Take a sojourn in the Hood Canal Ranger District on this way trail within Mount Skokomish Wilderness. If you're looking for solitude, you'll find it on this out-of-the-way gem in the Olympic National Forest.
You'll also find challenge. The path leading to Mildred Lakes was established by hikers and fishermen over the years, and never officially constructed. It is not maintained; in fact, it's little more than a root-strewn climb to the lakes. While it is comparitively well-established to Huckleberry Creek, beyond that it becomes steep and difficult to follow.
Be sure to have a map, compass, and route-finding skills, as well as stamina. The elevation gain on this trail is frustrating; it climbs up steeply, then plunges downhill only to climb again and finally down to the lakes. Because of the primitive characteristics of this trail, it is strongly recommended that boots with high tops be worn when hiking this trail.
