Obviously didn't read this cover to cover but this book got us through nearly a week of hikes using Port Angeles as a home base.

Recommends it for: hikers, visitors to ONP
I went on some of these hikes during a recent trip to Olympic National Park.

I am the owner of several of this author's book. If you want some good suggestions for hiking in Washington...this is the book to get!
