Olympic Hot Springs Road Closed
The Elwha Valley's Olympic Hot Springs Road is closed to public entry beyond the Altair Campground during removal of the Glines Canyon Dam. Olympic Hot Springs is not accessible from the Elwha.
Olympic National Park stretches from ice-covered mountain peaks to rocky coast. Between those extremes lie countless places for animals to live. Being a national park and designated wilderness adds protection to help keep these varied habitats relatively undisturbed.
