This is a good short trail with interesting views into the rainforest. Doable with children. Good also at hot days as mostly in shadow.

We walked this trail with another couple, and all four of us enjoyed it. We parked in the parking lot for the ranger station, next to the Lodge. The trail was very walkable, not crowded, and the scenery was beautiful. Highly recommend.

We only saw a herd of elk over there; not much other than that. We didn't see any bear nor did we hear anything about bear over there. It was nice and peaceful while we were there. I hope this help and enjoy your trip.
