Easy hike down to the beach. Once on the beach you can choose how far you want to hike to the stacks. Foggy in the evening when I was there

The only question is, are your ankles ready. The climb is steady and ever manageable, with the occasional overlook, making it a pleasant hike to say the least. The views at the top are not out of this world lovely, but they are nothing to scoff at. However this whole trail is composed of slightly large rocks, making the descent almost painful for ankles and not sure footed descenders.

Did this at a leisure pace. it was beautiful. bugs were out of control as I went during high season. However, it was still worth the views and time on trail. We did this in the reverse direction as most, and I think it was worth it. The trail was busy so going in the opposite direction was nice.

This is a must do!

Going to the hot springs is something that everyone should do at least once in their lives. Soaking in a natural hot tub is a unique opportunity that not everyone has. However, the area has become very popular in the last 20 years. At this time, you have to pay a fee to take the trail. This helps to cut down on foot traffic as well as the amount of trash left behind.

This trail winds through the forest near Forks, WA, and is a hike to take if you want solitude. I have been on this trail numerous times and have never met another person. If you want majestic views of valleys and mountains, this is NOT the trail for you as the entire hike winds through thick timber and sometimes thick brush.

This is an awesome trail that is lightly traveled; however, just recently the road to the trailhead has been closed due to the entire hillside giving away, so at this point you cannot even drive to within 5 miles of the trailhead. The Forks newspaper reports that a fix to the road is months away, so check before heading there. The road in question is called Undi Road.

the loop was unclear due to the overgrowth but a nice path indeed.

Awesome hike!!! I would not call this hike easy though. Lots of obstacles and we even had to free climb to get across certain beaches. We went out and back but I would not suggest that unless you are experienced. During the rainy season certain spots are incredibly muddy and roping down inclines becomes more difficult as the ropes are slimy. The views are gorgeous and it's definitely worth it. We saw 5 bald eagles perched on a small stack off the coast in early morning!
