Lena Lake


Day Hike - Lena Lake

This is a pleasant, easy hike on a good trail through a forest canopy to a scenic lake created by a geologic upheaval 1,300 years ago, where we will eat lunch at a prominent viewpoint overlooking the lake, returning by the same route.

Because the SR-512 Park in ride is closed for 4 months,  we will meet at the Temporary Lot located at the south end of the Discount World parking lot, located at 11013 Pacific Highway South, about one-half mile south of the SR-512 Park & Ride. 

We will meet at the Temporary Lot Noted above at 8am.

From there we will drive to  the trailhead parking area on the paved Hamma Hamma River Road, which forks west from US 101 north of Eldon on the west side of Hood Canal.  A Northwest Forest Pass, or the equivalent, must be displayed by each car parked at the trailhead. 

I will be bringing my dog on this hike unless anyone has any concerns with this.

Some years ago the trail was rerouted to make the grade more gradual, which has made this a good hike for socializing.  There are restrooms at the trailhead and near the lunch spot.  On the drive home there will be an optional stop for ice cream in Hoodsport at the Hoodsport Coffee Company.  Public restrooms are located nearby in Hoodsport.
