Olympic National Park Professional Review and Guide

"Occupying the major portion of the Olympic Peninsula, this is one of the wildest areas in the nation. In fact, the road network is deliberately confined to just a few miles near the edge of the park in several places, so that the wilderness will be preserved. The landscape here is some of the most diverse in the National Park System, with 57 miles of rocky beaches to glacier-covered mountain peaks. And, of course, there is the rain forest for which the area is so famous. The centerpiece of the park is 7,965-foot Mount Olympus, a glacial mountain that appears even taller because it rises so abruptly from the nearby shoreline.

The park boasts extraordinary meadows of wildflowers and dozens of varieties of trees, including some of America’s tallest. This great diversity has made Olympic a treasured national park as well as a World Heritage Park because of its great biological and geological significance. There is something for everyone in Olympic, one of America’s largest parks and among its most ravishing beauties! This eTrail explains in detail how to tour the park. In addition to a park map the details include driving tours, outdoor recreation, accommodations, campgrounds, dining, and more."
