A very popular cottage themed restaurant, serving breakfast and lunch. Everything made from scratch with fresh ingredients, they even squeezed the orange juice in house. You won't have a budget breakfast at the Oak Table but the food is amazing. To be honest, I don't think we have ever had lunch at the Oak Table, I do know that when you have their breakfasts you probably won’t eat lunch.

Marymere Falls is probably the most popular waterfall in the park, for good reasons, near the shores of Lake Crescent. The mostly flat, with steep steps near the falls, 1.6-mile round trip hike leads you through lush old growth rain forest, dripping with moss, over a log bridge to the beautiful 90' waterfall. Marymere Falls is accessed from the parking lot adjacent to the Storm King Ranger Station along Lake Crescent, 22 miles west of Port Angeles. The Crescent lake area trails and waterfalls are an excellent alternative to the much longer drive to the Hoh Rain Forest.

Obstruction Point Road is as much of an adventure as the hiking trails are once the road ends. Be sure to read Obstruction Point Rd information before attempting to drive to the trail head! This is one of the most amazing hikes a day tripper can take in the Park. It takes you to the top of the world, out among the great mountains, in wild alpine country, far past an everyday experience. The trail itself is easy to follow, and depending on how far you go, it need not be strenuous, but it takes you to a totally different place - a place of high far mountains and icy glaciers, a place of fragile alpine plants and rocky slopes. The air is dry and thin here, take water and wear sunblock.
Obstruction Point Trail
Obstruction Point Road is as much of an adventure as the hiking trails are once the road ends. Be sure to read Obstruction Point Rd information before attempting to drive to the trail head! This is one of the most amazing hikes a day tripper can take in the Park. It takes you to the top of the world, out among the great mountains, in wild alpine country, far past an everyday experience. The trail itself is easy to follow, and depending on how far you go, it need not be strenuous, but it takes you to a totally different place - a place of high far mountains and icy glaciers, a place of fragile alpine plants and rocky slopes. The air is dry and thin here, take water and wear sunblock.
Obstruction Point Road is, probably, the Washington's scariest road and our absolute favorite. Don't drive this road unless it is dry and pleasant weather. It is not a quick or easy drive but the views are breathtaking, out of this world, you will get a real feel of the ruggedness and wildness of the park. It is a 7.6 mile long, 1.5 lane dirt road, with many steep drop offs where the shoulder should be and so narrow at times you need to keep your eyes open for slightly wider points to pull off or back up to let another car pass. It usually doesn't open until mid summer, thru mid October. The road is on your left just before the Hurricane Ridge visitor center, its easy to miss.

Marlyn Nelson County Park at Port Williams, is a little gem of a park. The park is only 1 acre but has 1000ft of beach tidelands that connect to state owned tidelands to the north. This seldom used, quiet little park has panoramic views of the coast and Protection Island. There are a few picnic tables with fire rings, 2benches overlooking the water and 1 older vault toilet.

Jim and I enjoy this road for the adventure and sheer beauty of the drive, and that it ends at a trail head with several different hiking options. The road had been closed for several years due to sections of the road being washed away and once again leads into the Elwha Valley. Whiskey Bend road, is a one and a half lane dirt and gravel driving challenge. The drive itself is part of the adventure and easily done if you pay attention to the road, keep an eye open for spots to pull over before passing cars, and be friendly to other drivers. This 4 mile stretch of road follows the river bed climbing through verdant rain forest ending at a trail head with several fantastic hiking options.
