The Whale Trail sign is the first installed on the state's outer coast as well as the first within Olympic National Park, organizers said.
It was dedicated at the lodge, which is on U.S. Highway 101 some 35 miles south of Forks, on Thursday.
The ceremony featured speeches by Jefferson County Commissioner Phil Johnson, representatives of the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, Olympic National Park and The Whale Trail, and Hoh tribal storyteller Viola Riebe, director of cultural resources.
