    Steven Steinberg reviewed Mount Olympus Trail

    about 1 year ago

    The hike is challenging, but worth the effort. I actually found the descent more difficult because of the dry, rocky terrain. I almost gave up halfway through the rock climbing, but after watching a few other hikers navigate the terrain was comfortable moving forward. My only disappointment with the trail is how near it is to a high speed roadway and the significant amount of road noise during most of the hike, especially the first half. As others have noted, it isn't well sign-posted and this is most egregious towards the beginning when it is easy to miss the main trail. Just remember on the way up you should be ascending most of the time. If you are on flat terrain for more than 30-50 meters then you probably lost the main trail.
