    Audrey Farr reviewed Ingalls Creek Trail to Lake Ingalls

    10 months ago

    I almost reached the lake on this hike back at the end of May/beginning of June, but we hit heavy snow and stayed at the last campground that wasn't completely under. We hadn't prepared for deep snow so where we camped on the slop worked great for us in the end. Our group left Memorial Day to start the hike, so by the time we were up and starting that evening there was no one else, everyone had gone home. We only encountered three other groups during our 4 days here; one was an older couple heading home from doing the first 5 miles as a day hike, the second was a group coming in to camp at the 5 mile mark, and the last were a few people looking to go beyond the 5 mile mark.
    This trail is a gentle climb continually upward towards the lake and isn't too strenuous, just be prepared to put in several miles. There are camp grounds along the way with a rather large on 5 miles in, but after that you won't find any for some ways. We had slight overcast some of the days we were out but no rain. The snow melt off had flooded the river and it was raging pretty hard, the area where horses normally cross the river was completely unsafe during this time of year because of the high water level. We didn't have problems with bugs really, and you could see the mountains to the right towering above so it was VERY beautiful. Wild flowers, especially wild Lupin, were blooming everywhere. It was picturesque. I wish we could have made it to the lake. We covered 24 miles in all and I would do it again gladly

    Audrey Farr reviewed Breakneck Pond Loop Trail

    10 months ago

    I followed this trail almost exact, except I kept to the park maps Blue Blazed Nipmuck Trail instead of breaking off onto the Ridge Trail. There were some hills and rocky parts, and I've been pretty lazy during this summer (too hot!), but I was able to complete the whole trail while carrying my 1-year old on me and a backpack. I also had my dog with me and she LOVED the trail and swimming in the pond. I'm planning on bringing my husband back with me to camp since there are a lot of camping spots along the trail as well. We saw several frogs, toads, birds, mushrooms, flowers, and the southern half of Breakneck Pond was covered in lilies in bloom, thousands of them! The only down side was the bugs, bring bug spray and spray yourself REALLY well EVERYWHERE! I think this has been my favorite hike in CT thus far, I hope to find more like it.

    Good trail, a bit of a mix of paved road, dirt road, horse/mountain biking trail, and regular foot trail. The view from the top was nice, even though we went while it was cloudy and rainy out. I would suggest this trail as a running trail as well for those that don't mind the rocky parts and the up and down hills. The only thing that was a little annoying was the lack of markings. There were tons of different trails branching off of the main trail I was trying to follow, none of them were marked, including the trail on the map here, so you have to really pay attention to your GPS and try to stick with the trail on the map, unless you feel like exploring of course. Besides that it was a beautiful little trail, I carried my baby and a backpack up it, along with having my dog with me.

    Short hike, the trail is listed as moderate but it's not, its very easy, rather flat, wide trail, but lots of roots and some muddy patches. ran it with my dog, it was nice following the creek, but be careful of all the break off trails, stay on the blue and yellow marked trail(if you are leaving the parking lot and head to the right across the bridge) until on your way back you'll notice it splits off to the right and a red marked trail continues to the left. go down the red marked trail to make the full circle. I enjoyed it, it would make a nice day walk as well, just to get out and relax.

    Audrey Farr reviewed Putvin Trail to Lake of the Angels

    about 1 year ago

    I've hiked this trail a few times now, my father would take us when we were teenagers, and it was always beautiful, a little rough getting up to the meadows, but absolutely gorgeous once up there. There were lots of goats, wild flowers, and clear blue skies last time I was there. We usually do this as a day trip but it would be a perfect place to camp as well.

    Summited. It was beautiful, you can't beat those views, and I only got part of them seeing as the Olympics were being their typical way; rainy, cloud covered, cold. I loved the hike even though it was windy and chill at the top, and I suggest going, even if it might rain.

    Audrey Farr reviewed Lake Constance Trail

    Long story short, my father took all 5 of us children on this trail, at least to the lake, to show us how awesome all the other mountains were. This mountain is awesome, the lake is beautiful, the trail kicked my butt as a 12 year old hiking in January. Part of the trail was washed out, and this was before the road below washed out, becoming the Dosewallips Road Trail (They haven't fixed it since so I didn't have those added miles on). Make sure that you are ready for a continual up hill hike, and give yourself plenty of time on it. I'm hoping to do this hike again some day, because it was the hike that taught me how wonderful all other mountains and hikes are, and I have not complained about going on a mountain climb or hike since. Great hike, just make sure you're ready ;)

    Awesome Trail, great views, beautiful lake, could see Mt. Hood. Did this hike a long time ago when I was a young teenager with family. I don't remember what time of year it was, but everything was covered in snow, so winter/early spring I'm thinking. Loved it.

    Audrey Farr reviewed Mirror Lake Loop Trail

    about 1 year ago

    Beautiful hike, not too tough as long as you're okay with up hill the entire way there, but besides that the trail is simple and pounded down from high volumes of hiking traffic. You can camp at the lake or you can continue up to Tom, Dick & Harry Ridge, which gives a wonderful view. I've been up to this lake a few times now just as day trips for hiking and for photography purposes. You can see Mt. Hood clearly from the lake as well, which makes for beautiful pictures and vistas.

    Audrey Farr reviewed Campbell Falls

    about 1 year ago

    I gave it a 3 for the waterfall. Besides that, it was probably the most boring trail I'd ever hiked...I was expecting it to be a bit longer, or more to it, but its seriously there only for the waterfall, which is VERY beautiful! So if that's what you're interested then its a good short walk, not a hike, to the falls. Enjoy!

    Audrey Farr reviewed Upper Big Quilcene Trail via Marmot Pass

    about 1 year ago

    Loved this hike, it was absolutely beautiful with only a few clouds, which is not typical for the Olympic Peninsula. My father and I hiked in, but we took a different route than normal from our camp spot along the river, about halfway up the trail rather than the typical camping ground just below Marmot Pass on the east side. We decided to check out some rock climbing areas and some of the ridge to the south, so we bush-wacked our way up along one of the streams that joins the Big Quilcene River, found a goat trail, and continued heading along the ridge westward, passing Charlia Lake far below us to the south, and coming all the way around to Marmot Pass. From there we headed back east down the normal trail as marked to our camp ground and headed out that same day. It was beautiful, late June and picture perfect.

    Excellent Trail for running, exercising, walking, and getting a little peace and quiet, especially for locals. I've seen deer, rabbits, squirrels, all sorts of different kinds of birds, fish in the creeks, frogs, and several other smaller types of wildlife. Come Spring and Summer and there are usually plenty of wildflowers growing too.

    I enjoyed this hike, it wasn't too strenuous, a good distance too for a day hike, and the water was VERY refreshing (as in SUPER COLD) when I was there. We some some wildlife and most of the hike was in shade, so the heat of AZ didn't bother us too bad.
