A short hike from the Hurricane Ridge parking lot on the final summer-like day of the year in Western Washington. Trail continues far beyond our turnaround point.

My mother made this trip about 25 years ago, her first real summit. After she passed away in the spring of 2007, my brother and cousin and I decided to recreate the trip.

Sol Duc Falls is the most popular falls in the Olympic National Park. It is a good choice even on a rainy day:-)

An awesome trip to a mountaintop ridge with views of the Straights of JuanDeFuca, Victoria BC, Mt Baker, Glacier Peak, Seattle, Bangor, Mt Rainier, and Mt Adams, all from one spot. Glorious fog blown meadows, surrounded by snow capped peaks. And of course friends.

Two Hikes in Olympic National Park

12.9 miles
Olympic National Park has been a goal since we first conceived of this trip.  We were lucky to get there before winter closed in (we are fleeing south through the first big winter storm even as I type).  In fact we had perfect weather for some hiking on the rainforest side of the park.

Wagonwheel Lake Trail at Staircase (partial)

1.6 miles
The sign at the trailhead says this trail is very steep and they are not kidding. This is one of the steepest trails in the Olympic National Park. Ed, Pavel, and I attempted to hike to the lake at the end of this trail. Gaining 3200' elevation in 2.9 miles, the trail cuts through some real rough terrain. After about an hour of grueling switchbacks we only made 0.8 miles. At that rate the trip would have...

Nothing compares to the soaring mountains, lush and fragrant forests, and the shining seas to be seen from the views contained within the Olympic National Park. Seeing it from horseback only makes it better.

Olympic National Park is one of my favorite National Parks. It combines beaches, rain forests, and high mountains in a remote setting. While National Park accommodations are seldom luxurious, Lake Crescent Lodge is highly recommended for its pleasant restaurant and bar situated on a beautiful lake surrounded by mountains. Nothing better than quaffing a beer on the porch while watching the sun go down across the lake. Kalaloch Lodge is also recommended for its location right on the Pacific coast. Be sure to reserve one of the cabins directly overlooking the beach.

As to activities, we focused on hiking, birdwatching, and wildflower viewing. Highlights included visits to Hurricane Hill, Ruby Beach, and the Hoh River Valley. The lodge at Lake Quinault has a fine breakfast, and you can watch black-headed grosbeaks and Stellar Jays feeding at bird feeders right outside the restaurant window. I have (or shortly will) post descriptions of many of our hikes.

Because Olympic National is a huge park, be prepared for long drives if you plan to visit multiple parts of the park. We combined our visit to Olympic with a stay at Mount Rainier's Paradise Inn (another long drive). If you have the time, do not miss this added attraction. We went in late July and the wildflower show was simply amazing. Remember when planning a visit to these higher elevation areas that many of the trails will not be clear of snow until July or even August.

I did the driving tour of Olypmic National Park loop a couple times and Neah Bay too. It's beautiful country but with few hotels on the Pacific side.
