Biking Olympic National Park

Mountain biking opportunities in Olympic National Park are widespread and varied in skill-level. For easier, non-technical rides, the Olympic Discovery Trail, which runs 130 miles, from historic Port Townsend all the way to the Pacific Ocean, through waterfronts, tunnels, across bridges over rivers and through forests.

Another place to experience the beauty of Olympic National Park on bicycle is at Lake Quinault. There are plenty of off-road trails that you can explore, or, if you’re feeling like a little lake loop, the 30-mile Rainforest Loop Drive runs around the lake, starting and ending at Lake Quinault Lodge. Perfect for experiencing the area at a leisurely pace, with opportunities to dismount and explore waterfalls, wildlife, and the massive trees central to Olympic’s character.

If you’re looking for a challenge, the ride to Hurricane Ridge is known to be one of the most scenic climbs in the US, and challenging with an elevation change of over 5,000 ft over 18.6 miles.
