Nice trail in Olympic National Forest up to to Lake Lena. Moderate climb. Dogs are allowed, but be careful not to follow the trail to Upper Lake Lena, it is part of Olympic National Park and dogs aren't allowed on trails in the park. There are several switchbacks which make it a moderate climb. The trail is very well kept and it is BEAUTIFUL! Expect company, it is a very popular trail. You will need a Recreation pass to park at the trailhead.

Hiked this today with our 9 year old daughter, and had a great time, although we goofed up and thought the end of the trail was the lookout point. Apparently we were wrong, I guess if you keep going you get all the way to the lake. So kinda sad that we missed out on that. Also do not be fooled by the name! Lol LOWER does not mean it is not high up! Lol. This hike was ALL uphill! and very rocky. But it was a very cool hike. We loved it very much. great work out forsure. I would definatly wear hiking boots because of all the rocks. all in all a great day. Also it's dog friendly, but I would honestly feel bad bringing my pup on this trail, it would probably hurt his paws.
