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.

The winding Hoh River is fantastic, whether driving or hiking, you see the most beautiful vistas. The trail was not too challenging with great spots to rest along the river. We saw elk along the way, which was very exciting. Wonderful photographic opportunities.

There are loop trails closer to the visitor center that most people use while visiting the Hoh Rain Forest. This trail is an out-and-back hike along the river but, if you can handle a longer hike, you can get away from some of the crowds and enjoy some solitude, if only briefly, along the trail. There a good places to stop for views of the river or to have a snack or picnic along the way. Bring a rain jacket - it’s not called a rain forest for nothing! The forest is so beautiful - at times you just want to lay down in the ferns and moss - it’s nature’s carpet. But resist that temptation so you preserve the beauty for everyone else to see.

This is a well marked and well tread trail. Many backpackers use this trail. There are several areas along the trail where you can find a peaceful place to sit and enjoy a snack or lunch. The trail is a nice alternative to the Hall of Mosses and Spruce trails which can get crowded.

This is a beautiful trail and a good long option to the two short trails at the Hoh Rainforest. Come early for the best chance at seeing wildlife. Note that while it is called a river trail, you are not always in sight of the Hoh river, and are often hiking up and above it. We saw people carrying babies in backpacks here, but it probably wouldn't be great for toddlers or older people with mobility issues. There are a lot of ups and downs, and lots of tree roots that might trip some people up.

It's quite a drive to get here. The trail itself is easy, flat and well maintained. There are indeed some gorgeous old growth trees and lots of moss. Our highlight was sighting a dozen elk feeding along the river. If you're short on time, there's a mini-version of this at Marymere falls (old growth trees, moss on a flat trail). Hoh is beautiful and very different - but I found myself itching to get back on a mountain trail!
