It was nice, very easy little hike out to the lookout decks.

This was fun. The kids enjoyed it. So did we :)

It is muddy and slippery in some places, but the view points at the end are spectacular. We got to see nesting Murres and listen to their cute calls.

Beautiful beach to wander around. A few cool rock croppings to explore and climb on. There was also a giant pile of accumulated drift trees between trail end and beach we had to climb over - some areas easier than others.

Beautiful setting.....Saw a Blue Heron fly over ...what a sight.

Easy and worth it. Kids can even do it. It is pretty busy though.

Great views, and moderate level of difficulty if you’re not used to hiking. Easy otherwise and beautiful.

Well maintained trail in a beautiful setting. A couple of short climbs, but overall an easy, family friendly walk. It's listed as a one mile loop with 75 feet of elevation gain, but if you're into the amazing trees, it might end up being a little more. I ended up doing 1.85 miles and 138 feet of gain. Lots of people, but definitely worth it.

Great hike if you're looking for something short and sweet. Also well worth it to explore the smaller trails branching off from the main trail. Great views guaranteed, even with cloud cover. Tons of people on the trail though, so expect plenty of company!

Super easy great short stop. Barely a hike, but beautiful views

Wouldn’t call this a “hike” but a beautiful beach stroll. Rather busy area but still a good spot for low tide to check out the tide pools

Wow! Go!

Beautiful, well maintained trail. There is a steep incline and some roots to step over but overall a very even, easy trail. While well trafficked we didn’t have any trouble finding spots for pictures or being able to stop and be alone and have total silence. We went in late July and arrived around 10am. Temperature was very pleasant. We were glad we arrived when we did. Leaving the area around noon, there was no parking and the trails were getting very crowded, there was a line to enter the park.

nice little stroll but very out of the way, so I'd honestly probably never do it again, but if you're coming through just once, it's worth it.

Quick and easy walk to the waterfall.

Probably worth coming to just once. It's quite out-of-the-way. If you've hiked elsewhere in Washington you can easily find moss hanging from trees, so I'm not exactly sure what makes this particular trail so recognized for it.

I don't think we did the "hike" from beach 1, but did walk down the busy path to the beach from the parking lot trail! Seemed great for exploring with kids! Beach wood everywhere, starfish and sea urchins galore out by the big haystack rock. Very cool spot! Had a great weather today too!

Busy with visitors on this sunny July day, easy walk. Signs say an hour, more like 20 min. Fun photo spots. A little dry/brown looking today!

Beautiful beach! If you can go at low tide, check the rocks for starfish!

Extraordinary! Mother Nature put on a magnificent display with a sunny, blue-sky day mixed with ethereal fog that rolled past the beach for a time. Seeing the seastacks swathed in light fog was amazing! The beach is strewn with huge drift logs/trees that are a fun challenge to photo. I've trekked down many beach walks and this is one of my favorites, for sure!

Pleasant, simple trail to get a taste of the Hoh Rain Forest. This trail is well traveled with many park visitors. Take the Hoh River Trail to go deeper into the park and experience more of the beauty of the area.

Very unique hike. Saw some elk munching on some tasty ferns. Yummy!
