Rainforests to glaciers and back-Wow!! The diverse trip begins with a 9 mile stretch along the torquise Hoh River, mainly treading through deep temperate rainforest. Wildlife abounds: deer, bear, elk, and slugs galore. Make sure your rain gear is in good order, because it is known to rain here. The trail than climbs gradually through several different ecosystems before it reaches the stunning vistas of Mount Olympus to be seen at Glacier Meadows. I recommend taking the Terminus Trail, which leads to the base of Blue Glacier, and some awesome scrambling opportunities. Conveniently spaced campsites, best done in 3 or 4 days. If you go up to Blue Glacier before July, make sure you have an ice ax and are prepared to use it. Enjoy!
