Dodger Point

Dodger Point Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Located near the center of the Olympic Mountains, the old lookout building at Dodger Point is ideally situated to offer an outstanding view of all parts of this magnificent range. And boy does it ever! Just about every significant mountain, glacier, ridge, and canyon is visible from this grandstand, and simply saying, “Wow!” really doesn’t cover it. Be prepared to be awed.

You should also be prepared, however, to lug a heavy overnight pack on a long uphill trail, which probably explains why only a small number of hikers ever get to appreciate this wonderful view. This is fine for solitude lovers, of course, who enjoy the view even more knowing that they have it all to themselves. Note: The Long Ridge Trail to Dodger Point is one of the few trails in Olympic National Park where finding water can be a problem. By late summer, there may be no accessible trailside water between Idaho Creek and the small ponds in Dodger Basin, a distance of 10.4 tough, uphill miles. Carry plenty."
