This 38-mile hike RT is the stuff you read about in adventure articles, with 3,430 feet of vertical climb in your 3, 4, or 5 day hike to experience the diversity of the world-famous moss-draped Rain Forest, the raging of the Hoh River, and the whispering of the Blue Glacier, one of 311 glaciers in the Olympic National Park.  Hike nine miles up from the Hoh Ranger Station to the 1930’s Olympic Guard Station at 900 feet elevation, or continue on over the “Hi Hoh” Bridge, and up to Glacier Meadows at 4,300 feet, then day-hike to Blue Glacier for an intimate experience with the ancient giant. You’ll never forget the icy breath of this one!  Read more about the lodgings, B&Bs, and campsites in this region here.
