In Olympic National Park, ancient rainforests and ocean tidal pools at lower elevations contrast with wildflower-filled alpine meadows and snowcapped peaks. The park's 373,120 hectares (922,000 acres) include numerous hiking trails that stretch from moist, mossy, and leafy valleys up to jagged mountain peaks that hold snow into summer. Anglers cast their lines into some of the hundreds of lakes and streams that hold 37 species of fish, including coho, chinook, and sockeye salmon, while birders try to spot a few of the 250 species, including blue grouse, belted kingfisher, warblers, woodpeckers, kinglets, and sparrows. Tide pools hold colorful life forms, such as green anemones and purple starfish, while gray whales appear off the coast from March to May, and black bears, cougars, and elk roam the park's interior year-round. The lower elevations of the park remain snow-free through winter--the extra moisture during the rainy season brightens the forest's greenery.

Absolutely STUNNING National Park! We hiked in a couple of spots in the park and there is really nowhere you can go that isn't beautiful. There was a lot of wildlife, we saw deer, garter snakes...

I was here back in mid October, was a exceptional national park. It has many different environments mountains, lush forests, and coastal beaches in the west coast, all of which are well worth exploring. It involves a lot of driving to get around the park it’s huge n ya have to drive around the perimeters to get anywhere, the Mountain View’s we’re my favorite but it’s highly debatable, the coast n forests might be a better bet in the winter, such a short drive from Seattle this park offers a little bit of everything highly recommend.
This national park is also very beautiful similar to other national parks of Washington. This is huge national park and ideally one day is not just enough to explore the park. There is a good amount of driving involved if you have to come all parts of the park. Within this park you explore mountains, you can explore rainforest and you can explore beaches. One park gives you taste of so many different landscapes
