Want a little bit of everything, and not afraid of a challenge? This trip traverses through rainforest, high alpine lakes and passes, and down to the famous Olympic Hot Springs.
The first day starts off near tumbling Sol Duc Falls before a steep and heart-pounding climb into the Seven Lakes Basin. Dramatic views accompany use past Bogachiel Peak, alpine wildflowers, and panoramas of the Olympic Mountains. Day 2 takes us along the High Divide Trail to Appleton Pass, and then a steep descent on day 3 is rewarded by a camp next to Olympic Hot Springs. We’ll finish the hike along Boulder Creek before emerging near Port Angeles. Photo opportunities, wildlife, and serenity abound.
