We were looking something relatively close to Seattle to take advantage of the forecasted good weather. We did this hike almost 5 years ago so it was time to re-visit it. Definitely a lot more signage this time around and the the trails were in excellent shape given that they are open to hikers, bikers, horses and motorcycles. The clear cut section just below the Vista Trail provides excellent views of the Olympics -- we will have to return in the winter. We hiked the Gold Creek trail to the junction with the Vista trail. Then we backtracked to the Beaver Pond trail and took the Plummer trail back to the Gold Creek trail. Just under 6 miles total. Capped off with a stop at Silver City Brewery for some after hike refreshments. Views toward Seattle were OK but the views of the Olympics were great. Would be great to take this hike again once there is more snow on the Olympics. Parking lot was pretty crowded but the trails did not feel too crowded.
