Despite its proximity to Seattle, Olympic National Park is still untrammeled—especially in its mountainous interior, home to more than 30 glaciers and 300 climbable peaks. Explore a handful of those on Mountain Madness's 77-mile Bailey Range Traverse. Days one and nine put guests deep in lush, moss-draped forests. The rest of the time you're finding high-alpine routes, gawking at the Pacific crashing to the west, and, on days seven and eight, traversing the Blue Glacier en route to the summit of 7,969-foot Mount Olympus. July 24–August 1; from $1,800; mountainmadness.com
