VARIOUS COMMENTS....Lowland forest, lowland river valley. Largest watershed in the park, historic cabins. Region has well maintained trails with moderate elevation trends. Historic homesteads and meadows; opportunities to view deer, elk and bear. Region includes Boulder Lake in the Northwest Elwha region. It is a subalpine lake basin. The river contains exotic trout. Fishing is allowed. A unique feature of this region is the Olympic Hot Springs.
I have my own little world. But it's OK...they know me there.
