Trail Information


The Olympic National Forest and Buckhorn Wilderness area have an abundance of forest roads, hiking trailheads, and campsites. It encompasses 258 acres of land and is the largest Wilderness Area of the Olympic National Forest. The terrain can be quite steep, ranging from 1,000 feet near the Gray Wolf River to the summit of Mt. Fricaba, at an elevation of 7,134 feet.

Just based on the portion of the trail that's listed on this site, I have to give it low marks. The 1.6 mi portion of road that's highlighted is just a typical forest service road with some potholes, but lined by houses and a recreational area. So, if you're reading this review and planning to go do only this 1.6 mi stretch of road, then I would recommend using your time to go see something else. But that said, this trail does take you to some incredible trails beyond. I don't know why it stops at 1.6 mi, honestly. It should probably continue all the way to Quilcene over the Bon Jon Pass. That's the REAL trail here. And if you take the time to explore all of the side roads and trails, there's a lot going on up there! That's definitely worth the trip! Just my 2¢: this trail should be deleted from the site and replaced or updated to include the entire Bon Jon Pass route to Quilcene.

This was a part of a very full day of wheeling, exploring the NE corner of the Olympic National Forest on the Olympic Pennisula.
