“A long slog up, but once at the top, the views, and exposed rock are amazing.”— Pete B
There is nothing too steep or scrambly, and the smooth trail makes for moderate hiking. Just be mindful of the other trail users. The trail climbs through the same forest type for about 5 miles and you'll pass Lake Angeles on your left.
Here you can stop to take a dip in the lake, or swim out to the island. After another short climb on the Klahhane Ridge Trail, you'll emerges in Heather Park.
Stunning views, exposed rock, and craggy ridges await. The trail follows the impressive Klahhane Ridgeline skirting cliffs and ledges. Marvel at the incredible 360-degree views of the entire Olympic Peninsula. (Mount Baker to the east, Strait of Juan de Fuca & Vancouver Island to the north, Elk Mountain to the south)
On the way back down, take the Heather Park Trail. This will be a long descent, and be prepared for a strenuous downhill.
