A couple of items affecting the north side of the park:
  1. The Spruce Railroad Trail - part of the Olympic Discovery Trail - which runs along the north shore of Lake Crescent will be closed about 3/4 of mile from the east trailhead, a little before Devil's Punchbowl. The closure is about 1/3 of a mile, but the rest of the trail approaching from the west side will be open. I do not expect a detour. The news release has all the details.

  2. The Olympic Hot Springs Rd will be closed starting Sept 8th for a month for roadwork. There is also mention that Whiskey Bend Rd in the same area, closed for at a season now, will be repaired later in the fall, opening up the trailhead again. See the news release from the park for more information.
