Tides & Tide Predictions
Be prepared for all kinds of weather when you visit Olympic.
If you are hiking on the coast, be sure you are familiar with headlands that require low tides to pass as well as the time of low tides.
Hiking some park trails requires river crossings that may be hazardous during heavy rains or snow melt. Always check river levels before your trip.
