At a Glance

Choices, choices. Heading up or down the Olympic Peninsula, you have to chose between DH43 Hoh-Clearwater Rd and this better Paved and Engineered option. What you gain in P & E, however, you give up in Remoteness. As soon as you begin to feel away from it all on this section of Hwy 101, a house, B&B or hostel appears. Twistiness lets you have the best of both worlds, since this DH’s best curves are in the heavily clearcut section north of Hoh-Clearwater Rd’s northern junction. Problem is, if you go with the Hoh, you’ll miss what really makes Forks - Kalaloch special — the bottom 10.0 mi (16.0 km) when the road crosses the boundary of the Olympic National Park and heads out along the coast. Although this southern section has a lot of straights, communing in the world’s only Douglas Fir rainforest with the Pacific air filling your soul is a motorcycling experience you’ll never forget. Which to choose? Follow Yogi Berra’s advice: when you come to a fork in the road, take it.
