"Severed by a washout, Dosewallips Road has been closed to vehicles since 2002. While its fate is still being disputed, thanks to a reroute around the slide you can hike the road (or bike it). Much of the way is a slog, but there are some highlights, including a couple of nice riverside stretches and a beautiful thundering waterfall. It’s unclear if the upper road will be reopened, but thanks to the Washington Trails Association, which constructed a bypass around the huge slide, hikers and cyclists can travel the road upriver."
