Olympic National Forest


Olympic National Forest offers diverse recreation opportunities for day-trippers and vacationers alike. Visitors are rewarded with sounds of rushing rivers, lush rain forests, alpine wildflowers, and views of the Puget Sound from the many peaks on the Olympic mountain range.  Five wilderness areas offer solitude and a chance to experience the rich biodiversity the Olympic Peninsula is known for.    Don't know where to go or how to get there? We've organized our information into six large areas to help you find a place on the forest for your favorite activity. These areas border Olympic National Park and follow major watershed boundaries across the forest. All areas may be accessed by Highway 101 which loops around the entire peninsula.Jump to recreation site current conditions below the mapWhere do you want to go?Recreation areasForksDungenessHood Canal-NorthHood Canal-SouthWynoocheeQuinaultKnow Before You Go!View information about maps, passes, regulations, safety and more.
