It is open year round every Saturday. Visit local wineries and breweries for tastings. Many events are held year round—see “2017 Festivals & Events” on pages 22–23. Downtown Port Angeles also has easy access to the Olympic Discovery Trail, popular with walkers, joggers and bicyclists (see page 30). Specialty shops supply gear for kayaking, hiking, camping, biking, fishing, scuba diving and skateboarding. In winter, skiing, snowshoeing and snowboarding sales and rentals are available. Lake Crescent Half an hour west of Port Angeles on Hwy 101 is idyllic Lake Crescent, a 12-mile-long lake known for its deep, clear, turquoise waters. A historic national park lodge built in 1916 perches on the south shore. Along the north shore of Lake Crescent is the Spruce Railroad Trail, former railroad tracks converted into a biking and hiking trail. Camping, rentals and groceries are avail- able nearby. Two waterfalls are also close by. Marymere Falls is a short hike from Lake Crescent Lodge. Madison Falls in the Elwha Valley is wheelchair accessible.
