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.

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

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

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

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

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

this Trail is Muddy year round so expect to get muddy it's easy all the way up until the end then it has a steep slope which has a rope to get down to a beach. the water is dangerous though so be careful

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

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.

The trail is as muddy as they say, there are a lot of side trails to bypass the mud but you’re still gonna get muddy. I’d recommend coordinating your trip for low tide so you can explore the tide pools and more of the beach, plus it’s easier walking on hard packed sand.

Stunning views of the sea stacks and ocean.

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

Beautiful! Super nice and easy!!

Great hike! enjoyed the falls and moss filled landscape!

My husband took me here when we first started dating. It is breath taking! Go at sunset!

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

I wouldn’t say the whole hike is easy, but it’s definitely got variety! Plan a good chunk of time to take your time and experience/ explore!

Beautiful moderate/easy hike. I brought friends who were new to hiking, they only wore keds, and while their feet were muddy and wet at they end, they were fine. But I recommend boots.. Hardly no incline, beautiful views of the Elwha river most of the way. Some downed trees and waterfall along the path you have to get past.
Definitely make sure you park by the trail head. Which is located on Hennick Rd. I parked in what I thought was a parking lot but it was a locals driveway. He was nice about it but be cautious. The first .5 miles is on private land.
It took me and my friends 3 hours to do the whole 6.5 miles, it was a very pleasant hike:).

It’s a great hike down to the beach but is almost entirely downhill. Once reaching the bottom, there are large amounts of driftwood to navigate before reaching sand. It’s truly a sight once you’re on the beach. The only let down was some trash from humans. The walk back was entirely uphill and tiring. The trail is one lane only so sometimes you have to stand aside to let traffic pass. Be prepared to be a little wore out after traversing sand and the uphill climb combo

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

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

road closed at Madison falls so could not get thru. Jan 2018. gave 5 stars since no other way to let others know.

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.
