Description

Hiking through Olympic National Park is the perfect way to sample the stunning beauty of the Pacific Northwest!

Over the course of four days, we will make our way through valleys, over waterfalls and up to the top of mountains. There will never be a dull moment as we camp each night on the shores of a different lake.

We begin our trip with a four hour drive from our meeting point in Richmond to the Sol duc Trailhead. From there we hike for a bit more than three miles to our first campsite at Deer Lake.

Along the way we will pass the spectacular Sol duc Falls and begin a fairly steep ascent to Deer Lake. By the top of the trail, most of the day hikers have gone home and we will be more secluded in this sublime nature.

On the second day, we will travel through a forest, enjoying lovely views from the occasional break in the trees. We will then make our way down to Lunch Lake and enjoy a nice and refreshing swim. After exploring a bit more of the area, we hunker down here for the night.

The next day, we hike up onto the High Divide Trail, enjoying views down into the valley floor below. We will eventually reach the Hoh Lake junction and take the path leading up to the summit of Bogachiel Peak, which will be our highest elevation of the trip, and where we receive stunning views of Mount Olympus.

On the final day, we will descend back to where we started through a lush forest composed of the park’s oldest growth hemlock and fir trees. The trail will eventually become more familiar as we approach the trailhead and our adventure will end.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this beautiful four-day hike through some of Washington’s most spectacular scenery!
