Amazing road with beautiful views. Forest gave a look like on the different planet. And the lakes, waterfalls, on this road make everything just wonderful. During the spring also you can see places with snow, green trees and animals. I started my trip from Everett by fairy, then drive on the north part of Olympic National Park, then via Forks,... More

This road is in great condition, and has various picturesque views along the way. From canals, to snow capped mountains, to the massive evergreen along the road, you will love the drive.

Passing the sea, the bridge, the woods, the town, varies views without traffic, but really tired after a long drive. The regulation here is interesting: Must Turn Out when blocking 5 or more vehicles. feels like I have to count the cars behind me when driving...

Highway 101 seems to a bit of everything, beach views, serious mountain driving, and more. I certainly was never bored driving down this northern California coastal highway.

This scenec drive is well worth traveling through in car alone or with family. I went through it with nephews and nieces 5 at once of variety ages from 1yr old to 12 and we all had so much good time. Was going through highway by myself many times and last one was with my husband and we adore it.

Wow! The coastal scenery is gorgeous. Take 3 days at least to go from Astoria down to Brookings. There are numerous State Parks but choose which ones to visit wisely. Ecola and Shores Acre are a must.

This highway goes through bigger cities and places so remote that you have no clue if you'll see another vehicle again. There are a lot of places to get out and hike and some to get out and walk to the beach a few feet away. The gas stations can be sparse so fill up when you can.

Highway 101 is so scenic that I can't help taking pictures throughout the drive. Lakes, autumn leaves, trees, bushes, fallen trees, flying leaves, mountains, clouds, rain drops, beaches, country roads on and on. One drive is not enough. Looking forward to more to come.

We took 101 around most of Olympic National Park/Forest but didn't quite complete the loop. Started in Seattle, through Olympia, to Ocean Shores, Forks, Port Angeles then to Bainbridge Island. There wasn't a bad view, even if you never got out of the car. You SHOULD get out and see the sights but in a pinch, just the drive was... More
