Mt. Olympus is located in the heart of Olympic National Park. As it is surrounded by long forested valleys, and jagged snowy peaks, it is difficult to see from any vantage point along a road. Before planning a trip, be sure to negotiate the rules/regulations of the national park. The climbing route isn't really straightforward... If you haven't been to the top before, it can be really tricky to know just where to cross certain ridges and start the final rock pitch to the summit - be sure to do your homework before you go!
