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!

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.

Easy and simple. Good for families.

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!

beautiful trail that carries you through diverse scenery. very well marked, and lots of opportunities to shorten or lengthen your jaunt as you go. will definitely visit again!

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.

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

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!

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!

We loved this trail and hiked to the falls. It was beautiful and would definitely go again. We hiked a total of about 8 miles.

Simply beautiful!!! Bring microspikes.

This hike wasn’t tough. It’s easy not moderate. Signage was really bad, went the wrong way twice. Nice stroll though. Wear boots...there is a good amount of mud and 2-3 washed out sections.

We did the Bresemann Forest Trail almost across the street and decided to add this one afterwards as it was so close. We are so glad we did! It’s funny that we have never ever been here before as it’s only 15 minutes away.... This park is absolutely beautiful and well taken care of. We enjoyed walking the paved trail at the parking entrance. So when you enter, park in the first parking lot on the right. First you stroll around the pond and then you make your way to the lake, which is beautiful. We saw lots of people fishing and enjoying their day like we were. Being a Sunday, it was not crowded at all, like I would have expected it to be. Lots of bathroom facilities (although limited this time of year). At the boat launch area you can rent boats, canoes and such! That is cool! Had we of come earlier we would have taking a row boat out. This is a great park for strollers and elders, really no inclines at all, but just a very pleasurable stroll. This was free, did not see any area where they would take money. Maybe in the summer months or deeper into the park itself? Like I said, as soon as we entered, we parked at the first parking area on the right.

Quick and easy hike without hardly any elevation change. The falls at the end of this trail are pretty. It was moderately trafficked in the middle of the day. There are a couple spots where you need to cross the water, so be prepared for that.

This is a great little hike on an unpaved trail. It was really beautiful, especially along side the creek. Parking lot is at Sprinker, we actually passed by it, so keep a look out as the entrance is right next to the big parking lot near the woods. We did this trail on a Sunday and it was not busy at all. There is another walking area almost right across the street at Spanaway Lake, it is a paved trail and since we were there we decided to do both. So glad we did bc I had no idea that Spanaway Lake was that big! Super fun day and do both trails!

No Tresspassing sign just off the road, trail is no longer open to the public.

The road is closed trying to get to Heart O' The Hills trailhead, you have to walk passed the closed gate about 200 yards to get to the start of the trailhead which starts at E loop. The trail is so tranquil, we were the only ones on the it. Minimal snow patches, wet and soggy trail. Lots of roots through trail. Few trees down to hurtle over.

Beautiful Views, trafficked, good season opener.

It’s a long hike but the lake is beautiful. The water reflects the surroundings and it looks like a mirror.
