We hiked to Lake Angeles in May, early season in Olympic National Park, Washington.
Stopping at a couple of Ranger stations, this summer overnight hike was recommended.
• High Divide Loop 18.2 miles (bear canister required for overnight)
Phil Armitage ranks High Divide one of his top 10 day hikes in America. (LONG day hike, mind.)

It’s close to Sol Duc hot springs, as well.
Bugs are a problem, so the later in the summer, the better.
