Very peaceful little area with huge trees on an island. Well-marked and with a raised path to prevent further damage to the ground cover. Probably 10-15 minutes from the trailhead.

If you visit Mount Rainier, make sure this trail is one of the trails you hike. It’s an easier trail but it’s still mostly dirt paths so make sure to wear the proper hiking attire. I went during the Fall and the trees were just...More

This was a beautiful loop trail complete with a unique bridge that goes over the creek. Well worth the trip into the woods!
