Magical hike through the rainforest. I never tire of how the light flickers in and out and highlights the beauty of these special woods.

So beautiful... tons of hikes and camping. This is a must see!!!

Nice little hike, water is a clear blue, pretty area

It was breathtaking.

THIS IS CLOSED - NOT ACCESSIBLE AS OF SEPTEMBER 11. The road to the trailhead is closed until October 5 apparently - the road closes about 5 miles from the trailhead (I recommend driving the open part anyway, as it’s beautiful), so maybe you’d be able to walk if you were super keen... but I wasn’t that keen hahaha

Nice hike that loops around the river. Cool bridge everyone takes pictures on. Worth the hike for a nice outdoor walk.

Super easy and short looped hike with options to keep going. Beautiful moss covered trees and crystal clear water!

Nice hike. Most of the hike is flat with the exception of the first mile.

A short trip, nice in the evening.

Nice short trail, but it gets pretty steep in some sections. The waterfall is tiny, but a nice stop before heading up to the trestle.

Easy and great hike. There is roughly 2 miles of gravel so be careful when driving down the road. Easy to find trailhead and not very crowded for Labor Day. Views in every direction along the way.

For some reason I bought a ticket to a 1pm movie, but didn't want to skip out on getting this hike done today. Got to the trailhead at 7:30am and tried to keep my pace brisk the whole way, minimizing any side adventures. I did go out to the riverside to enjoy the panorama.

As many have said, you'll be climbing then descending a bit dramatically right at the start, while the rest is fairly flat with some spurts of ups and downs. Nice mix of experiences: completely silent old growth, dense fern ground cover, river sounds, a variety of bridges, very small water crossings (more like step overs) and a mess of sizable logs and tree roots. It feels like a quintessential pacific northwest hike.

Next time I'll give myself a whole day to explore more of the side paths and maybe even get wet in the river.

And I JUST made it to the theater as the trailers were ending. Whew! It was quite a workout.

My favorite place in the Olympics. I've hiked this trail plenty of times at every season. To me is the perfect show case of the Olympics for family and friends to see. Easy and scenic . I've taken all sorts of people through the loop. On a warm day, you can jump off the rocks. The water is cold but crystal clear. Make sure to take the little detours to appreciate it's beauty!

Easy hike with great old growth forest. Hiked in reverse and enjoyed the best canyon view at the end of the hike.

Beautiful views of the water and easy enough for my three-year-old to walk on his own. Great for family time.

I'd rate this as easy not moderate. .

Easy and absolutely gorgeous hike through old growth beside a glacial river.

Interesting hike, very poor signage. You’ll need to park next to the southbound highway one, across from Goldstream Provincial Park parking. Then walk along the highway northbound, there is a the beginning of the trail.

Alternatively you can park at the Goldstream provincial park, go under the tunnel, then climb uphill. There is a waterfall if you walk straight after crossing the tunnel.

I won’t take very young children to the railway trestle, there are no railings on either side, and sections of the trail are quite steep.

easy, beautiful, but crowded.

Hiked today (July 24, 2018). Little longer than advertised-from parking to bridge and back was 5.8 miles with about 2100 feet of total elevation gain. 1st two miles are up and last mile is down. Really a nice hike. Lots of big trees and shade. Well maintained trail. Parking lot was full early in the morning so lots of parking was done along the road. Watch what you park under-just as we came out a large branch from a snag dropped on a car. 3 hours round trip for us. Very enjoyable all the way. Pony bridge is a nice stopping point-but it’s the hike in its totality that I found enjoyable.
Don’t let the elevation gain scare. It steady and gradual-never any switchbacks.

Wonderful trail! Hiked in July, small parking area, but beautiful scenery.

Hiked 08/20/18. This is a nice moderate hike to a gorge on the Quinalt River.

Family friendly hike. Good enough for my nephews and nieces who the ages 9 to 12.

This is the perfect micro hike. There’s a little elevation, a little water, massively adorned trees and moss all around!

Nice waterfall but I have seen better.The road to the beginning of the trail is bad.A hiker from Czech rep.

Hike it early or late in the day if you want more serenity but I feel it’s a must do if you’re nearby. The trees and moss are just incredible, if you do it right you’ll be moved by the aura of this place. Take your time.

Absolutely beautiful! The walk was wonderful and doing it counterclockwise meant we saved the best canyons views for last.
