While the chance to see a waterfall that cascades into the ocean is bait enough to get you to Harts Cove, the hike itself is a real winner. Between the waterfall, the oldgrowth Sitkas, and the sweeping ocean views, you might be hard-pressed to sequence this hike’s best attributes. Note that the gated road to the trailhead is closed January 1 through July 15. The hike to Harts Cove begins with something almost no hiker wants to encounter at the beginning of a trek: lots of descent. As a matter of fact, you’ll be losing close to 600 feet of elevation in the first 0.75 mile, which of course means you’ll have your work cut out for you at the end of the hike. But for now, down you go.
