Terrace Loop hike along Dosewallips River in Brinnon

Side note: Dosewallips Road is washed out and is closed further along the road, approx. 5 miles from the park boundary.

Directions to the Ranger Station and Trailhead: From Brinnon, Drive north on Highway 101 to Dosewallips River Road, number 2610. Turn westward (left) on to Dosewallips River Road and travel 15 miles to the ranger station and trailhead. The last portion of the road is narrow and steep. It may be slippery when wet.

The full Dosewallips River Trail starts at the same place. The full hike is strenuous and is 14 miles long, for a much more advanced outing! More info about the full trail:

Dosewallips State Park is a 425-acre, year-round camping park with saltwater shoreline on Hood Canal and freshwater shoreline on either side of the Dosewallips River. See more information about this amazing place on it’s official web page:
