18.33 miles of hiking • 2250' elevation gain •
The hike to the old ONP Campground/Ranger Station gets longer and longer. The road up the Dosewallips is now blocked a little more than a mile from the old major washout because of a more recent road washout. This adds about 2 1/2 miles roundtrip to the hike. We went about a mile and half passed the Ranger Station. Fair bit of people were camping at Elkhorn and at the ONP Campground. Wished I had brought my overnight gear as the camping conditions were pretty sweet.
