Breathe in the crisp mountain air and green old-growth forest. Reserve your stay in the Pacific Northwest’s wooded wonderland with Olympic National Park cabins. Traverse along hiking and backpacking trails across verdant treelines—just don’t forget to pack a rain poncho.
The park spans three distinct ecosystems: mountain ranges, dense mossy forests, and ocean coastline. With such a varied landscape, you can poke around tide pools or enjoy whale watching in the morning, and finish a hike around Hurricane Hill by the afternoon. In the spring, the meadows burst with vibrant wildflowers, and the wildlife is more active, making it the best time to visit.
Things to do near Olympic National Park
Find your footing in the great outdoors.
- Hit the trails. Find the perfect trail, no matter your hiking skill. For an easier stroll, head to Rialto Beach along the Pacific Coast’s massive rockfaces and driftwood. Another popular and family-friendly hike is Hurricane Hill, which offers a view of Vancouver Island on clear days. For more of a challenge, backpackers journey out to High Divide Trail (Seven Lakes Basin Loop) for views of Mount Olympus.
- Watch for wildlife. Home to 56 species of mammal (including 24 marine mammals), 300 bird species, and 20 reptile species, Olympic National Park is buzzing with life. Spring is the best chance to catch a glimpse of the wildlife at Hurricane Ridge, Hoh Rainforest, and the drive-thru park, Olympic Game Farm. For whale watching, head to Destruction Island Viewpoint or Rialto Beach.
- Visit local hot spots. During your stay, enjoy a balance of natural and man-made wonders. Don’t miss the views at Sol Duc Falls and the Puget Sound is well worth the two-hour drive from the park. Plan a day trip to Seattle to see the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, and other city attractions.
