GREAT hike and such a payoff at the top!

Went on this hike in a little bit of a drizzle and although the trails are a little hard to figure out from the signs. A little common sense and it’s pretty easy to navigate. There are lots of nice creek areas and little bridges and a beautiful fern forest. It was really nice for beginner hikers because it was not too long and although there were inclines it wasn’t excessive but it did get my heart rate up! I wish I had a nice trail like this close to me.

Beautiful forest with an easy, wide outer loop and interior trails that are more hilly and gnarly. There were lots of people walking dogs on the outer loop on a sunny day but only saw one other person on the inner trails

Very nice hike, though most of it is on a gravel road. You’ll walk on the road until you see a big clearing and a cement square structure. Take a left there at the fork. You will find a rock painted with “falls” and an arrow to the trail. Once on that trail you have a few options. Lower falls or upper falls.
You can even walk past the painted rock instead of turning and go down to the train tracks and the bridge as well. Love this spot.

Amazing sight, I went around 7 and pretty much had the park to myself.

The hike isn't too bad until the last mile. The last mile killed me, haha. There was a bit of snow at the end and spikes help but you don't NEED them. I would definitely suggest going pretty early though because it gets pretty crowded later in the day.

I did this hike today, but I didn't follow the map. I followed a different route I found elsewhere and I recommend it! Go past where this map has you turn left off hwy 8 and turn left at the next turn instead. It winds up to Labyrinth Falls, which was like a tiny Lava Canyon.
Then keep following the trail up past the falls. When you come to a fence, keep left up the hill. Follow the trail up and around several view points and groups of oaks. Turn left when you come to the cross roads. Follow the Old Farm Road back down the hill. The next time you come to a fence, go right and up the hill to the top of Coyote Wall, then back down and through the fence.
Follow the Little Maui Trail back down to hwy 8. It has some more cool waterfalls.

STEEP.
But worth it! My legs killed by the end of this one! No water on the trail, make sure to bring plenty.

Nice cool day for a brisk walk

Quick hike with a little bit of everything. Definitely want to return in summer to see how it changes

Great trail with beautiful view. Easy but was a bit icy in January.

it was so amazing, the weather couldn't have been better, it was in the snow, got to go backpacking, so great

Took this hike with my 4 and 7-year-old as their first snowshoe hike. They loved it! We didn’t really need snowshoes when we went (mid-December) as the trail was packed down good but they still loved it. The trail is even better on a clear day. The fog ceiling was very low and we couldn’t see much, at the end of the hike we made it back to the frontside of the pond and the fog had lifted. We loved this hike!

I've hiked this many times. love the challenge and the ability to do the connecting trails. I also like the diversity of users, horse riders, bikers, dog walkers, hikers w/wo kids etc.
My husband and I have often hiked it twice in one weekend because it is so convenient to get to and is not crowded.

We hiked this amazing spot today. It is beautiful and worth the hike. You can do a short hike if you turn right after the sign at the beginning. We didn’t know of the shorter hike until we accidentally walked that way. Gorgeous gorgeous hike. A must!

Excellent, paved, flat, level path with beautiful views.

Was a beautiful hike we will be going again

Hiked Packwood Lake today. 9 miles RT. 1.5hr each way using the upper trail and started at 11am. This is the earliest in the year I've ever hiked it. The parking lot was empty. 3 Cars counting mine. The weather was excellent, sunny and no snow at trailhead. The temperature was in the high 40's and low 50's. Perfect. I ran into snow about 2 miles from the lake and spotty in the beginning. It was steady snow around 1.5 miles from the lake and oddly enough...the last 1/8 mile was virtually snow free. The snow was about 1-2 feet deep and well tracked. Pretty crunchy so you didn't sink or get too wet. Beautiful though. No snow at the lake but a thin layer of ice over top that made beautiful breaking sounds with the wind. One the best times to go. I had the lake to myself and easy travel even in the snow. It's still early. Not sure the amount of snow after this weekend. Snow or not...a must do.
