Olympic National Park Map

Beautiful day to hike the beach. A lot tougher then it looks when your sinking in soft sand, dodging the waves and sliding on small rocks. Check the tide schedule before you head to Rialto.

A wonderful, narrow, winding trail. Really feels like the heart of the forest. Very little elevation gain. There was no snow on the trail on March 20. A couple of fallen trees to climb over on the way, but nothing bad. Towards the end of the trail, you can see and hear a beautiful creek down below.

The road is closed trying to get to Heart O' The Hills trailhead, you have to walk passed the closed gate about 200 yards to get to the start of the trailhead which starts at E loop. The trail is so tranquil, we were the only ones on the it. Minimal snow patches, wet and soggy trail. Lots of roots through trail. Few trees down to hurtle over.

Like the others, watch for the tide schedule! It’s truly a beautiful scene and definitely worthwhile. I went with my grandfather who had no trouble walking down to the water! It’s a fairly easy trail and a popular one as well - we went on the weekend) and it was somewhat difficult to find parking. Definitely would return whenever i have the time to!

great views of North and South sound

This was an amazing trail! It was a constant workout on the way up, but only two miles, so not too bad. The trail is in great condition! Almost all of the snow was gone, just a little bit at the north view point. Both views were breath taking! Coming down was tough on my knees even with poles, but still loved the hike!

Right out my front door. The perfect trail for a multitude of outdoor activities.

Gorgeous trail! We did this on a sunny day in March and it was perfect, plenty of traffic but not enough that it felt crowded

Very good hike. I would say moderate to strenuous. Views on top are amazing, mountains on the North view and beautiful views of Hood Canal on South view about another half mile.

One of the best trails in Washington! The scenery is breathtaking on the top.
A little icy the last part of the trails so microspikes were helpful.

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!

Long drive from the Seattle area. Went in early March. The trail is 1/2-1 mile long downhill. When you get to the bottom there’s many different trails you can explore leading to different views of the caves and ocean. Trail was slightly muddy so boots would be advised unless you don’t care about getting your shoes dirty.

Nice quick hike

Nice short hike with 2 cool bridges to cross. Water is crystal clear.

Great hike, didn’t go all the way up seeing as we’re not in our best shape and we ran into slippery snow and forgot spikes. expect a solid 2 miles of all up hill. Plan to try again soon though. Tough enough to slow me down and take breaks, but not so tough that it was impossible.

very easy and well maintained. Also incredibly beautiful!

this one is fairly easy,pretty but also very beautiful to see all the green and the water, fresh water at that. I've taken my granddaughter up there she's 6 months old it was just beautiful and didn't take very long

I live by this hike and it's my favorite I do it year round. I've seen all ages do this hike

Roads were snowy. Trail had slush so going down decline was tricky.

The drive from Port Angeles was very long. The beautiful weather when we left wasn't nearly as beautiful when we got there. The hike was short and sweet. Not too difficult. the views were amazing. We can say that we have seen them but not sure I'd do it again.

beautiful scenery year-round. i highly recommend a visit in mid Autumn though for the myriad of colors and depth throughout the trail.

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

Fun hike to the lighthouse with husband and 9 year old son - highly recommend as a family outing.

I’d say this is more hard than moderate. It’s 10-20% grades and 2,000 elevation gain at 2 miles up and another 2 down. I’d say poles or a walking stick would be a good idea. Look up the weather conditions before you go, it was a whiteout when I got to the top.

Stunning views of the sea stacks and ocean.

Loved this beach hike. Truthfully I enjoyed the shark fin shaped rocks more than the hole in the wall. Beautiful and worth slip sliding in the beach rocks. If you go at high tide you will need to find a way around the water that runs into the ocean. There are a lot of fallin trees that you can use to get across.

Absolutely stunning. Easy trail, with a charming wood plank trail to look outs around the cape. The most beautiful place to watch the sunset.

Super gorgeous winter day. Sun was out and made the views incredible. The trail was a little muddy in some places so make sure you’re prepared for that. We went down to the little beach area too! Again, muddy but worth it!

Feb 2018 - Inaccessible at the moment due to flooding in November that wiped out the trail and both campsites.
