Olympic National Park fully opens Obstruction Point Road
All eight miles of Obstruction Point Road are fully open to public access today, July 11.
Road crews are nearly finished clearing and grading the road surface between Waterhole and the road’s terminus at the Obstruction Point trailhead.
Recent warm weather has helped speed snow removal and grading of the road. The first three miles of road were re-opened for the summer season on June 13.
The Obstruction Point Road is Olympic National Park’s highest elevation road, leading from Hurricane Ridge (5,242 feet above sea level) approximately eight miles east to Obstruction Point at 6,150 feet. It is typically open mid-July through mid-October, depending on snow and weather conditions.
Current road information is available by calling Olympic National Park’s recorded information line at 565-3131 or online at nps.gov/olym/planyourvisit/current-road-conditions.htm.
