Welcome to the North Olympic Peninsula Congratulations! You’ve reached one of the most enchanting and diverse regions on Earth! Whether you’re a first-time visitor, a returning visitor or a new resident of the North Olympic Peninsula, you’ll find our coastlines, our mountains, our towns, valleys and historical sites breathtaking and memory-making. This North Olympic Peninsula Guide is divided into sections designed to give you a flavor of each of our towns or regions: Port Angeles, Sequim and the Dungeness Valley, Port Townsend and Jefferson County, Forks and the West End, the North/West Coast and, just across the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Victoria. You’ll also find interesting information about the historic Elwha River dam removals, the “Twilight” phenomenon and, of course, Olympic National Park. Included in this guide is a wealth of information about the goods, services and activities available on the Peninsula. We combine all the adventures of wilderness recreation with the comforts of a premier resort destination. While you’re here, we encourage you to read our three newspapers — the weekly Sequim Gazette and Forks Forum and the Peninsula Daily News. They contain updated information about community and entertainment events throughout the year. You can also keep in touch 24/7 by logging onto their websites with your smartphone or laptop — peninsuladailynews.com, sequimgazette.com and forksforum.com.

The Hoh Rain Forest receives 12 to 14 feet of precipitation each year, resulting in a lush, green canopy of coniferous and deciduous trees and a blanket of ferns and mosses. The temperate rain forest is about an hour from Forks. Easy hikes that begin near the Hoh Rain Forest Visitor Center wind through the primeval wilderness.

Fort Flagler

Explore Jefferson County Maritime culture

With salt water adorning the Quimper Peninsula on three sides, Jefferson County’s maritime culture thrives throughout the year. The Northwest Maritime Center, 431 Water St. (360-3853628, nwmaritime.org), was created to nurture the maritime legacy of Puget Sound for present and future generations. It’s situated between historic downtown Port Townsend and Point Hudson Marina and holds year-round activities to connect people, boats and the sea, from sailing and rowing to family boatbuilding. Port Hadlock is home to the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding (360-385-4948, nwboatschool.org), locally known as “The Boat School.” The school’s mission is to teach and preserve the skills and crafts associated with fine wooden boatbuilding and other maritime crafts.

TRANQUIL BAY

Discovery Bay is an ideal place to take a rest from the road, stay overnight or just get away from the faster pace of living. It is located off U.S. Highway 101 and state Highway 20. The Port of Port Townsend owns a public recreational boat launch off Gardiner Beach Road that provides access to the bay. While kayakers sometimes paddle along the shoreline, the bay is typically quiet. British explorer Capt. George Vancouver found Discovery Bay in 1792 and named the body of water after his flagship, HMS Discovery. After a sawmill was built in 1853, boats carried wood in and out of the bay. The old mill is no longer standing.

Tri-Area & Port Ludlow

The crossroads of Port Hadlock, Chimacum and Irondale comprise the Tri-Area of Jefferson County, the gateway to Marrowstone Island.

At the northern tip of the island is Fort Flagler State Park. The historical turn-of-the-century Army base features barracks, officers’ quarters and a hospital that were used in World War I and World War II. A favorite to tour is the nine former gun batteries atop the bluff. Chimacum is known for its dairy farms that are spread across the Chimacum Valley. H.J. Carroll Park, off state Highway 19, is a county park that offers a playground, BMX track, disc golf course and other amenities. Port Ludlow is a residential and recreational community built up around the shores of Ludlow Bay. The natural environment and developed facilities offer hikes on wooded trails and paths, digs for clams and oysters along the beach, drives through scenic countryside, bicycling and jogging. The Port Ludlow Golf Course, 751 Highland Drive, features ninehole courses for two different games. For water lovers, there is a marina as well as boat launches for sailing, power boating, fishing, windsurfing and kayaking.

