Larry Scott Trail is a 12 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail located near Port Townsend, Washington and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for walking and mountain biking and is best used from January until January.
The Larry Scott Memorial Trail occupies the proposed eastern end of the Olympic Discovery Trail, begins at the Port Townsend waterfront and will extend 8 miles to the Four Corners intersection. Some of the proposed trail runs through private property where access has not yet been granted. The trail begins at Port Townsend's Boat Haven and runs along an old railroad route for most of its length. For the first mile, the trail occupies a narrow strip between a high bluff and Port Townsend Bay and in windy weather is quite exposed. Once the trail passes the Port Townsend Paper Mill it enters woods and is more protected. For the first 4 miles, the trail has been graded and covered with crushed gravel, making it suitable for street bikes. The last 2 miles are much rougher. The trail crosses paved roads in 5 places, making a mixed trail/road outing possible. You will find restrooms and water at both the Boat Haven trailhead and Trailhead County Park.
I know this trail is super easy, flat, not much of a challenge. But it has some great scenery, nice wildlife and just a pleasant walk anytime of year.
Walked 5 miles on this beautiful trail. Only sorry we did not have our bikes!
This is a great trail for kids and pets; also a great place to ride your bike. Dogs must be on a leash but you can also ride your horse, there is a horse trail also. Lots of blackberries to be picked at the end of summer. My 8 year old granddaughter loves this trail and looks forward to it every summer when she arrives from Wisconsin. We have had fun watching people ride their horses all along the beach and in the water at the port. There are a few picnic tables along the way and benches to take a break if you need it. The closest restrooms are at the beginning of the trail in the port. It's an easy trail to walk. You will also see runners and bicyclists. Don't miss this trail!
