Third Beach to Oil City

Third Beach to Oil City

Embark on an adventure along the rugged Olympic coast as you hike south from Third Beach to Oil City. This trail is for the adventurous only: it involves harrowing ladder climbs, planning, and precise tide timing to pass around dangerous headlands. If possible, try to round all headlands on falling tides to ensure the safety of your backpacking group.

Olympic National Park Through Hike Part 2

Olympic National Park Through Hike Part 2

Everyone’s spirits were high and filled with expectations of the trail ahead…and hopefully meeting our other group coming from the West. I was thinking about almost nothing when I heard someone below me yelling. I turned around to see someone holding up the hoof of a deer.

Olympic National Park Through Hike

Olympic National Park Through Hike

In late July last summer fourteen of us set out to cross the width of the Olympic Mountains. Seven travelled from the East and seven from the West. I was leading the group from the West and an old friend was leading the group from the East. To make it more interesting, we planned to meet in the middle for a day.

Not far beyond Irely Lake the trail began its ascent. Now the heat and humidity became an even bigger factor
