Colonel Bob

Colonel Bob Professional Review and Guide

"The summit of Colonel Bob is easily the best trailaccessible viewpoint in the western Olympics. That is not to say, however, that Colonel Bob is easily accessible by trail. It’s a tough climb, but this just makes the rewards at trail’s end that much more satisfying. And what rewards!

Views from this high, rocky perch extend well out over the Pacific Ocean, down to the shimmering blue waters of Lake Quinault, and north to the icy mass of Mount Olympus. When you throw in additional vistas that include hundreds of rugged ridges and canyons in all directions, then you have a view that is well worth all that sweat."
