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.

Enchanted valley is worth every mile to get to it! We skipped the lollipop and just did out and back with some day hiking. There's water all along the trail so easy to travel light. Recommend a lunch break at ONiel and you can make the valley in a day's hike.

lovely easy hike

This trail was great, it gets you awake from the crowds of the NP, and allows for a quieter experience on the trail. The path is very wide and some areas are even good for a jogging stroller, I saw dogs on leash, and several bikers. Very multi purposeful. There were some areas where large rocks had fallen or a tree that hadn't been maintenanced yet, but it wasn't impossible to move around. When you get to the tunnel, go to the trail on the left that goes around, to view the bridge. Gorgeous views of the lake! The bathroom at the trailhead was pretty dank and nasty (maybe go elsewhere).

This was a fantastic way to spend a Sunday! We were not the only ones on the trail it is true, but it certainly wasn’t crowded. Pit toilets are open at the parking lot/trailhead. The trail is very well maintained with no downed trees to mention. Not much water in the certain spots of the creek- but very beautiful and serene. Plenty of benches along the way for a rest or just to enjoy the view. We did not go up the Ellinore trail but hope to go back on a clear day for what is said to be a killer view. It is steep I won’t lie- but it is doable for any level hiker- slow and steady will get you there! We went clockwise - going up steeper but coming down more gradually. Take the trail marked confluence trail for the small falls and many bridges. Many nice spots for a picnic lunch on your hike. With several short stops for photos and our explorative lunch, we spent 3.5-4 hours. Perfect half day adventure in Sheltons backyard!

Easy and gorgeous! Nice that it’s a full loop. Recommended.

Enchanted rain forest until Martin’s Creek + best view you can ever imagine to Blue Glacier.

Hiked the loop with a small dog. Started the loop by going left. Trail was in pristine condition. Very well maintained. Lot of parking space at the trail head for $5/day. Conditions: cloudy. 55-60F. Low traffic: less than 10 people. Moderate difficulty. 2h40 including pauses and lunch. Next time I’ll try the Mt Elinor trail (diificult).

I hiked by myself on Sunday 6/23 and got on the trail a bit after 9 am. I only saw one other person on the way out and he was coming down. I didn’t see anyone else on the trail and after getting about 2/3rds of the way out was too creeped out to keep going alone so I turned around. I also slipped on the bridge over the creek so be careful until you’re all the way off. Seemed like a fun hike and I found the uphill to be a fun workout. Wish I could have seen the lake. I only saw one other hiker on the way down.

Easy, nice, paved!

Nice hike, stunning view in the end! Not for beginners.

Just incredible. Don’t forget to stop at beach 4. A little less crowded than Ruby Beach. My wife’s favorite place in Washington.

Stopped off here to get a short hike done before continuing our drive from Olympia to Ruby Beach. This fit the bill nicely. Great place for a hike and a sandwich. Amazing beauty.

Went today! Awesome easy trail. I wasn’t sure where the trail loops around so I went back when it split by 3 trails. Beautiful hike, beautiful drive.

After camping at lower Lena Lake, I hiked up to upper Lena Lake with 5 scouts. The trail was in great condition. There are a few rock scrambles and muddy areas, but all in all, it was a fun hike. Good coverage to the top. Ran into about 6 people on the trail so pretty quiet and fun. Will make Upper Lena lake a full pack hike in the future.

This trail was definitely worth the struggle coming back up. The lake was absolutely beautiful and there were plenty of waterfalls along the way. You have to cross several creeks and one is obstructed by a fallen tree that you have to figure out how to cross yourself. You will definitely work up a sweat during this hike!

It’s definitely a hard trail. Take plenty of water, wear the right gear and you will set! It’s up hill so be prepared! We took frequent stops, but it was enjoyable.

Very nice hike though with the low rainfall this year, the mosses seemed dried out and less verdant. Preferred Spruce Trail, especially as it worked it’s way along the Hoh River bank.

wow, view and views..

Amazing hike along the Sol Duc. Great trail and majestic forest

Beautiful falls!

great trail. dogs are definitly allowed (they're actually allowed off leash if they're responsive).

Well groomed trail. Dog friendly first 1.1 mile, until ONP Beautiful, forested hike along river

Highly recommend taking some sturdy gloves for coming down from the rocks at the top. Allows you to use your hands and sorta slide down. At least I found it helpful. The top of Mount Storm King is unforgettable and I had the whole place to myself last Jan. morning. Heard it gets crowded though.

mountain biking
washed out
5 days ago

Trail is washed out about mile or so from the closed gate. There is a short trail to get around washout. I had to pick my bike up over some logs and push up some hills but it’s mostly paved road to the Hot Springs. It was a fantastic trip. The ride back is almost all downhill. I was flying down that mountain at speeds of up to 35mph.

Beautiful meadow at the end! Lots of switchbacks at the beginning to Lower Lena. Once you get on the Upper trail it’s gets much tougher. Sections that are VERY steep for a mile or so at a time. A few narrow sections, but nothing too crazy. Even saw a little girl about 10yrs old carrying her own pack with her parents. Atta girl!! Plenty of shade and spots to rest. Great views along the way. Predetermined campsites set up to hang bear bags. Didn’t see much wildlife. Totally recommend
