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.

Awesome beach, perfect spot to park and walk to some excellent tide pools (Hole in the Wall) only 30-60 minutes walk away. Nice even when weather is cloudy and gray.

It's hard to get a clear day at Washington's western coastal beaches, but we finally succeeded! This beach is full of driftwood and pebbles, and has several sea snacks. Go at high tide to witness the roaring waves. There are no restrooms here, but the Mora campground is nearby. It was misty in the morning and not crowded on a weekday.

There's something magical about Olympic National Park and Rialto Beach is the epitome of that magic. I've seen plenty of white sand beaches (and even silver sand, black sand, and glass beaches) but something about this beach has so much character. The driftwood and the rock formations add something so lovely to the beach. We went for sunset on our trip hiking through Olympic National Park and it was one of the most peaceful and romantic moments of our lives. The beautiful cascading waves of the Pacific with the sun sparkling over them as it sets were absolutely gorgeous. The photos speak for themselves. Definitely make time for this beach!

While visiting Olympic National Park, we stopped at this beach. The beach was extremely busy and the parking lot was overflowing. It was cold and not the most pleasant trip. It featured a lot of driftwood. The restrooms had no soap or hand sanitizer.