PORT TOWNSEND MEDICAL

Did you know? Port Townsend sits on the tip of the Quimper Peninsula, surrounded by the Strait of Juan de Fuca to the north and Puget Sound to the east. At the turn of the 20th century, Port Townsend was a bustling seaport, and many elegant buildings lined the waterfront. It was known as the “City of Dreams” because of early speculation that it would be the largest harbor on the West Coast. Originally named “Port Townshend” by Capt. George Vancouver in 1792, it was found to be a good, safe harbor. The city was officially settled in 1851. Port Townsend’s past is kept alive as the city is full of Victorian houses and buildings that have been restored. Many of the old homes have been redesigned as bed-and-breakfast establishments. The Port Townsend Historic District, which includes many Victorian-era buildings, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976 and was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1977.

sequim

Did you know? Sequim (pronounced “Skwim”) and the Dungeness Valley are known for their mild and sunny climate. The area sits in the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains and gets only about 17 inches of rain each year. The first European settlers arrived in the Dungeness Valley in the 1850s, settling near New Dungeness. However, the Klallam tribe had inhabited the region long before their arrival. In 1874, when Native American tribes were being pressured to move to reservations, several groups of Klallams raised enough money to purchase land north of Sequim, which was the beginning of what would become the Jamestown S’Klallam community. While the lands along Dungeness River became fertile farmlands, the remainder of the area remained an arid prairie. Irrigation canals brought water to the prairie area in the 1890s, allowing for the expansion of farmlands. This innovation is celebrated each May with the Sequim Irrigation Festival, the oldest continuing festival in Washington.

Sequim walking and bicycle trails For scenic mountain biking beauty, it’s hard to beat the Dungeness Valley. For those with youngsters interested in bicycling, try Robin Hill Farm County Park, which offers short trails through forested areas for beginners and families. The Olympic Discovery Trail also passes through the park.

18

The park is off Dryke Road between Sequim and Port Angeles. Another spot is Burnt Hill Road, accessible from Happy Valley Road. The 4-mile climb is a fantastic trail for the bike enthusiast. The 25-mile trek covers the Olympic Discovery Trail from Port Angeles to the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal Center on Sequim Bay.

THINGS TO SEE

in Sequim

Railroad Bridge Park

1. Railroad Bridge Park At Railroad Bridge Park, the swift waters of the Dungeness River flow beneath a former train trestle while paths explore the riverbank. A wheelchair-accessible ramp leads up to the bridge, which crosses the river and becomes a paved path that passes scenic meadows and a few homes before linking with the Olympic Discovery Trail. The park is home to the Dungeness River Audubon Center (2151 W. Hendrickson Road, 360-681-4076, dungenessrivercenter.org), a center to learn about wildlife, the natural world and birding activities. A free bird walk is offered every Wednesday at 8:30 a.m. Participants meet at the River Center for a two-hour walk led by birding experts. The park is located 2 miles west of central Sequim. Follow Fifth Avenue north and travel west on Hendrickson Road to the park.

John Wayne Marina

3. John Wayne Marina

Dungeness Schoolhouse

2. Dungeness Schoolhouse The 1892-built Dungeness Schoolhouse, 2781 Towne Road, was a public school until 1955. The two-story landmark is owned and operated by the Museum & Arts Center in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley, which also operates the MAC Exhibit Center. FALL WINTER 2014-2015

F

Film legend John Wayne frequently sailed the Sequim Bay waters with his yacht Wild Goose and believed it would be a great location for a marina. The Marina was constructed on 22 acres of land donated by The Duke. The picturesque marina is the perfect setting for a picnic, relaxed walk and birdwatching. The marina is accessible from U.S. Highway 101 east of Sequim. Turn north on Whitefeather Way and follow the signs. >> continued on Page 20

5. Dungeness Spit

Dungeness Spit

The Dungeness Spit has become a prime destination for North Olympic Peninsula visitors. And it’s no wonder with its gorgeous views and vast, sandy beach. At about 5 miles long, the Spit is the largest natural sand hook in the nation. The sandy hook forms Dungeness Bay, home to the famous crab of the same name. The Spit and part of the bay are in the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge, a prime nesting ground for waterfowl and home to land and marine animals. At about the 5 mile mark of the Dungeness Spit is the New Dungeness Lighthouse. Built in 1857, it is the oldest beacon north of the Columbia River. The trek to and from the lighthouse is 11-mile along a mostly flat beach and is well worth the effort. Access to the Spit is restricted to the hours between sunrise and sunset, and be sure you schedule your hike during low tides. The lighthouse is open to visitors daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge is a federal fee area and pets are not permitted.

