Breathtaking views. Beautiful ocean. Dark sand beach. In low tide, a wonderful walk on the beach. Parking at the trailhead; you need a Makah Tribe pass in order to park there. You need go across the Makah Reservation to get to the trailhead. The signs are very easy to follow. There are two ways to get there. The trail is easy but muddy in many places. A wooden staircase has recently been put in at the end and provides an easy access down to the beach, so you don't need to use the rope to go down anymore, but if you prefer, the first rope down the steeper way down is still there. Amazing picture opportunities. Very peaceful and gorgeous place.

Amazing, breathtaking views. Many wonderful picture opportunities. Short, easy, well maintained trail. Convenient parking. Great trail.

I did this hike a year ago and it was a good one. Beautiful, challenging and well kept. There seems to be snow into spring so dress accordingly, I had to learn the hard way with this hike but it was well worth it! Make sure you are in good shape to finish this hike so you can finish it in a timely manner!

Beautiful! Lots of snow at the top today. Glad I brought my spikes.

Be prepared for snow

An incredible trail that is well worth the hike. I was a bit out of shape so it was a little harder than I expected. We got up early so we could beat everyone onto the trail which is a great general rule if you want to keep at your own pace.

The views are incredible. One of my absolute favorite hikes.

A beautiful, quiet snowshoe with the dog. Saw not a soul on the pine marten or June lake trail that morning. Still about 3 feet of snow at the lake, had to break my own trail from about .25 miles out. I was surprised there was not more foot traffic, but glad for it. Roads plowed / all asphalt getting to marble mountain.

Light rain the whole time. Well marked trail, friendly folks and close enough to the city to get an aggressive training hike.

so gorgeous...

Leg Day!!! A nice challenge. The journey is definitively worth the destination here! You'll be glad you did this one. Fair warning, the water is freezing cold! Even in July.

A great challenge and beautiful view! I did not need crampons at the top after Monday’s sunny day it was mostly melted and slushy.

on Barclay Lake Trail

hiking

Snow has melted enough to get to the trailhead and through to Barclay Lake. Service road has dozens of potholes so do use caution if driving a lower vehicle. Trail was clear and takes you alongside the river, crossing a small bridge and then to the Lake. Stunning view straight up from the base of the mountains. The lake was still mostly covered by snow and ice, but it’s a tranquil spot. We even heard some of the snow pack cracking and falling down from the mountainside. Great hike for solitude and exploration.

More for site-seeing and not as much hiking of course. The hike has beautiful views and is worth the short trek. They have a lot of narrow walk-ways so if you have dogs who get excited around other dogs or people just be aware that it's a tight fit, especially if your dogs get aggressive around other dogs (just be aware).

Beautiful beach especially at low tide! Muddy the second half, but not a bad hike. Lots of side trails to bypass the mud, take them! We went today (april 10, 2018) and not too much mud. Wear good walking shoes with thick soles or hiking boots. Expect to get muddy!

Awesome hike! We had a pretty warm day yesterday and a lot of the snow melted at the top. I put my spikes on to walk 20 feet then took them off. Stay on the pinestraw and you're all set, the spikes were over kill IMO.

On April 1st through the 2nd I hiked the Ozette loop, I made it along the video along the way you can find it here: Cape Alava, Sand Point, Ozette Loop Hike 2018https://youtu.be/Y6Ep3_yVMdk From the trailhead at the Ozette Ranger Station I hiked South to Sand Point where we set up camp and then continued south along the beach towards Yellow Banks. I reached the southernmost cape before yellow banks and turned around due to a high tide and I didn’t want to go over the top. That night there was a few rain showers and then it cleared up. I got up early on Monday the 2nd low tide was at around 8:30 I made a quick hike to Cape Alava that morning with a beautiful sunrise and made it back to Sand Point just in time for breakfast. After Breakfast I just hung around Sand Point and enjoyed the beautiful weather. Shortly after dinner I Left for the vehicles and a long drive home. Again here is the video I made along the way: Cape Alava, Sand Point, Ozette Loop Hike 2018https://youtu.be/Y6Ep3_yVMdk
Overall it was an AMAZING hike there where only 2 trees over the boardwalk.

Be safe out there,

Beautiful! One of our favorite hikes to add to the list. It takes awhile to get there from Forks (1.5hr) but it was worth the drive. We saw TONS of bald eagles during the drive so that was awesome! The hike itself is easy, light rain, trail had water/muddy so wear boots but overall the trail was really nice. It was a little foggy but you still had good views. Very few people were there so that was a plus. Definitely will come back to this place.

Great hike! I’m new to the area so I’ve been experiencing all these peaks for the first time! I did this hike on Saturday, April 7th. It was a nasty day out but it’s Washington so I went anyway. The trail is well maintained but never lets you take a break. It starts immediately at a climb and doesn’t stop until the summit. I took a left at the summit loop. There was a pretty sketchy stream crossing shortly after the snow line that I advise extreme caution. Shortly after the crossing the trail gets harder to follow, watch for the dirtier, harder packed areas of snow and just keep going. An occasional orange tag can be seen on a tree. After a short while the trail is much easier to spot. Summiting was not the easiest in the rain and wind but I managed. I was getting pelted with ice rain at the summit and i just wanted to get back down to cover. I did not find the loop down because of snow and the sudden onslaught of Mother Nature so I opted to go back down the way I came. Be careful of where you step. Deep holes lie underneath the snow so don’t stray from the packed path near summit. Micro spikes and trekking poles are a must for safely getting back down. Great hike, no view due to weather, will do again soon!

This was a great, fun hike! there was lots of snow just added to the adventure! can't wait to hike again this summer.

This trail was beautiful the whole way. It was definitely longer than 12.1 miles though. My tracker said 15.3 miles round trip.
5.37 miles until the turn off where the actual climb starts. Took me about an hour and 40 to get to this point. This portion of the trail was well maintained and easy.
After 5.37 miles, the turn off to climb up to the lake will be on the right. It can be easy to miss, but there is a wood sign on the ground that says “Lake Constance”. There are a lot of downed trees on this portion of the trail so be prepared to climb over them. For first mile, it is fairly easy to find the trail. As you get higher up the trail gets hard to find at times. But there are occasional pink and orange ties to guide you. I had the app opened and used the map on here to help me find the path. This portion was slightly over two miles and took me just under two hours. Coming down was slippery so be sure to allow extra time.
There was a little snow toward the top, but nothing crazy. I brought spikes but didn’t need to use them. I did this hike by myself but I would recommend having company.

Roads are still impassable, unfortunately.

Could not get to trailhead, roads are still covered in 5+ ft of snow above 3000'

Looking forward to visiting again in after June.

One of the coolest hikes I have ever done. If you do this loop as an overnight counter-clcokwise staying in the basin, there's a really cool unofficial but easy to follow trail leading from the east side of Lunch Lake past some other lakes back up to the ridge and if you jump off that trail you get epic views over Long Lake.

Beautiful hike. Must bring crampons during this time of year to get to the top.

Steady gain in elevation. Perfect if you’re looking for a low-key morning workout. Hiking boots, poles, and crampons are a must if you want to make it to the top. The snow pack gets pretty slick as you get higher up!
