I was hoping that someone on here has hiked the 3 o' clock ridge/Maynard Peak area in the Olympics and knew of the P-38E crash site. I have the complete background history on the crash, just would like to know more about the location.

Years ago I heard from an old timer that the Forest Service had found pieces of the landing gear drug down to the roadway...I've asked a few other people but no one I've talked to has been to the site.  Do you have any links or info on the story behind the crash?

I was up Maynard Peak last year, didn't spot, or know of, any crash site (though obviously there is a lot of tree cover over that one...).  I'd be interested in hearing more about the crash if you have any links.

I have a book that explains the entire crash event and shows modern colored pictures of what remains at the site today.
