Trail Overview

This 19.1-mile loop trail takes you deep into the Olympic National Forest backcountry. This is my favorite trail in the Olympic National Forest. Many waterfalls along the trail and amazing views of the Wynoochee River valley. Most of this trail is a 2-rated trail, between 5.4 and 10 miles the trail skirts along a high cliff with scree fields crossing the trail in multiple locations which can be difficult for passing by inexperienced drivers giving this trail its 4 rating. There is also a lot of overgrowth along this trail. Snow can be present on the trail as late as mid-July.

Easy trucking for small vehicles. Some erosion tracks up to a foot deep. There are a couple of small landslides with medium skree but they are passable with small 4x4 (wife wanted out, so she spotted me =D). You will get light forest road pin striping through the valley.

Trail is insanely easy until you hit the rock slides. My wife refused to continue over the rock slides. Some trail repair is needed. There is some 2’ snow drifts but they are tracked already.
