Part of trail next to lake was flooded (just west of the Quinalt Lodge). This forced us to walk along the highway until we reached the campground (about .4 miles). Otherwise a great hike.

Very easy and beautiful trail. Took us about 2 hours (mostly slow walk).

Beautiful hike. Inclines are a bit harder but most of the loop is perfect for the novice hikers like me.

Nice loop trail in the old rainforest. The guide said 4 miles but we walked closer to 5.1. Granted we took the Gatton trail to start--the ranger suggest this was a better route. ...I guess it added more distance than I expected. Still we really enjoyed this walk through the rainforest. The 5 year old did great but he was starting to drag a bit by the end.

As of June 2, 2016, South Shore Road is washed out 2.6 miles from the East Fork trailhead. This has cut off access to the Graves Creek Campground by vehicles, so plan accordingly. A temporary parking lane has been established along South Shore Road south of the road closure.
