Situated along an isolated peninsula in the Pacific Northwest, the three sprawling ecosystems of Olympic National Park are so expansive and pristine that you’d swear they are the stuff of myth. From the rugged and unbroken Pacific coastline to the glaciated peak of Mt. Olympus, there is much to explore in this legendary land. Rain forests in the western portion of the park receive more than 150 inches of rain per year, more than any other place in the continental United States. While the area beckons intrepid travelers to explore its secrets, no paved road penetrates into the heart of its wilderness. But fear not, brave pilgrim: all you need to find the path of the gods is a pair of hiking boots.
