    We only did the Kings Mountain trail (we did not do the loop). The trail is very steep but well maintained. The trail is well marked and easy to follow. It was a good workout. The view from the top is not great--If you want a better view I would recommend the Saddle Mountain hike.

    Beautiful! Not trail for the casual hiker. I went up Elk Creek along the old logging road, about half-way over to King's Mtn and then down Elk Mtn.

    I am a day hiker and this was a great trail--maintained and well marked. I hiked to the summit of Kings Mountain and returned. I did not hike to Elk Mountain. The trail does climb so don't be surprised. The day I went it was somewhat cloudy so could not see all the way to the ocean but good views, none the less. Lots of wild flowers still blooming at the summit. I would recommend but it is not for people bothered by the steepness.

    Maybe I am just out of shape, but both myself and the guy I was riding with thought this was definately a more demanding trail thatn listed. The ride back is a long uphill, and a tough way to end a really nice ride.

    We went on Sunday, 8/21. By going I-5 to Woodland and picking up 503, we were able to cut at least 1/2 hour off the trip because of all the stoplights through Battleground. (I think it's more miles though). Plus it was much prettier along the Lewis River highway.

    It's a long downhill - very fun, but makes it a long haul out. Very beautiful ride and the falls were great. There were horses - so be careful to watch for others on the trail. There were 2 different ratings of this trail: Rapp's rating was 'Easy' and the other one was 'Moderate'. I would say that this is moderate - some technical aspects but also strenuous due to length and long uphill.
