Obstruction Point Road

Obstruction Point Road is said to be Washington's scariest road but offers stunning views. Road is totally unpaved but navigable by all passenger vehicles. It’s narrow with steep drop-offs in places. Starting at Hurricane Ridge Ski Area it is 12.23km (7.6 miles) long. The
route requires experience. It is not suitable for RVs, trailers or motorhomes. This is a high mountain road topping out at 1.822m (5,977ft) weaving along tight corners and steep drops. Usually open from mid-July to October but always subject to weather conditions. Road sees heavy traffic on weekends, on sunny summer weekends and the parking area at the end fills up fast. After you've driven a couple of miles through trees, the road opens up, and you're driving along a ridge, with sweeping views of the Olympic Mountains out your windows. The view at the end of the drive is truly rewarding and also it is worth stopping at some of the nice viewpoints on the way. It has fabulous views into the high mountainous interior of Olympic National Park.
