In general, post in alphabetical order by common road name within each section unless there are more natural geographical groupings (e.g. North Fork XXX, South Fork XXX)

Mount Rainier

Corral Pass (FS 7174) ?

Chinook Pass (SR 410) website

Mowich Lake Road (SR 165) Mowich Lake, Spray Park, Echo/Observation Rock

Snow free to the Paul Peak trailhead gate, snow-covered the rest of the way to Mowich.  Limited parking at the trailhead due to snow and deep wheel ruts. (4-5-2014)

Stevens Canyon Road per MRNP website and Road signs:
Grand Park back door (06/19/2014) - 73 Huckleberry Creek is OPEN Watch for logging trucks. Will be CLOSED JULY 2 from 6 am - 5 pm

I-90

Talapus (9030), Mason Lake (9031)?
As of late November 20, 2015 Road 9030 off I-90 to Ira Spring trailhead (Mason Lake) has a partially downed tree which your vehicle will probably fit under just after the beginning of the unpaved section. 9030 was partially blocked by a downed tree just beyond the junction with road 9031 but someone drove past it. Road 9031 (Talapus Lake TH) has been cleared to trailhead - thanks to the man in black who did the work manually with an Axe! Any further updates appreciated.

Tinkham (55), Garcia (9020) ?

Middle Fork Snoqualmie Road (FS 56) Mailbox TH, Taylor River TH, Dingford Creek TH, Goldmyer Hot Springs

04/01/2017 Road is open to the gate at Dingford Creek trailhead. Paving is complete to the Taylor River bridge as of October, 2017. The Taylor River trailhead road washed just past the junction, but is passable by very high clearance 4WD.  The Middle Fork road from Taylor bridge to Dingford has numerous large and deep potholes, several small and two significant washouts from the 2015 fall storms.  All are passable by vehicles with good clearance.  See the WFLHD paving project site for construction info. Goldmyer Facebook page often has updated conditions for snow levels in winter.

North Fork Snoqualmie Road (FS 57) Bare, Dog, Goat, Phelps, ...
10/01/2014 A $75 permit is required to access Hancock Timber lands along the North Fork road. The road is public and you can drive through Hancock lands to reach FS areas for free, but you can't park and climb Fuller or visit other attractions on their land without the permit. There was active logging on the North Fork in 2014 so the road has been graded and was in better shape than usual most of the summer.
05/01/2016 The USFS has blocked the road at the junction of the road heading up Lennox Creek. This adds about 3 miles of road walking to get to the Bare Mountain trailhead or other destinations up Lennox Creek

Rocky Run (FS 4832) (no date?)
Construction along I-90 has a stretch just past the Rocky Run bridge extra bumpy but passable to sedans.  The spur (136 per Google Maps) to the backdoor TH is extra brushy but save for a nasty water channel right at the beginning and some moderate rutting about halfway in is still more or less drivable.  Extra clearance would be good, don't take a car you don't want to add pinstripes to.

Teanaway

North Fork Teanaway road (9737) (5.3.2014, Opus) Driveable to nearly 4.5 miles past end of pavement, just beyond Johnson Medra trailhead.  Potholes in the first 2 miles, better road after.

Teanaway Middle Fork (NFD 113)

Jack Creek Road (9738) Snow-free to 4,400ft (5/12/2018)

Stafford Creek Road 9703 (5.17.2014, Opus) Snow free to the Miller Creek trailhead at the end.  Rough in places.

Beverly turnpike road (1391) (5.3.2014, Opus) Appeared snow free from main road

Jungle Creek (FS 9701) Teanaway Butte, Way Creek trail, Jungle Creek trail

6/19/11 (still true?) There is a "Road Closed" barrier 1.5 miles from the Twenty Nine Pines turn off. The problem is a partially washed out culvert but the road is still passable to a high clearance vehicle and in good condition from there all the way to Liar's Prairie.

6/12/16 There is a "Road Closed" sign at the beginning of the road. If there was a wash-out at 1.5mi, it has been repaired. Would need a high clearance vehicle with AWD to continue past the bumps and mud puddles at 1.7 miles.

Forest Road 10 2012. Closed. Mitchell Peak north access - from DNR: "While the forestland is managed by DNR, the only access road to the trailhead—10 Road—cuts across private landownership, and the new landowner has gated and closed access to the road just east of the intersection with the S-1000 Road. DNR does not have a recreation easement for recreation access across this road. DNR land managers are working on a solution.In the meantime, the only access to Mitchell Peak trail is from the North Siouxon Creek Trailhead, in the southern part of the Siouxon Block. The distance from this trailhead to the top of Mitchell Peak is about 13 miles."

Olympic Peninsula

Olympic National Park - see current road conditions.


Mount Baldy, Maynard Burn, Tyler Peak - FS 2870/120, ?

