Excellent trail in great shape. My 5-star rating was influenced due to it being a sunny, cloudy-free day allowing views for miles plus the flowers were in full bloom. The trail makes you work hard enough to feel the views are well earned. You will appreciate your hiking sticks going up & returning the last 1/2 mile. I hiked to the base of the hard rock scramble but did not head to the peak. The “view reward” at the base was excellent for stopping for lunch with Mt Olympus at center stage. I didn’t want to leave the spot. No one else was there except flies buzzing around me while I ate but they were not biting. l hiked on 8/11/20.

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!

I wouldn’t rate this trail as hard. It’s pretty easy, unless you’re scared of heights or get vertigo. If you’re not looking to go all the way to mount Angeles, there’s a great high point lookout right before you start to descent into the forest that would make a great turnaround point. Great views and well maintained trail. No bear sightings but we did see deer and marmots. Hiked 8/10

This was my favorite trail in Olympic National Park, I would definitely recommend! It has great views all the way up to sunset point!

Loved this hike! It’s other worldly for the first mile or so, given the dense rainforest. The lake is peaceful- so much wildlife to observe in an area less impacted by humans. The trail is lightly trafficked for those looking to unplug, get away from people and stay safe from Covid. However! Bears are in this area! There are signs at the trailhead indicating high bear activity. We came upon a bear on trail, standing about 5ft. From us! He was skiddish and ran from us when we made noise. Be aware, cautious with food storage, and understand bear safety!

Beautiful lake. The first mile is fairly easy until you get to the log bridge. The hike gets pretty deep as you make your way up. Make sure you pack a bottle of bug spray. We stopped for lunch at the lake at around 11:30am. We saw tiny trouts at the water edge, big ones jumping all over the place. Will definitely be back!

HikingGreat!

We arrived around 11am on a saturday, small wait to enter the park (the line was much longer when we were leaving). There were plenty of parking spots when we arrived at the trailhead. Unfortunately, it was heavy overcast while we were there, but I would imagine the views would be beautiful on a clearer day. A nice paved path around made for a quick walk. Most people wore makes, but a few did not. Trail is wide enough in most spots to keep your distance.

Beautiful views from the trail. Hiked clockwise on August 5. However, past the lakes is a very technical exposed scree trail. I would only recommend hiking this trail if you have experiencing with steep, unstable ground. Next time I might make it an out-and-back to avoid the rock climbing and scree scrambling.

This is an amazing hike. Be prepared to be exhausted at the end. Beautiful wild flowers almost the whole way. Once you fork off to get to Mt. Angeles it gets very steep but my 5 & 8 year old made it (they have been hiking since they can walk in Colorado). We were zombies on the drive home.

Good solid climb. Scenery for the first third is pretty. After that, it isn’t so much. Lake at the top is very nice. Overall a good workout. Make sure you have bug spray.

I actually enjoyed the sights of the trail a lot of you’re a fan of mossy green and a rocky trails. I strongly advise to wear hiking boots and maybe use hiking poles to help you keep balance, especially when walking back down.

Easy to lose the trail as it gets near the the top. Generally, keep left. Turning up too soon routes into very steep and loose paths.

Nice hike but not a lot lot of scenery on the way up. Trail was super easy to follow and was a steady challenging climb all the way to the top.

Did this hike on 7/21/20. Amazing views just from the parking lot! These views get even better as the hike continues. Wildflowers are in full bloom too which really added to the aesthetic. We did the full hike. So we deviated from the trail to get to the lookout point and then free climbed (literally) to the top of Mount Angeles. To get to the lookout point was extremely difficult. The trail is VERY steep for like 45 minutes. We were dying once we got to the top. Once we could breathe again we decided to continue upwards. This trail is even steeper than the previous one. We had no equipment so were sliding and falling up the gravel. Once we got to Mount Angeles we just started climbing as we didn’t see a clearly marked trail. We may have taken a more dangerous way because we were legitimately free climbing up this mountain. It was pretty scary actually, especially once we got to the top! Views were worth it though! On the way back we were SO dead and tired! It made the trek back pretty rough. Highly recommend the first hard part but maybe omit climbing mount Angeles.
