Backpacking the Remote Pacific Coast of The Olympic Peninsula
Backpacking along the Olympic Peninsula’s Pacific coast is wonderfully primordial and remote. With few access points, and each located far away, the land is rugged and little traveled. Other than the requirement to get a permit in advance to be in the area, there are few restrictions to your movement and you can camp wherever feels good.
The journey offers wide open beaches, sea and land and air life, huge forests, silhouetted sea stacks, massive driftwood, contemplative sunsets, gnarly steep rope ladders, and a fun sense of adventure away from the cars and campgrounds.
