Peabody creek trail has a half mile loop at the bottom, but it connects to a three mile out and back that ends on Hurricane Ridge road. From there the hiker can either return the way they came or hike down the road. This trail follows and crosses Peabody Creek.

There is a bathroom at the visitor center open during business hours

Drive to the national park visitor center in Port Angeles. The trail starts from that parking lot.

Hiking

A cool shaded trail with a few people (I encountered about 15 people). I loved the old forest with lots of vegetation. (Beware of stinging nettle). I loved that this trail paralleled and crossed over the creek - very zen vibe. One minor problem I had was my downloaded map did not correspond with the trail I hiked. I took the trail marked by the park service as Peabody Creek Trail. I had to turn off the “off trail alert” because it kept notifying me. The marked park trail paralleled the downloaded...anyway, this is my new favorite trail and I hope to return in a few weeks as the leaves put on their autumn colors

Nice Place to Meander and get "Lost". Cool Old Bridge. Nice Place to Observe Deciduous Autumn Foliage.

HikingGreat!

Really enjoyed this trail and the feeling of being surrounded by nature all the time, with multiple bridges. Not very busy well maintained trail starts from visitor center.

Gorgeous dog friendly trail in the Olympic NP!! We only passed three people the entire time. Would recommend hiking boots.

Very muddy trail, close to the road at times, and just ends at the road.

The starting location given on the map is inside of a NPS maintenance operations yard. Instead, drive to the nearby National Parks Visitor's center and look for a sign that says Peabody Creek Trail 1/2 mile Loop. This connects to the Peabody Creek Trail.

The trail is pretty to walk on because you’re basically walking along the creek, but it just ends at the road. There are some cool log bridges and pretty creek scenery, but there is no end view. Probably really fun for kids to do with the creek so close.

Parked in the visitor center parking lot. There was some elevation gain but overall it was pretty gradual. We walked at a slower pace and it took just under 3 hours. It was a little muddy / slick to start but to be expected this time of year. Primarily shaded trial filled with huge trees. There was also a lot of slugs, mushrooms, and bridges to cross over.

we took the trail from where the app directions brought us and that trail lead to the visitors center and we took another loop trail there called forest something trail behind the visitors center which was very short and then from the visitors center got back on the loop trail back to where we started. altogether it only ended up being 2 miles so kind of disappointed that the trails didn't lead to anything longer.

Very scenic right behind visitor center. Only did the short loop to work out the kinks of a long drive before going up to Hurricane Ridge.

Nice trail well maintained. Up and down trail hills with switchbacks, through forest along creek, several log bridges that cross the creek.
