Marmot Pass and Buckhorn Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"This is a very popular trail that was once described in another guidebook as being the best day hike on the Olympic Peninsula. I think that is an overstatement, but there is no denying that this is a wonderful hike with a great deal of variety along the way. Here, you will enjoy miles of ancient forests, a clear and cascading stream, plenty of wildflowers, the opportunity to see wildlife, and stupendous views from trail’s end.

Though better examples of all of these features can be found on other trips, few hikes can boast of including them all on the same trail. The journey is relatively long, so only fairly strong day hikers should attempt it, but it can also be done as a moderate overnight hike, which would allow you to stay longer and enjoy the trip’s many charms."
