Mud Mountain Rim Trail

This was our first hike of the year and just wanted to get out and get some fresh air. We had never been on this hike and didn't expect anyone else to be there as it was forecast to rain continuously all day (which it did). Much to our surprise there were six other groups that were there throughout the hike as well. The continuous rain and wind was not an issue as they were mitigated by the woods of the majority of the hike. I had read from past reviews that some people found the trail confusing from the lack of markers along it. Fortunately for us, one of the parties that arrived at the same time as us were veterans of the hike and filled us in on the particulars of the trail. The trailhead we used started just outside the official entrance to the Mud Mountain Dam park area (the actual park was closed with its road gates locked) and had an unofficial/unmarked parking area to the left that would hold half a dozen cars. This hike started with an immediate decision to go right or left. To the right the trail parallels the park entrance road and leads to a view of the dam which isn't very far (we were told and didn't go that way) . To the left is the actual rim trail. For all the direction decisions that must be made, staying to the right works well. After about .5 miles you come to an intersection of sorts and veer right onto a road like section. A trail marker on the left points you to a trail through the woods while staying on the road like section will take you to the same endpoint. At this endpoint a yellow outhouse can be seen and the continuation of the trail is behind it. After following this section of the trail (passing a bench with a view of a stream coming down the other side of the valley wall) you will arrive at an intersection of roads. Following the road to the right will take you down to the river. This was an easy and enjoyable hike to just be outdoors and get some exercise.

Long but beautiful hike. Made it to the peak and got to see some white goats. The view from the top was worth the hike. I might consider backpacking if I do this one again and spend more time hiking down to the lake.

saw tons of horses towards the end of our hike while exploring this trail today. got on the trail at about 930 am and didn't see anyone until we headed back to the car at 1200. they're were a few routes on this trail so we weren't sure where the real trail was. nice and easy and peaceful hike. we did a few lips and went down each path but ultimately found the trail. never saw the dam though.

the bottom trails are great, flat and lead to views of the river. the top trail is pretty overgrown from people not using it, it's a little more intense and the trail ends with down trees. you either have to go back or make your own trail to get to the road.

Noble Knob Trail

10/05/2014 (Sunday) - I updated the Trail Info and map location. Perhaps there is another Noble Knob trail on Hwy 410 over the pass, but this hike is on the Enumclaw side. There appear to be a couple of ways to access Noble Knob from Hwy 410, but it would make for a much longer hike. We took Corral Pass Rd just south of the Alta Crystal Resort. This becomes the 6.4 mile, very crappy forest road to the trail head. There's a sign at the beginning stating that the road is for experienced mountain drivers only. If you aren't experienced when you start, you will be by the time you finish...

There's a nice parking area at the top for Corral Pass with picnic tables, camp sites and a privy. The Noble Knob trail head is up the road from here with it's own parking and picnic table. Don't be fooled by the info sign at a trail head across from the parking area. I'm not sure where this goes. Walk to the picnic table and the trail starts there. We only saw a few other groups along the way because we started late in the day. Two mountain bikers were also up there. It looks like a great location for that. There are only a couple of stretches that will get you out of breath. For the most part it is a moderate hike. The views from the top are amazing. We also say a family of mt goats north of the knob about 100 yards away. Views of Mt Rainier are going to be best in the AM. We had the sun in our face looking in that direction, but that mountain is beautiful from any angle at any time. There's one trick part of the trail to note. At one point there's a sharp hairpin turn with a sign at the apex but no mention of the Noble Knob trail. You need to take the unmarked trail going north. I'll post a photo for reference.

Hiked this with a 2 year old, a 5 year old, and a 1 year old Saint Bernard. It was a really easy hike, perfect for the kids. After the shirt hike, we stopped off at the beach front for the lake and let our saint take a quick dip to cool off. Great little hike for a young family.
One downside though: parking was $10 (or $30 for a "discovery pass"). A little steep for a 2+ hour trek.

It was very pretty, more of a walk. It would be good for kids.

Mt Peak Back side trail

Pretty much a gravel road the whole way til it intersects the north side trail. With the elevation gradually increasing instead of stepping over roots and such, it would be better for your knees (if you already have problems) to this south side then the north side. Its still a good workout either way so have fun.
