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 side and mountains the other.

Hiked on Christmas Day, went up the trail and back down on the (closed and snowy) road. Didn't need the snowshoes as the snow was hardpacked, but broke out the microspikes for a short while. Beautiful hike through snow covered tress with a gradual easy...More

Mount Walker is a viewpoint just off the main road that goes around the Olympic Peninsula. It would be a great view, however, the day we went was cloudy and there really wasn't much to see. There are pit toilets at the top.

Happened to run into a local at another attraction who told us about Mt. Walker. It is a short drive up the mountain to 2 vistas. Both are worth the visit. We especially liked the view of Hood Canal with Mt. Rainier in the background....More

Visiting Mt. Walker can be by car or by foot on a trail. The views from the top are just amazing. Be sure to go in both directions at the top as the views are so different. The trails are easy at the top. Be...More

Stopped on our way out of town did not have much time. Wish we could have stayed a bit longer. 4 mile drive was up a winding dirt road that was narrow in spots but felt safe. Views were beautiful. Glad we squeezed this stop...More

We arrived Seattle in the noon to start our family vacation. We went to Mt Walker based on some positive reviews. The road to Mt Walker Lookout was dirty. After we got the lookout points, there was nothing to view because of clouds. You may...More

This is an easy (or hard if you hike) to reach viewpoint on the western side of Hood Canal. It is well worth the effort to drive to the top to enjoy spectacular views.
