This is a must do when going to and from the various places within Olympic National Park. The scenic drive is relaxing and picturesque. There are plenty of places to pull over and enjoy the vistas. Must do!

There is a variety of landmarks and scenery along this loop. You pass rainforest, lakes, and the ocean. If you are touring the park, this is the route for you.

It is a long drive and to see anything interesting you have to take long routes of the main highway to get to them. I prefer to drive more along the coast like in Oregon and California. The highway is in good shape and well...More

This was a great trip for our family. Make sure you go into the park in the different sections and definitely step out to do Cape Flattery. We found the coast/beaches were more interesting than the towns (Neah Bay, Port Angeles, Port Townsend). But it's...More

Its definitely worth the trip but give it a few days so you can do there is all to do there ie, hiking the Hoh trail, or the tidal pools or Ruby beach. If camping be prepared for all types of weather

It really depends on what you like to do. This park is very diverse and doing 2-3 days you really wouldn't experience much, like hiking, vistas etc. But if all you have is 3 days, go for it and see what you see. Maybe... More