Mount Ellinor, FR 24 and 2419

07-01-11From the T-intersection near Lake Cushman to the intersection with FR 2419 that heads up to the Mount Ellinor THs, FR 24 has many, deep potholes that are difficult to avoid.  Some deep potholes on FR 2419.

Mount Jupiter Road

05-20-11  Gate not far uphill from the powerline road was open on 05-20-11 and was able to drive all the way to the TH.  Road is very rough with lots of 2-3 inch diameter sharp basalt. HOWEVER, the road is supposed to be closed, as I found out from people who had walked up to the TH.  When I went by the gate there was no sign barring access, but upon exiting I found that someone had turned the sign around so the warning against access was not visible.  Active logging is being done on the north side of Jupiter Ridge, and if you drive in when the gate is open, you risk being stuck inside behind a locked gate when the loggers leave for the day, or, maybe worse, meeting a logging truck on the road

Yakima County/ Naches Ranger District
S. Fork Tieton Road 1000
4/13/17 - Closed due to flood damage.  Closed at intersection of 1050 road, washout is at Mile Post 11, approximately 1 miles before Conrad Meadows. Date of washout to be fixed is by Nov 1 2018 according to the district ranger.

wildcat 1306 road is closed ~.5 miles below lightning lake as of fall 2013. Repair work eexpected to begin in 2020 according to a forest engineer.



McDaniel Lake/Buck Lake Road No. 1502 closed due to bridge wash-out approximately 1 mile past the junction with road 1500. This cuts off access to road 1509 and 130. The road is supposed to be fixed by Nov 1 2018.

1504 road Rattlesnake closed about 1.5 miles from 1500 road. Unknown estimared repair date. This washout cuts off access to the rattlesnake trailhead.

Olympic National Park News Release 

​Final Road Repairs Underway; Elwha Olympic Hot Springs Road to be Closed to All Entry Beginning Monday, October 10


The Olympic National Park road crew, with help from a local contractor, is putting the finishing touches on two major road repairs this month.

The Elwha Valley's Olympic Hot Springs Road will close to all use on Monday, October 10 to allow contractors from Lakeside Industries to pave the newly-repaired section of road.  This closure includes foot, bicycle and horse access.

During the closure, crews will first smooth and prepare the road for paving. Once preparations are complete, the actual paving will be done as soon as weather conditions allow. Because the paving process is weather dependent, a firm timeline for reopening the road is not available at this time. Crews hope to reopen the road by the end of this month.

In the Quinault Valley, the Graves Creek Road will re-open to ​motor vehicles to ​its terminus at the Graves Creek​​Trailhead ​on Saturday, October 1​5​. ​The Graves Creek Campground​ will be open with vault toilets. Potable water is not provided.

Both roads have been closed since last November following a series of storms and floods.

For more information about visiting Olympic National Park, people should visit the park’s website at http://www.nps.gov.olym

OLYMPIC National Park News Release

Mora to Rialto Beach Road Will Close Tomorrow for Repairs


The road from Mora Ranger Station to Rialto Beach in Olympic National Park will close to all entry at 7:00 a.m. tomorrow, Thursday October 13. The road will remain closed for approximately one week at the Mora Ranger Station as repairs are completed.

Personnel from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) will perform maintenance work on the Rialto Beach jetty and must repair the road in order to insure safe equipment access to the jetty. Working closely with park staff, USACE personnel will complete the road repairs.

The road will be closed to all entry, including pedestrians, bicycles and motor vehicles.

Olympic National Park crews had planned to make the road repairs this fall, but the work schedule was adjusted in order to accommodate access for the USACE. The Mora Road was damaged by storms and flooding last winter.

For more information about visiting Olympic National Park, people should visit http://www.nps.gov/olym.

Mile 20 gate on Cascade River Rd closes on Monday. There is a slide across the trail ½mi from the Pass in one of those chutes. Didn't look difficult to cross with traction but if you slip you're back in the parking lot on the third bounce so we didn't risk it.

Olympic National Park News Release

Hoh Road Re-Opens to Hoh Rain Forest, Mora Road to Re-Open Saturday to Rialto Beach, Olympic Hot Springs Road Remains Closed Due to Flood Risk


Olympic National Park’s Hoh Rain Forest is once again accessible to motor vehicles, after being closed by storm damage in mid-October. The road is reduced to one-lane travel at the damaged location approximately 5.5 miles inside the park boundary.

The inbound lane was partially undercut by the Hoh River. Park crews and contractors have stabilized the river bank and added safety barriers and signs. Motorists should use extra caution and be alert to other drivers in that area.

The Mora Road is scheduled to reopen to vehicle traffic by noon this Saturday, November 18. This road has been closed since mid-October to provide safe access for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to repair the Rialto Beach jetty.

The Olympic Hot Springs Road remains closed to motor vehicles because of safety concerns related to frequent intermittent flooding of the road. A side channel of the Elwha River has become more active since an October storm event, leading to flooding of the road in an area just upstream of the new bridge. Bicycle and foot access are permitted; visitors should use the bypass trail to avoid the flood-prone area.

