loved seeing all the dogs on the trails.

3/19/2018 (Monday) - Two-hour loop from outside the gate at the end of SE 87th St (driving from 144th PL SE). Move up counterclockwise along an unmanaged trail which connects to De Leo Wall trail, go downhill a little to the intersection with Wildside trail, then go uphill back to the top of the De Leo Wall, move down along the Terrace Trail of Newcastle City.

really nice forest trail.

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.

Great trail. Lots of different side trails to choose from. Far Country Falls was amazing to see

Great for after work walks with your pup!

Great workout in beautiful scenery, trees, ferns, and quiet once away from highway. Dogs enjoyed it. End of trail somewhat anti-climactic as no view! Made loop out of it.

10/7/2017 (Saturday) -- A section of trail from YMCL is improved. The trail along the Golf Club Rd is in good condition for easy walk, but rarely used. It is not marked on the map (AllTrails, OCM..). To get some fun, I like to opt for Primrose Trail along the creek, but it is still quite dry, not much water.

10/6/2017 (Friday) - Because of limited parking places at the trailhead, with somewhat dangerous condition on the side of the increasingly busy SR900, I did not dare to park there, so I parked at the Wilderness Creek TH as usual. Both Squak Mtn Connector and Squak West Access on the other side of SR900 are in superb condition, well-maintained though rarely used, gently grading, much easier than the much busier Wilderness trails. I turned back from the juncture of Squak West Access and Coal Mine Trail.

Well maintained trail but NOT easy. Most of the elevation gain is in the first 2 miles of the Wilderness Peak Trail and of course you have to go back down those same steep parts at the end. Not for a Novice! My partner and I were having a lot of trouble with it. Nice trail, but seriously mis-labeled. (Shy Bear was great all around though.)

Great blackberries too!

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.

A great quick hike that feels like it's in the middle of nowhere. Interesting with lots of ups, downs, and little bridges. The first part is quiet and secluded. The last .2 mi gets quite close to residential back yards. Take your poles since there are plenty of roots to hop over. THERE IS parking at the south end on 112th street. This lets you go mostly uphill going North and then returning mostly downhill.

Nice place to go walking. No spectacular views or anything. Pretty easy trails. Highly trafficked.

Very easy and really lovely and peaceful

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.

Lots of pretty flowers. Found an oval worry stone in the ball park meadow, if anyone is missing it.

Beautiful walk with some moderate uphill hiking.

Short and easy hike with very little traffic. If your children are into slugs and snails, this is a great place to come.
Super safe trail for very young hikers as well.

The trail head was easy to find, right off a main road. there was lots of parking. it even had a honey bucket which I really needed at the end. it was very pretty with many streams of water flowing down. I took my three year old and he loved all the bridges and small waterfalls ( that's what he called them). it was a good work out especially with my son in a pack on my back.

Great trail but yes, very steep right away and for most of the trail. We went to the peak, and by the time we were finished the gps said 4.5 miles round trip. I will say the peak was a little anti climactic as there wasn't really a landing place to hang out and enjoy a view, but none the less a great hike, good workout and would recommend.

The trail is easily walkable with the nice path. There are a lot of trails to branch off on to extend your hike. It's very green and beautiful. It is strange when you hike near residential houses.
