Grand Ridge is appropriately named. The views are grand, the wildflowers are grand, and trekking across its wide open slopes is a grand experience. But it gets grander. Reaching an altitude of 6600 feet, this trail is among the highest in the Olympics and one of the most scenic, with nonstop views of jagged glacier-covered peaks, deep valleys of unbroken old growth, and miles upon miles of wildflower-saturated meadows and tundra.

Awesome views across the Strait of Juan De Fuca and into the Olympics. Pretty easy trail with a bit of up and down. You start right off in the high country. Best as a long day hike because of lack of water A bit of exposure on a couple parts of the trail that probably is not for the faint of heart.
