Mount Ellinor, Olympic National Park

4.7
#12 of 17 in Nature in Olympic National Park
Mount Ellinor is a peak in the Olympic Mountains of Washington, United States. It is located in an area designated as the Mount Skokomish Wilderness. The mountain is a popular day hike in the summer months, being that the summit is reachable via a steep-but-brief 3.3-mile (5.3 km) trail which gains about 3,200 feet (980 m) in elevation from the lower of two trailheads. Mountain goats are frequently observable along this trail, but it is advisable to keep a safe distance from them. The trailhead is accessible from National Forest Road 24 north of Lake Cushman. This lower trailhead lies at an elevation of 2,600 feet (790 m). A Northwest Forest Pass or appropriate parking permit is required at the upper trailhead, which starts at 3,500 feet.
