Obstruction Point road, Hurricane Ridge, WA September 2015

Deep in the Olympic National Park just south of Port Angeles, WA, Obstruction Point road, off of Hurricane Ridge road, is a fun drive with great views. The road itself is in good enough shape and accessible enough that even a Prius can navigate it. It’s even more enjoyable if you have a high clearance rig and air down your tires so you can float over the washboard portions. The views from this popular high mountain forest road are stupendous since you gain in elevation from 400 feet to over 6100.
