Olympic National Forest is located on the Olympic Peninsula in the northwest corner of Washington State, known as the Evergreen State. The Olympic Peninsula is an unique geographic province consisting of five major landscapes: temperate rain forest, rugged mountain terrain, large lowland lakes, cascading rivers and saltwater beaches. Here the flora and fauna provide interest beyond the imagination.
