Mount Tom

Featured photo of Mount Tom

Mount Tom is located in Olympic National Park 2 miles west of the summit of Mount Olympus in a remote and less explored area. The immense White Glacier is a prominent feature as it flows northeast from the summit. The White Glacier, like the other glaciers on Olympus, are due to the large amount of precipitation (200 inches per year) that falls here, mostly as snow, from storms coming off the Pacific Ocean only 30 miles to the west. Mount Tom rises above temperate rainforests of evergreen conifers, such as the Sitka spruce, western hemlock, western red cedar, and Douglas-fir. Mount Tom is named for Thomas Martin who was part of the first ascent climbing party and later became Washington State Treasurer. A second story is that the mountain is named for Thomas Hammond, a US Land Office surveyor.
