You can find a few hikes to do or just sit and enjoy the wonder of the mountains. You can also see views of Canada and... More

The National Visitor Centers always have. Wealth of information for you. I especially like speaking directly to the Rangers who have first hand experience. Never been steered wrong by their advice.

It had been 15 years since we last visited the park with our then very young children. The hiking trails seemed much longer then. The park requires lots of auto travel to get to the trailheads. Got to see spawning salmon - so cool!

The rangers were very helpful in finding what we wanted and helping us get started. Stopping here is a good idea if you want to be better prepared.

We hadn't planned to hike, but we ended up at the top of Hurricane Ridge for the most amazing sunset ever. The path is about 1.5 miles and paved. It's got some inclines, but well worth the views from the top!

We love to visit National Parks and the Olympic National Visitor Center was very helpful in planning our 2 days there. Staff were informative and cheerful. And plenty of great souvenirs in the gift shop!

The people who work here are very friendly, knowledgable, and open. The only (small) complaint I have is that they usually don't open until 8:30 or 9:00 which isn't the most convenient hour if you need a back country permit or you want to get an early start on your sightseeing!

Compared to other national park visitor centers we found this one a little lacking. There is no gift shop.

We were very glad to get the information what to see since we had traveled from Asheville, NC to see this National Park. Was very interested in the history of the area and how it was developed.
