CHS 2 Hike

Field trip: Conditioning Hiking Series

CHS 2 Hike - Seven Lakes Basin & High Divide

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS FABULOUS LOOP HIKE IS IN THE OLYMPICS! It's important that you plan to stay overnight Friday night on the peninsula! (I also recommend staying Saturday night but that's up to you). Staying in or near Port Angeles is a good option. There are a number of B&B's etc. to choose from. Our trailhead is up the road from Sol Duc Hot Springs about 50 minutes from Port Angeles. There is also a first come first served campground with 82 spaces right near the Hot Springs Resort. You could also stay at the Resort cabins but they are pricey. This hike is led at a CHS 2 pace.
