The Core of the Northwest Coast’s Culture
Follow the route of bygone walking paths and wagon trails and take in abundant stunning views of water, wildlife and more. You’ll want to make plenty of pit stops along the way—watch for whales and bald eagles, explore fishing villages and attractions, or venture out on foot or kayak—to soak in the scenery.

There are too many highlights to mention, but the charming towns of Joyce and Clallam Bay, and Salt Creek Recreation Center shouldn’t be missed.

Another fun way to experience the Strait of Juan de Fuca Scenic Byway is to attend the Great Strait Sale, a 61-mile-long garage sale held along the route every September.
