Stop and smell the wildflowers

A variety of wildflowers decorate the landscape of Olympic National Park in the spring and summer. In the mountains, look for lupine, avalanche and glacier lilies, phlox, delphinium and paintbrush, stonecrop, harebell and Piper’s bellflower. In the forest, keep an eye out for trillium, foxglove, skunk cabbage, Canadian dogwood and queen’s cup. Along the coast, you will find a variety of daisies, paintbrush and other delicate wildflowers. Popular places to view wildflowers within the park include along the trails to Hurricane Hill, PJ Lake and Klahhane Ridge, the Hoh Rain Forest and the area around Lake Crescent. Seeking specific wildflowers is the activity of choice for some visitors — well-equipped with guidebooks and a camera — while viewing flowers is a universal experience for nearly everyone who visits the park. From acres of sub-alpine meadows carpeted in blooms to easy walks in the rainforest, there are flowers enough for everyone. But please, mind your step; the flowers that follow will be grateful for your care.