Park staff have installed temporary stream gauges to assess the severity and frequency of flooding. A timeline for reopening the road has not yet been established, and will be based upon information gathered from the stream gauges.

Olympic National Park News Release

Updated Schedule for Lake Crescent Highway Rehab Project; Construction Now Slated to Begin in Late April


The contracting process for  rehabilitation of  12 miles of the Lake Crescent section of Highway 101 and 4 miles of East Beach Road is still underway and this spring’s construction schedule has been adjusted. Construction is now slated to begin in late April this year. This project is being managed collaboratively by the the Federal Highway Administration and the National Park Service.

The contract notice can be found online at the FedBizOpps website: https://www.fbo.gov/spg/DOT/FHWA/WFL/DTFH7017B00002/listing.html  The Invitation for Bid (IFB),  along with plan sets and other detailed documents, is also posted there.

Forty-five vendors are currently listed as “interested vendors,” with March 7 as the deadline for responses. The cost is estimated to be over $20 million.

Bid opening is anticipated on March 7, with construction to begin approximately April 27, 2017.

“We look forward to being able to share additional details once a contractor has been selected,” said Olympic National Park Superintendent Sarah Creachbaum. “In the meantime, however, we can affirm the basic schedule information.”

The contract includes a number of requirements aimed at minimizing impacts to travelers and area residents. For example, the contractor is required to immediately open the road to emergency vehicles without delay at all times throughout the project. Additional specific information will be released after the contract is awarded.

Further, the construction schedule will vary throughout the season to reduce impacts to the public while still allowing safe and efficient road work.  Work will occur on weekdays only and will not be scheduled on holidays or weekends.

An outline of the yearly schedule for Highway 101 is provided below.

April—Late May

Half‐hour delays during work hours, with short delays afterhours to accommodate alternating single lane traffic.

Limited 4‐hour delays may be scheduled (from 9:00am – 1:00pm only) and must be announced two weeks in advance.

Memorial Day—Labor Day (summer season)

Half‐hour delays during work hours, with short delays afterhours to accommodate alternating single lane traffic.

Early September— Mid November

Half‐hour delays during work hours, with short delays afterhours to accommodate alternating single lane traffic.

Limited 4‐hour delays (from 9:00am – 1:00pm only) and 6‐hour overnight delays (10:00pm – 4:00am only) may be scheduled and must be announced two weeks in advance.

Mid November—February

No construction anticipated

March (2018 and 2019 only)

Half‐hour delays during work hours, with short delays afterhours to accommodate alternating single lane traffic.

Limited 4‐hour delays and 6‐hour overnight delays may be scheduled and will be announced two weeks in advance.

The schedule and additional information are available on the Olympic National Park website at https://www.nps.gov/olym/planyourvisit/lake-crescent-highway-101-rehabilitation-2017-19.htm.

No more than 20 four‐hour delays are permitted each spring and each fall. Four‐hour delays may only be implemented between Labor Day and Memorial Day and only between the hours of 9:00am and 1:00pm.  Emergency vehicles will have access without delay at all times.  The contractor will receive monetary incentives for limiting the number of four‐hour delays.

Overnight delays lasting up to six hours are permitted between Labor Day and March 31. All six‐hour delays may occur only from 10:00pm—4:00am and may only occur on Mondays through Wednesday. Emergency vehicles will have access without delay at all times.

All four‐hour and six‐hour overnight delays must be scheduled and announced two weeks in advance. Notices will be sent to area media outlets, widely distributed via the Washington State Department of Transportation traffic alert webpage (https://www.wsdot.wa.gov/traffic/trafficalerts/ ) and posted on the Olympic National Park website (https://www.nps.gov/olym/planyourvisit/conditions.htm)

Repairs to the East Beach Road will be completed during the 2017 construction season, with work completed by November 18. East Beach Road will close to through traffic for a maximum two‐week period to replace one culvert. This closure will include one weekend and will occur between August 1 and October 31, 2017 and will be scheduled and announced in advance. Monetary incentive is offered to the contractor for reducing the length of the closure.

East Beach Road was built between 1911 and 1925 and provides access to private residences, Log Cabin Resort and several popular day use areas and links Highway 101 and Highway 112 and as a bypass route around the lake. In 2015, approximately 67,600 vehicles used East Beach Road.

The road along Lake Crescent’s south shore was built in the early 1920s, replacing ferry passage across the lake. Today the road is part of U.S. Highway 101 and remains a vital transportation link and popular sightseeing route for visitors to the Lake Crescent area and the Olympic Peninsula. In 2015, over 420,000 vehicles traveled this road.

Anyone been all the way up the North Fork recently? There's a big slump happening about a couple miles past Sunday Creek that looks like it could go ahead and take the whole road at any moment. Wondering if anyone has heard about plans to fix it, what that might mean for closures this summer, etc.
