From Hoodsport, 14 miles north on U.S. 101 to Forest Service Road 25. Turn left and drive 12 miles to the Putvin Historical Marker. The trail is on the right side of the road.
It's a hard climb but the reward is worth it I recommend a life straw or a water filter of some sort to enjoy the stream water
A friend of mine and myself were camping on the stream near the trail head and decided to hike it the next day and to our surprise it was a fantastic hike! Extremely steep in sections! Absolutely beautiful views once out of the trees.
