From ONROUTE ........"Griff Creek Trail begins behind the Elwha Ranger Station, offering a round-trip hike of 5.6 miles. The trip out involves a steep climb, with more than 30 switchbacks, from the ranger station at 390 feet, to the end at 3,300 feet. There is no water available along the route. Rising from river level, the trail passes through old-growth conifer forest....A short side trail leads left to a lookout hill, with views of the Elwha, the Highs Creek Valley, Lake Mills, and large moss-covered rock formations. Crossing a ridge, the trail ends with a view of Griff Creek Valley, Unicorn Peak (to the left at 5,100 feet), and Griff Peak (5,120 feet)."