Olympic Game Farm Get up close with wild animals at Olympic Game Farm, 1423 Ward Road, Sequim. The game farm houses about 30 species of animals, including timber wolves, Bengal and Siberian tigers, African lions and Tibetan yaks. The bears are a big hit with visitors, as they will beg for food from just a short distance away. A self-driving tour — which lasts about 45 minutes — lets you experience the wildlife at close range. Feeding the animals wheat or whole-grain bread is permitted, but watch your fingers. A freshly baked loaf of bread can be purchased at the main gate. The farm was established more than 50 years ago by Lloyd and Catherine Beebe. After Walt and Roy Disney learned of Lloyd’s knack for communicating with and handling the animals, Olympic Game Farm worked exclusively for Walt Disney Studios during the 1950s and ’60s. The farm was originally a holding compound for the animal actors between movie shoots, but in 1972, the Beebes opened Olympic Game Farm to the public. Guests enter at their own risk, and visitors are asked to follow the rules at all times: Stay in your vehicle; keep doors, sunroofs and large windows closed; follow directional markers and stay on the roadway; drive slowly but steadily through the entire area; and avoid feeding bison near the gates. Driving tours are available daily (except Thanksgiving and Christmas Day). For hours and admission rates, phone Olympic Game Farm at 360683-4295 or visit olygamefarm.com.

Year-Round Birding

Birdwatching on the North Olympic Peninsula Because the Peninsula is located in a prime migratory path for many birds with differing migratory patterns, there is always a season for a different type of bird. In the spring and summer, songbirds are in higher numbers, while the summer has shorebirds and gulls migrating through. Mid-fall, songbirds and shorebirds

make their way into the area, and then in the winter, you have waterfowl. What local birders have known for so long is that because of the location and the diversity of habitats, the North Olympic Peninsula is one of the best places in Washington to go birding. Each year, birdwatchers come out for the Olympic Peninsula BirdFest, an annual weekend that celebrates birds. The 2015 event will take place from April 10–12. Check the website at www.olympicbirdfest.org for updated information. The Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society has field trips and monthly meetings with guest speakers throughout the winter. Visitors are welcome to attend both. Visit the website at olympicpeninsulaaudubon. org for schedules and details. Peninsula Audubon Society volunteers conduct free guided bird walks each Wednesday, rain or shine, at 8:30 a.m. at the Dungeness River Audubon Center, located at 2151 W. Hendrickson Road at Railroad Bridge Park in Sequim. The two-hour walks leave from the Audubon Center and cover 1½ miles on the Olympic Discovery Trail.

Furry, four-legged Visitor’s R&R After a long trip to the North Olympic Peninsula, owners and their canine companions will yearn to stretch their legs. The Peninsula has two wellmaintained off-leash dog parks just for you and your furry travel companion. Visitors are welcome to bring their dogs for exercise and off-leash doggie play. Both parks have a fenced area for large dogs and one for small dogs. The parks are well-groomed and clean, and the users are self-policing and friendly. Restrooms, doggie clean-up bags and benches are available for visitors’ use.

port angeles

Port Angeles is the county seat of Clallam County and the largest city on the North Olympic Peninsula. It sits between the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Mountains on a natural deepwater harbor, which was originally named “Puerto de Nuestra Señora de los Angeles” (or “Port of Our Lady of the Angels”) in 1791 by Spanish explorer Don Francisco de Eliza. This was eventually shortened into its current name, Port Angeles Harbor. However, long before Don Francisco came across the region, the area was home to Klallam tribes and two major Klallam villages, I’e’nis and Tse-whit-zen. Port Angeles was established as a townsite by President Abraham Lincoln in 1862 by executive order. The Board of Trade in 1890 called Port Angeles the “Second National City,” with Washington, D.C., being the first. In 1887, the utopian Puget Sound CoOperative Colony settled in Port Angeles, and the population steadily grew. While the colony did not last long, it played a major role in the development of Port Angeles.

