Welcome to the Olympic National Forest

Science Oriented, Restoration Focused, Relationship Driven

From hiking a mountain for 360-degree views, to exploring the only temperate rainforest in the lower 48, there’s something for everyone to enjoy on the Olympic National Forest!


Enduring Connections to the Land

The Olympic National Forest recognizes indigenous communities on the Olympic Peninsula and their original connection to the land now managed by the U.S. Forest Service. We continually work with these communities to learn about the ways they have, and still manage the land and resources. We thank them for working with us.
