36 Photos to Inspire You to Visit Olympic National Forest

 

36 Reasons to Visit Olympic National ParkOlympic National Forest is a Washington travel must see! It’s great for hiking, camping, or just driving through and admiring the beautiful forests, waterfalls, and amazing views this national park has to offer. Located on the Olympic Peninsula, it’s about a 2-hour drive from Seattle. Some of the Olympic National Park highlights included: Hoh Rainforest, Hurricane Ridge, Marymere Falls, Olympic Peninsula Waterfall Trail, Quinault Rain Forest, Sol Duc Falls & Hot Springs, Lake Crescent, and the amazingly beautiful pacific ocean beaches!

A couple of years ago I road tripped with my aunt through Olympic National Park and it is one of my favorite destinations to travel in America! If these photos don’t convince you to go, I don’t know what will:
