“A short trail off the Elwha River that gives you isolation and a taste of Olympic Wilderness.”— Doug Scott
While views aren't as sweeping as neighboring trails, getting into the wilderness of Olympic is something everyone should try. The Lillian River Trail is simple, easy to follow and most of the elevation is gained at the start. While you'll have a few dips and rises along the path, it is gentle enough to tackle with limited exertion.
At the end of the trail, you reach a backcountry campsite that is set along the Lillian River, giving a perfect place for a picnic, short rest or quiet moment of reflection while sitting along a unique and gorgeous river in Olympic National Park. While this trail doesn't offer magnificent views, it does give you a fantastic route into one of the lesser seen regions of the park.
