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.
Elwha River Webcams
As dam removal continues on the Elwha River, a series of six webcams have been installed at various points including the deltas at the southern ends of the Lake Aldwell and Lake Mills reservoirs, along the northern shore of each reservoir, as well as cameras directly facing the Elwha and Glines Canyon dams.
While the primary purpose of the webcams is to monitor the process of sediment movement, viewers will be able to get a direct view of each dam as the removal process progresses.
All six webcams can be viewed here:
Did You Know?
Fishers (members of the weasel family, related to minks and otters) were reintroduced to Olympic National Park in 2008-10. They are native to the forests of Washington, including the Olympic Peninsula, but disappeared due to overtrapping in the late 1800s/early 1900s and habitat loss.
