The Olympic Adventure Route Section 4
Joyce Piedmont Road to Lake Crescent (MP 20 to MP 25). This remote section is the least used, but has great variety.
After dropping from the road in lush forest to a creek crossing, it climbs again and enters re-growing clearcuts, trending uphill as panoramic views to the north unfold, culminating at a picnic table near MP 21. The trail uses forest road for the rest of the route.
At MP 22 it joins the Waterline Road, which follows a pipeline bringing water down the Lyre River from the lake. There are steep drop-offs into the river gorge in the vicinity of MP 23 to MP 24.
