    over 1 year ago

    I always try to avoid this popular trail on the weekends. Yesterday was no exception with lots of waiting on the trail. We passed on the falls this time but if you haven't been there it's something you will want to venture up to see. The lake is still frozen over but plenty of open dry spots to rest on lunch rock. Snow covered trails around the lake and the last 200-300 yards of the trail.

    We decided Lake Dorothy would be a great place to come back for a night or two! Easy trail but LOTS of steps. Short trip up to day use area which is on the north end of the Lake. We encountered many families camping and hiking which is great to see! You will be on gravel roads for about 8 miles getting to the trailhead and don't forget your Forest Pass.

    Bob Pittenger reviewed Lena Lakes Trail

    about 2 years ago

    The 3 mi trail to the lower lake is wide, well maintained and easy to moderate. I wish people would stop cutting the switchbacks as this wear on the trail detracts from the beauty of it. As you approach the lake you see glimpses of it through the trees. We continued on the main trail which parallels the west side of the lake until we came to the upper lake trail. This trail immediately becomes a single track trail and you notice the increase in elevation. The upper lakes trail is noticeably more difficult but becomes even more so as you approach Upper Lena Lake. Our last hour or so was very challenging especially with our 20-30 lb packs. I can see why many people camp at Lower Lena and do a day hike up. Along the upper trail, you enter the Olympic National Park so dogs are not allowed past that point. Be prepared for lots of vertical hiking. Upon coming to a beautiful alpine leadow you feel a little relief from the challenge only to realize the rest of the hike is the most difficult. We are seasoned mountain hikers and were exhausted upon our arrival to Upper Lena Lake. There are 8 designated wilderness campsites which require a permit and reservations for a stay. It is needless to say, beautiful and secluded. From Upper Lena you can explore Scout Lake and Milk Lake. We found that trail maps for these trail extensions to be non-existent but the trails seem easy to follow. This is a spectacular hike with views at the top of Mt Lena and Mt Rainier.

    Bob Pittenger reviewed Goat Lake Trail

    about 2 years ago

    We have been up to Goat Lake twice and it is becoming one of our favorite trails. The next trip will be an overnight for sure. This is an easy hike for the initiated and the lower trail follows Elliott Creek a majority of the way up. Stop and take in the meadow just before arriving to the Lake and also be sure to spend some time at the falls before the meadow. The upper trail is definitely more mundane but beautiful views and very easy terrain make it worth at least taking it once.

    Easy hike, well defined dirt trail. Last 15 minutes are the steepest and more moderate.

    Relaxing hike just right for an afternoon get-a-way! Easy to moderate hike and I'm a sucker for a beautiful lake at the end of the trail!
