From Aberdeen, drive west 9 miles to Wynoochee River Road Gust before Montesano. Turn left and drive 33 miles to Forest Service Road 2270. Go straight on Forest Service Road 2270 and drive 12 miles to Forest Service Road 2270-400. Turn right and drive 2 miles to the trailhead.

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.

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.
