Description:

Hike to a former fire lookout site on the Olympic Peninsula. Fires are now patrolled by aircraft here, but the beautiful, rugged surroundings can still be reviewed by hikers from the lookout with a name that draws on a Chinook phrase that translates to "stand guard". http://www.wta.org/go-hiking/hikes/kloshe-nanitch

Additional Notes/Directions:

From Port Angeles follow US 101 west for 37 miles to the Klohowya Campground. Proceed west, turning right on West Snider Road. In about half a mile come to the Forest Service work center and continue straight on the paved road. In another half mile the road ends at the trailhead (unsigned as of 2006).
