    My Boy Scout Troop spent a week hiking around the Enchanted Valley and around Mt. Andersons Pass. One of the best hikes I have ever gone on. Beautiful rock formations and the river feels great after a long hike. P.S: There is a lot of bears.

    This is so much harder than the reviews say. I mean, you Can check my stats- but it’s almost twice the elevation the official maps say. The skyline section is so tough- so many ups and downs, you *have* to take two days for that. It’s not a traverse, you go up and down each individual peak. That being said, it’s very pretty. Dense with wildlife and so remote,you will almost certainly see bears, if not many dither forest creatures. You could just do the 3 ponds section and it could be challenging and gorgeous.

    Not many hikes in the Olympics give you the opportunity to hike along an uninhibited ridge line for multiple miles like this Grand Loop. Stayed at Gladys Lake overnight. Shallow waters made swimming actually quite comfortable. If you follow my tracks, I would recommend working clockwise from Obstruction Point. Although makes for a steep climb out of the valley after Gladys Lake, it beats the constant uphill slog that you will inevitably face in the counterclockwise direction.

    This hike was mostly on closed roads due to washout, but great because we got to camp near hot springs, a great reward after hiking 11 miles! It was a little buggy, but that’s expected because of all the water around. There is also a bear wire to hand food!!!

You can easily continue onto Elk peak if you want to extend your hike . The road up to the campground is very windy and tight at points , just be prepared to take it slow on some points in your car. Our Toyota Avalon made it no problems however , it is a well maintained d dirt road , just a bit tight .

    A lot of people didn’t like this because of the paved road. I found it wonderful as you watch nature reclaim old campgrounds, picnic areas and the dammed river. Great educational piece at the spillway. The distance feels much shorter than it is due to the east terrain. I highly recommend it.

    Very long ~11 miles. Gradual climb So it didn’t seem like 5000 feet elevation gain. 360 views with freezer in the way at dodger point. Bugs are horrible. Don’t get water at the Elwha beneath the bridge. Get water from the creek after camp before you get to the river. Besides the pink tarn There was one Stream To get water on the way to dodger point. No bare wire or a good trees to hang food. Trail not busy

    We backpacked in 9.1mi to Olympus Ranger Station, camped for the night and then 6mi up to Elk Lake. The next day we made the Blue Glacier trip a day trip. The ladder was way easier with just a day pack! The Glacier is EPIC!! We spent another night at Elk Lake and then packed the 15.1 out. We were permitted another night at the Guard Station, but it rained 5pm-5am every night and we had done what we set out to do so we left! Mud was non existent on way in and pretty heavy on the way out - just walk through it, makes for a fun journey and keeps the plants off trail safe. Lots of access to water at each camp area.

    The trail was easy to moderate. Moderate due to muddy spots and several blowdowns past Pyrites Creek (about 9.8-10 miles into the trail). Weather is crucial to getting the most out of this area. Cloudy and misty days would have been fine but to really feel small when sleeping in the valley, a sunny and clear day would be fantastic. Many spots to rest along the trail and an abundance of bears and elks as well. I would definitely opt for an overnight trip even if it’s just one night in the valley. Long trek to camp but so worth the effort!

    Full review is here: https://www.goatbells.blog/2022/05/22/olympic-national-park-enchanted-valley/ Weather is such important element in this area is the weather – it can be wet, cold, warm, windy and down-right wet all in the same day. Our forecast was: Tuesday (50-50 sun/rain), Wednesday (rain / cold), Thursday (am cold grey / pm some sun), Friday (sun), Saturday (sun) … temperature lows were to be around 40 @ Quinault, so the trail 15 miles up river would be even colder. We both took extra cold / wet gear and clothes and carrying between 30-32 pounds each. NPS (National Park Service) posted sufficient information at TH to be aware of the risks. Wrt bears, neither of us carried bear spray, just common sense, and of course all food was in bear canister. Summary: Enchanted Valley is one of those places – magical no doubt. The hike there in the cold rain was a challenge and we were rewarded well for the work. The crowds are too big and impact is high so the earlier one goes the better (but the weather … ). This is not a thru-hike go fast but a tourist hike where ever other step shows something fabulous. The old growth forests are remarkable, the wildlife plentiful (and relatively safe), and the water is EVERYWHERE.

