Road Scholar
Program #21472RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
The splendor of nature beckons you to Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula, a vast and pristine area of rainforests, mountains and rivers. Experience the crash of Pacific surf on the sea stacks at LaPush, stroll a fragrant trail to lovely Marymere Falls and marvel at the greenest place you’ll ever see: the Hoh Rainforest. Learn from a Makah tribal member about the life and traditions of Neah Bay, the westernmost point in the continental U.S. Study the ecology of this pristine environment with naturalists and take home memories of unspoiled forests, deep blue mountain lakes, salt spray on endless beaches and the perfume of sunbaked cedar boughs along the trail.


Highlights

• Ascend an 18-mile highway to Hurricane Ridge for close-up views of snow-covered Mount Olympus.
• Enjoy a delightful lunch at historic Lake Crescent Lodge.
• Delight in “Music in the Barn” at Quilcene, a performance from the chamber music repertoire featuring internationally known artists in a relaxed setting.
