Kloshe Nanitch and Snider Ridge Professional Review and Guide

"Chinook Jargon for “stand guard” or “stand watch,” Kloshe Nanitch hosted a striking cupola fire lookout until 1963 and then a beautiful replica of it from 1996 to 2012. Now a viewing platform teeters on this Snider Ridge outcrop high above the glacially carved Sol Duc Valley, allowing you to stand watch over thousands of acres of rugged surroundings.

The trail starts on Washington State Department of Natural Resources land (hence the need for a Discover Pass) and follows an abandoned section of US 101. Walk the old road, its asphalt losing ground to moss and shrubbery, along a bend in the Sol Duc River."
