An International Biosphere Reserve and a World Heritage Site, the Olympic National Park is essentially a synchronized succession of distinctive terrains. The park is a scenic escape defined by undulating alpine meadows and a stunning Pacific coastline. Its eastern fringe is an arid expanse that gently translates into a verdant rainforest towards the west. This park's diverse topography encompasses the snow-clad Mount Olympus, the emerald expanses of the Hoh Rainforest, and the Hurricane Ridge which is an unparalleled vantage point to soak in the celebrated park's scenic allure. Its environs are home to inhabitants ranging from the Hammond's flycatcher and Canadian lynx to snowshoe hares and Wilson's warblers.
