neat scenic drive on the side of the mountains, great views, the drive takes you down to a couple hiking trails. the road is a bumpy , windy, 1 way dirt road . tons of wild flowers.

The drive to Obstruction Point is not as scary as the drive to Deer Park, but a close second. The views are great but you better have confidence in whoever is driving the car. The hikes at the end are awesome.

Not sure I would call this a hiking trail, It's a road, we drove it, to many cars on it to hike, unless you like dust in your face after cars go by

The drive alone is worth visiting Obstruction Point. You experience some of the most incredible views the Olympics have to offer all from the seat of your car. Lots of Olympic Marmots and wildflowers so don't forget your camera. This is a starting point for us when hiking our 6 Pass Hike every year. Leaving Obstruction Point we then cross Grand, Cameron, Lost, Hayden, Constance, and Marmot Passes. It's an amazing 6 day retreat.
