Olympic Resource Trails is a 2.8 mile loop trail located near Kingston, WA that features a river. The trail is good for all skill levels offers a number of activity options. Dogs and horses are also able to use this trail.
It is immediately apparent that this land belongs to a forest products company. It has been heavily thinned and the cut trees and saplings have been left on the forest floor. I imagine this is good forest management, but not very attractive. As the way contracts in stages from a logging road to a wide path to a narrow trail, it becomes more scenic and enjoyable. One is constantly reminded, though, that it is a working forest. Some cuts appear to be made within the last week. I probably will not return to this trail for quite a while. It could be a good venue for mountain biking or even running, but not my idea of a pleasant walk in the woods.
We used the trails back in 2013. some parts are a little rough on strollers but a good jogging stroller can get you through it. Very nice trails and we'll maintained.
Olympic Resources is managing the historical logging town of Port Gamble's property and has been very supportive of allowing cyclist, equestrians, and hikers build trails on their property. We have had to endure the occasional clear cut but hopefully that will no longer be an issue as they have agreed to sell off the land to a nature conservancy which will leave this area as a beautiful trail system. The sale also expands Heritage Park in Kingston.
It's a great place to trail run, mountain bike, and walk your dog.
