Olympic National Park (ONP) replete with verdant rain forests, pristine lakes and alpine terrain provide for a favorite backpacking destination of outdoor enthusiasts. June to October is considered the best time to visit as the park is at its delectable best during summer.

Miyar will take you on four days of unmitigated serenity in this backpacking adventure rated as easy to moderate. We will be following the High Divide Loop trail exploring over 18 miles and gaining a net elevation of 3,590 ft at our highest point. We will start at the Sol Duc trail head and move counter clockwise past the Sol Duc falls, several beautiful lakes and verdant rain forests. We will also partake some glorious views Mount Olympus from vantage points on our way. We will be hiking in August when nature and visibility can be expected to be at their best.

Glorious scenery notwithstanding, we will use the excursion as an opportunity to pick up and practise essential outdoor and backpacking skills. We would be working on different aspects like packing, camping, equipment, environmental responsibility and safety for a back country trip. We would also look at some basic mountaineering and snow skills.
