Gray Wolf Ridge needs some exertion to get to but once there you are rewarded with one of the most spectacular views of the northeast Olympic Wilderness and beyond. This ridge includes such peaks as Mt. Tyler, Mt. Baldy, and the Gray Wolf Ridge towards Mt. Deception.

Hiked Grey Wolf River today. It was a nice hike mostly along the river with some pretty terrific camping spots.
The trail is in fairly good shape except for a few very narrow spots and a bit overgrown.

I would come back to camp but with so many other amazing places to get to, I wouldn't put this one any higher on my list.

One of my new favorite hikes. It's an incredible ridge walk for someone like me who is not a mountain climber. It has huge views of the Olympics and wildflower meadows. No water but you may find some lingering snowfields. I always access this ridge by the Upper Maynard Burn Trail.
