It offers a wide range of recreation, including hiking, camping, picnicking and boat- ing, in a diverse landscape ranging from verdant rain forests to deep canyons and high mountain ridges. There are more than 250 miles of trails, many of which wander through ancient old-growth forests. Dogs are welcome on all ONF lands. ONF also has a bounty of edible delicacies. Pick wild berries in the late summer months and gather mushrooms in the fall. Seal Rock Campground on the Hood Canal allows harvesting of oysters for personal consumption. Be aware of the daily limit and other state guidelines. For more information, please visit: www.FS.USDA.gov/Olympic Mt. Walker Viewpoint’s panoramic views of Puget Sound can be found 4.1 miles off Highway 101, south of Quilcene. The parking lot is accessible to vehicles spring through fall. This road is steep and not recommended for vehicles pulling trailers. From the park- ing lot, follow a short loop trail to spectacular views. ONF operates 17 campgrounds on a first-come, first-served basis with varying fees. The five designated Wilderness areas do not require wilderness permits, but a Northwest Forest Pass is required for vehicles parked at many ONF trailheads. Three historic cabins are available for overnight lodging – the Hamma Hamma, Interrorem and Louella. These can be reserved through the National Recreation Reservation system at Recreation.gov. dark green = ONF DosewallipsRiver Other Area Parks In addition to our national park and national forest, the Olympic Peninsula offers 13 state parks and nearly 100 county, city and privately operated parks for outdoor recreation.
