A winding uphill hike with occasional peek-a-boo views of the Hood Canal, topped off with a views of the entire canal from the North and South Lookouts, great views of the interior peaks from the North Lookout. Rhodies bloom in June and July along the trail. Parking is at the locked gate at Hwy 101 in the winter, adding just a wee bit more to the hike.
