Diann & I picked up this hike based on a recommendation from a book ( Winter Hikes in Puget Sound & the Olympic Foothills: Mostly Snow-Free Trails from Lowland Forests to Summit Views , ISBN 1570611491) that said this was a short hike, approximately 0.5 miles round-trip. The hike was nice, with obvious trails to follow and a great helping of old-growth forest. Just before the hike, we drove up through Steven's Pass to introduce the car to it's first bit of snow and below-freezing temperatures. Took us about 2 hours to get out to Deception Falls from Seattle, and only about an hour of slow walking through the half-mile looking at the sights.
