Elk Mountain

Elk Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"Anchoring the western end of aptly named Grand Ridge, Elk Mountain offers some of the best views in Olympic National Park, which shouldn’t be surprising because it features the highest maintained trail in the preserve.

The “mountain” is really just a knob atop a long alpine ridge, and the trail doesn’t even reach the official summit. But who really cares when the views from the trail itself are unsurpassed? And because the trailhead is already very high, you can reach these enchanting highlands after just a short (but steep) uphill. Once on the ridge, the walking is easy and about as close to hiking heaven as you can imagine."
