Weather permiting, great Olympics views (Bailey Range, Mount Olympus, Strait of Juan De Fuca, Victoria).  Listed as scramble due to possibility of snow on upper parts of trail and strenuousness (~5000' and ~12 miles).  Expect to stop for dinner on the way home due to the ferry back causing a late arrival home.
