Olympic Natural Resources Center Trail

Whether you are looking for a quick hike or a more leisurely exploration of mature second growth forest and fauna, the University of Washington’s campus in Forks features a 2 ½ mile rustic trail for hiking and bird watching. The trail is well maintained with some elevation gain, giving the walker a good workout. Highlights include a scenic view of the City of Forks along one of its stretches. Bring a snack and enjoy the view from one of the two picnic tables. A favorite place to hike for local Forks residents on their lunch hour! 

Directions: Trailhead located at 1455 S. Forks Avenue, Forks. The entrance is located on the south side of Forks off Highway 101 and across from the Forks Municipal Airport. Turn up the road towards the Olympic Natural Resources Center. The trail can be entered at several locations; trail entrances are marked with a trail map placard. Maps available in the administrative office (open Monday through Friday, 8 to 5) or online at http://www.onrc.washington.edu/ConferenceCenter/ONRC%20Trail%20Map.pdf
