awesome well shaded trail. definitely not hard it was more moderate. the view of lake Blanche is beautiful and if you walk a few hundred yards more to the right of the lake there are two more lakes.

My neighbour and I decided to hike Mt. Olympus after work. We started close to 5pm and finished around 10:30pm. I won't lie -- the trail is very steep, but we found it manageable. It had us breathing hard and taking short breaks. The views at the top were worth all that effort. Coming down in the dark we spotted two tarantulas, not to mention some gigantic beetles! We may have also startled a small owl with our headlamps coming through the low trees. It hovered silently right in front of me for a few seconds. In truth we startled each other. Very cool trek, and a great experience seeing the wildlife at night time.

on Donut Falls Trail

Was a great hike but can be hard for smaller children to get up to the donut because you have to climb up some steep rocks. Other than that it was awesome.

Started at the top and did about 2 miles of it then had to turn around because it was getting dark. On Monday I plan on hiking this entire thing & cant wait ! Did not gain a ton of elevation on the part I did which was the last 2 miles of the trail or so. Relatively easy & flat

Hiked up to and beyond Willow Lake yesterday morning. The wildflowers were in full glory on this trail through the aspen forest, around, and above the lake. The first 1/2 mile is a strong moderate climb. But once to the top of the aspen forest, it is an easy hike. Take the loop around the lake for additional views!
