explore the heart of olympic national park
Summary: Obstruction Point provides you incredible access into the heart of the Olympic Mountain range. It is reached via an 8 mile gravel road from the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center. Two important points: 1) it is a very narrow, windy road that can be an intimidating drive; 2) it is closed during each winter season due to snow.
When the road is open, Obstruction Point allows you to begin your hikes at the core of Olympic National Park. Whether you want to backpack to Deer Park, Grand Ridge, Moose Lake, or just take in the views atop Lillian Ridge, Obstruction Point offers a wide variety of adventures and some of the most diverse viewpoints in the park.