Clallam County Courthouse

Historical Port Angeles Built in 1914, the Clallam County Courthouse at Fourth and Lincoln streets is a Georgian-style brick structure with distinctive features such as a stained-glass skylight, marble steps and a clock tower. Nearby, the Museum at the Carnegie, 207 S. Lincoln St., offers a glimpse into Clallam County’s past. Heritage Tours (360-452-2363, ext. 0, portangelesheritagetours.com) offers you a guided walking tour

THINGS TO SEE

in Port Angeles

Freshwater Bay

2. Freshwater Bay Freshwater Bay, where river water spills into the Strait of Juan de Fuca, is a great place for an outing. The bay is a tranquil location to launch kayaks and small boats. Once on the protected bay, it is quite common to come face-to-face with any number of marine mammals. Freshwater Bay is only 10 miles west of Port Angeles. Just go west on state Highway 112, then travel 3 miles north on Freshwater Bay Road.

City Pier

1. City Pier City Pier, at the foot of Lincoln Street, features an observation tower, promenade deck, picnic area and short-term moorage for small boats. A stroll along the adjacent Hollywood Beach or Waterfront Trail might be the ticket to end your day. The pier area also includes the Feiro Marine Life Center, a marine laboratory open to the public.

Ediz Hook

4. Ediz Hook

Ediz Hook is a natural sand spit that juts into the Strait of Juan de Fuca to form Port Angeles’ deepwater harbor. It is an ideal spot from which to view the city and the Olympic Mountains rising in the background.

Kayakers can often be spotted off in the waters. Access to Ediz Hook is via Marine Drive, which passes through the Nippon Paper Industries USA paper mill. It’s only a few minutes’ drive from downtown Port Angeles.

5. Port Angeles Fine Arts Center A popular attraction of the fine arts center is Webster’s Woods, an outdoor art garden in the woods surrounding the gallery. The center, located at 1203 E. Lauridsen Blvd., 360-417-4590, pafac.org. is open Thursdays to Sundays. Webster’s Woods is open daily from dawn to dusk year-round. Admission is free, although donations are accepted.

The marine life within then tanks at the Feiro Marine Life Center seems static until a volunteer points out a scallop filtering plankton and several starry flounders and great sculpins blanketed in sand. This and other lessons are what Arthur Feiro, a Port Angeles biology teacher with a passion for marine life, wanted his legacy to be in establishing the center, which is situated on the city pier next to Hollywood Beach. The Feiro Marine Life Center is an educational and scientific organization promoting marine education and conservation. Educational programs for the community are scheduled on a regular basis. Visitors can get up close to local marine life in the center’s touch and view tanks and bank of aquariums. The exhibits are representative of the marine life inhabiting the Strait of Juan de Fuca, including a young giant Pacific octopus captured in the Strait. Close to 20,000 visitors walk through the nonprofit center’s doors annually. Feiro is open seven days a week year round, from 12 p.m.-4 p.m. during the winter months.

Elwha River Dam Removal In the early 1900s, entrepreneur Thomas Aldwell sought to harness the energy of the Elwha River and spearheaded construction of the hydroelectric Elwha Dam, which was completed in 1913. The growing economy soon led to the decision to build a second dam—Glines Canyon Dam, completed in 1927. The two dams blocked much of the 70-mile Elwha River, which had one of the most productive salmon runs in the Pacific Northwest. Spawning runs were reduced from 400,000 fish before the dams were completed to only 3,000. In 1992, Congress passed the Elwha River Ecosystem and Fisheries Restoration Act, which called for full restoration of the ecosystem and fisheries. An environmental impact statement concluded that removal of both dams was the only way to achieve restoration.

