The following list is designed for a non-guided backpacking trip in Olympic National Park. (For information about visiting the park, see our guide.) The list includes some environment-specific options for the park’s three diverse areas—seacoast, rainforest and alpine backcountry. If you’re going with a commercial group, check with the guide company to see what items they provide.

Included in this list are the Ten Essential Systems you should have on every backcountry trip: navigation; sun protection; insulation; illumination; first-aid supplies; fire starter; repair kit and tools; nutrition; hydration; emergency shelter. To learn more, see our Ten Essentials article.
