This moderate-level National Recreation Trail into Lena Lake is heavily used during the summer months. It is well maintained and of a moderate grade with long switchbacks. Beyond Lower Lena Lake, the trails are steeper with limited maintenance. There are 29 rustic campsites with metal fire rings located around the lake.

The Forest Service is in the process of revegetating the southwest shoreline of Lena Lake from the outlet to approximately 500 feet north of the Big Rock (lookout point). You can help revegetate the area by not entering the "No Camping" areas.

If you are continuing on the Upper Lena Lake, you will be entering Olympic National Park. Be sure to fill out a backcountry permit for overnight trips (available at the park boundary).

Directions: From Hoodsport, Travel Highway 101 14 miles north to Forest Service Road 25 and follow for 8 miles to the trailhead.
