  • Don't be put off by the long steep narrow gravel road, it's fine for just about any car and the views from the top are spectacular. And there are two separate viewpoints - roughly speaking sea one sid...  more »

  • Nice drive up, made it up easily in a VW Golf, saw some legend coming down in a prius, so the road is all fine. The north viewpoint is nice but not striking. The south viewpoint is wonderful, however.
  • 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.
