Washington's Olympic Peninsula features a stunning national park, rugged alpine peaks, grand rivers, a wild coastline, and some of the wettest places in the Lower 48. Expert hiker Craig Romano has explored them all, and shows you not only iconic destinations such as the verdant Hall of Mosses and the jaw-dropping viewpoints of Hurricane Ridge, but also some personal favorites, such as the Salmon Art Trail that entertains as it teaches about Wilapa National Wildlife Refuge's native fauna or the so-new-it's-unnamed trail along Glines Canyon that reveals the healing restoration of the Elwha River after dam removal.
