Description

Flapjack Lakes are smallish lakes, but are gorgeous, and are well worth the effort to reach them. Once you reach the lakes, the little-talked about Sawtooth Range of the Olympics can be seen. The views, during the right lighting and seasons can be breathtaking. If you are lucky, the wind will be calm, the bugs will be low, and you'll be able to see a perfect reflection of these seasonally-popular lakes. There is also a pretty rad waterfall near the lakes!

The trail itself has a few moderate climbs, but overall is quite pleasant. Starting from the intersection with the North Fork Skokomish River Trail, this trail continues to gain elevation and trend generally in a northeast direction, until it comes to its end at the Flapjack Lakes, and the Gladys Divide Trail and Smith Lake Trail.

We did this trail with 5 adults. This is an incredible trail with fantastic ridge views. I'd take our family on the first half and camp along the way. 16mi