Elwha River Restoration The Elwha River Restoration is a National Park Service project that began in mid-September 2011. The project, the largest damremoval project in history, entailed tearing down the 108-foot Elwha Dam and the 210-foot Glines Canyon Dam and restoration of the Elwha River watershed. The removal of both dams was completed in August 2014. The ongoing restoration work has allowed the Elwha River to flow through its native channel for the first time in more than 100 years and will allow salmon to migrate upstream to spawn in the nutrient-rich habitat. In September 2014, the first reported sighting of chinook in the Upper Elwha River above the Glines Canyon Dam site in 102 years was confirmed. Much of the fine sediment that built up in the dams’ reservoirs, the former Lake Aldwell and Lake Mills, was released by the removal process and has changed the shape of the river and caused changes in the habitat at the mouth of the river and in Freshwater Bay. There is a link to a series of webisodes on the National Park Service Elwha River Restoration page that chronicle the removal of the Elwha and Glines Canyon Dams.

Former Lake Aldwell The videos begin with the history of the dams and continue through the deconstruction of the dams and restoration or the ecosystem. For additional information, visit the National Park Service site at www. nps.gov and search for “Elwha River Restoration.”

The peaceful Olympic Discovery Trail is a perfect place to cycle, hike, jog, walk the dog â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or, in some places, even ride a horse. The trail, sandwiched between the Olympic Mountains to the south and the Strait of Juan de Fuca to the north, will ultimately traverse 130 miles from Port Townsend to the Pacific Coast. It runs through two counties and passes over historic railroad trestles, through agricultural land and along the water. The trail is a wide, paved, nonmotorized route open to hikers, bikers and walkers, and also equestrians where appropriate. Portions of the trail are ADAcompliant. A 26-mile stretch connects Port Angeles, Sequim and Blyn. Most of it is paved. There are several access points with parking, including Railroad Bridge Park in Sequim (Hendrickson Road), Port Angeles City Pier (south end of Lincoln Street), Sequim Bay State Park and Morse creek trailhead (both off U.S. Highway 101). The Adventure Route is a wilderness trail that is an adjunct to the Olympic Discovery Trail. It is suitable for active mountain bikers, hikers and equestrians. (Road bicyclists should not use this route.) The 25-mile route begins just west of the state Highway 112 bridge and continues to the east end of Lake Crescent. Here it ties into Olympic National Parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spruce Railroad Trail, which travels west along Lake Crescent. Park at the trailhead located on the Highway 112 pullout north of the Elwha River, or at the Spruce Railroad trailhead off East Beach Road. For more information visit olympicdiscoverytrail.com.

KAYAKING

4A1140931

Kayaks on cars are a common sight every weekend as people flock the area to take advantage of the world-class paddling opportunities. There are specialty kayak shops all over the Olympic Peninsula where you can buy or rent a kayak, or sign up for a guided trip. One of the more popular spots is Freshwater Bay, just west of Port Angeles. The rugged coastline and abundance of wildlife makes it a world-class paddling adventure. Common sights while paddling the coastline include seals, otters, porpoises, bald eagles and a wide array of intertidal life like sea stars and anemones. Kayakers can often be seen in the waters off Ediz Hook and Hollywood Beach, which both have easy access for putting a kayak in water. Marrowstone Island, which juts into Admiralty Inlet just east of Port

Townsend, offers several beach sites suitable for launching kayaks. Oak Bay County Park at the southeast end of Marrowstone Island features an accessible beach and a campground. The park is east of Port Hadlock off Oak Bay Road. Other good kayaking waters on the North Olympic Peninsula include Lake Crescent, the Port Townsend coastline, Indian Island, Sequim Bay and Discovery Bay. If you are new to the sport, start with some instruction to learn good paddling technique as well as safety.

rafting

The most popular river for rafting is the Elwha River. With fairly mild yet exciting Class II+ whitewater, the Elwha is perfect for both first-timers and experienced paddlers. Other rafting spots include the Hoh River (Class I-II) in the heart of the Hoh Rain Forest near Forks and Class III rafting on the Sol Duc River during winter months. Visitors find the Hoh is milder and a bit easier to maneuver than the Elwha. With spectacular scenery and mild whitewater, a trip on the Hoh is geared more toward the nature lover looking for a less-thrilling float.

