Great first hike! We did the short one, not to chena hot springs. Went with our dog, only a few run ins with other dogs but no problems. Steep toward the rocks might be a concern for families but was fine for us (in our 20s). Overall it was great!

It was an excellent day hike with our dogs. The trail is moderately rugged with an abundance of tree roots and rocks to navigate. As two middle aged women who are somewhat active, but not regular hikers, trekking poles would have been helpful for the steep areas which is about two thirds of the hike. I recommend heading to the right when the trail splits ascending the boardwalk leading straight to the top. This is the steepest portion of the Angel Rocks Trail loop. The views from the upper areas are dramatic. It's a great place to take a break, have some snacks, take pictures and explore the rocks. Beginning the decent on the north side, the trail is not as steep, which we preferred for walking downhill. We found a profusion of berries along the path near the top and stopped to do some picking. The remainder of the trial leads through the woods along a small slough. Remember the mosquito repellent, it will be necessary in this area for sure. Our trek was completed in about 4 hours which allowed for plenty of time to stop enjoy the surroundings. We look forward to hiking it again.
Footnote: There is a drop box at the parking area entrance requesting a $5 fee per car. There were no envelopes in the holder. Have some paper or envelope and pen handy to write your license plate number on to deposit with money.
