The Duckabush is one of the longest river valley trails on the Olympic Peninsula. The trailhead is located six miles from Hood Canal and makes its way along the Duckabush River. The trail spends much of its length in old-growth forest where you'll have plenty of opportunities to see wildlife. You will find good spots to spend the night at 5 Mile and 10 Mile Camps and you will reach the steep walls of the Duckabush Basin after 20 miles. The trail makes a steep ascent to La Crosse Basin where you'll find a collection of high-country lakes, and O'Neil Pass. O'Neil Pass yields the best views out of anywhere in the Olympics. From beautiful mountains to valleys and rivers, the scenery will take your breath away.
