Two day packbacking trip, Olympic Natl Park or Mount Rainier Natl Park?

A friend and I want to go on a two day, two night backpacking trip. We were wondering which would be a better option if we're leaving from Seattle on a Sunday evening, and returning Tuesday evening. Eventually I'll be back in the area in a few years, but we'd love some mountains and beautiful views. Any advice?

    I recommend Olympic National Park for sure! The Olympic Peninsula is just stunning too if you want to see a remarkable sunset. Camping Neah Bay is super unique and the furthest you can get. It is far, so 2 days might not be enough.Neah Bay

    I LOVE Mount Rainier. Climbed it a couple of times but now I only go there for a long weekend PERFECT for two days.. Great places to car-camp with real flushing toilets and running water allow for you to do day hikes on the Wonderland Trail. Also allows you to have a campfire in the car-camp area( depending on the fire-risk) Beautiful starry nights and even an area where the Rangers give a nightly lecture and slide show.. Enter from the North near Alta Crystal Resort.

    Mount Rainier will save you some time, because your drive will be shorter. But there will probably be way fewer people in the Olympics, so that would be a better choice if you want to escape the crowds.
