This short little path was rather popular with the tourists on the day that I visited. But the nice view at the end was worth putting up with the crowds.

This hike was my first introduction to the Olympics - WOW! So much to see all the way to the falls. Easy to extend your hike by taking one of the three trails that start just past the falls, which are far less crowded.

pretty much a walk in nature. beautiful trees that drape down and lots of ferns.

A well-maintained trail with a nice view of Lake Quinault.

A strenuous hike but the views of lake crescent from the top are worth it. Beware the snack stealing warblers.

This was my 2nd hike ever, loved the bridges and stone stairs. Absolutely gorgeous

Great climb! Loved the steep at the very top and views were amazing.

Beautiful views from the beginning. I felt a little guilty I drove up the mountain to get to this trailhead at the top- I like
hiking the whole mountain for the payoff- but drive provided beautiful views. Saw deer and lots of sweeping vistas. Easy hike, lots of views.

Excellent option when the Hoh was closed down. Still get a good flavor of rainforest on a very easy trek. Dog friendly, on leash of course.

We started this hike after turning left onto the trail around 7:30am, it ended up being a perfect day with the sun out. the trail was easy to figure out, a good amount of switchbacks which leads to a rock scramble and i think 3 rope areas to climb up. I would not put your full weight on the rope, one of the ropes were pretty sketchy because it looked frayed and was tied to a very small bush. we ended up going to the "false summit" instead. This is the one where you can see over lake crescent and sit or stand on a rock ledge. The true summit was far too steep for us to handle as a normal day hike, it looked a bit more technical.
In all it took about 2.5 hours to summit and back to trail head. we ended up taking a detour to check out the falls which are like an additional .5 miles away after we hiked storm king.

Continue past the falls on the trail for little to no crowds and absolute serenity in the forest. That was my favorite part; this place is magical.

Worth the

insanely beautiful with wild orange mushrooms to one serine log cabin off off to the side of the trail. easy peasy

Beautiful views! Absolutely worth every step. Would highly recommend =)

We went with our 5 and 7 year olds in the pouring rain. It was a great length and experience.

Unexpectedly sunny day in early October! Beautiful visibility and evidence of early snowfall made parts of the trail a little slick. Still well rated as moderate. We went along the ridge out to the peak and I would have liked to have my tracking poles. Views you would need to backpack a few days for in other mountain ranges!

A sweet little trail to a lovely waterfall. We walked this Sept 28th and it was not too crowded.

Great views! Saw Olympic marmot, deer, and Gray Jays. Hiked with Dad and brother Thomas. (This was Aug 19, 2014. Just catching up on AllTrails here.)

Still great conditions!

This is one of my favorite views I have ever viewed.

Fun climb. A good workout and not too long. I went earlier in the day and almost had the mountain to myself. So pieceful!

went on this trail with some friends. it was an awesome trail with plenty to see. the sunset was wonderful and we could see the whales blowing out there air at the surface.

Good views, challenging, well worth it!

Hard hike but the view is definitely worth the climb! Be carful coming down the ropes, the sand can get a bit slippery.

Beautiful beach, easy hike. Great way to spend on the beach if the weather is clear. The trails is easy and the beach has plenty of spots to check out.

Just went up today with three friends in the fog and wet weather. This hike is a real workout but so beautiful in the mist. Despite the rain it wasn't muddy or slippery except for a few spots near the top. We got to the ropes at the very top but chose not to go up the last bit because it looked pretty wet and slippery. If you don't like a very steep climb then you can do Merrymere Falls nearby instead.

Pretty hike. Interactive info panels along the way which were interesting. Id skip the hime along the lake...a bit dull.

This hike was pretty out of the way down a winding irritating roads that never ends it seems. Also, there are a decent amount of people here so you aren’t really ever alone. This is such an absolutely magical place. We were here on 09/09 in the afternoon. Was kind of an overcast day but that didn’t have any affect on the beauty. We had binoculars on us and that made this one of my Fiancé’s favorite parts of our trip. There was a far off rock covered in seals that were jumping on and off the rock and you could see swimming around. Kind of cool to see them in the wild.

Came here on 09/08 a little later in the afternoon. The sun was out as we started our drive up but was getting cloudy as we approached the top. As a result we didn’t get to see the Mountain View’s as the visibility was very low. Also the Hurricane Hill trail was closed which was a surprise and a bummer since when we paid to get in at the beginning of this road they mentioned Hoh Rainforest being closed but not this (Why bring up a closure on the other side of the park but not the one we are headed to??). There was a short .5 loop hike we did on a ridge that begins at the start of the right side of the parking lot called High Ridge Trail. It was nice but started to get slippery and windy and cold by the time we finished. We should have tried to go the next morning as it seemed a bit clearer from Port Angeles but that’s a long drive both ways and it didn’t seem worth it with no guarantee of sunshine/visibility. Moral of the story make sure you check on trail closures and don’t attempt this if the weather isn’t great. Will be much better off in a lower elevation hike where visibility isn’t an issue like in the clouds. Maybe again some day we will get to see it all.
