    Directions to Trailhead

    Humes Ranch Loop Trail is a heavily trafficked loop hike in Olympic National Park. This trail is very beautiful and there are lots of camping spots along the way. While the marked trail itself is under 10km long, washout on the access road has made it necessary to begin from Madison Falls, making this a much longer trek. Until this is fixed (if ever), come prepared for extra hiking.

    Route Description for Humes Ranch Loop Trail

    The Humes Ranch Loop is a pleasant loop through the forest in the Elwha River Valley. Currently, it’s impossible to access the railhead directly due to washout, so plan for a much longer day.

    The trail begins from the end of Whiskey Bend Road. Hike gently down the valley wall to where the trail forks. Stay high on the wall (to your left) and loop along the valley floor if you’d rather have one steep ascent and a relaxed remainder of the hike, or go right if you’d rather start with a steep descent and then spend the return trip gaining gradual elevation. Either way, you’ll loop back around where the valley ends. There are campsites all along the trail on the valley floor, so get comfortable if you’re here to spend the night.

    Getting to the Humes Ranch Loop Trail Trailhead

    The trailhead for the Humes Ranch Loop is at the end of Whiskey Bend Road. Because of washout, you’ll need to begin at Madison Falls.
