What is Open in Forks and Olympic National Park?

July 28, 2020 | Uncategorized


There is understandably confusion about what area attractions are open in the Forks area, particularly Olympic National Park.  The basic answer for the National Park is that all beaches, hiking trails, etc in the area are open EXCEPT for those that are accessed through tribal lands.  For us that means that first and second beach near LaPush are NOT open.  However, Rialto, Third Beach, Ruby Beach and Kalaloch beaches 1-6 ARE open.  The trail to Ozette is open.  The trail to Cape Flattery and the Makah Cultural Center are not open.  The Hoh Rainforest is open.  The Hoh Tribal village is not open.  Sol Duc is open.  Lake Crescent is open and Hurricane Ridge is open.  Farther south, the Rainforest at Lake Quinault is open. Businesses in Forks are open, including us here at the Miller Tree Inn.  Restaurants have take out service as well as a limited amount of delivery service.  All of our rooms, with the exception of our smallest, have a dining area within the room, to make it easier for you to enjoy a takeout meal in the comfort of your own room. Through July 31, we are serving a hot, sit down breakfast to our guests in our dining room.  Because of limited staff available, we are having to temporarily suspend that service beginning August 1.  We are furnishing our guests with some breakfast items “to go,” which may be eaten in their rooms or taken with them to eat at a later time.  Options available will include oatmeal, house made breakfast pastries, hard boiled eggs, fruit, cheese, and breakfast bars.  Our intention is to reinstate breakfast service as soon as we are able and will make sure our website reflects this.  Until then, we hope that you will continue to stay with us while exploring Forks and the West Side of Olympic National Park.
