Mt. Olympus is located deep in the center of the mountainous Olympic Peninsula in western Washington State. A 17 mile trek is required to get to the base of the mountain. The hike passes through a long stretch of incredible low-land temperate rain forest. The immense trees alert one's senses of scale and time - making us realize how small we all are.
