Lonely Planet Experiences: Excursion to Olympic Mountain National Park

As one of the most diverse ecosystems in the United States, Olympic National Park holds much for the outdoor enthusiast. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is in a remote peninsula nestled along the Pacific Ocean, and its unique biosphere boasts jagged mountain peaks, gorgeous wildlife, and glaciers.<br><br>Your small group excursion (you and up to 9 others) will take a full day, as you are driven to the highlights of what make Olympic National Park so special. The entire tour consists of a few hikes, amounting to roughly 4.5 miles of easy to moderate hiking, with lots of breaks as needed. After Hurricane Ridge, you will stop for lunch, where your guide can recommend the best places to eat. For this tour, dress in layers, as the weather patterns can vary throughout the day. Hiking boots are recommended, though not required, and the hikes require minimal levels of fitness. Return to Seattle at approximately 7:30 pm.

Probably the greenest place I've ever seen in my entire life, yes simultaneously the most colorful, with so many shades of green. Insanely peaceful and relaxing hike. Take in the trees and mosses and enjoy.

We did the Spruce trail. it was quiet. A bit longer than some of the others closer to the visitors center and MUCH quieter - no screaming children. It was a fascinating trail with beautiful trees and sign to explain what you are looking at. We even say a bob cat in the brush. It was just sitting and watching. This is worth the 18 mile drive in. The visitors center is not open right now due to Covid-19 but there is a ranger behind plexi-glass to answer questions. He confirmed we saw a bob cat.

The most unique were the decaying nursing trees from which new trees sprung. Also many trees seem to be standing on their roots. The Spruce Nature Trail, though longer at 1.2 miles, was actually the easier trail as the path was mostly flat. Some of the tree configurations were intriguing. Though the Hall of Mosses Trail was only 0.8 miles, it had more of a gradient, more steps, and rocky places. I had seen rainforests before but this trail had it's own beauty, especially the Maple Grove. The creek was crystal clear.

We enjoyed walking through the Hoh Rain Forest and observing what I called 'creepy trees' whose branches are covered in moss. It was a tranquil way to spend some quality time together.

An enchanted forest. Simply gorgeous throughout the entire hike. The trails were relatively flat and easy. We were not disappointed.
