This walk was a nice easy stroll in beautiful woods. There is nothing like enjoying God's creation to lift our spirits.

A nice parking lot, a handy water fountain, and some picnic tables are on the premises. The trail back into the creek cove is well maintained. The Western Red Cedars, Western Hemlocks, and the Douglas Firs are really neat to see. An exciting cable suspension bridge over a pristine rushing creek (it may be a small river, not sure). Some...

We have been here several times and it's always great walking along the river, then over the bridge and among the giant trees. It's especially great on an unusual hot day in the park.

It doesn't take too much time to walk this short, relatively flat 1.5 mile round-trip trail. Along the way, make sure to stop and read the signs which will help you to identify the various trees and plants based on their characteristics.

My husband and I walked this 1 mile loop thru the beautiful old cedar hemlock and fir forest and enjoyed walking across the suspension bridge over the river. Don't miss it!

This hike is on a well maintained trail that winds through an old growth forest. The trees are massive here standing at over 200 feet tall. There are many trees that have fallen due to wind and as you walk along them you cannot believe how massive they are. There are some trees over 1000 years old. That is they... More

My wife and I did this short 1.5 mile hike at first light and we really enjoyed it. Loved being in the old growth forest as everything was waking up.

This is a beautiful walk through an old growth forest. There are very large trees and lots of photo opportunities. I especially enjoyed the swinging bridge, but my wife didn't !!!

Nothing to dislike about walking through Mt. Rainier. You will marvel at the size and height of these trees. Crossing a swinging bridge to get to this part of the park is a lot of fun.
