Nice easy to follow trail, if you are going to Tull Canyon for the B17 wreckage keep an eye on your GPS some recent tree falls make the trail a bit tough to spot. Copper Creek area is another place to have a GPS out. the trail dumps you in a series of open clearings used for camping and there is no defined place to cross the creek. Easy to lose the trail on the other side. Same with some of the switchbacks, there are downed trees on the switchback and easy to follow game trails to lead you astray. I made it to Buckhorn pass before the trail disappeared under 5ft of snow. Will do again in a few months...

Fantastic hike. There are a couple of stream crossings, so I'd definitely recommend waterproof hiking boots, especially if you're going to the plane wreck.

Very cool trail . The snow starts from 4500 feet . I’ll go there one more time in August for sure .

Great first hike to start out the season. Definitely kid friendly and lots of incredible sites. Will definitely be going again but maybe trying out a hike attached to it like wagon wheel lake. The mud slide on the road is cleaned up and can park at the ranger station but the bridge across the creek washed out on the right side of the trail so have to wade through the cold glacier water.

Arrived at 0930 on Monday to see very few other hikers! Once you take the turn at the big rock for the trail your hike (climb) truly begins! Trail was in good condition and glad to find a hike I love with no snow!

For my average condition it was a brutal climb & descent. The ropes weren't too bad but the second one is definitely the sketchy section! More so on the descent. The incredible views were worth it & we spent about 45 minutes on top undisturbed before heading back down!

Beautiful trail! The views are amazing the whole time. stop off and have a snack at Pony Bridge and sit in awe of the river and majesty of the forest!!

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.

We went up and crossed over the falls and returned via the road to the hot springs resort. There were very few other people out on a Friday—the weather was lovely and there were some great views. Be prepared to cross some shallow rapids—a little dicey but just enough to feel like it was a serious hike ;)

Incredible views! Not too long, but the grade definitely makes it challenging. I carried my son up in a carrier backpack so it is by no means unbearably difficult. It’s worth planning ahead and going on a clear day.

Nice short loop near the famous Quinault Lodge, featuring the "World's Largest Spruce Tree." Nice area, nice lodge, great for kids.

Lower half of trail is easy, family and dog friendly. Upper half of trail is steep, narrow, and huge drop off on one side. Made me very nervous with my dog, and would not recommend for nervous mothers of small children. Awesome views and a great work out though!!

Beautiful hike. Currently 30weeks pregnant and got pretty winded at times but overall it wasn’t too bad. Great trail to bring my dog on as well.

This trail name, tags and it’s reviews are misleading. There’s is no hot spring along it. Don’t waste your time if looking for a hot spring.

Don't let the first half of the trail fool you. Once you get to the river it really opens up and gets beautiful. The tree setting on the Hall of Moss Trail is better but the river area is beautiful and open.

Quick easy hike with some stunning and beautiful trees. Wish it was a bit longer though.

This hike is absolutely STUNNING. There is so much to take in along the way. Road there has a lot of potholes. Highly recommend.

Gorgeous beach. Beautiful views of the ocean and the sea stacks. A very short walk down from the parking lot, and then across the driftwood and onto the beach. A very pleasant walk. In low tide a lot of by-the-wind sailor jellyfish were washed out onto the sand.

Magnificent nature at its best. Feels wonderful to be among all those beautiful trees and the views of the river are so peaceful and amazing.

I just talked to the national parks people and they said you can park and hike in at the construction but that they can not guarantee that you can pass the current construction they are doing at that time. It all depends on what they are doing that day and there is no way to know without going all the way up.

A leg burner for sure, and great cardio workout. Views left a little to be desired and there are better hikes in the area. But great to be outside nonetheless.

Stunning views and one heck of a workout! Don't let the distance fool you, this trail makes you earn that view. Last section with the ropes was more disconcerting than I thought it would be. An element of danger present for sure. As others have said, bring plenty of water and sturdy shoes. Both will be needed.

Relaxing walk. Well maintained trails. Unfortunately, I did the Hoh rain forest walk first, the view wasn’t that impressive after doing the Hoh.

Very nice walk. Not intense at all. Awesome forest full of huge trees over hundreds years old. Highly recommended.

route is very well defined which was great because I had to do the first leg in the dark.hike is nice and camps have great views of the mighty pacific this was a lot of fun.

Hiked the East Fork Quinault River Trail from the Graves Creek Trailhead to Pyrites on day one (4-23-18). Then back to O'Neil Creek Camp for day two and out on day three. I wanted to go on to the Enchanted Valley on day one, but I could not make it with my 60 year old legs along with the challenging rocky trails, that test your ankles, and the many blow-downs on the trail. It is a beautiful forest trail with an amazing amount of coverage and shade. Many sounds, tracks and signs of wildlife. Although I saw many Elk on the way to the trail head driving in, I never saw any hiking, nor did I see any bear. Camping along the creek is fantastic with a deep sleep provided by the sound of the water. I will return with a lighter pack, stronger legs and a greater determination to make the Enchanted Valley.

We saw an elk! Nice, easy stroll to the river. The interpretive signs were informative and interesting to read. The drive to the trail is glorious.

The view is definitely worth it! Bring lots of water and wear proper shoes. There’s a lot of loose dirt and rocks, which makes the descent almost as difficult as the ascent. Once you finish the ropes section, the view is off to your left. Don’t continue the trail to the right unless you’re a serious rock climber (with your own ropes and gear).
