Obstruction Point Road has been called Washington's scariest road. It is Olympic National Park's highest elevation road and is narrow with steep drop-offs in places. Since it's a single-lane gravel path at points, the route gets a little hairy when you're trying to maneuver past an oncoming car.
You could stay in a nondescript hotel during your Olympic road trip. But step outside your comfort zone to spend the night at fantastic and unusual lodging options along the way. Stay in a tipi, rock to sleep in a sailboat, or bunk in a castle.
Explore the northern Olympic National Park coast tide pools and sea stacks, down to Point of Arches.
What many Olympic National Park visitors don't know is that they are enjoying a national marine sanctuary, spanning 25 to 40 miles seaward with over 3,000 square miles of waters.
No marked runs, no marked obstacles, and limited grooming.
