Description

The beginning of Westside Road is just beyond the Nisqually Entrance, in the southwest corner of the park. The first three miles of the road are open to motor vehicles as well as bicycles. There is a small parking area at the end of this three mile section and many runners and mountain bikers choose to leave their cars at this point. There are challenging climbs and many spectacular views along this stretch to Klapatche Point.
