Great exercise throughout, and gorgeous views. On a clear day, you can see Mt. Baker across the water, once you get to the top. There wes still some snow near the top, in early June. Good sun protection is a must on a sunny day, as many parts of the trail are not shaded, especially along the latter part of the hike. The trailhead is located about 12 miles up from the Park entrance, before the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center.

This trail has a beautiful waterfall and crystal turquoise lake, but holy moly getting back up the trail is the absolute worst. I think the views are beautiful but also can be seen elsewhere in the park. I can’t stress how hard that climb back up was.

So I was only able to hike about a mile and a half and the views were still amazing. The road is open and totally driveable without 4 wheel drive. However we couldn’t hike the whole or even most of the trail because there is still significant amount of snow. As soon as I got to the stairs to descent it was just covered and got too risky without having crampons and snow gear. The ranger also said not to even bother with badger valley unless you have an ice pick and crampons as the ridges are all snowed in. I think this will be a worthy hike mid July, but right now just isn’t passable with basic gear.

Great trail very easy hike. I recommend crossing the fence and going down to the falls. Can get to the top just right of the bench very steep but worth it.

I prefer this falls to Marymere falls AND is a stroll vs hike.

Fantastic views of Olympic park mountain range. There was a bit of snow to get thru on hill. Hike up at “Trail” sign (go left) is a bit of a climb. Poles were helpful. Don’t think you are going to climb Mt Angeles.

Very easy mostly shaded trail! There are some stairs, so make sure you are prepared for that!

good trail all around, especially first half. once you get to the Mount Angeles trail the incline become intense and the trail is pretty overgrown and small. hard to follow this early in the season.

beautiful and strenuous as always. massive cloud cover at the top with no visibility. will have to return on a clear day.

For the views you get you really don’t have to work that hard. Hard hike views for easy to moderate hiking.

Spectacular view! Trail was under repair Jen, Jeff, Liam, and Casey

road directly to trailhead closed, prepare to park at picnic area b or even visitor center if necessary

Hike was decent but the best part is the Devil’s Punchbowl! Go left on the trail instead of through the tunnel and you can jump of the bridge and swim in crystal clear water! Even though it was very cold we had a blast and stayed just at that part for almost an hour!

Stayed at Deer Park Campground, took off from there and hiked 14 mi round trip. Did not make it to the trail intersection with obstruction point Road. Lots of wildflowers in bloom. Saw a quail doing it's mating call behavior. Jaw dropping views.

The hike itself was beautiful, but the lake itself was chilly and cloudy. Watch out because it gets wet and slippery

Awesome trail! Super steep in places. Need to be very focused when hiking past the maintained trail. Would recommend doing at non peak hours since there are a few bottleneck spots. View is COMPLETELY worth it. Absolutely stunning

Pretty hike. Nice falls. Good as a quick, easy outing.

Fantastic hike through all kinds of landscapes: forest, meadow, sub-alpine, and alpine. I started at the visitor center parking lot and stopped about a 1/2 mile past the junction with Heather Park trail due to excessive snow fields. After the first 3/4 of a mile from the visitor center lot, (when there aren’t fog or clouds) is one of the best “bang for the buck” hikes I’ve taken. Panoramic views of the Olympics to the South and the Sound to the North. Also, stunning views when you get to the junction with Heather Park trail, but that’s when the fog rolled in. So, I’m sure I didn’t even see the best of it. Trail is in good condition for the most part, but there is one 1/4 mile stretch about a mile from the visitor center trailhead that still has substantial snow. Crossing was ok with boot stomping and poles, but finding the switchback trail that descends to the valley was somewhat challenging. Should be better soon.

It is a beautiful trail and nice area to spend time in. For me, it was way too crowded today. The trail narrows in some points causing you to feel like you are all bunched up with people right in front and right behind you. The viewing area to see the falls isn't super big either so it felt a little like a human assembly line where I wait for my turn to see, look and then move for the next person. I will plan my next trip here in the winter because it truly is a beautiful place!

This was a great day hike, you can go as far as you like depending on your time & stamina, but I highly recommend going at least 2.5 miles in to get the best views. Also when you get to the train tunnel, opt to go around to the left on the trail, instead of through, you get AMAZING views!

Easy and beautiful

Beautiful hike. Very tough grade, but great payoff in terms of views. Trail was generally in good shape but quite a bit of roots and rocks. Be sure to get good footing coming down. Note that the end of the maintained trail (which is signed at the top), is not the end of the All Trails trail. There is still a bit of distance and elevation gain if you want to reach the very top. However, the trail gets much sketchier and you need to use ropes that have beef installed there to aid the ascent. I was only comfortable going part way.

nice trail, mostly through the woods, with breakout views of the mountains and lake.

short hike and beautiful views

Stunning. Beyond stunning. In terms of sheer, unrelenting visual glory, this trail is one of the best in the entire Olympics. You can continue all the way to the summit, just be careful about your hand and foot holds because there is loose rock, steep ascents, and sharp drop offs. But it’s worth it. From the top you can see Canada, the Dungeness Spit, Whidbey Island, Mt Baker, and perhaps the best panoramic view of the Olympics in the entire park.

Took us 1.5 hours to get to the top with minimal stops along the way. Pretty much incline the entire way up with some switch backs. The ropes were extremely helpful near the end. Very exhilarating. Views were amazing.
