Mount Ellinor is a peak in the Olympic Mountains of Washington, United States. It is located in an area designated as the Mount Skokomish Wilderness. The mountain is a popular day hike in the summer months; the summit is reachable via a steep-but-brief 3.3-mile (5.3 km) trail which gains about 3,200 feet (980 m) in elevation from the lower trailhead.

There are two trailheads, both of which are accessed from National Forest Road 24 north of Lake Cushman. This lower trailhead lies at an elevation of 2,666 feet (813 m), and the upper trailhead at about 3,400 feet (1,000 m); a Northwest Forest Pass is required to park at the upper trailhead.
