Walking across the Olympic National Park from the north near Hurricane Ridge. We would backpack south through the Olympic Mountains using a custom route. Our path would include 2 days of off trial travel, intersect the Pacific Northwest Trail for a full day, sleeping on the shoulder of the Bailey Range and then continue southbound into the Quinault Rainforest; using a mostly high route.
Join our 10 day adventure, told through photography and video.
Editors Warning: Map reading, route finding and compass required. Several of the days include a traverse that require basic mountaineering skills. It is not suggested for someone that does not feel comfortable with exposer or leaving a trail.
|Second day off trail|
Editors Warning: Map reading, route finding and compass required. This traverse has several points where a fear of heights is not welcomed. There are also several bad gully crossings; a slip would be fatal. Rock scrambling and glacier travel skills are also required.
