Very enjoyable hike. The trail gets a little overgrown in a few spots, but for the most part ver well maintained. Great incline.... no switchbacks. Just in and out trail. The actual overlook isn’t jaw dropping, but very pretty vista views through some tree tops. Picnic table and a couple of benches at the overlook area. We got to the destination by 7:30 on a Sunday and we were one of maybe ten other cars and when we left at 9:30 the lot was completely full along with two overflow areas. New-ish bike trails here, so it appeared that most cars were bikers.

Nice paved path to walk. You can extend your walk to visit Snoqualmie Falls and on your way back, stop in town for coffee, or dinner at one of the restaurants. There is also a great wine bar in town!

5/26/2018 (Saturday) - This small park is not for hiking but for view seeing. It provides a nice view of around 160 degrees to enjoy peak and mountains far and new in a fine afternoon to the direction of east and north. From here we take a slow walk up to the "popular" Stan's Overlook where the view is diminished year by year by the growing trees. The parking lot is more than full because of the coming numerous mountain bikers for the use of the new biking route. The hiking traffic on the old trail remains light on this long weekend Saturday.

Pretty hike! We arrived on an overcast Sundy morning at 7am and the Little Si parking lot was about half full. Only saw 4 people on the way up, probably 100+ on the way down (came back down the standard route). No views for us due to cloud cover.

Upper views are awesome but if you go down the trail and the gate is open then the view is even better.

Thus place is beautiful year round, but if you can make it during spring runoff you'll be treated with a wonderful sight.

5/15/2018 (Tuesday) - The Old Trail's condition is much better than I expected. The path remains solid, smooth and wide enough, no obstacle, no collapse, no downfalls, no mud, no overgrowth, no bug, just steep. The condition may even be better than Mt Washington's. I moved up by the upper part of Boulder Park Loop. It's a little more than 3 miles to the top talus. Then, I had lunch back down to the ridge of the Old Trail to evade the busy hiking traffic on the top and the new trail. Then, I moved down via the new trail and Douglas Fir Trail (also in perfect condition) for my knees' sake, and complete the lower (south) half of the Boulder Park. Very few hikers use the Old Mt Si trail, Douglas Fir Trail, and the Boulder Garden Trail, so these trails provide solitude that is rare on the popular Mount Si and Little Si trails. The time up (3 hr) and down (2 hr) is almost the same as that of the official Mount Si trail.

Good little hike, very short. The viewing area is good for strollers, but DO NOT try to walk the trail with one! It was painful watching people try to do that through the dirt and gravel. Went on the weekend and it was insanely crowded. Took us about 20 minutes to even find a parking lot. The trail down and back was busy, but not overbearing, unfortunately most people were there just to park and cross a bridge to see the falls, so we barely got a glimpse of the water at the bottom because there were too many people.

beautiful & easy trail

I definitely recommend using the lower lot on Fish Hatchery Rd. It is free, there are always spots and you can easily reach the trails for the falls. The path to the upper falls are up hill with a fairly steep grade but much better to do it on the way up to see the top rather than head down and then make the trek back up to your car. It is fairly busy and the trail has plenty of people. My dog loved meeting all the people and other dogs too.

Quick stop on the way to Seattle.

My wife and I hiked to Mount Si with our hiking group. We went up Old Mt. Si Trail and came down the new trail and traversed via Douglas Fir Trail. By taking the new trail down we made it easy for our knees. The weather was mostly sunny. The temperature was 51 F when we started at the trailhead and 43 F at our lunch spot and 66 F when we got back to the trailhead. There was some snow near the summit. The view at our lunch spot on the rocks was pretty good, but Mount Rainier was hidden in clouds.

Not too long. Something you could do with younger kids. A little steep at parts

I did not go down to the falls but the view up top was breathtaking. This is one of the most beautiful falls I’ve seen.

Nice hike, beautiful views..Great for all skill levels. Several trail signs. Not very many people on the trail for a Monday afternoon

The falls were beautiful!! Wasn’t able to hike the trail. Rainey day with a 3 year old in tow.

Minimal snow at the top of mt Si. Beautiful clear day which made for amazing views. We could see Bellevue and downtown Seattle. The old trail is pretty steep, but the reward at the top was worth it! Very few people on the trail which makes it much more appealing than the new mt si trail. A little annoying to park at little si crowded trailhead. We got there around noon on New Year’s Day with a few spots in the over flow lot.

The main Trail was closed down but the views from the main area was great! Wish the Trail was open though.

If you can only go on the weekends but you don’t want the heavy foot traffic, go early, and go when it snows! We took the short trail to the lower boardwalk today in the rain/slush, and the lower section was pretty secluded. Also worth checking out: the river access (just read and obey the posted signs). The trail features lots of nature and historic information on posts—pretty interesting! The falls are beautiful, but I gave it three stars because of the commercialized feel.

Very pleasant out and back. Trail is in great shape, we’ll marked and in the shade. Lots of happy dogs too!

Closer to moderate, IMO - the way back up is all incline, some parts can be a bit slippery when wet. Can be very crowded but still really breathtaking. It wasn't too bad on the weekdays, was a madhouse when we went on a weekend (Niagara falls level of busy)

Great but very overcrowded, for good reason though.

Main reason for not liking this hike to much is because it’s overly crowded by tourists. During summer, parking is difficult to find. There is not much shade provided by trees. Can catch good views of the waterfall from overlooks. Dog-friendly.

Short and nice hike. Kids friendly too.
