The hike itself is not all that interesting. The path is wide and there are a couple neat bridges, but that is about all. You can smell when you start getting close to the springs and then see the first pools. We only wondered around to a couple before we found a nice one that was free from people. It... More

My family recently hiked the Olympic hot springs trail with another young family and enjoyed a beautiful day with a beautiful trail. Once you go through the ranger station the road goes ten miles (mostly single lane so go slow) to a dead end and the trail head. It is a very wide trail with a gentle incline. We crossed... More

This hike was about 5 miles, round-trip, but it was really easy and worth seeing the hotsprings at the end. The hotsprings themselves were not big enough to sit in and be completely submerged, but they were bid enough, and hot enough, to enjoy. The trail was well maintained and marked, as well, with a restroom St the trailhead. Great,... More

Hiked in to camp by the hot springs at Olympic Hotsprings in the Olympic National Park last winter. We had a dusting of snow on the ground at camp and were relaxing in the warm pools which spring up out of the ground. It is worth the hike in to see this cool place

We recently traveled as a group to visit the hot springs. The 2.4 mile trek from the trailhead to the hot springs is straightforward -- except for the bridge crossing. The regular, wide footbridge with dual handrails was closed due to structural problems, so we had to cross the log bridge instead. I'm glad the bridge existed, because we were... More

My husband and I stayed at one of the cabins at the Hot Springs. The cabin was wonderful, the hot springs fabulous and the hiking trails great. Would recommend for anyone that enjoys being outdoors, and room in the cabins for more than 2 people.

I had the experience of the camp sites of the Olympic National Park and the Washington State camp sites. Let's say that if you want to be quiet, have a tidy camp site and feeling more close to your environment, I will go for the Washington State camp sites, worth the extra money. Unfortunately, now they want a reservation but... More

interesting place with kids - the hike was great, but the hot springs area itself is a big tourist trap. The staff did keep it clean and everyone was very helpful. The cabin are teeny tiny.

Because of the removal of the Elwa River Dam, The approach through the Elwa Valley is closed. Until this project is finished, the only way to the springs is via the Sol Duc Trail and the Appleton Pass and down Bolder Creek. In most cases this is a two day hike to get there and back. My last visit to... More
