Like much of the Olympic Peninsula, Olympic National Park has received significant rainfall in recent days. Flooding in many areas has led to numerous road closures. Park staff will conduct damage assessments when conditions allow and will work to reopen roads as soon as it is safe to do so.

The following roads are currently closed because of storm impacts.

Hurricane Ridge Road – closed due to rocks on the road

Elwha Valley – The Olympic Hot Springs Road is closed at the Elwha entrance station due to flooding. 

Hoh Road – closed at milepost 3 (outside the park boundary)

Quinault North Shore Road – Finley Creek Bridge has been damaged and is closed. The road is closed east of Finley Creek.

Quinault South Shore Road – closed outside the park boundary

Quinault Graves Creek Road – closed

Quinault North Fork Road – closed

The Ozette area is inaccessible due to flooding outside the park boundary on the Hoko-Ozette Road.

The Queets Road will be closed by this evening.

The Mora Campground is closed due to flooding. The road to Rialto Beach is currently covered with water and will be closed by this evening.

Dosewallips and Staircase Roads all remain closed due to previous damage and unsafe conditions. The Deer Park Road is closed for the season.

The Sol Duc Road, Kalaloch and Lake Crescent areas remain open, but travel is not recommended at this time because of heavy rain, limited visibility and the risk of flooding and rockfall.
