Was a great trip! We got lucky with dry weather and temps in the 50-60 range. Low tide opened up a lot of tide pools. I’m definitely hoping to make the long drive to come back over sometime.

Hike it early or late in the day if you want more serenity but I feel it’s a must do if you’re nearby. The trees and moss are just incredible, if you do it right you’ll be moved by the aura of this place. Take your time.

Love this hike!!

Great trail to take with our 7 and 4 year old.

great little easy hike along the river with great chance to see some wildlife

Ruby beach is absolutely stunning! The sand is very soft to walk on and there are also many rocks on the beach to climb to get that Instagram photo. The water is the Pacific Ocean so it is a bit cold but not unbearable to go for a dip. I’ve been to this beach twice and loved it each time.

Nice little hike. There is a lot of elevation gain once you get to the waterfall in the form of stairs mostly but wasn't bad. I saw an old man with a cane doing it. I love the bridge made from a local tree.

Beautiful trail with bridges, tunnels and waterfall. Very easy until the very end there are a few steps to climb up to see the falls.

Awesome hike! We saw 7 deer, 2 owls, 1 turkey and 2 rattle snakes!!! We almost stepped on the first one on the trail, so watch your step and be watchful at dusk!! Beautiful,quiet, and fun hike!!!!

Overcrowded, extremely easy.

It was an easy hike, my 6 yrs. old son didn’t complain at all. It is a 1.5 miles from Lake Crescent Lodge. Old trees are beautiful. Thumbs up for those that worked hard to maintain the trails. Five star all in all.

Cool beach.

Exceeded expectations

Busy easy hike. Beautiful waterfall!

Just completed my first time to Beehive Lake and I can tell you...beautiful lake. It was almost exactly 4.5 miles into the lake and the same out. Trail is good, some spots narrow with brush and last half mile up a rock face...but well marked with cairns. I will tell you...moderate is a little forgiving for this hike. I am 47 and in average shape, and this was a tough hike in...but swimming in the lake made it worth the hard work. Not a lot of camp sites, but worth making it an overnight trip...star gazing was incredible and so was the fishing! Highly recommend for those in decent shape, looking for high mountain swimming, fishing and star gazing!

Short, easy trail to a beautiful waterfall. Numerous No Pet signs, but we encountered two fellow hikers who thought they were "special". Each had dogs! Folks, rules exist for a reason. We called each of these gentlemen out for their wrongdoing, but neither cared at the moment. We need to be the stewards of these beautiful areas! Oh, mosquitoes were minimal today.

It was nice, very easy little hike out to the lookout decks.

This was fun. The kids enjoyed it. So did we :)

It is muddy and slippery in some places, but the view points at the end are spectacular. We got to see nesting Murres and listen to their cute calls.

Beautiful beach to wander around. A few cool rock croppings to explore and climb on. There was also a giant pile of accumulated drift trees between trail end and beach we had to climb over - some areas easier than others.

Beautiful hike! Beautiful lake. Nice mix of of up hill and some nice flat spots too. We thought it was about 8 miles round trip even though it says it’s 5.7 my body says it was longer.

Excellent way to spend an afternoon. Crowded but still fun.

Easy and worth it. Kids can even do it. It is pretty busy though.

Great views, and moderate level of difficulty if you’re not used to hiking. Easy otherwise and beautiful.

Beautiful and short hike from Lake Crescent Lodge, it’s a well maintained trails. Old trees big rocks and the Falls I love them all. The wood stairs are well taking care of. Going up the upper Falls is a little hard on my knees, but it’s worth it. If you want a little easier hike for your knees the lower Falls is a better choice. My 6 years does not have a problem with it though. I’m surprised he didn’t complain. We enjoyed it. I recommend this trail.

Yeah- the trail there is a little muddy right now but not that bad- enjoyed the beach. It wasn't as busy as Rialto but a bit longer to get to some of the rock formations. Still well worth it- And you will need a permit from the Makkahs
