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.
Did You Know?
Fishers (members of the weasel family, related to minks and otters) were reintroduced to Olympic National Park in 2008-10. They are native to the forests of Washington, including the Olympic Peninsula, but disappeared due to overtrapping in the late 1800s/early 1900s and habitat loss.
