Excellent conditions, all water crossings minor. a dozen trees down from TH to Wynoochee Pass. Signs at the pass are on the ground (2). A nice day hike to the pass and back (approx 8.4 miles total).

Visited 9/2/18. Confusing turn on 2270 somewhere between 10-11 miles or so. Take left over bridge. Do not take straight/slight right into 2270-300. Scree starts the hike for 150 ft or so. Enter ONP about half mile after trailhead. Old growth, waterfalls, perhaps not exactly “easy.” A solid Olympic National Park hike.

First to Review

We hiked this trail from the 2270 - 400 road, above Wynoochee Lake, beginning late, around 2 pm. It was a hike full of beautiful scenery and rugged terrain. Some side-slope scrambling, lots of roots and rock outcrops in the trail and several "interesting" stream crossings. There was only a little snow left near the pass and we turned back at 5 o'clock without quite reaching the pass. My feet became sore going downhill on the return trip so it was 6:45 by the time we returned to the truck for our drive home. I look forward to returning later this Summer to hike to Sundown Lake and back.
