hiking

Tough accent with winding switch backs for the first couple miles but the challenge is so worth the reward! The view of the lake and the surrounding area was gorgeous!

hiking

I've been here before and it was a nice easy hike. The only downfall was the trail was paved most of the way.

The road is closed right now though, so you won't be able to get to the trailhead unless you walk from the Madison Falls trailhead which will add about 3.5 miles to your hike. I hope the road opens soon!

hiking

This hike was beautiful. The first half mile or so was downhill (which made for a difficult ending on the way back!) followed by a moderate incline until you make it out of the forest. Once you get there the views are incredible! We went about five miles out before turning back and got great views of the water and olympics, despite the fires to the south which made it pretty hazy. We went on Saturday and the lot was pretty full by 10 AM. I plan on going back!

Very easy walk up to a nice waterfall. Three stars because it wasn't much of a hike because it was a paved walk in. Recommend stop by after your day hike to take a look!

Great trail with waterfalls and Boulder Lake at the end. There was literally no other hikers there when I went in August 2015 and I've no idea why not!

walking

This is very important...do not head west from Port Angeles on this trail. We did, because we wanted to go out on the water, however....did not realize we would basically be walking along the busiest road in town for an hour. We had our two dogs and they were terrified with all the traffic whooshing by and I didn't appreciate breathing exhaust fumes. Not relaxing at all. I don't know if it's because of construction and so this was possibly temporary. We headed back after a half hour and got the dogs some water (it was hot - no shade - no breeze from the ocean). There was one cute little bridge on that side, good for pics. We ended up heading east after that and we were so glad we did! Absoltely gorgeous, tons of shade and if you go far enough you can explore lots of little beaches. We saw a seal swimming by, and a deer with her two babies hopped right by us. I highly recommend THIS PART of the trail, if you come to Port Angeles!

Pretty easy hike overall with amazing views. I had the opportunity to see a group of mountain goats and deer. The only negative is the path is paved most of the way.

I can't call this a hike but it's a cute falls off at the end of a very short walk. Worth a stop to see it for sure!
