Biking up the Dose

The Dosewallips Car Camp

Recently my friend Gary and I rode our eBikes up the Dosewallips Road past the washouts and up to the Dosewallips Campground … a distance of about 6.5 miles (each way). We had great weather and were just doing a day trip … although regular readers may note that another friend and I have made several trips up the road backpacking.

I carried my camera and the day was a great success, based on how much fun we had. During the bouncy ride, I lost my lens cap, but that’s why they sell extras, isn’t it?

Sol Duc Falls

Sol Duc Falls

Sol Duc Falls is located a mile or so from the Sol Duc Ranger Station in northwest section of the Olympic National Park. There is a bridge across the river at that point … connecting to the High Divide trail, one of the most popular backpacking routes (reservations required). Note the person in the top right corner of the image.

And below is the river downstream from the bridge.

Madison Falls

Madison Falls is along the Elwha River just at the boundary of the Olympic National Park. The walk is about a city block and is accessible (though not so much in the snow).

We had a few days of below freezing temperatures, but the ice hadn’t built up quite as much as I was expecting. Still nice, though.

Waterfall (un-named creek)

The view of this falls is accessed by a short nature loop in Falls View Campground in Olympic National Forest, just outside of the small town of Quilcene. The un-named creek is a tributary of the Quilcene River.
