Getting Here

Location and Directions

By car is really the only way in or out. Most people visit either the park's beach section, which is accessible only on US-101 between Forks and Aberdeen, or Hurricane Ridge, which is accessed from a road out of Port Angeles.

Access points from the more remote east side are Staircase (turn west off 101 in Hoodsport) or Quilcene (closer to the Hood Canal Bridge).

The best way to see the park is to drive from Aberdeen on northbound US-101 and "do the loop", ending in Olympia, taking three or four days to visit the Olympic National Park and Forest area (Lake Quinault Lodge, Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort, and Lake Crescent Lodge are great places to stay inside the National Park and Forest), the Hoh rainforest, Ozette (an easy three mile hike in, or do the easy nine mile loop, tides permitting), Hurricane Ridge, and Staircase.

Lake Quinault Lodge

Lake Quinault Lodge is located just 3 hours from Seattle and only 3-1/2 hours from Portland. From I-5 North or South, take exit 104 at Olympia (Aberdeen-Ocean Beaches) and head straight west to Aberdeen-Hoquiam. From Hoquiam, go north on U.S. 101 for 40 miles to milepost 125. Turn right on South Shore Road and go 2 miles to Lake Quinault Lodge.

Lake Crescent Lodge

Lake Crescent Lodge is located on the North Olympic Peninsula. It is situated approximately 25 miles southwest of Port Angeles, Washington, on Highway 101. If traveling from Seattle, head northwest on Highway 101, past Port Angeles. This should take you around 2.5 hours of traveling time.

Sol Duc Hot Springs

Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort is centrally located on the North Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. Just 12 miles into the interior of Olympic National Park, it is easy to reach from Highway 101, which circumnavigates the Olympic Peninsula.

From the east: Take Hwy. 101 heading west from Port Angeles for about 28 miles. Just beyond Lake Crescent, watch for the Olympic National Park sign that reads: Sol Duc Valley Hot Springs Resort. Turn left off Hwy. 101 onto Sol Duc Hot Springs Rd. Travel south for approximately 12 miles, until you reach Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort. It is about an hour from Port Angeles.

From the south: Sol Duc is approximately a one-hour drive from Forks, WA. Take Hwy. 101 from Forks, heading northeast for roughly 30 miles. Watch for the Olympic National Park sign reading: Sol Duc Valley Hot Springs Resort. Turn right off Hwy. 101 onto Sol Duc Hot Springs Rd. and travel 12 miles to Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort.
