Bogachiel Peak Loop
This is a difficult loop trail to Bogachiel Peak in Olympic National Park. It is a grueling day hike or a nice backpacking loop.
This loop is for serious hikers/backpackers only as it does a cumulative 5000 ft of elevation over 18 miles. This hike has it all, from dense forest with creeks and old growth to high alpine meadows filled with wildflowers and spectacular views. People love this trail but so do animals and insects. Come prepared with bug and bear spray, just in case.
