Situated on the Olympic Peninsula, this park ranges from Pacific shoreline with tide pools to temperate rainforests to Mount Olympus. The glaciated Olympic Mountains overlook the Hoh Rain Forest and Quinault Rain Forest, the wettest area of the continental United States.
After an easy hike you have to scale down a bluff, which could be difficult for some. There are roots and trees to grab on to. Be careful. Arriving at the beach is amazing. Try and catch it where you can be there for both low and high tide. But if you can only choose one, try for low tide. We found starfish and anenome. Beautiful and peaceful place. We ended up walking down to the point to the south. Looks can be deceiving!!! It's far!!! But I highly recommend this hike.
Beautiful short hike with some good elevation changes. Hiking trail and bridges are lovely, and the two views of the falls were stunning. Lake Crescent is great any time of year, but this is a doable hike even if you're just passing through, or a quick drive from Sequim or Port Angeles.
