fishing
9 days ago

Only did part of the trail, and then followed the river for fishing.

A great place that I’ll need to revisit a few times! We got there a little later in the day so we had less light to work with. Out for about 2 hours and I remember being upset when we agreed to leave because I hadn’t started to feel tired from the hike!

Incredible trail! This trail is about 75% climbing and 25% steep descending. Did as day hike, started as 645am finished 8.5 hrs later, wasn't in a rush and spent some time ar Bocachiel Peak and Heart Lake. Fall was a perfect time to be there, didn't see a single person until the junction for the falls, .8 miles before finishing the day. Some hard pack ice present, can make descending tricky for the 2.1 miles along High Divide to Heart Lake... doable but slow. Only wildlife was a beautiful male mountain goat at trail junction below Bocachiel Peak and a black bear on our drive home near campground A. Views on this hike were extraordinary of Mt. Olympus and Mt. Carrie. Would highly recommend!

Hiked this today, October 28, 2017. Super easy loop, great for any hiker at any level. Like nothing I've ever seen before. I recommend doing the Hall of Moss loop then the Spruce loop. Nice and casual.

camping

Amazing place! I camped just beyond hole in the wall and had it all to myself. This place is a photographers dream! in fact, as I was hiking back I saw a small film crew on the south side of hole in the wall shooting an REI commercial. If you camp here be careful of the tides, they have large swings; also the bugs come out at night, they crawl all over the beach. Best to camp up near or in the tree line, it’s steep though, i camped on top of a huge log that was flat on top, one of the only flat spots. Hammock camping is doable if you bring extra straps, the trees are huge. Another thing to bring is a bear canister, not for the bears, but the raccoons will tear your shizzle up if you don’t. TIP: fresh water via a waterfall located in the rocks at the north end of the beach beyond hole in the wall.

scenic driving

Beautiful drive. It took me three nights to drive it with no specific goals in mind. If you're going to visit I would say cape flattery is definitely a must see. I also went to lake ozette and hoh rain forest and both were very beautiful. Port angeles is really cool place if you need a break from wilderness. I will be back to check out everything I missed the first time around

Nice loop thru the forest. Some big old growth trees and skirts the river for a little. I like the Hall of Moss trail at the visitor center slightly better but if you go there do them both !

This is a beautiful trail. So green. The maple grove draped in long moss is stunning. There are many old growth trees that are enormous. The creek area is gorgeous. Elk sometimes show in the area (I didn't see them). I'm shocked this doesn't have 5 stars.

Very nice trail. Amazing scenery. It took us about 9 hours. I suggest you carry GPS with you on this trail as there are quite a few "Y" shape trail splits and its not clear which trial is the main. Spotted 6 black bears within half mile distance from Heart lake.
