Come ready to paint! For PAWA members only. Attendees limited to 20 for this paint-out.

About this Event

The Elwha River is a 45-mile river on the Olympic Peninsula. Most of the river's course is within the Olympic National Park. There is plenty of room where we will be painting. There is a parking lot, picnic benches, and a vault toilet. No park pass is needed where we will be painting. Also accessible by just a short walk from the parking lot is Madison Falls.

Facilitator Names: Jeanne Engesath


Cell Phone: 360-477-0752

PAWA has a mask up mandate when around others. Stay 6 feet apart. At this time we discourage carpooling with others who are not in your immediate household.

Meeting location and time:

9:00 AM: Elwha River at Madison Creek Falls in Port Angeles

For anyone who would like to, we can meet at 8:30 am in Port Angeles at the downtown Safeway at Lincoln and 3rd. (not the Safeway on Hwy 101) We will park in the parking stalls that are furthest from the store and we can all drive out together. Otherwise meet at 9:00 am at the Madison Falls parking lot. There are no stores close to where we will be painting so Safeway is a good place to get lunch and drinks for the day. Also, there is a Subway just up the street at 403 S. Lincoln, and Country Air Natural Foods at 200 W. First St.

Choose to paint the river or the falls and break for lunch at the picnic area around noon.

After lunch continue to paint the area until around 5:00 pm


To get to Elwha River/Madison Falls, head South on Lincoln (up hill). Take a right onto Lauridson Blvd. You will be heading west. Lauridson becomes Hwy 101. Continue for about 6 miles, then make a left onto Olympic Hot Springs Rd. Go another couple of miles and you will come to the parking lot/picnic area.
