We’ve done this trip on the Harley in late summer and it was beautiful throughout the whole loop!

I did 20 miles of this trail last summer. It was rugged terrain with elevation and many challenges for a first time hiker. The scenery was breathtaking. We woke up one morning at dawn to a deer grazing 5ft from our tent. One she left, we were visited by a coyote. I'm hoping to go back so that we can hike the glacier.

Backpacked this loop on 7/7 - 7/8. Going clock-wise with a long 1st day (15 miles) and camped at Dear Lake, out 2nd day. The trail still has snow at the peak of High Divide but footprints were simple to follow. The basin was still full of snow and all basin lakes were still frozen, which was kinda disappointing. If you plan to come for basin lakes' photos, maybe 2-3 more weeks will be much better.

Beautiful! High traffic on the weekends.

Muddy, overgrown trail with lots of loose rocks and fallen trees. We were warned by other hikers about a beehive near the end, but turned around before we reached it. It's a quiet and scenic hike, but I've never slipped and tripped so much on a trail before, and can't say I really enjoyed it. Take poles and your sturdiest waterproof boots!

Terrain was pretty rough and there was overgrowth in a few places, poles would definitely be good to have. It was very quiet though, and a nice little hike.

Beautiful hike with wonderful views throughout. There are some wet spots, but we got through with just sneakers and stayed dry. Lots of inclines on the way in, so it's sure to get your heart pumping. The views on the bridge are wonderful. Well worth the drive.

Lovely mix of terrain. Mostly flat trail hugging the river. Great views. Mossy trees. Alleged black bear sightings, which we luckily avoided.

Nice walk, shame it wasn't longer.

Beautiful, great for all ages, I would definitely go back

I did 3 days and 2 nights backpacking up Elip creek camp, then crossing over the Elip creek trail and staying at Three prune, I came down the skyline ridge trail to thee lakes and then hiked back to the trail head. It was definitely a challenging trail but fun. With lots of climbing.

Absolutely gorgeous! Trail is well maintained and very easy. It felt like a stroll.

Gorgeous, unique, enjoyable hike! Not too much elevation change. Left from the HOH visitor center and hiked three miles to the waterfall and back. Gorgeous views of Olympic and the hoh river with its unique color. Recommended!!!

Gorgeous, unique and short!

Went on a rainy day, so that might affect my review. There were some really cool rock formations but the rocks on the ground were kind of hard to navigate. Be sure to check the tide charts before you go.

Fantastic coastline!

Pretty and dramatic coast line great tide pools. Hole in the Wall was pretty cool, walking through is fun. Check the tide charts before going, if tide is in you can't walk through the hole, also the walk up top of the beach on loose rocks is a little harder than the hard sand below.

A very easy walk. I suggest walking at a slow pace and taking everything in. It will be over before you know it.

Such big and beautiful trees! Easy hike but a little crowded. Parking was a small ordeal. Overall would recommend it and would do again if in the area.

A short and interesting nature walk in the forest. Starts at Highway 101, across the road from campsite A54 at the Kalaloch Campground.

Great little loop with stunning views

If you are short on time . . Or ya just wanna park and be done . .this is it . . beautiful flat sandy beach at least 2 miles north and 2 miles south . . Can’t say much more except . . this is it!

Must do for all ages and abilities . . The beach is your “trail” . . the trail starts instantly on the beach. Go as little or as far as ya want . . great tide pools . . great ocean sound. Rocky beach . . Want a sandy beach? . . go to Shi Shi or Kalaloch Beach. Hole in the wall is a great unique feature.

Good overall hike. Not too many people which was nice. Once you get down to the creek towards the end things can get hairy, as thick & thorny vegetation encompasses either side of the trail. Once we finally saw the waterfall we had to traverse across a large fallen down tree to get to the landing area where everyone was hanging out.

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.
