A stroll through flower fields on a gently graded asphalt path to the site of a former Forest Service lookout enables families to gaze at 360 degrees of glorious views. To the south lie the great chasm of the Elwha River and the peaks of the Central Olympics. Below is Port Angeles and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Beyond the Strait is Vancouver Island. If the day is cloudless, look east for the San Juans and Mount Baker.

Very nice trail, suitable for family hiking with kids and offering georgeous views of Olympic Mtns. without the crowd of Huricane Ridge Visitor Center. Definitely worth it.
