The Bailey Range traverse is a high and remote cross-country trek of unique and matchless beauty€”it is truly one of the finest high traverses in Washington. At almost all points, the succession of views far down to the forests of the Hoh Valley is echoed by the profile of snowcapped Mount Olympus. Plan for an extendeed trip (7+days) with modest technical requirements.
