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.
