Olympic National Park is a boating paradise. You won’t want to miss the sight of the crystalline blue waters of Lake Crescent – a glacially carved lake tucked into the northern foothills of the park. Formed by a landslide thousands of years ago, this spectacular lake can now be explored via rented rowboats, the perfect way to discover beaches and fishing holes inaccessible by foot.
Kalaloch located within the Olympic National Park sits on a 50-foot bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Take a boat out to watch the whales or see the sea lions, seals and otters playing in the harbour. Walk along the seven amazing beaches and explore the tide pools or hike on one of the parks many verdant trails. Visit the northernmost beach in the area – Ruby Beach, named for the ruby-like crystals that get washed up on the beach.
Hurricane Ridge, with its wind-sculpted forests and snow-fed meadows, is the easiest way to access the high country in Olympic National Park. Beautiful scenery awaits you with stunning ridges, lakes, and valleys.
