This trail starts at the Lake Mills boat launch parking area and ends 2.0 miles later - one way. Easy day hike. This trail wanders peacefully along the west edge of Lake mills, with occasional views of the lake. Look for osprey.
Several hot springs can be found in Olympic National Park. Indian legend said that the hot water came from two dragons who where crying because they tried to have a fight but neither one of them could win.
