Grand Ridge Professional Review and Guide
"The views from this open ridge are grand, the wildﬂowers are grand, and hiking this trail, the highest in the Olympics is a grand experience. Enjoy nonstop views of craggy, glacier-covered peaks; deep, emerald valleys of unbroken old-growth forest; and miles of wildﬂower-saturated meadows and alpine tundra.
If you can’t arrange for a car shuttle to make this a one-way journey, it’s a tough 14.8-mile roundtrip. However, the 5-mile out-and-back to Elk Mountain, the highest point on the ridge, makes for a good day hike.