Cultural Traditions Native Americans are an integral part of the North Olympic Peninsula’s rich history. The tribes maintain strong cultural identities and provide services for tribal members while also supporting the surrounding communities. jamestown s’klallam

The Jamestown S’Klallam tribe was formed by members of the Klallam communities. “Klallam” means “strong people.” The Jamestown S’Klallam tribe’s campus is located east of Sequim in Blyn, right off Highway 101. The tribe operates several successful businesses found off the highway. The tribe also operates the Cedars at Dungeness Golf Course, located on Woodcock Road, that is known for its crab-shaped sand trap. For more information visit jamestowntribe.org.

lower elwha klallam

Today, the Lower Elwha Klallam tribe resides in the Lower Elwha River Valley and adjacent bluffs, but has lived on the river for more than 2,700 years. The tribe’s home once made up a majority of the North Olympic Peninsula. In fact, Port Angeles was once home to a huge village called Tsewhit-zen, which was unearthed in 2003 at the west end of Port Angeles

Harbor. The artifacts found are being stored at the Burke Museum in Seattle. For years, the tribe fought to remove the Elwha River dams and restoration of the river. Today, it is playing a leading role in the project. For more information, visit elwha.org.

quileute

The Quileute gained recent fame due to the prominent role many Quileute characters have in Twilight. While the fictional Quileute have legends of vampires and werewolves, no such stories exist in reality. But the tribe and many of the places mentioned in the books, including LaPush and First Beach, are quite real. LaPush is about one square mile, but the tribe’s territory once stretched along the shores of the Pacific. Visitors can stay at the Quileute Oceanside Resort and take in the beauty of the coastal beaches, try surfing or watch for whales and other wildlife. Each year, the tribe holds Quileute

The Hoh tribe is a small community in West Jefferson County, located along the Hoh River. The river is focal in the tribe’s identity and stories. Flooding is a nearly constant problem as the reservation is located on 1 square mile of land on a flood plain at the mouth of the Hoh River. However, additional land the tribe acquired will allow it to relocate much of the reservation to higher ground and out of a tsunami and flood zone. For more information on the tribe, visit hohtribe-nsn.org.

North Olympic Peninsula Guide

49


Taste of the Peninsula The Peninsula offers diverse culinary options for a small region. The North Olympic Peninsula is known throughout the Northwest for its scrumptious berries and fresh produce. The Dungeness Valley is one of the most fertile areas to grow berries ranging from strawberries, marionberries and raspberries to blueberries and loganberries. Peninsula blackberries, which grow wild pretty much everywhere, are probably the best in the state. Also, gaining in reputation are the handcrafted cheeses highlighted by excellent locally produced wines and ales. The North Olympic Peninsula is home to a number of family-owned and operated farms, organic farms and farm stores. Farmers markets operate throughout the year on the North Olympic Peninsula. In the early fall, community markets burst at the seams with garden-fresh goodies. The abundance of fresh fish and seafood from the Pacific Ocean and the area’s many rivers are a delicious delight on the Peninsula. Locally caught fish such as salmon and halibut are staples on many restaurant menus. Mussels, oysters,

razor and butter clams, shrimp and highly sought-after geoducks are available seasonally on many menus. One tasty crustacean—the Dungeness crab—is a popular delicacy and is the most commercially important crab in the Pacific Northwest. The annual Dungeness Crab & Seafood Festival is held in Port Angeles each October. The crab receives its name from the community of Dungeness, which is located approximately five miles north of Sequim and 15 miles east of Port Angeles.

EXPLORE DOWNTOWN PORT ANGELES Conrad Dyar Memorial Fountain at First and Laurel streets features cascading water and benches for resting. The three-level Laurel Street stairs begin behind the fountain area and connect First Street to Second Street.

