Fields of wildflowers, wildlife. panoramic mountain views, views of the Juan de Fuca straight and Canada to the north. Go at sunrise or sunset for a truly spectacular experience!
This gorgeous and fairly easy hike winds around the ridge, next to pines and cedars, and ends with breathtaking views of the Olympic Mountains on one side, and the Juan de Fuca Straight on the other. It's a well-groomed, 3.2 mile hike in the Olympic National Park that is ideal for all ages. My husband and I were on a trip in the Pacific Northwest, and just having gotten off a late ferry from British Columbia, we were going to skip this hike and head straight for the coast in the morning. I am forever grateful that we rallied, grabbed some road food and camera gear, and headed on this spectacular sunset stroll at one of the most tranquil and jaw-dropping national parks you can imagine. As you know, there is an element of luck in finding those magic moments in photography, and if you get out there enough times, you just may find it.
