Exceptional hike up rocky terrain, many switch backs, some areas of sun, a constant climb. So well worth the hike. Allow 2hrs + up and 2hrs down. Great place for overnight stay.

Grand Pass Trail

This trail is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. My friend and I started at Obstruction Point and didn't quite make it down to the lakes before we decided we should head back (it was getting a little late). The views along the ridge are truly breathtaking. If it's a little cloudy, it only makes it more awesome-- you're right up in the clouds. On this partly-cloudy day we hiked, the clouds were hanging out on one side of the ridges, just kind of billowing, so facing one way we were staring into an eerie misty void and on the other side looking across a sunlit valley at some awesome glacier-carved peaks. We were pretty overwhelmed by the beauty. It's a fairly steep hike down into the basin where the lakes reside, which is difficult on the return trip with tired legs, but totally worth it. We can't wait to come back.

Beware the slightly scary, narrow gravel road that leads to the trailhead... it's pretty bumpy and there are places where you might feel a little too close to the edge of the road and a steep tumble downhill. My sedan handled it okay, but my passenger and I were a little tense!

Easy go all levels. More of a walk, really. Nice payoff for minimal effort. Great for children.

Did this trail with a young adult with a moderate walking disability. Really easy trail for all ages and skill levels and offers a good sample of what the Olympic peninsula is known for.
