hiking advice

Hi,

We have 4 adults planning to camp most of our 5 days in Olympic. One hike we would like some advice on is from Obstruction Point to Deer Park. We would stay the night in Deer Park and then hike back.

Good. Have to ask because we have people ending up lost and/or dead every year out here, not realizing that there are procedures to follow in a big wilderness.
