Length: 130.3 mi • Est. Multi-day
The route of the Olympic Discovery Trail (ODT) traverses lowlands, bordered on the south by the Olympic Mountain Range and on the north by the Strait of Juan de Fuca. It starts in the Victorian seaport of Port Townsend and ends on the shores of the Pacific Ocean. The ODT is mostly a bicycle and walking trail that will eventually be paved. At the moment there are many gravel sections but mostly you will be on roads. In many ways the ODT is a major highway for non-motorized travelers, spanning the entire peninsula. For more information visit: https://olympicdiscoverytrail.org/ Accessibility: The trail surface is mostly gravel and typically at least five feet wide. The grade is mostly gentle (all estimated 6% or less except for a steep section at about 72 miles when going east where the grade is 10%). Wheelchair and stroller users may need assistance where the surface is bumpy or in the steep section.Show more

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.Show more
