Nice trail in Olympic National Forest up to to Lake Lena. Moderate climb. Dogs are allowed, but be careful not to follow the trail to Upper Lake Lena, it is part of Olympic National Park and dogs aren't allowed on trails in the park. There are several switchbacks which make it a moderate climb. The trail is very well kept and it is BEAUTIFUL! Expect company, it is a very popular trail. You will need a Recreation pass to park at the trailhead. Show more

Note: this trail is not recommended to anyone who isn’t an experienced hiker or has done longer outings, as this will test you physically and mentally (especially so in the summer, as it’s very humid on hot days). If you want a challenging day hike with some rock climbing then go for it, but be prepared and bring your gear!Show more

The 3 mi trail to the lower lake is wide, well maintained and easy to moderate. As you approach the lake you see glimpses of it through the trees. Continue on the main trail which parallels the west side of the lake until you come to the upper lake trail. This trail immediately becomes a single track trail and you notice the increase in elevation. The upper lakes trail is noticeably more difficult but becomes even more so as you approach Upper Lena Lake. The last hour or so was very challenging especially with packs. Many people camp at Lower Lena and do a day hike up. Along the upper trail, you enter the Olympic National Park so dogs are not allowed past that point. Be prepared for lots of vertical hiking. Upon coming to a beautiful alpine meadow you feel a little relief from the challenge only to realize the rest of the hike is the most difficult. There are 8 designated wilderness campsites which require a permit and reservations for a stay. It is needless to say, beautiful and secluded. From Upper Lena you can explore Scout Lake and Milk Lake. This is a spectacular hike with views at the top of Mt Lena and Mt Rainier.Show more

A great backpacking option to the lakes, with awesome waterfront campsite. The lakes are a gorgeous variation of greens and teals. The mountains peaking over the tops of the trees reflected off the serene lake surface. It is definitely a little 'difficult'; not a technical trail, just has a steady grade all the way and gets increasingly steeper over the last bit. The Forest Road 24 road closes seasonally for snow and wet conditions. Please check with Olympic National Park for status updates: https://www.nps.gov/olym/index.htmShow more

This is far more technical than the neighboring Mt. Ellinor Trail. Even without snow, the trail is very difficult to find and stay on at times. The trail is absolutely stunning and worth the effort of every step.Show more

This is a challenging trail due to the terrain and elevation as well as the fact that it is not well maintained. It is beautiful and the fishing is great, but you will need decent navigational skills to safely make it out and back.Show more
