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!

At Miyar Adventures, we know that every trip is as much about discovering yourself as it is about discovering the world. Miyar was founded because of our passion for climbing - a passion we will strive to share with you whether you join us for a trip close to home or in a remote corner of the Himalayas.

We strive to be your trusted companion as you chase your life-long dreams. We believe it is our duty to ensure that you are safe and that you have fun every time you climb with us.

We want to make climbing accessible to all adventure-seekers, regardless of their age and climbing background. And when we go climbing with seasoned climbers, we make sure they have enough of a challenge.

Miyar's guides have relevant training through the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) for the terrain in which they guide. This includes training in rock climbing, ice climbing, glacier travel, and snow sports, as well as avalanche training and Wilderness First Responder or higher level medical certification.

Sandeep and his wife, Jasmine, are lovely guides! We did a 1 day intro to rock climbing excursion with them and we had a great time! They communicated well and provided us with a fun and safe day of climbing. They chose routes based on our experience and taught us a lot. I highly recommend hiring Miyar Adventures. We have already shared their info with friends and family.

Everything was great. From the explore share professional that connected me to the guide service, and the guide on the mountain.

Five days of awesome is all I can say. Glen our instructor and guide was extremely knowledgeable. I had previous glacier mountaineering experience and his techniques were so much more efficient than what I had been taught. To top it off we had a great summit day.

Whole group summited! Huge thanks to the guides for helping us all get there! It's certainly not an easy climb, but the entire experience was fantastic. Especially loved the snow skills training on the second day. Lots of fun was had practicing the self arrest & team arrest. The team arrest training was a huge confidence builder to see that I wasn’t going to take the entire team down if I fell The lead guide (Glen) was fabulous. You can tell he really enjoys sharing his passion for the outdoors with the guests on his trip. Folks in the store are super helpful as well. Sandeep (owner) is great, and have talked with him in the store & via email several times to get advice. Great pre-trip guidance (including a meeting the night before the climb to make sure you have all the gear you need & nothing you don’t), and you can tell how much Sandeep cares about making sure every guest has a great experience. Lots of reasonably priced gear rental options available here as well if you aren’t sure if mountaineering is for you. Considering a Kili trip while I’m still in good hiking shape, and they’ll be the first place I look at if I decide to book.

I took the Mountaineering skills course (5 days) in Baker. I learned so much about Glacier travel, rope management, crevasse rescue, and much more! Glen, our guide was awesome and highly knowledgeable. We also got to summit Mt. Baker during the course which was the most magical part! I HIGHLY recommend them!
