General Information


From Quilcene, WA travel 15 miles south on US Highway 101 to Mt. Jupiter Road. Take Mt. Jupiter Road west for 2.5 miles to a fork in the road and bear left.

Just north of the intersection is a gate. The gate is on private land and is normally locked, especially during times of high fire danger. When the gate is locked you must hike the spur 2.5 miles to the trail and the trailhead. Please do not block the gate with your vehicle and respect private property.

Alert: Mt. Jupiter Road is steep, winding and can be rough in places. Trailers are not possible under any circumstances due to the rough roads and difficulty in turning around.
