Mudslide closes Graves Creek Road at Olympic National Park

Managers at Olympic National Park announced Tuesday morning that Graves Creek Road, in the park’s southwest corner, has been closed by a mudslide.

The road runs northeast along the Quinault River from the intersection of North Shore and South Shore roads near Lake Quinault.

Park officials did not have an estimate of when the road would be open.

Visitors to the Hoh Rainforest should be aware of a lane restriction at milepost 3 on the Upper Hoh Road. The road is reduced to one lane for a short stretch because a tree is causing a bump in the pavement.
