Get ready to sweat! Mount Storm King is one of the most challenging, but rewarding day hikes in Olympic National Park. Our experience begins with a scenic 35-45 minute drive from Port Angeles to Lake Crescent, which will be our home base for the afternoon. From the lake, we will gain 2,000 feet elevation in just 2 miles as we hike to the summit of Mount Storm King. The switchbacks are steep and the hike is grueling, but once you see the final approach, adrenaline takes over. You will use three sets of ropes to assist with traction on an exposed cliffside as you hike to the summit. Upon arrival, you will forget about your burning leg muscles as you marvel at the sweeping views of Lake Crescent. Overall, the hike is 4 miles roundtrip and we allow time for a quick lunch and sightseeing before the hike. Date not available? Send us a message and we can set up a private tour for this hike on other dates if we're available!
