Dungeness River

Dungeness River 1

The Dungeness River runs north out of the Olympic Mountains into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. There are no dams and the water is clear (no glaciers in this section of the Olympics). The Upper Dungeness trail runs along the river for the first couple miles before climbing to higher elevation. It is a very pleasant hike, the river cools the air even on warm days.

  1. Very nice! Hopefully someday, I can make my way out there. So, just curious, is they where Dungeness crabs come from off the coast?

    1. Yes, they were first found off the shore near the Dungeness spit. But they are found all along the west coast … or at least they used to be.
