Cheechmahan Trail

Great American Rail-Trail

Native American History Nature & Environmental Management Politics, Policy & Justice

At the installation of the memorial in 1996, Loni Grinnel-Greninger hugs the statue of cicmehán, her fourth great-grandfather.

Bike, walk or drive between the 18 signs bearing stories about the history of the S’Klallam people, who have lived on these lands for thousands of years. In particular, learn about S’Klallam leader cicmehán (Cheech-ma-han) and how he negotiated with settlers and the U.S. government in the mid-1800s to sustain S’Klallam lifeways. Print out the PDF map of the trail before you go. If you can’t make it to Port Townsend, Washington, you can travel the trail virtually by clicking on the trail markers to read about each stop.
