The lush, moss-laden forest is reminiscent of the rainforests of the Olympic Peninsula, for good reason. The western foothills of the Cascades can get twice as much annual rainfall as the Puget Sound area, making the low forests of these regions wet, mossy, and rich in plant (and animal) life—in short, a rainforest. The loop trail here is short, but scenic, perfect for lateseason hikes when the days are short and hiking time is at a premium.

A perfect dog hike with a softly cushioned, well-maintained trail, sturdy log bridges, lots of shade in a beautiful forested river valley, ample water, and a cool lake to swim in at the end of the 7 mile hike. The grade is gentle, with total elev. gain of only 1600 feet, and the trail is not heavily used. This Wednesday, including ourselves, we counted 11 people, 9 dogs, and 2 horses out enjoying the trail. No need to carry extra water for your dog on this hike. Think about taking this trail with your pooch the next time there's a hot summer day.

very nice lake, good fishing not many people. you are not allowed to park overnight at the lower entrance so you have to drive to coral pass and come in from the top.
