Trails I've Hiked 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.

great views of North and South sound

Ended up way off course due to very little markings, even with a paper map both myself and a ranger ended up taking a four mile detour to find the falls, very pretty end result, muddy so stabilize yourself!

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!

Found a pair of glasses on my way down from this hike today (3/15/18). anyone lose a pair? they are thin lenses and a pretty strong prescription!

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

Beautiful trail. Not very well marked... It was quite the fun adventure though. One tip would be to go back out the same way you come in... We made the mistake of going a different way out. Oops

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.

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!!!

Cool little place to visit. Not marked very well though.

Very nice hike! Sadly people can't seem to at least walk off the trail to relieve themselves though! lots of TP on the trail:(
But great work out, beautiful waterfalls and bridges!

Not very well marked. We walked way more than we should have and everybody on the trail we met was there for the first time. But we found the falls eventually. it was a long hike overall but worth it.

My all time favorite hike. But it has gotten so crowded in recent years. I visited here just weeks before the fire closed it in 2017.

Very sad. But can’t wait for it to reopen.

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

A great hike today. Due to the snow fall the past two weeks, the last half of the trail still has snow on it ... so bring your trekking poles. :)

A really unique hike. I did it solo and quickly felt it would have been a better time with a few other people. Make sure you have at least two durable and dependable head lamps. Some rock scrambling is necessary. Hiked March 6th, and it was warmer in the cave than outside, at about 40*.

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.

Beautiful hike with the snow! Still doable with hiking boots, but would recommend having something else, especially for going back down.

I can see how this trail could be really rewarding. Today the first couple miles had no snow but toward the lake it was snowy. There were several people stuck slipping and sliding but we marched right through with micro-spikes (highly recommended). The day was overcast and off and on rain. The Lake was mostly frozen. Fairly easy hike with mild elevation gain. Great trail!

One of my favorite waterfall hikes so far !! Seriuosly breathtaking . Very few hikers today, made it even more peaceful & beautiful . Little muddy & slippery in spots . Totally worth it though . Recommend wearing hiking boots until it dries out .

Some nice views on the trail itself of the Olympics as you're coming up. You can catch a view of Rainier at the top but it's obscured partially by some trees. The viewpoint is a pile of rocks and a chain link fence - you can see Seattle and some of the Cascades, but the view is a little limited. Nice walk through the woods though!

Beautiful !!! Snowy closer to the top and the way down !!! Amazing family hike !!!❤️❤️

I started the trail around 10. I reached the lake around noon. Luckily there was one other hiker that had started before me, or I would not have known where to go. The trail is covered in snow and closer to the top it gets around knee deep. I only had crampons but snow shoes and poles would have been nice.

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

Someone enlighten me. We did this last weekend and had no idea where to go when the trail split. We wanted to see the view but after already doing 5 miles and no end insight, I had to turn around. My 3 kiddos were DONE! I didn’t have service so I had no way to navigate. Any tips? I want to try again!!

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.

Such a beautiful day and hike! It was quiet and beautiful and clear. Fresh snowfall early in the morning and myself and another group were the first ones up... It was a decent hike upwards for the first half, but nothing too difficult. Didn’t even need cramp-ons.

I took the Upper Lena Lake trail for a mile and turned around - it got way too slick and icy in patches. I have good boots, but not good enough for that one.

The hike down was much wetter and more slick. Not terrible, just had to be cautious. And there were a ton more people heading up as I finished (11:00-ish).

Definitely worth doing and the lake would be so beautiful to hang out at on a warm sunny day!

it was about a year ago that I went on this trail but it is super cool and unique, very beautiful. I am a Utah residing Washington native and this is probably my favorite hike of all time. I would, however, recommend bringing a sweatshirt, a headlight, and a handheld light (per person). Extra batteries wouldn't hurt, either. I love this trail, though!

Hiked 2/12/18 and LOOOOVEEDD it. Would personally rate as easy, but that’s just me. Was a beautiful day and didn’t want to leave the lake.
