  • If you love trees, mountains and moss -- you will love this park. Parts of it are even on the Pacific coast. We particularly enjoyed the Sol Duc area and the Grove of the Ancients. 
  • This forest is what you would expect from nature. Immerse yourself in a world, in which you can forget everything around them.

  • Walk to the right of the salmon cascades and get down on the rocks to see the salmon swimming in the lower pool. Some try to jump the cascades but do not seem to ever make it up. Relaxing area. Worth ...  read more »
  • This is one of the most incredible National Parks in the country in my opinion. There are so many things to see with such different environments. You could hike for miles, on or off trail. You can see magnificent beaches. Enjoy incredible lakes. Fish, camp, swim, photograph... The possibilities are endless. If you ever wanted to check out an incredible National Park, this is the one to go to.
  • This place is so beautiful. My one star knock off was because the roads are so winding with so many sharp switchbacks, I got intensely car sick on the ride home. So slow down and be careful. But the views of the PNW are just unbeatable. So beautiful and pristine.
  • Olympic National Park is probably one of the best places to bring your family to enjoy the beauty of Washington's peaks and wildlife. If you like being active there is tons of hikes around the area which allow you to take in the breathtaking views that will have your family craving for more. One hike I defiantly recommend is Hurricane Hill which I'd personally say is an extremely easy hike for the gorgeous view of the Olympics, Puget Sound, and Vancouver Island.
  • I've been to Hurricane Ridge, Ruby Beach and the Hoh Rain forest. Each is different and equally incredible. Hurricane Ridge has the fantastic views that look like the Alps. We hiked up Hurricane Hill Trail and got to see both the mountains and the sea. We also saw mountain goats. Ruby Beach is a gorgeous area with pebbly beaches and logs strewn about. There always seems to be a mist in the air, which gives it a dreamy feeling. The Hoh rain forest is like out of a movie. You almost expect to see elves and fairies come out from behind the trees. Everything is green and covered in shaggy moss. This park is huge and much of it is only accessible by hiking in, which makes it even more intriguing. I'm lucky to have this area near me, and I'm looking forward to seeing more.
  • The variety of ecosystems here is amazing! On my most recent visit we spent time along the coastline hiking the beach and exploring the tide pools, in the temperate rain forest, and in the alpine environment of the Hurricane Ridge area. You could easily spend several days at each of these spots!
