If you're visiting Olympic National Park, or any of the small towns that surround it, then this is THE main road to get you there and get you around it's perimeter. It is well-maintained, surprisingly so considering the number of heavy logging trucks that also use it. Some of the western stretches are just that ... long straight stretches of... More

It was kind of curvy, but it was easy to drive. the view of the mountain and ocean was wonderful. there were some retail stores or gas station at the side. It was a nice drive with the view!

Good highway in good condition. Lots of forest and beaches to see. Slow speed limit at 6omph for good reason since there are some areas that you would not want be going to fast.

We spent hours driving along Highway 101 as we travelled through Olympic National Park. Well maintained roads. Traffic was light in most areas. Good signage to direct you. Get gas in towns when you can because gas stations are scare outside of towns.

This could have been a lovely drive if it weren't for the speeding, tail-gating drivers on the narrow, winding part of the road. It seems they didn't know what a yield sign meant.

Sorry Washington! Although the road surface is in very good condition, the views just are *not* impressive other than in a few areas. We drove the whole route of 101. We liked the Hood Canal section. That is overall very pleasant and we enjoyed the many water views. There are a few narrow bridges (without one-way controls) so if you're... More

We felt that Hwy 101, in conjunction with the connecting ferry are the most scenic, and efficient way to travel out to Olympic Nat'l Park, WA!

Last year our trip up the 101 was cut short right before Olympic National Park. I decided this year If I was out on business I would complete that last couple hours and I did. This was one of the best parts of the 101. The forest the beach and the lakes were amazing. Olympic National park really is one... More

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.
