While camping nearby we thought we would take a drive. The view both to the North and South was beautiful. We could see Mt. Baker, Seattle, Tacoma, Mt. Rainier. Can be windy so be prepared.

We drove to the top of Mt. Walker on our last day on the Olympic peninsula. When we were there the sky was still a little hazy from the forest fires in British Columbia, but we still had great views of the Olympic mountains and...More

By no means the largest of the Olympic peaks Mt Walked is worth a drive to the top - two hour plus walk depending on your pace. There is such a stunning view of the Hood Canal and beyond and a superb vista of some...More

Drove this windy road to the top of Mt Walker (Park on maps) for a beautiful South and North view of Puget Sound and the surrounding mountain ranges. I thought I was going to have to hike it and was pleasantly surprised I could drive...More

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.

This was a really fun viewpoint to see. We drove up the gravel road (it's about 5-6 miles) and then went to both viewpoints. It's a great view and a lot of fun to see everything around. On a clear day you can see Rainier,...More

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
