“Stunning views, awesome wildflowers and serene beauty await.”— Doug Scott
At Constance Pass, the whole Olympic Range seems to expand out in every direction, showing off the ridiculously beautiful and isolated regions of the National Park. Take some time here and enjoy the sights and sounds, for the next 5.1 miles drop sharply down toward the Dosewallips River Valley. With amazing panoramas, make sure you snap numerous pictures here. Many are tired from the climb up and forget, but don't let the photos slip your mind!
Once the views have fed your wanderlust, start the descent. Losing over 4,000 feet in such a short distance, your toes may be screaming at you, but the view continues to impress. As you get closer to the river, the views are replaced by gorgeous stands of trees and the sound of running water.
