Hi! I realize I'm a tad late in the discussion but I see that there's some helpful tips in here. I'm from the East Coast (Boston) and I've never been to Washington, so forgive me for not knowing much about the area other than what I've found online. I'm not a hardcore biker, but I do spend a lot of time on my roadbike in the summer, and I plan to do weekend bike camping trips this summer in the White Mountains.
Anyway, I'm hoping to do a bike trip with a friend through Olympic National Park. I know the ACA route goes around the national park, but is it possible to bike through the park? I read that there are some trails near the lodges, but I can't find any info about actually biking through the park. Are bikes not allowed inside the majority of the park?
The trip plan is to fly into Seattle, rent a car and drive to Port Angeles, then get on the bikes. If biking isn't allowed within the park, we would follow the ACA route map (I haven't bought it yet), and hopefully park the bikes at various campgrounds and then hike within the park. It's going to probably be a 2 week trip in mid-late May. Any tips, suggestions, warnings, etc. would help me out a great deal. Thanks
