Olympic Discovery Trail

The Olympic Discovery Trail (ODT) is a nationally significant regional trail that combines railroad right-of-way, rural corridors, low traffic side roads, and highway shoulders along the northern edge of the Olympia Peninsula. Beginning on the shore of Puget Sound at Port Townsend and traveling west to the Pacific Coast at the tribal community of La Push, the ODT has been designated as the westernmost segment of the Great American Rail Trail that extends across the United States from coast to coast. Highlights of the Trail are found at Discovery Bay, Sequim Bay, the rural Dungeness River area, Port Angeles waterfront, Elwha River, the north shore of Lake Crescent, and the forested landscape of the western Olympic Peninsula. The ODT grows as sections are completed and will eventually cover a distance of ~130 miles, more than 80 of which are in place. The ODT is suitable for runners, walkers, riders and all non-motorized traffic, including equestrians in many sections. For the adventurous, the Olympic Adventure Route offers a 25-mile off-road alternative that goes from the Strait of Juan de Fuca Scenic Byway to Lake Crescent.
