Hike #30: Olympic National Park Weekend
July 17-19, 2015
Mileage: 5-6 total, including Sol Duc Falls, Rialto Beach, and the Hall of Mosses trail
Elevation Gain: ?
A few weeks ago my parents were in town, and I decided to take them and Eric on a mini-adventure to the Olympic Peninsula. Throughout the weekend we drove the entire way around the Peninsula, and saw so many of the great sites the park has to offer.
A little bit of rain forest, a little bit of coast, a lot of good food, and wonderful family time. We had amazing weather and spent much of our days meandering through forest or across the beach, or driving along some of the most scenic routes imaginable. We hiked the Sol Duc Falls trail, traipsed at least a couple of miles across Rialto Beach and back, and explored the short Hall of Mosses trail in the Hoh Rain Forest. Such a wonderful weekend.
