Great hike 9/8/18. Well maintained trail alongside beautiful blue water. This easy trail provides stunning views, old growth forest and even a few opportunities to swim in the clean, clear lake. Can’t wait to return!

In early August, this trail was dry and easy to follow for 3/4 of the hike, but the final quarter to the waterfall was a bit more challenging as the incline was quite steep. There are lots of uneven stairs to aid. My 65-year-old dad, who has bad knees, completed the hike with the aid of a hiking stick.
The waterfall was beautiful, but I’m sure would be incredible in the spring. The hike starts and ends at the beautiful, clear Lake Crescent. It was gorgeous.
I took away one star due to the crowds on the trail.

Beautiful. The lake is gorgeous.

Perfect! Easy, good hike, good views and interesting trail.

We hiked this trail today and then down the Klahhane Ridge Trail to Lake Angeles. It was a very challenging hike, and due to the smoke coming in from the forest fires, were not sure the difficulty was worth the pay off in views. I also found Lake Angeles itself to be underwhelming which was disappointing as it was the pinnacle of our hike. I definitely feel accomplished after finishing it, but disappointed that we saw no wildlife (animals) and few wildflowers. It was a quick trip into the park from our Airbnb in Port Angeles, which was nice

Love this hike! The views are amazing. We saw a lot of mountaingoats near the trail. And there was one on the end of the trail, super cool. The way up was easy but steep. The way down was al tough because of the loose sand. You need good walking boots.

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.

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.

Busy easy hike. Beautiful waterfall!

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.

Awesome short hike..bring BUG SPRAY, there are lots of mosquitos.

Not really a hike per se, but definitely worth a stop if you’re out this way.

Very nice, flat stroll. Beautiful views of Lake Crescent the entire hike. Must see Devil’s Punchbowl- as others have said, take the trail LEFT of the 1st tunnel, not through the tunnel. You will cross a bridge over the swimming hole. Then loop around so that you go through the tunnel on the return trip. Great for kids!

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.

We backpacked this trail in 4 days and a wake-up. We got dropped off at Hurricane Ridge and took the Wolf Creek Trail 8 miles down to the Whiskey Bend Trail Head. A pretty quick drop in elevation definitely was hard on the knees and makes your ears pop. Then stayed in Lillian Camp the first night. Great spot close to the river with great amenities. The trek wasn't too bad getting to Hayes River the second night. There is a great swimming hole under the bridge. Martin's Lake was not an easy find at the Low Divide the third night. The trail was empty until the third night. The Sixteen Mile campground could use a sign or two with some direction as to where to Ford the River. A couple of Cairns on the other side helped us find our way. From Low Divide we hiked to Wolf Bar; another wonderful site. The original plan was to stay at Elip Creek, but it was taken over by Volunteers cleaning the trail. (Thank you!) Not a single downed tree from Elip to Quinault. Only 4 stars due to trail conditions and not very scenic compared to the south fork Enchanted Valley.

We hiked from the Spruce RR trailhead all the way to the North Campground, about 5-5.5 miles EACH way. The CLIFF diving, also known as Devil's punchbowl in 1 mile in from trailhead. The reason newbies MISS it is because they wish to walk THRU the RR tunnel. If you're going to swim or watch jumpers, you take the dirt trail to the LEFT of the 1st tunnel. The swimming/cliff diving is on that path along the lake to the side of the 1st bridge. Water is deep, blue and COLD!! Have fun. The next tunnel is 1.6 miles continued along the trail. After that... we "thought" we'd find another trail and it was a LONGGGG trek all the way to that darn North Campground (one portapotty)and then 2 miles back to the 2nd tunnel. Kinda boring from 2nd tunnel to the North campground on a newly crushed gravel road.

Nice short walk through forests that lead to a waterfall.

Great trail for the entire family. Dog friendly, shaded, well groomed trail for hiking and biking. A few tighter areas that may require walking your bike, but safe for everyone. A lot of people were looking for the bridge and Devils punch bowl but could not find it. Locals may have a better idea, as no one we encountered knew of its location. So ask around if that’s what your going for.

It’s a nice little hike with a beautiful waterfall. Good activity for folks who like short hikes. During the summer there are lots of folks.

beautiful! Great for kids and grandparents.

loved it

Great trail, not too long but for sure a good workout. In total, took us about an hour and a half there and back, but taking our time up. The view is well worth it at the top! Saw a lot of goats from a distance. Working off of a mcl tear and going down is steep and a bit hard on the knees-wouldn’t suggest if you are fresh off an injury or struggle with balance!

Excellent hiking trail through the forest to reach the waterfall at the top.

A wide and very pleasant trail with large old-growth trees, ferns, and mosses. The water fall is nice.
