Olympic National Park Map

As those have already stated, the trail head is a mile and a half from the visitor's center where you start when snowshoeing. It wasn't overly crowded. Stunning views on a beautiful day. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Beautiful waterfall, but this is not a actual trail. The falls are right off the road. Parking and bathroom facilities available.

Quiet quick.08 walk through the rustic moss filled woods. Beautiful scenery.

So pretty, easy walk! Dog friendly and it wasn’t that crowded.

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

Not a difficult hike at all. I did the 6 miles round trip, and it’s only 1k elevation change. The weather was amazing but they do call it hurricane ridge for a reason, it’s windy. Good amount of snow from the lodge to summit. Views are amazing, on a clear day, you can see Mt. Baker, Straight of Juan de Fuca, and awesome vistas from the Olympics. Highly recommend!!!

Not a hike, but pretty waterfall. It didn’t feel as spectacular as Marymere falls.

this one had a beautiful off Trail which is called the devil's Punchbowl I thought that was beautiful and amazing and it's not hard at all super easy a stroller with big wheels could even go on

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

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

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

Beautiful! Super nice and easy!!

Hiked this trail two weeks ago. Carried 50lb packs and camped about 5 miles out. Now maybe things are much different in the summer when the weather is a little more forgiving, but I definitely wouldn’t rate this trail as easy! Once you get out past “Hole in the Wall” the hiking terrain is constantly changing between different wet rock scrambles...some very slippery. It’s a lot of fun! But not something you can speed through, or ever want to do in the dark (my partner really didn’t understand why I wanted to get started so early, so our timeline was poor)

Tides are no joke. Get a tide chart along with a map from the ranger station. We did this in the winter, when the tides are their worst. There are points that are impassible during high tide if the sea level is high enough. Us being ignorant, we’re sure that we could take detour routes at these impassable spots. No. The rangers aren’t lying when they say impassible. We hiked straight up a mountain side probably steeper then a 45 degree angle for 20 minutes, slipping and sliding through thick temperate rainforest growth and still couldn’t find any passage way to come out around our road block. Waited 2 hours for the tide to lower just enough to make it by, and on the other side of our attempted detour was a straight cliff. So it’s a good thing we gave up on our detour climb.

Set up camp in a small cove on a soft sand beach about a mile past Chile shipwreck memorial. Ocean was hundreds of yards away. 2:30 in the morning I’m waking my buddy up because the tide is about to reach his tent. At high tide of 9.5’ that night, the entire cove that we camped in turned into the ocean. We had plenty of time to get to safe ground, but the situation easily could have turned bad if something like bad weather was in play too.

Don’t be the dummies like us, and prepare accordingly! We expected this to literally be a walk on the beach, and Mother Nature swiftly reminded us the price of ignorance.
Otherwise beautiful hike. The overcast wild beach scenery is something like off of a movie. Drift wood tree trunks everywhere that are larger then any trees I’ve seen before, and they just get tossed inland by the ocean like toothpicks.

This was a challenging yet doable hike for a beginner snowshoer. Amazing views made it all worth it. Just note that it is a mile and a half from the visitor center to the trail head. We did 6 miles roundtrip. Also, the road to the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center was in good condition but only open Friday - Sunday in the winter 9am to 5pm. Best to get there early. We were waiting in line at the gate at 8:40am, got to the Visitor Center parking at 9:30. Started hiking at 10am and back to the car just before 2pm.

Great hike! enjoyed the falls and moss filled landscape!

Definitely worth the walk! Flanks the north side of Lake Crescent. Beautiful views.

Nice one for the family! Rewarded with a beautiful waterfall!

Loved this little hike! Unfortunately, we couldn’t camp because there was a lot of washed up debris, but we enjoyed our campsite at La Push!

Easy and beautiful

Very easy walk to see a waterfall. It is cool so you may want a jacket to keep warm. Bathrooms are available and it’s paved 90% of the way

Very easy walk around an incredible environment

A beginner hiker may get winded on the ascent but it is SO worth it when you get to the top. I would 100% do it again. Make sure you bring water and sunscreen. There’s very little tree coverage

Beautiful old growth forest. Went off the beaten path along the river, what a magical experience.

beautiful mountains and view❤️

pretty falls but very short hike. sign says 1.5 hrs. It took us a half hour roundtrip.

very short and I mean very but pretty if you are nearby.

Beautiful hike. Very accessible, easy going but nevertheless transports you to a different planet. More of a nature-walk than hike.

Absolutely gorgeous and extremely accessible. Small incline. Gorgeous photos. Storm King looms nearby
