Olympic National Park. West of Seattle. On the map it looks a great place to ride. There looks to be a road around it ie to the North and West. NB I am a road tourist, NOT a mountain biker.
But a friend who has ridden the west coast of the US said "There's no accomodation" (we're not at present planning to take tents and don't really want to, we're credit card tourists).
There do seem to be towns (hamlets??) eg Discovery Bay, Sequim, Pt Angeles, Sappho, Forks, Kalaloch, Queets, Amanda Park, Quinault, Humptulips, New London, Aberdeen, Melbourne.
And on the coast: Taholah, Pacific Beach, Ocean City, Ocean Shores, Westport, Grayland, Tokeland, Oysterville.
Anyone know the area? What's it like? Is it worth a detour - given that we're not going off-road?? Is there accomodation?? We'll be there in August 2005 - 3 of us.
