Mountain Biking Excursions near Olympic National Park

“We twisted and dipped on our mountain bikes through fragrant forests of cedar, hemlock and Sitka spruce; pedaled atop ridges with views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Vancouver Island; and looked down on the Elwha River Valley with the snowy peaks of the Olympics rising above it…”

-Rebecca Agiewich, Seattle Times
