Port Gamble and Poulsbo is a 16 mile loop trail located near Kingston, Washington. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking and road biking.
Great trail for a nice Sunday morning walk with family or friends. Plenty of folks with pets so make sure to keep yours on leash. Make sure start or end the walk at one of the restaurants in Port Gamble or just enjoy the town
Very nice to bring the hounds on , lots of new smells and nice people to meet.Makes me wish that I brought my mountain bike ,Babcock trail needs to be marked but it IS a black diamond run for a reason and may well be avoided by beginners.Over all it's well worth it considering it's right of the road and a few mile away from Ft.Gamble and some nice hot coffee.
Took the boat to visit Paulsbo this last weekend and it was great! They have a very easy guest dock to get in and out of, and very friendly people working at the marina. The town is charming with an array of excellent bakeries, restaurants, boutiques, and antique/novelty shops. Perfect place for a family outing.
Visited Port Gamble a while back and it is very beautiful. Tiny but has a somber welcoming vibe. Interesting for a day trip and I believe you can stay in one of the houses on Main Street.
Stottlemeyer/Port Gamble is more of a mountain biking area with various technical trails. I don't recommend this as a road biking trail. Be ready for some good climbs, descents and jumps even.
This is a great route to do a microbrew ride. Hood Canal Brewery in Kingston. Valhal, Sound, and Slippery Pig breweries in Poulsbo. For the best BBQ in Washington be sure to stop in at Mike's Four Star BBQ in Port Gamble. You'll have 33 miles to ride it all off.
