Tommy Thompson Trail

Loved this Run!

May, 2021 by klafser

What a terrific, peaceful place to run! Tree sheltered shoreline across Fidalgo Bay with wide, asphalt trails. Loved it!

Padilla Bay Shore Trail

Beautiful easy walk along the water

January, 2021 by tslindee

We loved this walk! It was a flat gravel trail well maintained that wound its way along the bay. Great views and tons of bird watching.

Olympic Discovery Trail

Port Angeles to Sequim

September, 2020 by frankterraferma

Rode 30 miles roundtrip on this trail last week of August in gorgeous weather - cool, sunny & dry. This section fo trail is not in Olympic National Park. Traverses a variety of landscapes - city, ocean front, forest & farmland. There are many sections that are not on the original rail grade so there are some climbs and descents along with a few river crossings on original trestles. On my return, I got caught in the dark. Fortunately, I had a light!!! All in all a good ride!

Olympic Discovery Trail

Brilliant Blue Waters to Lushly Verdant Forest

September, 2020 by frankterraferma

I rode a small section of this trail in late August, from the Sol Duc trailhead east to Ovington with a short diversion to Lake Crescent, about 10 miles roundtrip. The trail was closed for improvements at points further east. I was extremely impressed by the lush trail and beautiful lake. The portion of the trail I rode on was terrific and fairly level. At Ovington, one can easily access Lake Crscent which is pristinely gorgeous. I also visted the unique bridge spanning the Elwha River. Due to time constraints, I only drove the bridge which is a double decker with autos on top and the trail bridge suspended below. The Spruce is set to re-open in the next month and look forward to opportunity to ride more it!

Olympic Discovery Trail

Beautiful and Fun

August, 2020 by t.sq

We rode this beautiful and fun ride and enjoyed water views (the first mile) and beautiful, shaded forests the remainder 6 miles. The trail was well marked in all but one area (about 6 miles in from Port Townsend) where you ride a gravelly rural road for a very short distance. One small section through the forest is almost like single track: fun!

Olympic Discovery Trail

lost in Sequim

July, 2020 by bkwelvis

I liked the trail. I started in Blyn. The first part is a little hilly and a fairly dull ride through the woods. I got lost multiple times in Sequim both coming and going. Better signage please. After that is goes through some nice rural areas and farmland. I turned around about 20 miles in because I was having a few back spasms. I missed what I’ve been told in the best part, with nice water views. I’ll ride the entire route next time. Please add better signs and directions in Sequim.

Great ride today

July, 2020 by vlc9802

We rode this trail from Toulon to Princeville today. It was great! The path was very good. It is mostly shaded. Excellent. We stopped in Wyoming on our way back for lunch. Ate at 111 Coffee Shop. Don’t be fooled, this is NOT just a coffee shop. The lunch was delicious. And it is decorated all with bikes! Perfect for us bikers. And check out the bathroom. Cute!!! Can’t wait to do more of the route from Princeville going south.

Some parts are better than others

July, 2020 by alexkoleber

Rode 30 miles from Blyn to Port Angeles in 3 hours 45 minutes with my dad, we had hybrid road bikes and had a decent time of it. The path is mostly pretty good quality and well-marked except for one part where we got lost in a Sequim residential area.

The first part of the trail is uninteresting with limited views of the sound and it's pretty up and down. Most of it is paved, but not all as the short description of this path indicates.

I didn't really know what we were getting into and only planned for the ride to take a couple of hours but ended up being too steep for my dad to ride in some of the creek crossings so we were delayed. I'm just a hobbyist rider so maybe I was simply unprepared but make sure you know that this path has a fair amount of elevation changes. When we did finally get to Port Angeles on the water, it was awesome! I have a feeling that we ended at the best part of the ride.

Enjoyed, but if I did it again, I might start on the West end and ride it the other direction and end sooner when the views start to wane.

Tommy Thompson Trail

Tire hazard while crossing Fidalgo Bay

April, 2020 by hpywndrr

The seagulls keep busy dropping clams on the hard surfaces of the TTT, mainly out where it crosses the bay. There is a sign now by the RV park warning of the hazard. After maybe 10 crossings it appears the trail gets swept of broken shells now & then (thanks city?), but they are soon back. That said, I can usually maneuver around them.
