Fun trail...didn’t get to upper Lena Lake today since I wasn’t prepared for that much snow. Definitely would be fine to get through with proper footwear. No snow for about 1.5 miles past the lower Lena lookout rock.

Definitely download the map and track it... otherwise you will be in there for longer than the 1 hour loop. However it was an easy hike. Lots of mud and huge puddles, but we made our way off the path to go around all that when we got there. It was a nice first of the season hike! We would do it again!

easy trail. slight hills and with my bad knees it was fine
well groomed. next time I'm thinking of a bike. the trail was too long for me to do the whole thing. great trail though.

nice trails not too muddy in March. watch out for motorcycles. we could see downtown Seattle from the top.

Great trip today up to the top. We added a longer route down to get to 6.6 miles and had a smooth trip. Left around 10 am and beat most folks up there. Trail is muddy in some places, but otherwise clear. Disappointed to see the trash at the viewpoint left by others.

Nice trail for families and for those of us not in great shape. Trails not well marked and we got disoriented for about an hour. Wish there were maps for the inside trails.

Beautiful trail!!!

Great family trail with awesome views of the Olympics and hood canal at the top.

nice flat trail, good for a family

perfect moderate hike, beautiful views

Decent trail for a quick hike in the rain.

Easy-ish beautiful trail. A little muddy right now, but otherwise well maintained. This is the first hike my partner and I have attempted since he broke his ankle. We couldn’t do the whole trail as there are quite a few little inclines, but we will definitely attempt this one again when he’s healed.

I wasn’t impressed with the trail , love the beach and picnic areas though, maybe my favorite

Awesome hike! We had a group and had kids with us. The river was beautiful. Found a little beach off the trail and cracked a cold one. The incline going up was a little hard for the little ones but there was plenty of time to take breaks. Definitely worth it and would do it again. Thumbs up! Oh! Also we did the 0.4 mile loop at the top thinking that was the hike... the trail head to the river was actually the first trail to the left behind the map board. Have fun y’all!

It was a beautiful trail. Would love to go back in a few months to see all the wild rhododendrons in bloom.

Beautiful hike would recommend bringing a map some of the trails are not naked very well did the maple valley loop too. The waterfalls were wonderful to see and the trail was well maintained even for winter.

Some nice views on the trail itself of the Olympics as you're coming up. You can catch a view of Rainier at the top but it's obscured partially by some trees. The viewpoint is a pile of rocks and a chain link fence - you can see Seattle and some of the Cascades, but the view is a little limited. Nice walk through the woods though!

Someone enlighten me. We did this last weekend and had no idea where to go when the trail split. We wanted to see the view but after already doing 5 miles and no end insight, I had to turn around. My 3 kiddos were DONE! I didn’t have service so I had no way to navigate. Any tips? I want to try again!!

Beautiful sights. There are a few trails that seemingly intersect, so starting on one may wind up on another.

A nice walk through the forest with a number of small water falls and creeks along the trail. There are some elevation gains at the beginning but it smooths out afterward. A quick a and a half hike.

Nice, quiet hike on a windy day (no wind on the trail). Trail conditions very good with only a few muddy spots, still some patches of snow from earlier in the week. No real views of Hood Canal (a couple glimpses) - most of the hike is solitude which makes it so special.

Gorgeous creek, nice walk. Worth taking the time. Plenty of benches to stop and have a snack or picnic.

Had to maneuver the washout area (will get your feet wet). Came upon a herd of elk walking up the road to the trailhead. North side of loop was closed due to a bridge washout. No warning signs at trailhead.

Perfect day in February for a stunning view across to Seattle!

Very easy, beautiful and relaxing. Great 2 hour walk through a peaceful and totally quiet forest.

great if you stay on the main access only. I wouldn't try the other trails without GPS , some places you just go in big circles

great trail, as long as you stay on the main wide path, and turn around at the two mile marker or the end of the wide path. don't try to follow the trail on GPS.

The name is what caught our curiosity but it's not as impress as it sounds lol we did enjoy going over to the water and skipping rocks.

How do you get to the river?
