During our 14 day driving vacation from Texas to Seattle and back we chose to visit Olympic National Park during one day. Well, wished we had discovered that the loop drive is only the beginning. To really see the best the park has to offer one must drive in and out of the park at several junction points. For instance... More

Olympic National park is Awesome!! In one day you can see Redwood forests, glaciers,mountains, beach's and a rain forest. we spent the most enjoyable day driving, walking around the park. The only downside was we hadn't allowed for the huge size and had no where near enough time .

Much like my 101 review, this is a beautiful drive for daytime only. Lots of curves, beautiful forest views and beach views. Opportunities to pull over and explore. Take this to go to the gorgeous Cape Flattery. Cape Flattery is a short and easy hike with breathtaking views. It will not disappoint!

This is a wonderful drive if you love two lane roads, forest scenery and driving around very large pretty lakes.

A really great trip - the Olympic Peninsula is just beautiful, and there is so much to see. This was our second trip and we were happy to spend more time and see everything. Highly recommend.

WE gave ourselves 3 days to putter about the ONP and should have planned for more. The diversity of this great park and the drive was delightful. We will most certainly return

We did the west half of the loop. Most of the road is only one lane, with big turns and up and downs, condition of some of the pavement is poor. Nice road trip in general.
