Port Ludlow Falls Trail

Here is an opportunity for a walk in Port Ludlow if you are visiting and time is limited. A bit of quiet to reflect on things is on hand with a five minute drive from anywhere in the Port Ludlow area.
The Port Ludlow Falls trail is wonderful, protected, short interpretative trail through varied and quite surroundings.  Many signs point to local micro-environments and their plant species on this adventure punctuated by the Ludlow Falls at the halfway mark.   This walk can be the perfect winter afternoon break.

The Search for Noquiklos' Tracks

The Search for Noquiklos' Tracks
Do you believe in Dragons?

Thanks to the Wild Olympic Salmon, the legend of Noquiklos the Dragon lives on.
It was believed that the East Jefferson County peninsula traced the shape of a dragon whose heart is at Chimacum. As we search for the dragon's tracks, we will actually be taken on an educational field trip as we learn about East Jefferson County's hydrologic cycle!

Olympic Discovery Trail

A paved trail system that connects Port Townsend on Puget Sound to the Pacific beaches at La Push is 70% on abandoned Railroad grade. The trail is growing as sections are completed and is being constructed as a non-motorized corridor, including equestrian use in most areas. When completed, the trail will cover 120 miles and will be one of the longest trail systems in the US.

A year-round opportunity to explore the beautiful scenery edging the northern Olympic Peninsula along the historic route of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroads.

Clallam Bay & Slip Point Beach Park

Clallam Bay Spit and Community Beach County Park is a 33 acre park jointley managed with Washington State Parks.  The Park is located where the nutrient-rich water of the Clallam River empties into the Strait of Juan de Fuca, providing a constant food source for shore and marine birds.  Eagles and osprey can be seen feeding on the beach; viewing marine mammals is an added bonus.  The dynamic hydrology interaction taking place between the Clallam River and the tides provide an opportunity to witness drastic changes to the landscape each time you visit.
