From Hoodsport, 14 miles north on U.S. 101 to Forest Service Road 25. Turn left and drive 12 miles to the Putvin Historical Marker. The trail is on the right side of the road.

Much harder than I expected. Be prepared for a very steep climb, but the views will make it all worth it. Even with a bit of smoke in the air from the fires I couldn't imagine better views. Chiming in with everyone else on here the hike is longer than it states above. We measured the length and for us it came out a little over 10 miles. Keep an eye out for mountain goats around the lake at the end. And last of all least go left after the first lake you see, not right.

It's a hard climb but the reward is worth it I recommend a life straw or a water filter of some sort to enjoy the stream water

A friend of mine and myself were camping on the stream near the trail head and decided to hike it the next day and to our surprise it was a fantastic hike! Extremely steep in sections! Absolutely beautiful views once out of the trees.
