Short but pretty!

Only went about 4 miles in, but the river and the scenery are great. The water of the river is a gorgeous blue, and we found a giant 4-leaf clover by the trail.

Very short and very beautiful

We did the trail out to 5 Mile Island, out and back. It's a beautiful trail and not too busy in the middle of the week. The forest changed as we got further out from the start. Too many wonderful images to list.

Awesome. Highly recommend three days for backpacking to not rush through the experience. We did it in two

Magical is the only word to describe this trail!! Loved it!!

Beautiful! The dogs had an easy time of it as well.

Went camping from SEA>101 W to Fort Flagler state park >101 W and S to Hoh Rainforest>back up 101 N to Second Beach, then back up 101 N and E to SEA via ferry.

If you wanted to adventure I recommend this itinerary. Coming back 101 N and E I saw the sun rising behind the Olympics. No other cars. Really beautiful and breathtaking. I think going E offers better views in general and of the mountain landscape, for example at Lake Crecent.

You also see signs for Kitchen-Dick Rd near Port Angeles if you're going through, which is funny.

Amazing. Did in March. Didn't see a park ranger, saw some fellow backpackers and some day hikers. Needed a wilderness permit from visitors center to hang on my backpack.

Trail is easy to follow, didn't need map or compass. Nice peeks of Olympic peak here and there. Beautiful wide braided turquoise river. Super beautiful. Flat at most times but sometimes hilly. Wide and tall trees. Lots of moss. Some of the campsites that are clearly marked on the trail have bear wire.

Never seen so much moss on trees

Views are incredible but I drove up

Love this hike to a unique waterfall! One of the best, shorter hikes to do in Olympic!

Enjoyable, easy walk through a rainforest.

Great beach, fun for kids to play and explore.
