Getting forecast...

This trail is steep! So steep you'll need to use a rope to get to the top, but it's worth it.

Description

The trailhead is a short trot from the parking lot at the ranger station - you'll see a sign pointing up a steep switchback to your left. Be ready to huff and puff from the start.

Storm King offers classic Olympic Peninsula biome transitions as you hike (who are we kidding - walk) up to the summit. Near the summit, you'll find a handy rope system to help you get there. The scary scramble to the top is rewarded by an awe-inspiring view of Crescent Lake. In spite of/because of its difficulty, this is a popular trail. Expect a little company from time to time.
