A classic loop to one of the most famed places within the nearly one-million-acre Olympic National Park—this hike has it all. Sparkling alpine lakes, resplendent alpine meadows, breathtaking views, abundant wildlife, primeval forest, inspiring waterfalls—and crowds. Backpackers come from near and far to experience this lofty ridge teetering high above the lush emerald Hoh Rain Forest and within the shadows of glacier-cloaked Mount Olympus, the highest and snowiest summit on the Olympic Peninsula.
