    Directions to Trailhead

    Dosewallips River Road Trail is a moderately trafficked hike that begins in Olympic National Forest and ends in Olympic National Park. This hike is very pretty and although it’s quite long, the elevation gain is very gradual and only a couple of sections feel steep. The campground at the end of the trail is excellent.

    Route Description for Dosewallips River Road Trail

    Dosewallips River Road Trail is a very pretty hike along the river and through the forest to a well-loved campground in Olympic National Park. This hike might be a bit longer, but the elevation gain is never too intense and you could easily hike just part of this trail and still have a great outing.

    Begin from the end of the road, hiking west roughly along the river. There are plenty of creek crossings on this trail, most fine to navigate. Hug the slope of the valley wall as you walk. There are two steeper sections along this trail but they are short-lived, and you can usually find a handful of salmonberries to reward yourself with.

    Slowly climbing up the valley wall, you’ll dip back down not long before the campground. This is the end of your trail, so either pitch your tent or turn around and retrace your steps.
