Beautiful trail. Even on a rainy day the hike was enjoyable. Trail well maintained and easy to do. The dense trees make the rain doesn’t seem so wet.

Very difficult trail! The entire trail looks like you’re following a narrow rocky creek bed all the way up the mountain. Lots of obstacles to navigate but the view on the rock up top is worth it. Also multiple campsites at mile 2 and again around 3 ish. One of the hardest hikes we’ve done. We did the last 3 miles in the dark with headlamps.

great but moderately strenuous hike.

Backpacked 10/22-10/24. It had just rained on Monday, 10/21, so parts of the trail was overflowing with water. We tried to stay on the trail but at mile 4.4 and 8, we had to scramble and bushwhack onto some dry ground. By the time we hiked back on 10/24, there was no flooding. It was a beautiful hike! Saw lots of elk and mountain goats in the distance. Saw a cougar footprint too?? At the Enchanted Valley, a lot of the leaves had already fallen so we were looking at some pretty naked trees. Didn’t end up going to Anderson Pass to see the glacier, but heard the glacier was pretty much melted.

We hiked the trail yesterday from parking lot. The first part of the loop was great, lots of beautiful trail. However, after crossing the road at about 2.8 miles in, the trail was covered by water and not passable. The lake level is too high. We had to walk along the road for about 1 mile to return to the parking lot. Not too bad of a detour though. Still worth it!

Great experience. Not a difficult trail but felt extremely desolate. Hiked it on a week day and was the only car in the lot. You will lose cell reception long before you even reach the trailhead. Was raining lightly the day we hiked this but wasn’t a problem... if anything it made the rainforest feel more alive. Some parts of the trail were like walking up a creek, but nothing that athletic sneakers couldn’t handle. Would definitely recommend a rain shell. The view of the river over Pony bridge was a highlight of the entire trip. Would recommend.

This is a good hike. Gradual climb over 9.4 miles round trip. Several beautiful streams, old growth Spruce and an alpine saddle before the approach to Colonel Bob. It was blowing and snowing on top, quick picture and it was time to head down.

This is about a Boy Scout trip I went on in July about 40 years ago. I remember a plethora of switchbacks gaining altitude. Some beautiful but muddy vistas. Fields of flowers and small streams and rocky slopes and chirping Pika. I saw one mountain goat standing on the glacier above the lake. The sun was setting to the West and you could see the series of valleys heading to the Pacific. To the east the shadows of the Olympic Mountains slowly crept toward Seattle. It was a defining moment and started my passion for being in nature. It was the best hike I've ever taken. Going to do it again next year.

Did this trail 9/14/19 in the rain. Had to climb over multiple trees or under. Hard to maneuver and know when the trail would end. Early part was well groomed. Farther in the trail harder to tell what was trail and what people made as a trail. Still good hike. Be prepared to get wet.

Left from Dosewallops up Anderson pass down through Enchanted Valley out to Quinault. Trails were excellent, went up to the glacier, total miles 36, time it took 19 hours.

Nicely marked. Simple trail. Easy

Did this hike 1 week ago. Beautiful forest. The trail was overgrown, which didn’t bother me too much because I could still see the path. Many fallen and decaying trees in the path, which we climbed over. But then at the end, there wasn’t a clearly marked trail. We weren’t sure where we should go or where the final destination was. We turned back. Overall, a beautiful hike but the trail itself needs some clearing - the trees at the very least.

Accessed from the West TH on the Nooch side. Short hike in, maybe a half mile. Pretty forest landscape and trail was clear minus 2 trees we had to cross, nothing major. Would go again to take our kids but no decent camping spots so prepare to create your own. *Marker from Satsop Center says 5 miles but is closer to 7.

This is an unmaintained trail with treacherous footing through a lovely rainforest canyon. The first mile or so is decent, but after that the trail deteriorates to largely roots and rocks. A couple of the blow downs required removing my day pack and crawling on my hands and knees to get under. The trail is not aerobically challenging, but it is too technical to be pleasurable.
