The CW Mount Muller Tr882 loop starts with a steep 2200' 3mi Snider Ridge ascent, then 4mi of ridge riding to Mosley Gap, descending past boulder formations to the TH.
At Jim's Junction (past Grouse Meadow), the Kloshe Nanitch Tr882.1 goes 3.2mi to the Kloshe Nanitch lookout and is rideable but not maintained.
The switchback section of Kloshe Nanitch Tr882.1 which accesses FR3040 is mostly overgrown and not ridable, with a good chance of riders getting lost on what remains of the trail.
As a 16mi (5100' ascent) CCW loop, returning 6mi on FR2070 and U.S. 101, Kloshe Nanitch Tr882.1 includes a 3.3mi corkscrewing downhill.
Some limited camping spaces are available at the summit.
The Bogachiel and Hoh rain forest vallys are the wildest and wettest in the Northwest, with both trails leading to Mount Olympus' western flanks, and long enough to suit a variety of hiking experiences.
The 23.5mi (6100' ascent, with 3000' ascent in the first 18mi) Bogachiel River trail is so long it is not entirely shown on the topo map. From Forks, go south on US101 to Bogachiel State Park, then go left onto FR2932 (Bogachiel River Road) and continue for 4mi to the TH parking area on the right.
Nearby Indian Pass Trail and Rugged Ridge Trail create a shuttle possibility for those seeking a shorter, low elevation (but still challenging) hike.
Expect to get wet and bring suitable gear to handle the heavy rainfall on the Pacific (i.e. wet) side of Mount Olympus.
Further to the south, the 15mi (1000') Queets River Trail offers a valley hike to the Pelton Creek Shelter, on the south side of Mount Olympus.
The National Park includes most of the National Forest, with some wilderness areas at the periphery.
Always carry the 10 Essentials: map, compass, flashlight, knife, matches, nylon cord, extra food and water, and rain gear with warm clothes.
For ONP camping permits, go to the Wilderness Information Center (WIC) in Port Angeles, which is shown on the Area Map. No reservations necessary.
