Mount Appleton

Featured photo of Mount Appleton

Mount Appleton is located in the northwest corner of Olympic National Park, north of Mount Olympus, in Clallum County. It's situated northwest of Appleton Pass. Whereas there is a trail to the pass, the peak is infrequently climbed. From the pass, one can hike up the west ridge of South Appleton. Mount Appleton was named for Doctor T.J. Appleton, who was one of the first white doctors in the area around 1897. He would commonly travel to the more rural areas of Clallam County to visit patients who were too sick to travel.
