Top 3 Adventure Hacks for Olympic National Park
1) Soak In The Views From Hurricane Ridge
During winter, the viewpoint known as Hurricane Ridge offers numerous winter sports activities. Hurricane Ridge is the most easily accessed mountain area within Olympic National Park. In clear weather, fantastic views can be enjoyed throughout the year.
2) Go Backpacking Along The Beach
An unusual feature of Olympic National Park is the opportunity for backpacking along the beach. The length of the coastline in the park is sufficient for multi-day trips, with the entire day spent walking along the beach. Although idyllic compared to toiling up a mountainside, one must be aware of the tide; at the narrowest parts of the beaches, high tide washes up to the cliffs behind, blocking passage.
