This is a 2.5 mile trail close to Sol Duc hot springs. It is uphill practically all the way to Mink Lake and unless you are in good shape, don’t attempt this trail in summer; the Mosquitos will eat you alive if you can’t keep ahead of them. There is no resting on this trail. The sights along the way are unremarkable—not old growth forest. The lake at the end of the trail is about 2 feet deep. Don’t plan on getting in.
