Explore the most popular nature trips trails near Snohomish with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

A nice scenic trail however after the first 10 min. the trail seems to end in an area where it looks like dead trees are being processed for firewood. Using the GPS, I was able to see where the training continued, though becoming significantly narrower. After a few minutes of hiking this trail, I became worried for my safety and headed back. The description did say it is lightly traffics, but I saw no one during my 30min. hike save the 3 cars in the lot that headed the other direction to the river for fishing. I would like to try this trail again as it was very scenic. Perhaps midday there would be a few additional hikers.

Awesome fall day with my pup and my babe! We almost missed the falls until my dog ran up the side trail! It's was stunning and the cave, so cool! We played around at the base for a bit then continued up to the top of the falls, and then even further till we found an rad little campsite! It was a perfect little short round trip, just what we were looking for! :)

Pretty flat. Lots of great scenery. Crowded during summer . But very enjoyable.

we had fun! actually took my cat lol. falls were beauitful, we went to the top of the first falls, it was a short hike but thats the only part id considerate moderate, pretty much flat to the bottom of the waterfall. cave was beautiful!

Beautiful falls, easy hike but enough so you feel the work a little. Lovely day

This was barely a trail it was so overgrown. It was almost impassable. And at the logjam there was no indication as to how to get by, we just turned around. Too bad was looking forward to reaching the river

I really enjoyed this trail. it is definitely kid friendly but keep a hold to them when you're on the dry river bed. some dog crap on the trail, that was disappointing. trail is well kept and not much for garbage. parking is okay but not large and you do not need a pass or pay. All and all it was a nice peaceful walk.

A great paved trail for walking/running, biking, skating, and horseback riding. The trail runs along beautiful rivers, meadows, forests, and passed great little downtowns. The trail is relatively flat on the portion I biked- from Snohomish to north of Lake Stevens. There were also 2 or 3 stops with facilities (restrooms, water fountains). It was a great ride and I plan to be back often.

beautiful view point this is one of my favorite little hikes nice and quick if u have plans after

Great adventure with the kids (7, 14, 16). 2 mile hike was fun going in. We enjoyed all the things people left to show us the way. Waterfall was amazing. We had fun splashing around the pool of water for a good hour before heading back. Beautiful! Enjoyed by all.

The trail leading down to the river was relatively easy, but very overgrown with blackberries in spots. We had to beat our way through with sticks to avoid getting poked and scratched! There are also a couple of areas in which you'll need to be prepared to climb over a log jam or two. At first glance it looks impossible, but once you start climbing over the logs you can find your footing.

In the end I'd say it was pretty worth it considering that there is a really nice sand bar and swimming hole at the finish line. You just need to be sure to walk far enough North along the river bar in order to get to it.

Enjoy ;-D!

The destination is the only good thing about this trail. But if it’s busy, it’s not going to be good. The swimming hole is very small with room for 4-6 people. So if you’re the only people there, awesome! Getting there.... you’re walking down a gravel road 90% of the time. I wouldn’t really call this a hike.

Super buggy!

This is a nice mix of open areas and woodsy areas. The amazing part was that we walked mid-morning on a summer Saturday and only saw two other people on the trail. Love these trail systems - so many ways to lengthen and shorten your hike.

Great little hike/walk! Mostly gravel road walking, but as mentioned there is one steep part where you go down a little ravine where a creek/river has dried up. I went with my mom, wore my 1 year old and my 4 year old who walked the whole way, slowly, but did indeed finish the whole walk. The waterfall is beautiful, great place to be on a hot summer day! If I was to do this hike again I would definitely make sure to bring bug spray of some sorts. There was a mix of flies and misquotes — the flies were the pretty bad, and they bite! Other than that a great, kid-friendly adventure.

First, won’t call it a hike so much as a walk...

The trail is rated as Moderate, probably because of the tricky directions. The walk is not hard though. Until you get to the stream, the directions are good but the access road continues, so STOP and turn right into the trees at the stream!!

Then the path to the base of the waterfall is easy to miss (you essentially need to start hopping rocks along the side of the stream). There’s a cave at the base of the waterfall, so that was cool.

The path to the TOP of the waterfall, however, was easy to spot, starting across the stream; but be warned: it’s a quick but very short ~200’ elevation climb, and getting to the top of the waterfall involves climbing over logs on a steep downward slope.

Most of the trail is just a flat gravel access road, so probably won’t do it again, but it was worth the easy adventure with some friends.

Awesome hike! Took my 4 year old with. The trail up to the top of the waterfall is mildly difficult and quite steep, at the top you can sit by the falls but you don’t get a great view. At the bottom of the waterfall is absolutely beautiful. A small pool of water and a cool little hole in the side of the mountain. The trail is very well marked with painted orange arrows on the trees. A good hike just be prepared to carry your little ones all the way back to the car lol

The first part of the trail is an old gravel road then the trail turns into more like pine needles and dirt. I was the only one there in the tiny parking lot and trail. I was running and missed the trail to the right for the "falls." I couldn't see the falls once there due to the overgrowth of plants and trees. I ran 4 miles total out and back but could have kept going on the old closed logging roads. It was a pretty and quiet run but I probably won't do it again.

Not really a hike, more of a nature walk, very level ground. Also trail is closed part way down, with no warning prior to starting the trail.

This was a decent trail. Not my favorite but it was a good work out. The loop we ended up taking to the viewpoint was 4.4 miles and our kids (youngest being 5) had no problem doing it. The hardest part was the little scurry up to the viewpoint. I would definitely suggest printing a map to bring with you unless your phone has good gps with the trails marked. There were so many different trails that we would have gotten really turned around if we didn’t have the map that we printed. The turn to the viewpoint wasn’t marked either. There were LOTS of huckleberries along this trail and the kids saw a buck not too far away from them too. This is a good trail if you are looking for an easy outing.

Water is high so there is no beach to speak of right now. River trail is also quite overgrown (closing in from sides). That time of year! Nettles and mosquitos as you get close to water. Climb was greater than I expected but dogs and I enjoyed it! Will return for the lake loop and the river later in the summer.

Went with 3 girls and a friend. Was a easy hike getting to the falls, but then decided we wanted to go up to the top of the waterfall and that was a elevated, workout hike.

Took my dog, ‘trail’ access from the access road has a huge burm with logs stacked, deep and steep ditch on the other side blocking the trail. Little water coming over the falls. Looked like someone living in the woods there with dogs off-leash. Once past the obstacles it is a very nice hike.

This was a great hike to start out the season with! Went with two teens and our dog. Perfect weather. Water flow at the falls was good.

Probably fine if you live close by. But, really just a network of wooded trails. Supposedly the Lake has dried up. Also, you’re sharing the trail with horses and bicycles as well.

great hike! I would recommend going earlier though, we started at about 9am and maybe ran into 3 people but towards the end it was very heavily trafficked.

Very nice hike, mostly gravel. I would also highly recommend bug spray.

Starts off on gravel. You can take a trail to the top of the falls as well.

Easy. Pretty. Tranquil.

Great little hike. Mostly on a gravel road. Then you get off the gravel and the falls are right there! We did notice a trail that goes up to the top of the falls for next time! Round trip with exploring was 4 miles.
