At a Glance

Ever since the Hood Canal Bridge connected the north Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas, local touts have been describing the south canal as “The Forgotten Fjord”. If that’s so, the stream of cottages, motels, restaurants, gas stations, taverns and lounges must be a minor case of Recovered Memory Syndrome. While the frequent townlets wherever the terrain flattens can interrupt your rhythm at the southern end, you’re rarely far from a memorable section of steep, treed cliffs screwing the road against the salt water’s edge or an evocative, scenic tableau across a river delta. But the road’s most indelible section may be when it heads inland at the northern end in a remote, winding trip through the heavily treed mountain slopes of the Olympic National Forest. Whether or not others have truly “forgotten” this DH, one thing’s for certain: you won’t.
