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.

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

Loved it. Views of the Olympics, Cascades, Victoria Island and the San Juan Islands. Made it all the way out to the lighthouse. Watch the tide tables. Towards the end I was forced up into the rocky areas which is harder to walk on.

Beautiful views of water, islands and mountains - what more can you ask for?

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!!!

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

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

beautiful scenery year-round. i highly recommend a visit in mid Autumn though for the myriad of colors and depth throughout the trail.

Feb 2018 - Inaccessible at the moment due to flooding in November that wiped out the trail and both campsites.

Beautiful! Super nice and easy!!

This was a challenging yet doable hike for a beginner snowshoer. Amazing views made it all worth it. Just note that it is a mile and a half from the visitor center to the trail head. We did 6 miles roundtrip. Also, the road to the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center was in good condition but only open Friday - Sunday in the winter 9am to 5pm. Best to get there early. We were waiting in line at the gate at 8:40am, got to the Visitor Center parking at 9:30. Started hiking at 10am and back to the car just before 2pm.

Great hike! enjoyed the falls and moss filled landscape!

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!

It’s all about the views on this one!

Beautiful Hike. would go again in the spring/summer to get the best sunset view. went while it was raining. So awesome

Easy and beautiful

Very easy walk around an incredible environment

A beginner hiker may get winded on the ascent but it is SO worth it when you get to the top. I would 100% do it again. Make sure you bring water and sunscreen. There’s very little tree coverage

Great views even on a cloudy day. Enjoyed walking around on a Sunday and exploring the beaches. Dog friendly but be careful as there are some steep cliffs :)

beautiful mountains and view❤️

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.

Beautiful hike. Very accessible, easy going but nevertheless transports you to a different planet. More of a nature-walk than hike.

We were hoping to do more in the area but in the end ran out of time. This short trail is just perfect for such an occasion - it takes very little time and the views in all directions are just stunning. Not much of a hike, but as short walks go, it's great. Also the deer and marmots seem used to humans, so you can watch them from fairly close up.

Pleasant walk in a lovely, lush, green forest. Definitely worth a visit, and it doesn't take very long at all.

Beautiful easy climb to waterfall , filled w trees dripping w moss and giant cedars. Be sure and stop at Lake Crescent lodge

always changing and a tree had fallen on the trail but beautiful as always, even in the rain. great family trail
