Went to Moose Lake via Lillian Ridge and was pleased with the overall experience. The trail was in great shape. Had to go over some snowfields but it was fine with hiking pole and boots. Beautiful view of the interior of the Olympic Mountains. Will do the loop next time which is part of this trail system. The forest service did a great job with the rocky areas making it decent. This is a moderate to above moderate trail in my opinion. I didn’t see a post for Moose Lake on your site and would appreciate if you included that hike. I am going to buy the pro version so I can be more certain about my options while on the trail. If I had we would have hiked back on the route provided in this hike listing.

Only went 1.4 miles down from the trailhead (about 700 feet elevation loss). Steep, narrow, very rocky trail in spots with no shade in that 1.4 miles. The trail is considered a “primitive trail” by the National Park Service. Not a fan of hikes that begin with big descents, with climbing out/ascending ahead of you. Valley is pretty. Obstruction Point Road a bit scary at times. No shade at all on long sections of the trail. Bring sunscreen and a hat or hoody that covers your ears and sides of your face.