The art ranges from the realist to the abstract, conveyed in various media. “Avenue of the People,” eleven steel sculptures along Laurel Street have become a popular photo opportunity for visitors.

Those who make it to the top are rewarded with a spectacular view overlooking the town and port. Art on the Town is an ever-changing outdoor art project that graces downtown Port Angeles sidewalks.

Explore Olympic National Forest The Olympic Peninsula features more than 2,132,300 acres of federal lands to enjoy. Of this federal land, more than 633,600 acres are managed by Olympic National Forest, which blankets the foothills of the Olympic Mountains and surrounds much of Olympic National Park. Its diverse landscape includes temperate rain forest, mountain ranges, large lowland lakes, cascading rivers and saltwater beaches and tidelands. Olympic National Forest features 19 developed campgrounds, five boating sites, four nature trails and one viewpoint.

RV

Visitors should know which agency manages the site or lands they plan to visit because opportunities and regulations differ among agencies. Cabin rentals, campgrounds, wilderness areas and picnic sites can all be found within the forest. Picnic sites are located at developed recreation sites, including several campgrounds. All campgrounds within the forest are available on a first-come, first-served basis. A recreation pass is required for visiting Olympic National Forest. Recreation passes do not cover fees for cabin rentals, winter snow-parks,

or climbing and wilderness permits. Passes also do not cover fees at developed campgrounds. A National Forest Recreation Day Pass costs $5 per day and is honored at all Forest Service entrances or day-use fee sites in Washington and Oregon. An annual Northwest Forest Pass is available for $30. An Interagency Annual Pass is available for $80. To learn more about passes and permits, phone 800-270-7504 or visit fs.usda.gov/olympic. For details about Olympic National Forest, visit fs.usda.gov/olympic.

EXPLORE Freshwater bay, Salt Creek

Freshwater Bay

Freshwater Bay, where river water spills into the Strait of Juan de Fuca, is a great place for an outing. The bay is an ideal, tranquil location to launch kayaks and small boats. Once on the protected bay, it is quite common to come face-to-face with any number of marine mammals. Freshwater Bay County Park’s 5-acre picnic area is naturally landscaped with Western red cedar and ferns, located on the bluff above the bay. Park users enjoy fishing, boating (small boats 17 feet or smaller), beachcombing, crabbing, birdwatching and picnicking. Note that the upper picnic area, restrooms and covered picnic shelters are open May through September only. The lower picnic site, concrete launch ramp and beach access area are open year-round. To get there: Freshwater Bay is 10 miles west from Port Angeles. Travel west on state Highway 112, then travel 3 miles north on Freshwater Bay Road.

Salt Creek Recreation Area, is a 196-acre county park near Joyce. One of Clallam County’s most popular parks, it offers visitors forests, rocky bluffs, tide pools, a stretch of sandy beach, and campsites, and features panoramic views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Crescent Bay and Vancouver Island. Highlighted as a premier birding site, Salt Creek is on the National Audubon’s Olympic Loop of the Greater Washington State Birding Trail. The area was once the location of Camp Hayden, a World War II harbor defense military base. Two concrete bunkers preserve its military history. The area was purchased after being surplussed at the end of World War II. The adjacent Tongue Point Marine Life Sanctuary includes a rocky outcropping that at low tide reveals starfish, sea urchins, limpets and many other forms of marine life. Mountain bikers and hikers can access the state’s Striped Peak Recreation Area from the Salt Creek area. To get there: Take state Highway 112 west from Port Angeles toward Joyce. After 9 miles, turn right (north) onto Camp Hayden Road (near Milepost 54). Travel approximately 3 miles. The park entrance will be on your right.

