VARIOUS COMMENTS


This is a seasonal walk because the trail is closed when it is impassable in the winter. Check the trail conditions with the National Park Visitors Center in Port Angeles before starting the walk.

There is no water or restroom along the trail and as it is a challenging walk it is recommended that you carry water.

This trail starts a short distance across from the campground entrance, at the end of the spur road by the ranger station. Ample parking is available at the trailhead behind the employee housing area.

The trail climbs 2450 feet in 3.5 miles to Lake Angeles. Stream water is available along the way. You can continue another 3 miles and 1800 feet to the Klahhane Ridge/Heather Park/Switchback trail junction :

This creates four options: descent 1600 feet in 1.5 miles via the Switchback Trail OR to the Hurricane Ridge Road; traverse 3.6 miles with a net loss of 620 feet to the Hurricane Ridge Lodge; OR descend 4000 feet in 6.4 miles via Heather Park to Heart O'the Hills; OR return via Lake Angeles, down 4000 feet in 6.5 miles to Heart O' the Hills.
