  • This was a really fun viewpoint to see. We drove up the gravel road (it's about 5-6 miles) and then went to both viewpoints. It's a great view and a lot of fun to see everything around. On a clear day...  more »
  • Hiked on Christmas Day, went up the trail and back down on the (closed and snowy) road. Didn't need the snowshoes as the snow was hardpacked, but broke out the microspikes for a short while. Beautiful...  more »
  • Mount Walker is a viewpoint just off the main road that goes around the Olympic Peninsula. It would be a great view, however, the day we went was cloudy and there really wasn't much to see. There are ...  more »

  • Love Mt. Walker! It's quiet and not a lot of people at the view point. Great views! It's a cool little get away for a few hours. Beautiful!
  • When you get to the top you realize you should have just drove up. Not worth the steep hike up or the slippery hike down. Plus it's not 2 miles one way. It's 2.8.
  • Great vistas of the Olympics and Puget sound, good for all ages.
  • Beautiful trails with a great view at the top.
  • Nice place for a day's hike and picnic

Where to stay in Olympic National Park

Many visitors to Olympic National Park choose to pitch a tent at one of 16 campgrounds, many of which stay open throughout the year. The park also offers a mix of lodge rooms, motel rooms, and cabins thanks to two lodges and two resorts. On the Pacific Coast, the Kalaloch Lodge stands as the most isolated of these. If you prefer to rest your head outside the park, consider staying in Port Townsend. This artsy waterside community northeast of the park offers plenty of inns and bed and breakfasts, but they fill up quickly in summer, so reserve ahead if possible. Port Angeles sits a bit closer to the park and offers more functional accommodations in the form of motels and hotels, though you'll also find waterfront inns and cottages in the area. Communities on the park's western side offer a rustic vibe, but they also take more time to get to if you're coming from Seattle.
