    Moderate is in the eye of the beholder. I found the hike to be VERY steep. We had an early start...100% trail ownership which is always extra nice. We were in heavy fog so the views were peak-a-boo. Will I do this hike again? Yes. The tree's are wonderful.

    Heavenly walk through the woods for the first 4miles. Mile 5-6 start to get your heart rate up, and the last 1.4miles is hard. I did also have an over night pack with all my gear, which that weighed ~30-35lbs. Make sure to start early to beat the heat and to get a good spot at the lake!

    An easy out and back hike. We went with friends and ate lunch at Camp Handy. We missed the first turn on the way out and had to backtrack. The turnoff for FS 2880 came almost right after going onto gravel.

    Beautiful trail with a lot of shade much of the way up. The Quilcene river still has a good water flow. Views at the pass are great.

    This hike was my first hike ever. It was indeed a difficult trail. Once you reached it, a good sigh of relief that you have seen how beautiful it is. Not for the faint of heart though.

    nice quality trails, elevation gain is comfortable, fishing is fun, lots of space for camps, try the upper basin.

    Off of 101 turn onto Lake Crescent Rd towards ranger station. The trail is incredibly well maintained. Young children and strollers are no problem. I would not make a special trip to see these falls. However if you have time and are driving by no reason not to stop

    Hiked the loop as a 2 night backpack trip this past weekend and it was amazing. Wildflowers are blooming, perfect peninsula weather conditions (70s and sunny blue skies), and rugged trail made this one of my favorite backpacks and hikes in the PNW. We stayed at sol duc river #4 and lunch lake. At lunch lake you will be constantly swarmed by mosquito's - you've been warned. Amazing trail starting in the dense forest near sol duc falls that goes all the way into the high alpine with breathtaking views of seven lakes basin and Mt. Olympus.

    Easy trail (it's on an old road) through big woods, a dramatic canyon, a recovering burn, and past a big cascade. At 6.5 miles, you can stop at the old drive-in campground, cut off when the road washed out some years ago.

    One of the best hikes in the area to get an unbelievable view of Crescent Lake and check out a cool WWII lookout. We started hiking around 1 pm and came back around 5:45 pm. On our way up, we saw a few people coming down, but on the way down we were completely alone. I’m shocked we saw less than 10 people on this hike during Memorial Day. Around mile 2, you’ll cross a small gully - beware of your footing. Once you cross it, the elevation starts to climb and you’ll start to sweat. Bring bug spray - the bugs were pretty brutal at the top since there wasn’t much wind.

    This is a surprisingly nice little hike. The rushing creeks and small waterfalls at the top of the hike are the highlight.

    Christmas day hike 2018. Stopped raining as we got to the trail about 8:30 am. Trail clockwise has a 2 small trees over trail, easy to step over. We started up to the look out, patchy snow then at the 5th switchback consistent 1-2" of trampled snow, this is the old logging road so easy to navigate. We turned around at the arrow sign as micro spikes would be best from there on up. Coming down there were more trees down, easy to scramble over, about 7 more trees. All in all a good hike to get the heart rate up and breath some clean air. Saw a Cushman security truck pass by the parking lot. Only one car when we started and 3 when we returned. I recommend water proof shoes, hiking poles, gaiters and 10 essentials. Always be prepared for rain and layer up. We hiked almost 6 miles, moving time 3.10, average speed 25 mph. You make up time on the way down:) Good half day hike and dogs are allowed.

    Great hike for someone not able to do a strenuous hike, but wants to get some good elevation. You can drive up to over 5000’ and then hike a relatively easy grade as far as you like.

    Closed in by weather and fresh snow above 4000 ft. Good trail conditions except slippery above the snowline where snow remained on the trail.

    A great backpacking trip that follows the river though the valley with elevation gain stretched over many miles. Ample campsites at the end and requires a permit and bear canister to hike. The chalet was moved back due to the receding river bank and will most likely need to be moved again. Rangers were camped back in the valley checking permits. This is a perfect hike to do with friends, especially if they enjoy a variety of tree species. Break up the mileage by camping in designated campsites along the way.
