I was hoping to get some insight on how to spend our time in the park. We plan on getting into the park area early on 7/8 (a Wednesday) and leaving on 7/11 in the morning to drive down the coast into Oregon. So three days, two nights. We will be coming from Seattle on Wednesday, July 8. Do we need to leave early to catch the ferry? Is the Ferry the best way to go? We enjoy hiking an don't mind longer hikes. I was thinking of spending one night in the Port Angeles area and two on the other side of the park maybe in the Forks area? We definitely want to the Hoh Rain forest and it looks like we'd be able to do a nice long hike there.
Any help on where to stay and what to do would really help. Any must-sees or must do hikes?
