Few People Realize Olympic National Park Is Considered To Be Haunted

There are many things that come to mind when you think about America’s gorgeous state parks: scenic trails, marvelous overlooks, photo ops, picnics. Most likely, “paranormal activity” isn’t a phrase that comes to mind, and yet, many U.S. National Parks are considered to be haunted! Today, we’ll detail the hauntings of one of the most beloved of them, Olympic National Park. Here’s more on this allegedly haunted park and the trail you may want to avoid while visiting. It’s not just one of the best hikes in Washington: it’s also the spookiest.

For more information, be sure to visit the official National Park Service website.

There are plenty of other creepy haunted places in Washington; they may not exactly be hiking trails, but they sure are spooky all the same!

Best Hikes in Washington

April 04, 2022

What are some fun things to do outside in Washington? 

Washington state is quite literally THE place to be for those who love the great outdoors and spending time in nature. There are so many things to do outside in Washington, and we’re sure you’ll be overwhelmed at first, but trust us – there’s time to do everything (eventually)! Visit any one of our 124 (yes, 124) state parks, all of which are gems on their own. There are also three National Parks in Washington, and we love all of them equally, so don’t ask us to pick favorites here – just go see ‘em all! Then, there are all the best classics, and Washington is perfect for them, like camping, fishing, and hiking (better still if you can camp, fish, or hike in any of our state parks), mountain biking, and even waterfall chasing. There are lots of amazing waterfalls in Washington, and waterfall chasing might be one of our low-key favorite things to do (ever). Oh, and one more thing: you can embark on whale watching trips! What will you do first? Good luck deciding… 

What are the best hiking trails in Washington?  

As we alluded to above, Washington is seriously one of the best places for outdoor recreation, including hiking. There are tons of wonderful trails weaving all over the state, and we have several favorites (though it’s honestly impossible to pick just one or two). Some of the best hiking trails in Washington – emphasis on some, because there are so many – include the beautiful Lake 22 Trail near Granite Falls. It’s a scenic 6.7-mile loop with an amazing waterfall along the way. Another great hike in Washington is the Trail of the Cedars, an easy, one-mile trek through beautiful, lush forests, with an awe-inspiring lake view, and the Quartzite Mountain Trail in Chewelah is a three-mile adventure through wildflowers, meadows, and awe-invoking forests. Honestly, with more than 3,000 hiking trails in Washington to choose from, it’s impossible to get through all of them – but these are the best ones, in our eyes, to begin with.
