Did it to Olympus station, camped and went back the next day. The hike isn't that long but it was quite warm and humid. We saw a black bear and it's cup what was really nice and camping along the rover was great.

Truly an amazing Hike and Climb!!! The Blue Glacier on a full moon is unbelievable and Mount Olympus has been on my list for the last couple of years... it is incredible!!

Unless you're planning on hiking all 20+ miles of this thing, I'd recommend having a plan or goal landmark to reach before you take off. Elsewise you might feel yourself just kind of wandering aimlessly trying to arbitrarily decide when to turn around.

There's tons of beauty here and frequent access to the river. There's also multiple waterfalls as you near the three-mile mark. These may serve as a good turnaround point for many. However, any distance traveled here should be worthy and enjoyable. Great temperate rainforest environment with a steadily flat and easy pathway throughout.

great trail that is out and back. you have many destinations to chose from our just pick a distance and turn around. we went to the 3mi waterfall and bridge. it is equal up n down out and back. I love that compared to up out and down back trails. we did the mosses trail at .8mi and the 3mi out and 3mi back waterfall in about 2.5hrs. parking is packed afternoon in summer months!
