The TH is at MP 9.3 on the Hamma Hamma Road. This trail is listed in Audubon's Olympic Loop of The Great Washington State Birding Trail. The trail drops fairly steeply from the TH to begin a 0.7 mile loop around the lake. There are several benches along the way for resting while bird watching. We saw only one goldeneye which flew in as we were leaving. Trillium, coltsfoot, yellow violets, and Indian plum were the flowers seen. Before hiking this short trail, we drove to the end of the Hamma Hamma Road to view the Hamma Hamma Falls which is another falls listed in the Olympic Peninsula Waterfall Trail Brochure. Bob hiked to a view of the falls, but the trail was too precarious for me! You can read more info at the following website: Http://www.OlympicPeninsulaWaterfallTrail.com

I decided to drive around the Hood Canal and stop at a few places, just taking my time. I didn't feel like a serious hike so I went up Hama Hama Road to ejnoy the river and forest. The road is in great shape.

Lena Lake trail head was busy! At least 15 car's there so I kept on going. I found the trail head to the Hama Hama Beaver pond a few miles up on the left hand side.
The trail to and around the "pond" was very nice. Lots of green and golden moss lined the path, interspersed with lots of blooming white Trillium. I was the only one there so it was very peaceful. The only noise were frogs croaking and a pair of Mallard's that I spooked.
There were a few saplings blown down but easy to crawl under, and one huge dead fallen tree that just barely missed smashing a bench on the trail.
A nice short hike for all ages.

Having to turn back on the Lena Lake trail allowed us to discover this gem of an area at MP 9.3 on the Hamma Hamma Road. At this time because of wash out areas one needs a high clearance vehicle to get to the TH. The sign on the post at the TH says that this is a 0.7 mile loop. The trail descends fairly steeply to the pond. We stopped midway down and ate our lunch sitting on a bench with a view of the pond. We went clockwise at the loop around the pond until we came to a 5 foot section of standing water. We retraced our steps and continued counter-clockwise around the pond until coming to the standing water again. This is a beautiful area with moss covered maples and rocks and many, many British Soldier lichens. We saw an oozle and a Bufflehead pair. After the hike we drove to the end of the Hamma Hamma Road. This is possible only with a high clearance vehicle. There was a very short icey section of road near the bridge that crosses the river at the end of the road.

What a delightful little trail. No beavers but nice views anyway and oh so much easier then trying to reach Mildred Lakes today. Just over 1 mile if you do the entire loop.

Diablo Lake

North Cascades

Follow the Diablo Lake Trail up and across talus slopes on the flanks of Sourdough Mountain to impressive cascading waterfalls and stunning views. This hike in the North Cascades Institute's backyard makes a great option for an early season hike in stunning North Cascades National Park, much of which is inaccessible during the winter and spring.
