    Michael Fitzgerald reviewed Summit Lake Loop

    8 days ago

    Did this as a day trip. Beautiful, but you pay the price. The first 1.5 - 2 miles is down hill mostly. Then, it's up hill! There are some pretty strenuous sections unless you are pretty fit. End result is very nice. One problem .... because the up hill section caused you to work out, forgetting about the first 1.5-2 miles is easy. It wasn't until returning to that section that I remembered about it. I hated that last stretch. I was already breast, but had no choice. I slept well that day!

    There are 3 creek crossings. The first one would be pretty difficult in times of high water ... i.e. snow melt in the spring or shortly after a down pour. keep weather in mind. One good thing ... water was plentiful, so didn't need to pack a lot.

    Nothing spectacular. Easy walk. paved. Easily accessible. Great for someone who doesn't want to go off trail or has little ones.

    Nice hike for someone who has limited fitness and mobility who wants to enjoy the outdoors and get a sampling of what the Hoh Rain Forest has to offer.

    This is a short and easy hike. It is worth traveling you. you get to enjoy the drive by Cresent Lake and the lush greenery of the woods up to the falls. Enjoy!

    A fun trail to run when it isn't raining. if hiking, pack a lunch and have a picnic at 5 mile island.

    Visiting this place only once doesn't do this falls justice. The flow changes each time I've been there. It has character. For beautiful pictures of this place, go to a local photographer's facebook page - Klaass Images.

    This place is well worth the drive to it!!!!

    Thus place is beautiful year round, but if you can make it during spring runoff you'll be treated with a wonderful sight.

    Great little place to hike if you want to hike without traveling very far. Not too strenuous. The view of the sound is nice once on top.

    Michael Fitzgerald reviewed Moro Rock Trail

    Beautiful view ... well worth the time greeting up early and watching the sunrise. If you are up for a long day and a journey, get up early and watch the sunrise at Moro Rock. Then proceed to the coast and watch the sunset at Morro Rock.

    This is even more beautiful in the winter. You will need a pair of snow shoes and hike from the museum. Well worth the hike in the snow. Gorgeous!!!

    Michael Fitzgerald reviewed Tokopah Valley Trail to Tokopah Falls

    A great little hike. Best done early in the season so you get to enjoy the falls when they are flowing. I have hiked this quite a few times. Anticipate bear sightings - I've seen a bear over half the times I've been on this hike. Great hike for kids or people who are out of shape and want the opportunity to enjoy beautiful scenery.

    It was a nice little walk. Nothing spectacular. If you want to be outdoors and don't want to do anything strenuous, then this is a good hike to consider.

    Michael Fitzgerald reviewed Alta Peak Trail

    One of my favorite hikes ... complete it once every year. It has a couple places which make you work. The last face definitely makes you work for the end game ... an absolutely gorgeous view of the Sequoias. If you are adventurous, you can go off trail and scramble down to Pear Lake down below. In the summer, make sure you start out as early a possible because mid afternoon thunderstorms are common in the area. I was stranded in a lightning storm for a couple hours one year. Bring plenty of water when hot as water holes aren't always available.

    Definitely not a trail for someone out of shape. You climb 5300 ft (1 mile) vertical over the first 8 miles. There is no gradual start to the hike. Be propared to work from the start. There are half a dozen or so streams on the way up with multiple lakes / ponds once up at the pass. The view is beautiful.

    Michael Fitzgerald reviewed Sunset Rock

    This is definitely not a moderate hike - my then 3 yo (the first time there) had not problem with this. I love this hike as it is a great place for kids to get their energy out without taking then on a huge hike. Sunset rock had a wonderful view on clear days. Great place for a picnic. Have seen deer each time there and a bear one time.
