Trail Information


NF-2880 is a connecting road off of Hwy 101, via Palo Alto Road, and is the main of two roads in and out of the northeast portion of the Olympic National Forest. From NF-2880, you pass the Dungeness Forks Campground, before it continues on to NF-2870; a 20-mile long trail into the Olympic National Forest containing several hiking trails. This region also gives you access to the Buckhorn Wilderness area. The Olympic National Forest and Buckhorn Wilderness area has 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. Subalpine fir and western white pine are present at higher elevations, and Douglas-fir, western hemlock, and red cedar grow on the lower slopes. The Gray Wolf, Dungeness, and Big Quilcene Rivers flow through the Wilderness, along with several smaller streams.

I did this trail and continued all the way out to the end of FS-2880. I was pleasantly surprised at how good the trail was. The road surface was really wet when I went, so there was some fun mud to be had in a couple of spots. The scenery was very good even in the fog and darkness; I imagine it would be amazing on a clear day. The trail had lots of other people on it when I went - the combination of people looking for Christmas trees and people visiting the hiking & camping spots. All-said, I would recommend this trail for any vehicle (2WD and up) for anyone who wants to have a nice drive in the mountains.

I took my pups on the trail for a short little drive on my way back home.
