Geyser Valley is a misnomer: there aren’t any geysers in this valley. The Press Expedition of 1889–90—that group of intrepid souls intent on exploring the Olympic interior—either mistook thumping grouse or swirling low clouds when they bestowed their geothermic moniker on this valley. But geyser or no, you won’t be steaming after hiking this beautiful region of the Elwha Valley. Stroll alongside the Elwha River’s churning waters and lounge on its grassy and rocky banks. Snoop around pioneer homesteads, and scope for elk and bear feeding in surrounding pastures. Wildlife and history spout from the Geyser Valley.
