Good trail that leads to the beach. Quiet and great for dogs..

Nice family trail, not long trail. Steps to beach though but if you take your time it’s fine. If nice weather I suggest bring sandals, specially for little ones, as there is creek they will want to walk in at the beach, just deep enough for their toes... my wife didn’t have them so she had to leap frog over water spots to walk the beach... even bring sack lunch if you have kids and it’s nice out, will wish you had so you can sit at the beach and let them play

April water show for sure. Easy walk, fun bridges and lots of beautiful old growth trees.

this a great trail, but today there was heavy snow trying to drive there, the last mile or two and too much snow on trail to hike in regular shoes..will go again later this spring..use caution driving in

It’s a nice walk, slippery in some spots but it only takes like 30 mins to get around the lake.
There’s a couple camping spots but it’s really not good for that.
We fished in it also and never caught anything. Iv lived in this area my whole life and I don’t know that anyone has ever caught fish in it.

The trail was short, but the drive was long. Spider lake is a spectacular view but unfortunately I picked up eery vibes from the glass-like stillness and once you see one part of it, the rest of the hike is a bore...

A very pleasant, short loop. The spur trail leads to the beach, which on a sunny day is really very beautiful. The road that leads to the State Park, East Yates Rd, is an unpaved, rough surface road with pebbles and rocks, but it is easily driveable for any type of car. Discover Pass is required to park at the trailhead.

The app clocked this hike as 1.5k. It says easy but those of you just starting out, it's steep terrain down to water and if you take the loop back to the parking area, it's a gradual incline with brief spots of difficulty.

Pretty short hike. Gets steep when you are going to the water but quick and easy hike.

Nice walk. Good views. Convenient location to town.

Easy trail, but the road to get there is very pot-hole ridden. Pretty lake, thank goodness for this app's GPS, no trail head sign, but gps led me right to it. Wear pants, trail a bit overgrown.

it's was a very easy and fun hike

Very quiet and clean trails and beach access. My toddlers enjoyed the hike very much. Bring your own trash bag to dispose of waste. No bins in sight. Which is okay.

Lovely woods

Besides the fact that it doesn't give you a clear idea of how far to the water when on the trail it was great. Is pretty steep in a few spots and some stairs are coming apart. But over all nice quite place to hike. Enjoyed it very much.

Harstine island state park is a fun short trail in the local area. Leads down to the shore along the puget sound!

A nice and quick little hike, although it takes a bit to get there on the forest roads. The roads are paved for most of the way. Only passed one other couple hiking. The only drawback was that there were quite a few shotgun shells along the trail.

My first trail after deciding to get into hiking/backpacking as a hobby. It was a nice little trail, although there are not many sites to hang out by the lake. A few places had heavy debris/trees over the trail, but it was still a nice little hike. I would like to go back when it is warmer to swim some time.

Nice mountain lake tucked in tall firs. Not too many picnic spots, especially if others are down there, but we found it worth the walk and found a spot to have a snack while the dog went swimming. There are several trails down, I remember taking a different route on one of our previous visits. Downhill there, uphill back.