    The Ozette loop always delivers, no matter what the weather. It was partially sunny in the evening as I walked the 3-mile boardwalk to Sand Point, then poured in intervals throughout the evening, but cleared around midnight to reveal a perfect moon shining over high tide. I was the only human (presumably the owners of the 5 cars in the parking lot had decided to camp at Alava, where fires are allowed), though in the morning discovered deer, eagle and heron neighbors close by. Boardwalk has been recently mended with many lovely new boards that smell pleasantly of cedar. While an easy hike/walk, boards are very slippery in the rain so proceed with caution.

    Really beautiful forested trail. We had our sights set on Bogachiel camp, which is the first one along the trail. The trail is pretty much straight and flat so we cruised along, only stopping to look at the many amazing mushrooms along the way. We saw only a handful of other people the whole day. After our hike we got in the river to cool off and it was just heavenly.

    We hiked this trail in mid-July on weekdays. The Ho River Trail was a nice hike through sometimes old-growth forest and occasional views of the Ho River. The reason for hiking to Elk Lake is to then continue on to Blue Glacier, which was amazing! The trail was crowded on our return on Friday with Mt Olympus climbers, Glacier backpackers, and day hikers closer to the trailhead.

    The hike is signed as 2 miles but the trail continues further to about 3 miles. The trail conditions are excellent for the first 1.5 miles but obstacles (especially downed trees) make the trail increasingly difficult. As one approaches the NP boundary the obstacles are quite large but the trail remains easy to follow. The final descent / scramble to the creek is probably outside the park boundary. No benches. Great forest for hiking. No open viewpoints.

    The snowshoeing started at the parking lot and onward with 86” of snow. At times we’re about the canopy of the tree lines as we scaled upward towards the top. There a few inclines that were difficult to make, I recommend alpine MSR snowshoes. I used some Japanese off brand and they did very well! The hike has awesome views of the Olympics on the way and to the top of the mountain.

    Picked a particularly dreary day to hike this loop - most of it was obscured by clouds. And by “obscured” I mean “inside” clouds almost the entire time. The elevation sees to that. While it wasn’t raining, being in a constant cold mist will chill you pretty quickly without the proper gear. Thankfully my friend and I had gloves, rain layers, and hats so as long as we kept moving, everything was fine. Honestly, I couldn’t have had a better time, despite the weather. A beautiful hike with extremely varied landscapes and no shortage of breathtaking scenery. I can’t wait to do this loop again in better weather (say late Spring instead of mid October) so I can take in the full view. We got a late start and so ended up hiking the last several miles in pitch dark with headlamps. Well worth the trouble!

    I must have read 10 descriptions of the Heart o’ the Hills, Lake Angeles, Klahhane Ridge, Heather Park Loop and none of them did it justice. We recorded it at 13.45 miles but went down to the edge of Lake Angeles and back tracked the short distance to the UNMARKED trail up to Klahhane Ridge. The climb up to the ridge is a spectacular grunt. The lake with its signature island is simply a gem from high above. The trail along K Ridge is such a varied, weave back and forth with priceless views of Mount Baker, Vancouver Island, large cargo ships in the Strait, Mount Olympus, Grey Wolf Ridge, on and on. The vertical striations of Mount Angeles nearly strike me speechless every time I’m on the ridge, and coming up this different trail, with the mountain before you, only enhanced the effect. Then, the junction with the Heather Park trail, dropping down just below Mt Angeles toward the Ennis Creek headwaters but hugging the side of the cirque and then pushing up a gully ( another significant grunt), and over a low point in the rocky ridge line that ends with Mt Angeles. The view into that next valley, which seems to hold Little River way down there, floored us. The rock was varied and dramatically sculpted, one massive dome jumped right in front and below us. The trail wound along the valley edge, exciting ledges and heights, crumbling gullies, all leading to one more 200 foot push (yet another thigh burner) up to what might be the Heather Park camp site, or First Top or both. Then the long, beautiful plod through the forest to the bottom. We saw 3 people on the the Heather Park stretch, maybe 3 climbing up to K Ridge. This is appropriately rated as strenuous and worth every bit of the effort.

    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.

    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.

    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.
