You'd never know you were within Seattle, great place to get lost for awhile.

Great but crowded place for a walk or a run.

Great scenery, rain or shine... for those who want to swim in the lake...On top the lake (boat, kayak, etc.) cool, in it, oh my no.

Honestly best enjoyed on a bike and with some patience.

Biking douche bag's recreating a Tour De France time trial , Passive aggressive's unleashing their pent up anger, neck beard's of sweat & stale IPA's, yup it's the Burke.

Beautiful and peaceful. It's Seattle though and the homeless will at times camp out here but in my many, many strolls through here, I've never had an issue with them.

A great place to take in the water & breath taking views. Bring a blanket and stretch out on the grassy over looks. Nice pieces of history to check out here as well. Sunset viewing, p e r f e c t.

Just like all the other's have mentioned.... great views, great wildlife, very enjoyable hike....could be a bit slick in spots.

Nice trail, pretty easy to navigate... I'd imagine it might be a bit tricky in the rain. Overall, easy & enjoyable trail.

Great views from atop the bridge, well worth your time to stretch your legs and talk a walk. North side pull out parking is free, every where else is $10 for the day $30 for the year. Free bath rooms at South end parking lot.

One of the most beautiful falls in Washington!! Pictures do NOT do this Falls justice!! Go just past Otter Falls about 3 minutes and see Big Creek Falls as well!! Amazing!!

Great hike with a challenging beginning. However, he cautioned.. it is a dangerous trail right now. About 3/4 up, the trail gets lost in the heavy snow. I tracked on and found myself amidst large snow slides. Wait to hike this!

Beautiful trail and convenient to city living. But it’s not all easy if you have knee problems.

Loved the falls in the spring the water is running. Great time awesome Falls.

Good hike! Didn’t quite make it to the top because of the snow over the bolder field. Lots of people we passed stopped where we did as well although one couple in their 50’s somehow got to the top, they said. We parked it and had our lunch in the bolder fields with a great view of Rainier. I was happy to have my micro spikes although many we passed had tennis shoes (crazy!). I had really wet feet coming down even though my boots are waterproof. But didn’t prevent the snow coming into my boots from the top when I slipped waist deep in the bolder fields. I really would love to return when the snow is gone and enjoy the ridge and maybe the trek down to the lake! Altogether a fun hike with friends on a beautiful sunny day! Afternote/epiphany: at the bolder field, you are supposed to kind of turn back sharp and wind up and back -not straight across it. Stupid that I didn’t even peek at the map to see the direction. I just kind of listened to everyone and how they didn’t go over the bolders with the melting snow. The trail doesn’t even go straight across that area. I think we would have made it, had I been paying closer attention to the map. Trail is covered in snow at that part though so you have to make your own.

Snow is starting to dissipate. Recommend wearing hiking shoes for now, saw many bust it on the snow that had tennis shoes on.

Good trail that is conveniently located for a last minute afternoon walk. Easy trail.

I have done this trail before and loved it as much today as I did the first time. Although a Weds, the trail was busy with people and furry four-legged friends. An incredibly beautiful day. It's a great running trail for those who would like the challenge. One woman had run the trail 18 times today!

Lovely. So nearby, while still offering a peaceful, forest get-away feeling.

Beautiful trail, but there can be very creepy people around.

went late April. had to park 3miles from trailhead. after post holing between knee and waste depth for several hours we turned back. bring snowshoes probably for another few months. views on road were still nice

Can’t truly review this as trail is closed. Blocked off at entrance. I’m assuming because of the drowning out there not too long ago. Sign just says “closed until further notice”

The temperature was perfect and many flowers were in bloom. The walking is nice on the wide road/trails. We saw many birds and even a couple of horned lizards. The vistas are great. Bring lots of water and wear a hat(:

Very beautiful hike. Great for camping with family and also dog friendly.

Quick, easy hike with rewarding views at the top! The hike down is the hardest part due to steepness coupled with loose rock in certain sections.

Good hike, but concerned for the safety of my car. Saw remnants of broken windshield glass in the parking lot.. too bad we have to worry about creeps

Nice little walk around a lake. Feels safe, good place to get your steps in. And it's a park so bring a picnic!

THIS IS NOT A TRAIL. It's a freeway. You'd be daft to walk along here.

Still icy 3/29/18 from the waterfall to the top. Overall nice trail and close to home.

Road in and trail in great condition. Keep your eyes and ears open for rattlesnakes we saw one on the trail that we had to go around.

Road in and trail is in great condition, falls could use some clean up of trash. Saw a rattlesnake on trail.
