Marmot Pass

Marmot Pass Professional Review and Guide

"This hike offers an argument against those who thought that all the deep, mossy-green rainforests were on the west side of the Olympic range. The trail follows the Big Quilcene River through a deep, ancient forest filled with towering firs and hemlocks, many bearded with drooping mosses and lichens.

Later, the trail climbs into drier, thinner forests and eventually reaches high into the alpine world of heather meadows and rocky peaks. Dogs will love the lower route because it dances over many small streams and frequently drops close to the main river, affording canines ample opportunities to slip into the cold waters for a refreshing dip."
