From Port Angeles, North 2 miles on Race Street. Road turns into Mount Angeles Road, veer right at fork, continue for 5 miles to trailhead before entrance to the national park.

We did this hike August 5th 2018, we started from the other end to Lake Angela and to Khallane ridge trail and to Heather Park Trial, so 12.6miles not 15miles, over 8hours with breaks. Stunning views with all different type geographical makeups, forests, saw a herd of mountain goats. Very challenging around Khallane ridges and part of heather park trails. Worth every step and sweat’

This trail is an amazing workout in the forest. The trail climbs up steeply. There are several switchbacks but they are usually short. At the end of March, there was slippery, iced over snow on the trail starting at about 2 miles in.

I didn't really want to give stars because I didn't get a good enough feel. we started our hike at the trail head with 6, 7, 9,9, and 13 year olds. we only made it about 1.5 miles round trip because trees were falling all over the place at around 2100 feet up. what we saw was beautiful, but it wasn't worth risking injury.

The "Half Way" rock is mis marked on the trail map. It is a little further up the hill. Good workout, 1180' elevation gain just to half way rock. Pretty rain forest environment.

Gorgeous views for a short trail. Very steep and lots of scree!

Ran from Heather Park Trail and loop through Lake Angeles Trail (8-4-2014). This is a national park that allows one to see snowed mtn on one side and ocean on the other. Incredible views and flowers and what true colors of green is about. The loose rock and switch back near the ridge lines were somewhat dangerous to backpackers IMHO. It's an incredible place such that I missed my flight that evening because of difficulty, driving distance, and Skagit traffic consists of 4-wheels on I-5.
