Situated on the Olympic Peninsula, this park ranges from Pacific shoreline with tide pools to temperate rainforests to Mount Olympus. The glaciated Olympic Mountains overlook the Hoh Rain Forest and Quinault Rain Forest, the wettest area of the continental United States.

Started at 11:00AM and got the top at 1:00PM. Shedded a few layers on the way up and put them back on at the peak. A little cloudy but when the sun peaks through over Cresent Lake it was amazing. Definitely don't suggest continuing past the peak, we went farther and turned around after it got too dangerous to get to the top. The ropes we're fun and enjoyable part of the hike and I would highly recommend this hike for someone looking for a thrilling and awarding hike. Also you can stop by Marymere falls once you get back down or before you go up.

Nice loop thru the forest. Some big old growth trees and skirts the river for a little. I like the Hall of Moss trail at the visitor center slightly better but if you go there do them both !

This is a beautiful trail. So green. The maple grove draped in long moss is stunning. There are many old growth trees that are enormous. The creek area is gorgeous. Elk sometimes show in the area (I didn't see them). I'm shocked this doesn't have 5 stars.

Easy walk thru the forest to a waterfall.

Very nice trail. Amazing scenery. It took us about 9 hours. I suggest you carry GPS with you on this trail as there are quite a few "Y" shape trail splits and its not clear which trial is the main. Spotted 6 black bears within half mile distance from Heart lake.

Excellent trail, though it can get quite busy. Once at the falls, if you have some time you should also walk a little bit on Lovers' Lane trail for views from the opposite side of the river.

Only completed a portion of this trail coming off the High Divide to spend the day down at the lake. The fairly steep climb down and back up was well worth the diversion from the initial plans.

Nice trail. View from top is nice.
