This has been one of my favorite trails in Olympic National Park for many years. I was surprised to see someone dive into the lake on March 1st. It's a cold lake even in mid-summer. She looked regretful-and blue-when she came out.

Nice little scenic leg stretcher when driving around the penisula. Maybe a half hour to the fall? Easy, family friendly hike.

Nice, easy short hike. A few sketchy spots w/ rockslides. Nice campground close to springs & beautiful shire type fields to explore, can go on to Appleton pass, High Devide & beyond. Hot Springs are stinky but the top one was really very nice, hot!

For an easily accessible trail that is actually paved the entire way, this was a GREAT trail. Beautiful views. Tons of wildlife. We could see well into Canada and all the way to the snow peaks within the Olympics. Lots of people, but that is expected for such a trail. True to the description, we saw 3 Olympic marmots (big ones too), as well as some ptarmigans (a lifer bird for me). It is uphill for most of it, but just keep on trucking it and you won't be disappointed.

Hike with wildlife record. We saw goats, deers, marmots, gray jay and rabbit. Gorgeous views. Only partly shaded - bring some sunscreen. We only did about half way to avoid going down the valley and coming back up. I think the view is fairly similar half way and end point

Awesome! Leave the car at the visitors' center and walk it! The views all along the way are beautiful, and it just keeps getting better as you climb ever further up the ridge. As gorgeous as the view across the Strait to Canada and across the Sound to Seattle, it was almost as much fun to look across on the ferry coming back from Victoria, and know we were on the ridge the day before.
