3 Best Hikes In Olympic National Park

Washington has some majestic natural sights that beg to be explored in person. Pictures don’t do it justice, and thankfully, there are plenty of parks and hiking trails to take in all the amazing views in the state. By booking directly with Surfcrest Resort, you are guaranteed to see some amazing coastal scenes, but you’ll also be near other gorgeous natural attractions with some of the best hikes, like Lake Quinault and Olympic National Park. For nature lovers, these are some of the best hikes in Olympic National Park.

Quinault Loop Trail

This four-mile loop takes you through the lush Olympic temperate rainforest and Quinault Lake. The trail follows the shores of Quinault Lake, and you’ll get amazing views of the Cascade Falls and Cedar Bog.

Quinault Big Cedar Trailhead

This trail is perfect for those who want to get up close to the immensely large trees in Washington. The cedars found along this trail are massive and give the trail its name. It’s a short trail, but it’s by no means an easy one to traverse. It tends to be muddy with plenty of exposed roots, so be prepared.

Higley Peak Trailhead

The Higley Peak Trailhead is a short and easy hike that will give you spectacular views of the surrounding forest. However, there is some elevation gain along the trail. When you reach the summit, bring your camera or smartphone to take pictures.
