If you’re after a high summit, tired legs, and an immense sense of satisfaction, head for Mount Olympus. This hike is steep. Very steep. You’ll cover 4,133 feet of elevation gain in a mere 6.3 miles (round trip). But it is also very rewarding. Make sure you start early to beat the sun as the majority of the lower section of the hike is exposed. Once you reach the saddle, have a snack and take a quick break before scrambling up to the summit. You know you’ve made it when you reach the black mailbox and are rewarded with incredible views of the valley and surrounding peaks.
