The best trail-accessible viewpoint of the lower Elwha River Valley is found on the little-traveled Griff Creek Trail, where solitude is virtually assured. It’s not as if this trail is hidden or hard to reach; after all, it starts from a good paved road right beside the Elwha Ranger Station. The stiff climb, however, discourages most hikers, who go instead to the better-known paths in Geyser Valley or to Appleton Pass. But don’t make that same mistake because Rock Viewpoint at the end of this challenging little hike is worth every tiring step and repays your sweat equity with the best of interest: marvelous views and a blessedly natural return on investment.
