The Humes Ranch Loop is a popular hike in Olympic National Park, outside of Port Angeles.

The hike features wildflowers, scenic views of old growth forest, and opportunities to see birds and wildlife. The trail is open for use year-round.

If you wish to extend your hike, you can keep going along the Dodger Point trail for a mile and a half or two past Hume's Ranch. You can then make a stop at a scenic suspension bridge, 1000 feet above the Elwah River. You can find information about trail conditions (muddy washouts) and camping permits at the Elwah Ranger Station. 

Directions from Port Angeles: 

Follow Highway 101 westward approximately 8 miles to Elwha River Road, a.k.a. Olympic Hot Springs Road. Turn left and follow the river road southward into Olympic National Park. Three miles from Highway 101 you'll reach the Elwha Campground, continue past this facility to the Elwha Ranger Station. Beyond the ranger station the Whiskey Bend Road veers left at a fork. Follow this road 4.5 miles to its end and the trailhead for Elwha River Trail.
