The Ride Experience

THE RIDES: 10, 25 & 60 MILE (100km)
There are three distances: 10, 25 and the new Metric Century (100km/60 miles). The Metric Century is a round trip from Port Angeles to the Jamestown S’klallam Tribal Center in Blyn and back again. The 25 mile ride is just one way and ends at the Boys & Girls Club in Sequim. A bus will take riders from the lunch at the Boys & Girls Club back to Port Angeles. The 10 mile ride is great for families and new riders, relatively flat, it begins at Robin Hill Park at 11:00, goes to the Club for lunch and then back to Robin Hill Park.

A good portion of this trail along the water is paved before winding through the an old mill site. A family of ducks will great you just as you pass the Red Lion Hotel. After a few miles you will turn south into the trees that border Four Seasons Ranch and cross over a bridge at Morse Creek. After a climb up the hill at Morse Creek, take time to stop at the Deer Park Gateway. It is a wonderful spot for a spectacular view of the Olympic Mountains overlooking Morse Creek and there is no better place to view fall color.

From the Top of Morse Creek to Robin Hill Farm Park
The trail has one major hill at Bagley Creek and the rest is pretty mild and level. Robin Hill Farm Park is almost half way from Port Angeles. This wonderful park can be an adventure for the day or just a stop along the trail. It has picnic areas and interpretive signage. (Parking available). Sag and Food support at Robin Hill.

Robin Hill Farm Park to Railroad Bridge Park
The trail is an off-road composite that winds through the farm lands of the Dungeness Valley. Horses, trees and beautiful countryside views on both sides of the trail lead you to the old Railroad Bridge across the Dungeness River. Railroad Bridge Park is a railroad trestle saved by volunteer effort for access to the Dungeness River. It is also home to Washington’s first Audobon Center, if time permits, this park is an excellent stop for those interested in birding information.

Railroad Bridge Park to Carrie Blake Park
The trail out of RR Bridge Park takes you to the trail into Sequim. The trail is off the road on a wide sidewalk area that leads you into Sequim. A turn down Fifth Avenue sends you to Fir Avenue where you turn left for few blocks to Carrie Blake Park. The trail meanders through three adjoining Sequim parks off Blake Avenue. Carrie Blake Park, the Yamasaki Sister City Park and the Waste Water Reuse Park. The band shell is part of the James Center for the Performing Arts.

Carrie Blake Park to Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal Center
From Carrie Blake, the trail leads across the Johnson Creek Trestle to Whitefeather Way. The newest section of the trail starts when you cross Whitefeather and continue to the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal Center in Blyn. This portion of the trail is still undergoing some upgrades and a portion runs along Dawley Rd. The views along Sequim Bay are fabulous. You will return to Port Angeles using the same trail.

Whichever one you choose, you are sure to enjoy a memorable Washington bike ride at the Olympic Bike Adventure!
