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.

A really nice hike with the kiddos (5 & 7). There’s a nice place to sit in the shade and have a snack at the river. Highly recommend.

very steep but very rewarding. Lots of wildflowers and bloom, bring your camera. So two herds of deer munching in Meadows of purple flowers. I did about 10 miles round trip and my knees are feeling it.

Great views the whole way for switchbacks. Short but steep, light snow and a little gnarly in a few places. Nothing too serious. Payoff at the top is insane.

beautiful maintained well marked trail and pretty falls at the end of the loop

Great view, easy hike to a beautiful waterfall.

Short little walk to a beautiful waterfall. Really great for kids, it wasn’t a strenuous hike. Beautiful trees, mossy forest floor, really enjoyed it!

This hike was a well trafficked trail through the olympic national park. It was my frist time to Hoh Rainforest and I definitely would come back again to hike the many other hikes in this park. By the time we got to the park it was crowded but managable, alot of parking space. Easy peasy walk in the park with beautiful forest green lush all around. Views were gorgeous. Suitable for all. Make sure to bring a camera!

Incredible view from the top. The hike is arduous and steep, but you’re rewarded with a stunning view of crescent lake from the top. The rope section was a little scary for my novice girlfriend but she climbed it just fine. Then at the top scrambling the rocks to the lookout was also a little sketchy but well worth the climb. Great views all around. If it’s cloudy, wait about 10 minutes and it might disappear, leaving one of the best views I’ve ever seen

Need to show the National park pass at the entrance. There are too much mosses and you can see the big slug .

Went on May 1. Great hike and workout. Wear solid boots. Some loose rock. Some narrow areas and steep areas.

View was pretty from the top, but i thought it was quite difficult! Prepare yourself!

Sick. I was solo and chickened out at the ropes. Still awesome views up there. Great weather and all was well 5/15/19

No need to show the discover pass and there are free parking. You can see too much mosses tree it was amazing atmosphere. Really recommend place.

May 14th Maybe the most profound backpacking experience of my life. This forest is sacred. You can make it all the way to glacier meadow with no additional gear, though it gets squirrelly more than a few times towards the tail end of that. I stayed at the 3 mile campsite on the first night and the 12.4 the second. Actually took my pack up to elk lake to camp, but that site is for normies and sucks. Left my pack there to go up to see Olympus. Got to the cable bridge about 17 miles in, but I was solo and hadn't seen another person all day, so I quit while I was ahead and went back to camp. This hike is a must if you like hiking. 10/10

Went to see the Tree of Life last weekend. Amazing day on the beach.

The directions aren’t exactly accurate on the “get to”. When you take Jorstad creek and follow 2480 you’ll reach a closed gate. From there you’ll see a sign “elk lake trail 3” follow that about 3.4 miles to a “upper elk lake” sign. Then it’s about .25 miles up to the upper elk lake creek. The 3.4 miles from the closed road is logging road which is why it’s marked easy. I give this trail a 2 because while it was easy there wasn’t much to see. A few cool ravines and the mountains peeking through. At Upper Elk Lake it was beautiful and clear, but not a lot of area to sit and enjoy the lake.

Fun hike, peaceful with great views. Took us 4 hours with many stops to enjoy nature. The waterfalls are gorgeous. Had to climb over giant trees on the path a few times. Wandering through the campground at the end isn’t ideal, but it won’t stop me from coming back again.

Now The trail is a small dirt road. The ridge trail which borders the road is closed due to erosion and small alpine flowers, etc. still great views on top. Short walk 3 mile, it’s a quick hike for the best views on the peninsula!!

Yup, a great trail and the valley is stunning. Did encounter some bears but they were thoroughly bored by humans. A bear cannister is required for camping in the valley. The bears there don't associate people with available food, which is how we want it to stay!

had to give this stars in order to enter a comment. As of yesterday the trail cannot be continued past the junction of trail to Anderson Pass and O'Neil Pass trail - due to an avalanche. I only got as far as White River, which I chose not to cross. A few others did but it was too high for my comfort. Trail up to that point was great. A few downed trees but easy to get over. Enchanted Valley is stunning!

Great trail, a beautiful clear day, a bit slippery on the ropes towards the end but enjoyed every bit of it.

The snow is pretty soft but easily negotiated. pretty steep in sections but nothing too wild. I underestimated this peak but I think mostly because of how much snow is still up there. Start early.

The trail is not that difficult, very clean and just be careful with the wash out. Lots of loose rocks.
