    This was my first time above 5,000 feet and my first time hiking in a National Park. I’m a decently fit person in my 30s and it was a challenge to maintain a good clip as the elevation gain comes throughout the long 7mi trek. Amazing views at the top although it can get cloudy, blocking some magnificent views. However, for being in October in the PNW, it was gorgeous. Some steep points but no equipment needed.

A popular trail in Olympic National Park, but the crowd thinned out after the first mile and a half. Beautiful vistas and wildflowers along the entire trail.
