Celebrating the Olympic Discovery Trail
 
There are many reasons to visit Sequim and the Olympic Peninsula, including the Olympic Discovery Trail (ODT). The trail is one of the gems of the Peninsula and is enjoyed by locals and visitors throughout the year. The multi-modal trail stretches from Port Townsend to the Pacific Ocean with a fully paved portion running right through Sequim. New sections are being built each year and we are thankful for the persistence and dedication of the Peninsula Trails Coalition for all their hard work. Whether you like to run, walk, bike or ride horseback, come out and enjoy the Olympic Discovery Trail and the Olympic Peninsula.

Popular with Runners and Walkers

Local parks are a great starting point to jump onto the ODT. The trail runs through Carrie Blake Park in Sequim, one of the City's most popular gathering places. You can head out west and walk through town or head east along the highway. Sequim Bay State Park is a little over four miles to the east and a popular destination. Both directions offer stunning views of local scenery. One of the highlights of the trail is Railroad Bridge Park and the railroad trestle across the Dungeness River just west of Sequim. At the park you'll find the Dungeness River Audubon Center, a hub of education and activities for the whole family. Many events take place on the trail including the North Olympic Discovery
Marathon , the Frosty Moss Relay , and the new Run the Peninsula races.

 
You'll enjoy the beautiful views as you walk or run through Carrie Blake Park.
