Hi everyone,

We're planning a trip to these two parks for the last week of July. We've already set for accommodations at Mt. Rainier (Ashford), but we could always use some dayhike recommendations for that park.

We're planning on going to Olympic for 3-4 days after Mt. Rainier as well, but we're sort of stuck on figuring out exactly where we'd like to stay. I know for sure we want to see the coast, but we'd also like to see more of the interior of the park. Again, it'd be dayhikes. Anyone have some must-do hikes and the best places to stay to access them?

Thanks!

PACIFIC NORTHWEST HIKING

Single best hiking/backpacking book I've ever seen. I kept copies on hand when I lived in WA and OR and still have one even if some years out of  date.

There's great easy day hiking in the Sunrise area at Mt. Rainier. Lot's of open country with amazing views of the mountain.

One thing about the Olympics is that there are a lot of different things to see: the coast, the western-slope rain forests, the high mountain country. If you can prioritize what you want to see and do in the Olympics, that will help with deciding where to stay.
