My sister an I had taken the Port Angeles ferry and were heading south along the Olympic Peninsula on our way to Vegas when we saw the sign for the Mount Walker lookout. "Want to check it out?" "Sure!" With that, we took the exit and started heading up without really knowing what we were getting in for. It had... More

A must see when in the area on a clear day. It takes some time to drive up on the windy gravel road but it pays off at the top. On clear days you're treated to beautiful views of Mount Rainier from the south side and the Olympics from the north side. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the views... More

It is easy to miss the turn off from southbound Highway 101 to Mount Walker. It is about five miles south of the town of Quilcene. The road is gravel, very dusty in the summer, blocked by snow in the winter. There is also a trail which gains about 2000 feet in about four miles. At the summit, there are... More

I have traveled the world many times over, been to the Swiss Alps a few times as well. Nothing compares to Washington state's own backyard. The central placement of Mt Walker to The Puget Sound a and view downtown Seattle, Mt. Rainier and other noted snow capped mountains, along with the Olympics and Cascades is the best of the best....

Great trip which offers wonderful views of the Olympic Mountains, Puget Sound, and on a clear day Seattle in the distance. Lots of good chances to see passing raptors fly by as well. The road and hiking trail to the top is just off of Highway 101. Be sure and check out "both" lookout areas at top for different views... More

Afraid of heights, but made it to the top and back down, worth the trip.

If you're in good shape hike up to the View Point or drive the 4-5 mile narrow dirt road all the way to the top - on a clear day you can even see Mt. St. Helens!

Off of Hwy 101. Drive up a gravel road to some beautiful views. Worth the drive. Go to both viewpoints.
