14.1 mile trail with views of Grand Valley and Badger Valley.

The Hike to Obstruction Peak is a 14.1 mile trail perfect for hikers who want their efforts to be rewarded with breath-taking views of Olympic National Park. The trail opens into views of Grand Valley and Badger Valley. The trail is best used from March to October.

The trail sometimes gets windy. Make sure to wear hiking boots, and consider bringing trekking poles, as the trail gets narrow and becomes clustered with rocks and stumps. 

Directions from Obstruction Point Access: 

From downtown Port Angeles, you will find Hurricane Ridge Road behind the Pioneer Memorial Museum. Drive south along the highway 5 miles to the park entrance. When you've entered the park, expect the road to climb 3.5 miles to Lookout Rock. From this overlook, Hurricane Ridge Road turns to the west and leads 8 miles along Klahhane Ridge to a junction with Obstruction Point Road. Turn left and travel 7.5 miles southeastward to Obstruction Point. The trail continues to the east from here on out.
