Beautiful trails! Saw a family of seals swim off the shore, enjoyed the sunshine, met some awesome folks (and pups) throughout the day. Easy parking, and you can take the bus there too!

What an amazing view!!!!! It was a great hike to the top!

Not bad, just okay.

Our favorite trail in seattle. Nice lake. It gets busy specially on weekends. Finding a parking spot is very challenging. Super dog friendly. Most of the dogs are off leash. Gets really muddy so wear proper footwear. Also you can hangout and chill on the cliffs. It has a few good spots.

As those have already stated, the trail head is a mile and a half from the visitor's center where you start when snowshoeing. It wasn't overly crowded. Stunning views on a beautiful day. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

This is a great hike to camp 1/2 way at Roaring Winds. Three spots available. End up at Deer Park for camping, relaxation and wait to get picked up.

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.

I loved the hike and the view but it was very busy today and it's Monday

Did this in August with some friends and it was so much fun! Definitely recommend starting early because it took us a while, especially since we did bridal falls first. This trail is hard with tons of switch backs and a lot of uphill stairs. If you are somewhat fit, you will be fine. The lake is nice to swim in during the summer time as it is completely clear and cold. Reminds me of Lake Twenty-Two but you can’t walk around it on a board walk :) Bring lots of water and snacks because there are a ton of places to take a break and look out at the landscape. Highly recommend for those of you who want a challenge!

Great hike! The views are amazing and it is fun to watch the paraglider.

The trail is not paved but easy for children. It’s a great learning experience for all ages since there’s a wonderful nature center with fun activities on the site. There’s a really nice play area too for the kids to play on. Great place for educational learning about ponds, watershed animals, water cycle and nature outdoors.

Such a beautiful trail my girls loved wadding in the creek and it’s an easy path for toddlers. We really enjoyed this trail. There’s also some big boulders for climbing with the older kids near the entrance. A great place for a family day outdoors.

Sooo many amazing views and very easy for kids to walk.

Such a beautiful hike! My friend and I love it!

Nice easy trail, relaxing with great views.

Short easy trail. Good for kids and strollers.

Love this trail I do it often. Lots of people come here but it’s still pretty peaceful with great views.

Easy hike definitely not moderate. Only downside was it was not well marked but we didn't have too much issue navigating. Muddy. Pretty falls.

Awesome place to visit. The moss is literally covering almost all you see and the dense colors of green are incredible! Highly recommend visiting

Beautiful hike. We can hear the pleasant sound of water falls all along the hike. You’ll see lower falls, middle falls, and upper falls. We went up to middle falls and Valley overlook. There’s also a bike path all the way to upper falls.

Wouldn’t consider this a ‘hiking’ trail where one ‘hikes’. But it’s a pretty good walk.

Hiked it last year in the summer

Sunrise hike here is amazing!

Gorgeous views, easy to moderate hike.

Visited last summer and the views were UNREAL. We did the loop in a clockwise direction, heading left at the trailhead; if you hike this way, then all of the elevation gain is done in the first mile or so and there are views the rest of the hike as well as a downward slope the rest of the 6 or so miles. Conversely, if you hike the loop counterclockwise, there will be a lot more uphill hiking as the elevation gain is spread out over the miles.

The falls are pretty, the hike is fairly level/flat and follows gravel roads most of the way. Easy and not too long!

A short, relatively easy hike with a big payoff! The views were better than we expected and Rattlesnake Lake was turquoise green from the top. Took us about 45 minutes up. Trail was in great condition, and there are pit toilets at the park below. The only negative part of the hike for me was the trial etiquette. Lots of music blaring (instead of enjoying the sounds of nature), litter on the trail, and loud hikers. People goof off at the top near the cliffs.
