Olympic National Park Overview
Washington’s State’s Olympic Peninsula is one of the most unique and intriguing regions on the planet. Temperate rainforests, wild ocean beaches, snow-capped mountains, pristine lakes and rivers, migrating marine life and bounty of farm-to-table experiences are just the start of what you will find here. At almost one million acres, including 73 miles of Pacific coastline, Olympic National Park is both a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an International Biosphere Reserve, visited by over three million people annually. Almost 95 percent of the Park is designated wilderness, and home to 26 endemic species. In addition to natural beauty, the region also boasts a myriad of custom “loops and trails” for visitors to enjoy.
With its incredible range of precipitation and elevation, diversity is the hallmark of Olympic National Park. Encompassing nearly a million acres, the park protects a vast wilderness, thousands of years of human history, and several distinctly different ecosystems, including glacier-capped mountains, old-growth temperate rain forests, and over 70 miles of wild coastline.
