Easy, not many people, but make sure to be ready to climb up with rope. Stunning view

Camped one night at Flapjack Lakes then day hiked to Gladys Divide next morning (definitely recommend doing this!). A huge cedar fell overnight across the trail just this side of Madeline creek. It was so fresh, some debris was still falling. We were able to throw packs over and climb over. Long but blissful day!

HikingGreat!

The drive to the trailhead was beautiful. I was a bit confused about where exactly the trailhead started. The beginning of the trail is wide, but quickly narrows when you approach Silver Creek. For about a quarter of a mile, the trail is hard to see due to foliage and I laughed a few times because I thought I was certainly lost. I hiked at around 6am so everything was covered is dew. I was soaked by the time I arrived to the start of the forest. Silver Lake slowly shows itself as you come around the final bend. Beautiful. I didn’t haven a problem with flies and hung out there for about 30 minutes. On your way back down, make sure to turn at the right spot so you don’t end up taking the trail up the neighboring mountain. Download the map and make sure you’re on the right trail periodically.

The hike was incredible. Unfortunately a group took down the ropes saying that they were “frayed” and they were “saving lives”. I hope nobody was left stranded up top or down below - bad karma.

HikingGreat!

This was my favorite hike in Olympic Park!! Absolutely gorgeous. It’s not long but steep - so be ready for a work out! The waterfall right before you reach the lake was beautiful and the lake.. wow!! So clean, calm and peaceful. Wish I had more time to just sit and chill there (plan to give yourself some time to admire this beauty!!).

HikingGreat!

Beautiful! We arrived in the afternoon on a Tuesday and had to park along the road a little ways from the lot but still worth it. Trail was easy with little to no elevation gain. It was fairly busy as we saw many other groups, most of which were wearing masks. Once you get to the falls there are other small paths to explore that get you on the rocks near the falls. Just be very careful as some can be slippery. Worth the short walk for sure!

HikingGreat!

Beautiful trail that goes through a lush valley with meadows and wild flowers. Saw a couple of marmots and quail, which was pretty cool. Definitely not an easy hike if you do the out and back option since on your way back you're going uphill the whole time. The only downside to the whole experience is the terrifyingly narrow gravel road you take to get 15k+ feet up to the trail head.

Nature tripsFeeGreat!

Nice short trail, expect a few steps but no real incline. Little picnic area at the actual falls and then the trails to the campground. Fairly busy for a Tuesday at 1, parking was down the road but we snagged a spot up top. Cooler falls than Marymere down the road.

HikingFeeGreat!Off trail

Hiked 8/11/20 -Tuesday. Got there around 745 and lot was pretty empty but PACKED to the roads by 1130 when we got down. Hike is 97% incline the entire time. View from the last viewpoint and “official” and are both spectacular. Did the ropes to the top and they’re as tough as you’d think. Probably 7 different ropes of varying lengths and thickness. Yes gloves would have been nice but survived without and without poles. Top view absolutely amazing!!!

Solid hike, was probably worst experience in Olympic in regards to people not wearing masks or even coming close to caring about Covid.

Decent. Washout part is the only thing making this not moderate. As stated below, go slow and it's fine. Much easier on the way back when it's uphill.

Hiking

The road up was holier than the Vatican until the last 1-2 miles There is an old and a new trail head and if you expand the all trail map you can find the new trailhead which is in better shape and is marked by the sign “Silver Lake Way Trail “. Bring insect repellent. On the way back the map wanted to take us to the old trailhead so be careful of this ( worst case may need to walk a short distance down the road) Both trail head meet about ½ mile to form the main trail which was rocky and with lots of roots—- really need to watch where you step—- We were happy we used hiking poles for the steep downhills and we dug out our gloves for one very steep downhill with lots of small trees to grab to slow our descent Didn’t meet many people on the trail and the trail and lake were beautiful Enjoyed the trail

Beautiful trail. Easy to get away from people with lots of spurs to the river. Only went in about 2.5 miles. Would love to do more and spend a night or two.

It was a short, beautiful, cool shaded trail with small elevation gain . We went today ( Monday) early about 9am. Plenty of parking and not a lot of traffic.

HikingGreat!

I went with my friends on this trail, but definitely too difficult for a new hiker like myself. I managed to get to the part right before the ropes but didn’t go up because I was scared of falling off the cliff as the trail gets very narrow towards the end. My friends went up there and enjoyed the view of both lakes and the wild birds on top. I was really glad that I went on this hike and made that far, it boosted my confidence in hiking. Other hikers were very patient and encouraging when they had to wait for me to pass :) bring hiking pole and gloves for the rope!

The reward is worth the work! This has been on my list for years and I finally decided to just do it! I’m definitely not an avid hiker or super physically fit. This was a struggle for this slightly-pudgy mom of 4 who isn’t as active as she once was. I had to take a lot of breaks and push through the jello-legs. The reviews that say this is steep the whole way aren’t kidding. I did it, though, and it was beautiful. I stalked the weather report for days, trying to ensure we would have a clear and sunny sky to see the lake! It’s very pretty the first 1-1.5 miles and then it’s steep and pretty devoid of scenery up through the forest and switch backs until you come out to the lake. Some clouds moved in while we were there but quickly moved on. I was the only person who swam in the lake. It’s cold but felt amazing. Just an absolutely beautiful location. Bring bug spray though! There are tons of them.

HikingGreat!

Hard trail, but awesome! maybe take gloves for the ropes - not a necessity. make sure everything on your person is secure as you go up. I saw two people drop their water and a phone that rolled down the hill never to be seen again

Beautiful hike, a bit more challenging than expected due to the obstacles on the trail. Some flat even walking but lots of rocks, roots, mud and interesting small creek crossings! At the Lake enjoyed a nice spot for lunch.
