Beautiful Bogachiel Peak[img:351946:alignleft:medium:Bogachiel Peak above the Seven Lakes Basin]
Bogachiel Peak is located high on a ridge called the High Divide in Olympic National Park. The summit boasts spectacular views across the Hoh Valley of Mount Olympus and the Blue Glacier. Until mid July or sometimes later, an ice axe is usually necessary to travel up and around Bogachiel Peak, along the High Divide, and into the basin.
Getting ThereFollow Sol Duc Hot Springs Road (27 miles west of Port Angeles on Highway 101) to the Sol Duc trailhead.
Bogachiel Peak and the High Divide can be reached either via the Deer Lake Trail or the Sol Duc River Trail. The entire loop hike is 18.2 miles with 3050 feet of elevation gain. Once on the High Divide, look for a short branch trail (near the Hoh Lake trail junction) that leads up to the summit of Bogachiel Peak.
