The hike is fairly easy until you reach the By-Pass trail which replaces the road below washed out years ago when the dam was removed. The By-Pass trail can be rather steep and rocky in places as well as muddy. An abandoned Ranger's station complete with housing and a visitor center and maintenance buildings remains as a result of being on the far side of the washout. Bring water and snacks and enjoy the magnificent view once you get to the dam site.

Park Service has done nice job on west side with interpreting this famous dam removal which has restored salmon runs and native vegetation. However because main road is closed to autos due to recent flooding, Park Service treats this site as "closed" and locks the toilet. This is irresponsible because hundreds of people visit this site on foot and on bicycles often enroute to Olympic Hot Springs or to hiking/backpacking in back country.

While it is true that you cannot simply drive up to this site as you could before the road wash outs, you can get there on foot. From the Madison Falls parking lot, walk along the road until you see the "by pass" trail sign. Follow this trail up into the woods and then back down to the road. Then, follow the road all the way to the site. I hiked this yesterday, and my GPS showed it to be 7.5 miles round trip. Along the way, you come across the now abandoned Elwha Ranger Station and other NP buildings, which feel a bit like a ghost town. The Elwha River area does not disappoint! -- waterfalls, a roaring river, old growth forests, and a very cool historic site at the top, which I had all to myself on a sunny Winter day. I really enjoyed it and can't wait to go again.

Since the road washed out a while back, it is about a 3.5 mile hike to get to the dam removal site from the nearest parking (7 mile round trip.) Most of the hike is easy walking on gradual slopes, but there is a steepish trail to go around the washout area that may deter some people. It isn't all that long, though, so once past that, you are back on the old road. The dam site is interesting with viewing platform and signage telling about the dam removal and recovery process. It is amazing how much the land has recovered in such a short time.

My daughter and I visited the removal site and it was quite a powerful experience, seeing what is possible when restoring a river to its natural flow.

My wife and I were trying to get back to the hotsprings that are just down the road from the Dam. Unfortunately for us, the road was closed a few miles prior to the Dam. We had hiked about 15 miles the day before, so we were not wanting to add another long hike the day after. Instead, we walked to the Dam. I noticed the map at the gate by the parking area note that there was an observation point here, so thought it might be worth checking out. We started hiking, made sure to take the bypass area due to washout, and arrived at our destination a while later. Along the way, there was a bridge we crossed which gave a great view of the lower parts of the river. Upon arriving at the top, we took some pictures and read about the Dam removal process, and learned about the recovery efforts. It is an interesting hike, and is on pavement virtually the whole time. The early part of the hike by the bypass area is the most challenging, as it is off road and up/down the side of the hill. Once you get over that part, it is a pretty straight forward walk. Worth the trip if you are looking for something to do, or decide to go on further to the hot springs.

We were disappointed to learn that the road along the Elwha River had washed out in two places and we could not access trailheads deep in Olympic NP. However, we went ahead and drove to the Madison Falls parking area, talked to the onsite ranger and decided to hike back to the Elwha River/Glines (upper) Dam site. The hike is primarily on the park road but there is a bypass trail that leads around the two washout areas. The bypass trail is steep but doable with a bit of effort. Although the hike is on the road there is a river on one side and thick woods on the other side so it isn't without scenery. Along the way there are a couple of picnic areas. One in particular we liked was the Altair area which has tables right along the river bed and plenty of shade (and no bugs). The dam site was 3.4 miles in but was really interesting. There are several informative signs on the dam that have pictures and explanations of what the dam was and is now. Also there is electronic commentary to be heard in a squawk box on the dam. The former lake bed is visible behind the former dam. We learned a lot about the history of the dam and the river and feel enriched for having spent the time/effort to see this site. One complaint is that the park folks do not maintain anything beyond Madison Falls so the bathrooms are locked all along the road which is kind of ridiculous since many people are still accessing this hiking area. There is an alternate to hiking the road, using the trail on the west side of the Elwha River but apparently parking is limited at the trailhead so we decided not to chance it. Overall this was a nice, fairly easy hike with lots of sites along the way and lots of information on dams. Definitely recommend.

The drive to the site is very cool along the river; however, the dam has been removed but its remains are still visible. There are multiple places to view deer and elk. A round trip takes about an hour. There is a short trail to a water fall that is easily accessed even for those with ability challenges.

This is a beautiful area which includes Madison Falls. The main paved road to the removal site is closed for repairs due to several washouts. To hike on paved road is 3.4 miles each way, therefore, not easy accessible by all. The Elwha River is beautiful and the scenery fantastic if you only walk part of the paved road.
