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 Extraordinary Shi Shi Beach

Perhaps the most dramatic beach in Washington State.

Shi Shi Beach is located west of Neah Bay. Shi Shi (pronounced shy-shy) was named "best nature beach" by the Travel Channel. It's a day trip you'll remember. Shi Shi is an unspoiled beach and is reached by driving 66 miles from Port Angeles, through ClallamBay-Sekiu and on through Neah Bay, then followed by a 3.3-mile hike. The trip is well worth the time and one can enjoy the scenic beauty of Hwy 112.

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.
