Tour Summary

The Olympic Mountains can obtain 30-40 feet of snow during the winter season, restricting access to many areas of the park. However, below 2,000 feet to sea-level, winter has a more gentle touch on the Olympic Peninsula. We created this group tour to savor two unique elements of winter on the Peninsula: snow-capped forests and coastal storm watching.

The tour begins with a 1.5 mile hike through Lake Crescent's old growth forest to reach the stunning 90 foot Marymere Falls. With the right conditions, we can see the falls surrounded with snow or even partially frozen if lucky. Then we drive to the most northwest point in the contiguous United States at Cape Flattery. There, we will hike a scenic one-mile trail with boardwalks, leading us to different viewpoints of incredible coastal caves, seastacks, and crashing waves, until reaching the most NW point. Watching the waves of the Strait of Juan De Fuca and Pacific Ocean collide into the coastal coves is breathtaking, especially with some stormy winter waves.
