Such seriinity. The green was literally everywhere. You just want to pet the trees and sit among them. It was damp and old and new and furry. I loved this place because of its uniqueness.

They had a huge telescope on Hurricane ridge for night viewing of the sky which was awesome. Then drove the loop to... More

The fog rolls in and out all day; rain is possible at any time - something to be prepared for. We took a big plastic bag for our good camera when we went hiking just in case - we were very glad we had it one time. The trees dripping with moss are beautiful!

Olympic National forest is one the most beautiful national parks I have visited. Trails lead to glaciers or short gently day hikes, icy rivers flow down from the mountains, and a golden quiet surrounds the visitor...unless a group of loud talking people come by. It is magically peaceful place to visit.

Have been to 45 national parks and this is definately in my top 5. It runs from spectacular rocky Pacific beaches to rain forest to high mountains. Olympic has it all. We stayed at both Kalaloch Lodge on the coast and at Sol Duc Hot Springs. Only a couple hours apart but what a contrast. The coast is beautiful and... More

This was a great side trip from Ocean Shores WA about 50 miles. Be ready to get wet though as guess what it rains there. We really enjoyed it just take a rain jacket and good rain boots and go for it. There are ferns and mushrooms everywhere. We say several deer and 3 herds of elk driving around. They... More

One of only a few temperate rainforest in the world. A must visit place. The trees are astounding - gives you a real sense of time and our insignificance.

I spent three days in the Olympic National Park area. Day 1: Hurricane Ridge visitor's center. Hiked the Klahanne Ridge (hike was great but quite exposed)...Drove all the way to Second Beach. Please note the tide timings before you go. Beach wasnt crowded at all. Day 2: Hoh Rain forest. Wanted to hike the 16 mile trail near Hoh Rain... More
