bridge out

It appears as if one of the bridges has been blow out and it requires some creative problem solving to cross the river. Trail itself is beautiful and waterfalls provide incredible scenery. Little bit of mud but very manageable.

road is closed to the trail.

Such a gorgeous hike. In my top 5 to show family when they come into the area. Good for kids who are used to following trail etiquette. The trail will be damp, if not muddy, but this is a rainforest so come prepared for rain.

Beautiful! The road is closed 6 miles out but you can drive around the sign. 5 miles out there is a road gate that is closed. National Park service issuing courtesy tickets to those parking one mile in. It is a beautiful walk to the trail but 6 miles (12 round trip) is a long way for the short trail. The road in though is very scenic! The actual trail is nice and very pretty in the middle.

Great hike. Bridge coming back from campground is down it crossable using trees. The campground had many fallen trees but safe as long as no workers cutting at same time.

Beach 1 and 2 were closed off due to COVID-19 closures. We were able to park and utilize the Beach 3 trailhead just a few miles north though.

Beautiful however they are STILL closed. Don’t waste your time a ranger will come and tell you they are closed. Make sure they are open forsure because google maps says they are. Luckily the ranger was nice and didn’t give us a ticket or anything. Can’t wait for when it is actually open. Will be going back forsure.

It would be heaven without mosquitoes here.

Absolutely gorgeous. Lots of majestic views. You start in thick forest and end up in alpine scenery. I would do it over and over again.

Road to trail head is closed. With 6 miles left to drive up to it, there’s a closure barrier on the road. If you have a bike, you could still go, or by foot, if you wanted a 12 mile walk to a 1 mile loop trail. Its still 11 miles of a pretty scenic drive until you hit the closure. And some mountains in the background on the Hoh river

Fantastic. One of the most unique beaches I’ve seen as far as rock formations. Wait for the sunset if able.

Great trail with a beautifully clear stream, moss covered arc tree, rainforest humidity, and banana slugs. Lots of fun... a long ride from the main road.

Keep an eye out for banana slugs!

Entry fee is waived until further notice. Bathrooms are clean accessible. Beautiful short hike. Cougar and elk country.

Was a spectacular short hike. Saw a raccoon, bald eagle, and otters fishing in the surf. Just be mindful of the tide. You can go down thru the hole, but have to be patient if you got there around high tide.

Very very short. I’d pair this with another day hike if possible.

Beautiful beach. Went on a week day and only saw a couple people. Would recommend wearing galoshes so you can wade over the water and get a bit further down the beach in the cooler months like March.

nice trail with the majority of the incline at the beginning. Well marked and beautiful forest view. Went the dogs and everyone did great.

Great 3-day backpack in late August of 2019. Lots of bears. No bugs. Views can’t be beat. Rain the first night then lots of sun on the Divide. We did the loop counter-clockwise and I would recommend that as the clockwise version would be a long, steep ascent to Heart Lake/ High Divide. The trail is a little difficult to follow where the “geological disturbance” has completely obliterated the ground/ trail. We missed the turn off to Lunch Lake, but that was ok as we had a long way to go for night two camping reservations. (Tip: Make your reservations early in the year!!!) Heart Lake is gorgeous. Probably my favorite part of the trip. Lots of bears around there and the 7-lakes basin. Once we were on the High Divide we got a little disoriented though and weren’t sure where Heart Lake was exactly. If you do the loop counterclockwise, when you are on the High Divide, the 7-lakes basin will be on your left and Mt Olympus off in the distance to your right. Heart Lake is beyond the farthest ridgeline straight head. You can’t see it from the High Divide until you get beyond this far ridgeline and start to descend. It’s further than you think, but obvious when you make it around the ridgeline. Heart Lake sits in a beautiful basin of its own, and is shaped exactly like a heart. And what a way to end a 3-day backpack with a soak in the mineral rich hot springs resort just up the road from the trailhead!!! Don’t forget to bring a towel, change of clothes and your swim suit for lunch, shower and a soak at the hot springs resort. (They even provide body wash for free if you ask.). We are going back in 2020, adding a stay at Lunch Lake this time.

Very nice and well maintained park. Parking was about a quarter full on a weekend during the off season so it felt nice and peaceful here. We saw a herd of Elk right off the trail- it was magical!

Great area, can be a little busy on a weekend. Would always check updated tide charts when planning what time to go so you can spend the time there that you want.

Really fun and clean beach. The tree of life is worth the stop!

Kinda cool, but a long drive for .9 walk around. The Black Forest before the ranger station was really cool.

Very beautiful and secluded! An adventure to drive here right now. Generally easy to navigate though there are a few unmarked spots where the trail has been changed (original one washed out). Very muddy and a few flooded spots but nothing surprising for a rainforest. Requires creek crossings without bridges, so might not be passable year round. We made it about 4 miles out before reaching a spot where you need to climb up a muddy cliff with a rope above a raging river and had a great time!
