Mount Ellinor

Mount Ellinor is the farthest southeast peak in the olympics. It is also famous for mountain goats, however I saw none in the entire duration of my visit. A steep hike, the 3.2 mile round trip from the upper trailhead includes a staggering 2500 feet of climbing with quite a bit of the trail feeling like a rock scramble. The searing burn through the calves comes with great reward, as the 5900 ft. summit looks upon the entire olympic range and the nearby Mount Washington.

Wow! Great series. I live at the north end of the Olympics just in front of Hurricane Ridge, in Port Angeles. This makes me want to go explore my area more completely!
