We will be in arriving in Washington In just 8 days. After spending 3 nights exploring beaches and the rain forests, we then move to Port Angeles for 2 nights. I had originally picked Klahhane Ridge as one of our hikes. But my youngest daughter had ACL surgery on her right knee three months ago, and at her recent follow up we asked her dr about what she can and can't do as far as hikes. Her Dr has asked that we stay away from steep hikes. From the description Klahhane Ridge is fairly steep in the beginning of the hike. My husband and I will probably still do this hike if conditions are good, but now are looking for another hike we can all do together in this area. I read a description on WTA of Elk Mountain to Maiden Peak and it does not appear to be steep, more gradual. There were no trip reports with it and I haven't been able to find any other descriptions. Can anyone give me some advice on this trail or any others in this area that might meet our need?
