I enjoyed this one! I made it to the bridge with the waterfall and turned back so a total of 5.8 miles round trip. Very scenic and magical.

I loved the photography here! Very easy hike, and definitely a great spot to easily access for sunset or sunrise if staying near by.

I did this trail on 6/14 to 6/16. Awesome scenery, full of green and water sources (the hike follows Quinalt River), so you don't have to take any water with you just the bottle with your filtration system. Bear canisters were required but available for free at the Ranger Station. We did 10 miles in the first day and
camped at Pyrite Campsite, by the river. Very pleasant site. It had a rock-fire-pit and some "tree-benches" to sit on. following day we hiked 4 miles to get to the valley. At the valley there are 2 very raw outpost restrooms around the chalet. didn't rain at all despite weather forecast saying it would. I really enjoyed this hike and recommend it

Such amazing views and a beautiful place to be. It is definitely a popular spot to be at so if you are looking for some solitude I'd suggest going fairly early.

The sites are unbeatable. Tide pools are great. Drift wood burns quickly. Camp right next to the ocean with caution for high tide. This is not an actual "trail". It's a beach scramble through loose sand, and a lot of gallon sized rocks to large boulders. More walking on big rocks than on sand. Some areas are not passable at high tide. Many areas are quite slippery. Don't think you can go more than 10 miles per day.

A very nice place/beach to visit. Have a picnic there.

Peaceful. Beautiful. Family Friendly. Sun was shining with a cool breeze blowing. Logs are a bit overwhelming as there are many and all together but not all the same size or stable. Awesome large rocks In water make for a pretty background.

Peaceful, lightly populated, beautiful, light rainfall, easy hike and family friendly.

Use caution crossing logs. Beautiful setting but challenging to get photos without people stepping into shot. Well worth the visit.

Hiked to 5 mile island a very easy 10 mile out and back. Super populated trail that leads all the way to Mt Olympus.

Great train in Olympic forest , peaceful

This is an extremeley beautiful, but treacherous hike during this part of the year (Early June)

BEWARE:
Please come prepared with adequate winter equipment and gear. Also, bring appropriate camping materials to stay the night (or several) if you intend to do the full loop. Current conditions are icy and snow ridden. Snow levels are several feet deep starting from Deer Lake and increase progressively as you start to approach the High Divide. Most of the trail is hidden beneath the snow. Elevation gain is steep and high, so be sure to possess a fair amount of fitness before attempting this trail. Bring plenty of food and water.

Have an amazing time!

Short little walk in a pretty forest. Easy to do. Everyone should walk it

We hiked only to the first stop, Tim Creek. Which is actually a gorgeous waterfall! Not too bad, a few up hill sections, but has ‘stairs’ built in to help. Would love to go farther some time, but had a two year old in tow. Definitely a beautiful scene!

Just, WOW! No wonder this beach is so popular. We could have stayed here all day and kind of wish we did—lots of families there with beach towels and picnics set up. Make sure to do the entire loop if you’re looking for some solitude, most of the families seemed to stay right near where the trail meets the beach. We went this weekend and had to climb over a decent amount of logs to get to the sand, keep this in mind if you or someone in your group would have trouble navigating this.

Easy trail with interesting forest views. We had a 5 yr old with us and she had a good time.
The trail info center was small, it did have a National Park Passport stamp.

I've done this hike twice. It's an amazing backpacking trip, especially if you just sit at the Chalet and either enjoy a meal there or stay overnight. Beautiful views!

Stunning views of Mt Olympus
Not to be missed!!

Easy hike with beautiful lush scenery. Short and great if you only have 15-20 minutes to explore.

Beautiful trail! The views are amazing the whole time. stop off and have a snack at Pony Bridge and sit in awe of the river and majesty of the forest!!

this trail is washed out .have to find the trail just to countinue farther.

Nice hike for someone who has limited fitness and mobility who wants to enjoy the outdoors and get a sampling of what the Hoh Rain Forest has to offer.

We went up and crossed over the falls and returned via the road to the hot springs resort. There were very few other people out on a Friday—the weather was lovely and there were some great views. Be prepared to cross some shallow rapids—a little dicey but just enough to feel like it was a serious hike ;)

Just amazing.

This trail name, tags and it’s reviews are misleading. There’s is no hot spring along it. Don’t waste your time if looking for a hot spring.

Don't let the first half of the trail fool you. Once you get to the river it really opens up and gets beautiful. The tree setting on the Hall of Moss Trail is better but the river area is beautiful and open.

Quick easy hike with some stunning and beautiful trees. Wish it was a bit longer though.

This hike is absolutely STUNNING. There is so much to take in along the way. Road there has a lot of potholes. Highly recommend.

Gorgeous beach. Beautiful views of the ocean and the sea stacks. A very short walk down from the parking lot, and then across the driftwood and onto the beach. A very pleasant walk. In low tide a lot of by-the-wind sailor jellyfish were washed out onto the sand.
