Olympic & Rainier itinerary -- please suggest changes

Jump to last reply

...and help me fill in details.

Sat: 2PM drive from Seattle airport to Red Lion, Port Angeles
Sun: morning - Sol Duc Falls; afternoon - Hurricane Ridge
Mon: morning - rafting on Hoh; afternoon - beaches
Tue: morning - drive to Paradise Inn at Rainier; afternoon: hike around Paradise
Wed: drive to Sunrise and back (Grove of the patriarchs + hiking trails along the way)
Thu: more hikes around Paradise (e.g., Christine Falls, Narada Falls)
Fri: early morning drive to Mt. St. Helens; reach Seattle airport by 9PM

We are going to be there next month. Is the itinerary above practical? We have 4 kids in our group ranging from 9 to 16, all fairly enthusiastic about hiking.

What place/places would you recommend for our time in coastal Olympic? I would also appreciate hike suggestions for both parks. Is our last day (drive from Paradise to Mt. St. Helens; explore Mt. St. Helens; drive to Seattle airport) too tight? Would it be a better idea to visit Mt. St. Helens on Tuesday when we are driving from Port Angeles to Paradise Inn?

Thanks in advance.
