    The hike to the top is steeeeep but the view makes it well worth it. Hiking out/along the road is pretty with views of the river. The overlook of the demolished dam and river valley are also something to see.

    We were able to snag a pretty good itinerary with two nights at Elk Lake, so we were very excited for this one. We started off from the campground on Friday morning, which let us miss a lot of the day hiker traffic and get an early start for a 15+ mile day. It was beautiful in the forest and along the river, but a bit of a long hike no doubt. Elk Lake is a fine place to camp, but nothing special unfortunately. There isn't easy access to the lake and it wouldn't really be possible to fish (wish I had known that before bringing a pole!). The outlet steam is also pretty warm and murky, so we headed 1/3 mile down to trail to filter water from Martin Creek. That said, Elk Lake was a great basecamp for splitting up the trip! The hike up to the glacier from here gets quite steep, but the views improve steadily. Just before Glacier Meadows is an immense washout. You'll need to go down a long, steep ladder and rope over a 200-foot hillside, and it's not for the faint of heart! I imagine it'd be pretty hard with a full backpack, but plenty of people managed. Apart from this, the trail is in great shape. The final trip up to the glacier is pretty steep, but well worth it. I'd definitely recommend going to both the lateral and the terminal morraine. The lateral morraine is quite a bit more difficult but provides a better view of the glacier, so you'll probably want to do that one first. Our hike out was a bit of a slog as it got hot, and the trail was busy on a Sunday afternoon near the visitor center. Our feet were hurting pretty bad, so a dip in the ocean at Ruby Beach was welcomed.

    Gorgeous views! Mosquitoes were many and relentless from about a mile before Royal Lake until we got about about a half mile from the upper basin and the areas with some lingering snow. Otherwise, this hike was perfect--blue skies, great hiking weather, and spectacular scenery!

    Trail is well groomed so it’s the elevation gain that might get some folks. Not for the physically challenged. Views of Lake Crescent and Straits of Juan de Fuca are phenomenal!

    Excellent hike going past Sol Duc Falls. It was a bumpy ride going up with unsteady rocks underfoot most of the way, but the view was worth it.

    Great weather above the marine layer. Sunny and cool. Great views of TYLER, Baldy, Gray Wolf from the west capped by exceptional views of Mount Olympus. Pretty unparalleled, especially in November.

    This was my first time above 5,000 feet and my first time hiking in a National Park. I’m a decently fit person in my 30s and it was a challenge to maintain a good clip as the elevation gain comes throughout the long 7mi trek. Amazing views at the top although it can get cloudy, blocking some magnificent views. However, for being in October in the PNW, it was gorgeous. Some steep points but no equipment needed.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
