Nice walk

Went with my kids and parents. Nice easy walk through a beautiful forest. Great for elderly who still want to get out, but need flat easy surfaces for walking.

This is a really popular attraction. We highly recommend it but it can be hard to find parking. Usually if you arrive before 10 am it isn't too bad. Of course 4th of July weekend is going to be a zoo all day every day.

Pleasant, easy, and flat walk through the evergreens to a nice waterfall full of classic glacier-blue water. Recommended for the off-season or very early mornings, as this trail's short length, ease of access, and proximity to lodging and camping will make it quite crowded during peak times. PS. It really is worth a visit, despite the negative reviews from a... More

Even considering that you can't currently do the entire loop(it's an out and back until construction is finished) it's just lovely, mossy. Very easy walk on a boardwalk.

This trail is easy for all walkers and hikers. Many people go further than the approximate mile walk where the boardwalk ends, on to Hidden Lake and it is rated moderate. For handicap or non-hikers the boardwalk offers great views of the plant life and the creek running alongside most of its' length. This is a walk to put on... More

This walk on a boardwalk was easy and enchanting. Their is another hike connected to this that is rated the best in the park. There was a point when I walked around a corner and it was as beautiful as a fantasy. And the smell, cedar.

Informative stop and walk...not physically difficult, and itneresting to get some infomration on the different trees and their age. Makes one appreciate them more.

While at the beginning of this trail, my husband said, "this is your kind of trail." It was. There is something spiritual about being in the middle of the 500 year old cedars, ferns, and waterfalls. Since it is a special place for the native Indian tribes who still live in the area, the entire trail is on boardwalks.

If you can find a place to park near the trail, it's a family-friendly paved path through the woods. There are some pretty views of the creek. The restrooms along the trail have flush toilets.

This trail goes through a wooded area and is suitable for just about everyone, as it is flat and mostly on a boardwalk. It leads to a bridge that overlooks a creek and beautiful waterfall.
