Always a nice relaxing walk.

lots of trees fallen and trail is not very well marked. Turned around half way because I was worried I was lost. lots of side trails which make is confusing as to which one is the right way to go. Lucky I had WiFi to show me where I was. kids liked it though and it's easy to walk but over all not the best trail.

One of the best secrets in Tacoma. Hard to believe it is so close to the city. We felt like we were way out. My only regret is that we did not come here when our kids were little.... If you do not mind getting your feet wet you can travel right through the stream.. even swim. If you have kids 2-12 you need to go!

It's a good trail for a quick hike close by if you don't want the efforts of a long drive or anything strenuous. However, there is A LOT of broken glass on the trail in a few stretches, mostly small shards that I assume are pieces of beer and liquor bottles. I checked my dogs paws a few times on the trail and again when I got home and she was ok, but be careful with 4 legged friends.

Paved. Easy to follow loop. Beautiful scenery.
