This steep trail ascends through deep forest and exposed rock outcroppings to Lake of the Angels and Mt. Skokomish, both within the boundaries of Olympic National Park. There are a few campsites scattered along this trail. Once Lake of the Angels is reached, one encounters a number of trails and paths leading in different directions. One scramble trail takes hikers onto the east slope of Mt. Skokomish. A second climbs the northwest end of the canyon to higher alpine areas. Overnighters traveling into the Olympic National Park will need to fill out a backcountry permit (located along the trail at 1.3 miles).

The nearest potable water from the trailhead is at Lena Creek Campground, located four miles before the trailhead on FS 25.

Directions: From Hoodsport, Travel 14 miles north on Highway 101 to Forest Service Road 25 and follow 25 for 12.5 miles to the trailhead, located just beyond the Boulder Creek bridge.
