Wish we had had more time to do more trails! Did the short hike at the front of the park and the one to the Sitka Spruce. It's a fun photo op! Beautiful lake. If we camped, I would definitely want to camp here!

A beautiful loop trail hike that wasn't terribly strenuous and a nice cool way to spend an hour on a warm August day!

This was one of my favorite parts of my trip to the Olympic Peninsula. The beauty of of the forest walk was all inspiring. The rainforest is a must-see.

This is a very good trial, well kept with great examples of large trees, moss, bogs and waterfalls. The trail we walked was about 4 miles long and was easy to walk, however a stroller might not work on this trail.
