Mount Storm King, Olympic National Park

4.9
#8 of 10 in Trails in Olympic National Park
Mount Storm King is located within the Olympic National Park about 20 miles west of Port Angeles, Washington. The mountain is located on the south side of Lake Crescent near Barnes Point, and has an elevation of 4500ft.
The trail to the summit starts near the Storm King Ranger Station, and initially follows the trail to Marymere Falls but branches to the north after a short distance. The first is on maintained trail but the rest of the climb involves scrambling on loose rock with some exposure.
Klallum tribe legend tells an origin story of Mount Storm King being angered by fighting tribes at his feet and broke a boulder from his peak, throwing it at the warriors, killing them and cutting Tsulh-mut in two creating Lake Crescent and Lake Sutherland.

  • Steep, challenging, and great views of Lake Crescent and Pyramid Peak. Stopped at ropes--did not reach summit. Lost balance when looked through camera lense on ridgecrest. Had to run down.
  • Challenging hike. The views are good not great unless you are willing to go past the maintained part of the trail.
