The Little River Trail is a 15.7 mile hike perfect for expert hikers who want some solitude and incredible views.

Some old cabins and houses remain along the trail. The trail begins in DNR land and enters Olympic National Park after about 1.1 miles. The trail ascends next to a river, and winds through large rock faces. The trail features a waterfall, and is shared by hikers, horseback riders, and those wishing to see wildlife.

Driving directions: 

From Port Angeles, west 8 miles on U.S. 101 to Elwha Hot Springs Road. Turn left and drive 4 miles to the Whiskey Bend Road. Turn left and drive 5 miles to the trailhead at the end of the road.
