the road opens late july and closes mid september. the park service locks a barrier across road and markes it illegal to drive past.

Pretty easy drive. Just be careful not getting too close to the edge (soft shoulders)! Went up there around 5, made it just in time for sunset. 4 wheel drive not needed unless your trying to beat the sunset.

Road is steep, but easy, very accessible when dry. View can't be beat.

This was a very easy drive. Would not recommend it though if you don't have all wheel drive or a 4 wheel drive vehicle. That being said, there was a mustang at the top.

This was a really beautiful drive but I wouldn't try to drive it unless you have really great tires with good traction as it's really muddy up there. It can be really foggy too and the lane gets really narrow- definitely hard for 2 cars to be on it at the same time. If there's a parking lot up at the top or a trail, I don't know about it because we didn't make it all the way to the top. This is only a drive, no hiking trail that we saw but it's beautiful and seems like not many people use the road.

Great views being in the rain shadow of the other mountains. At night we hiked to the top (about .5 mile from the upper parking lot.) we could see the whole Milky Way horizon to horizon, Victoria all lit up, and deep into the mountains.

Glorious on a clear night! Get there early though if you want to camp! Goes quick!

This is a good sightseeing road. It's close to home so I usually take first time visitors of the Olympics down this route.
