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.

Amazing day in June. Perfect weather and lots of wildlife: Black bears, mountain goats, grouse, Olympic marmots, and deer!

Gorgeous, old trees covered by moss along the way. Kid-friendly trail. Beautiful 3-part waterfall. The bridge is a good place to take pictures from. Lots of people on the trail, during season.

This was a very easy drive. Would not recommend it though if you don't have all wheel drive or a 4 wheel drive vehicle. That being said, there was a mustang at the top.

amazing views! one of the best I've ever been on. but it does get pretty sketchy at the too. you're going strait up on loose gravel with only a very thin rope to hold you. it was pretty scary, bring great shoes.

Absolutely stunning with amazing views! A must hike!

Fantastic hike with spectacular views. If you're around on a clear day you can't miss it.

I definitely wouldn't consider this a moderate hike. It was extremely steep in places and had lots of long uphill climbs. Parts of the trail had snow that was manageable, but one section had a steep slope covered in snow. We slid our way down, going back up it was a job though. The section leading to Mount Angeles was super steep! Lost the trail several times and had a hard time scrambling up the gravel slopes. Made it all the way to the rock face of Mount Angeles, but turned around because I was terrified haha. Didn't see any goats, and got sunburned, but the views were stunning! It was worth it to see those views.

From hoodsport is very easy to get there even without GPS. The trail is very easy until you get to the snow, that's the real challenege. we got there a little late so we could not make it to the summit. Summer trail is highly recommended even though everybody is taking the other one. Bring poles, something to slide on, crampons, gloves...good shoes (this way you will enjoy it more).

Challenging but very rewarding. Went on a clear, sunny day with just microspikes and poles, which was a mistake-- definitely bring an ice axe!!! Summer trail is still covered in snow, so we went up the winter route. There is an extremely steep, icy section where you might fall into rocks on one side or a steep chute on the other. Two experienced, fully equipped hikers fell in that same area on the descent. One had a broken collarbone and another a dislocated shoulder. SAR helicopter came for an airlift. Was terrified going down that same section sans ice axe. Don't underestimate this mountain!
