After completing a 2 month international tour, we were comparing our visits to the Hood Canal area, which is North America's longest fjord with other areas throughout the world. Our most recent Hood Canal stay was at The Historic Balch Retreat on Hood Canal, a historic waterfront home on the widest portion of the canal. With so many natural offerings it is every bit as impressive as the numerous places throughout the world we've traveled.
A previous reviewer must have missed the Mt Walker pull out/viewpoint just north of the Brinnon area on the Hwy 101 Scenic Byway. The views on a clear day are beyond spectacular that offers both the Seattle skyline and Rainier. Trails and numerous waterfalls are truly fab, especially Rocky Brook Falls. Seafood loaded beach has considerable wildlife, and an amazing amount of beautiful shells with a beached barge from the early 1900's at the historic vacation rental mentioned above. Definitely a not to miss area. When we want out of town company to have a great time and feel special, this is where we take them.