olympic national park

Did you know? Olympic National Park is often called “three parks in one.” Where else can you view breathtaking mountain vistas, colorful tide pools and some of the largest remnants of ancient forests remaining in the nation in just one day? The park protects 922,651 acres encompassing three distinctly different ecosystems — rugged glacier-capped mountains, more than 70 miles of wild Pacific coast and magnificent stands of old-growth trees and temperate rain forest. A World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Reserve, Olympic National Park is celebrated for its dramatic variety and untamed beauty. Seventy-six years ago, on June 29, 1938, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the bill establishing Olympic National Park. Today, the park is visited by about 3 million people each year. 64

FALL WINTER 2014-2015

Hole-in-the-Wall


COOL WEATHER EXPLORATION

of Olympic National Park

Nothing showcases the beauty of winter in Olympic National Park quite like snowshoeing on trails in the Hurricane Ridge area. With a relatively flat terrain, ranger-guided snowshoe hikes and dramatic vistas for beginning and casual snowshoers, plus more difficult, technical trails for advanced snowshoe athletes, Hurricane Ridge is a popular destination. Ranger-led 90-minute snowshoe walks, suited to beginners and families, are offered at 2 p.m. Saturdays, Sundays and holiday Mondays. To reach the Ridge, head up Hurricane Ridge Road, which extends 17 miles south from Port Angeles off Race Street and Mount Angeles Road. Weather permitting, the road is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and on Monday holidays. Before heading to the Ridge, check on road and weather conditions by phoning the park’s hotline, 360-565-3131. Walks are about a mile in length. Snowshoes are provided. The walk includes lessons on how to walk in snowshoes, and rangers point out interesting natural features and animal tracks, explaining how plant and animal life have adapted to winter in the high mountain ranges. Animal tracks seen on the walks have included snowshoe hares, squirrels, weasels, bobcats and occasionally coyote or fishers. Snowshoers should sign up at the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center information desk at 1:30 p.m., 30 minutes before the scheduled walk, and be dressed appropriately for cold weather. The snowshoe walk is offered in partnership with Discover Your Northwest. A $5 donation to this nonprofit education organization for each participant helps continue the program and maintain the loaner snowshoes. Advance reservations are required for group snowshoe walks, which begin at 10:30 a.m. Saturdays, Sundays and Monday holidays. Group reservations are available by phoning Olympic National Park at 360-565-3136.

FALL WINTER 2014-2015

The Hoh Rain Forest is a great place to view Roosevelt elk. Elk can often be found searching for food in the forest in the early morning or at dusk after most tourists have cleared out for the day. Remember elk are wild animals and are very protective of their young, so keep your distance. The Hoh Rain Forest is located south of Forks and can be reached by traveling along the scenic Upper Hoh Road just off U.S. Highway 101.

When visiting one of the park’s beautiful beaches, be sure to look in tide pools to discover purple, red or yellow starfish, spiny sea urchins, hard-shelled limpets, anemones and tiny crabs scuttling through seaweed. Be careful not to step on marine life when viewing tide pools and leave the creatures as you found them.

Getting around the Park

Salmon Cascades

Olympic National Park can be easily visited on foot or by car. More than 600 miles of trails weave throughout the park, from short, easy loop trails to rigorous, primitive hikes along high passes or ocean beaches. For most of the arduous trips inside the park, you’ll need a topographic map, which you can buy at visitor centers and ranger stations. For those who prefer to see some of this nearly 1-million-acre park by car, there are 168 miles of roads that provide access to various points, although 99 of the roads are gravel. All park roads are “spur roads” off

U.S. Highway 101. No roads traverse the Olympic wilderness. The rugged wilderness is a fragile environment. To help protect animal and plant life, waterways and each person’s wilderness experience, the National Park Service creates and enforces a variety of regulations. The Olympic National Park Visitor Center on the way to Hurricane Ridge in Port Angeles is fully accessible, as is the Hoh Rain Forest Visitor Center on the West End. Other centers and ranger stations provide varying levels of accessibility and hours of operation.

Olympic Mountains

from the water’s edge

The Olympic Mountains are not very high — Mount Olympus, the tallest, is just under 8,000 feet — but they rise almost from the water’s edge. The mountains intercept moisturerich air masses that move in from the Pacific Ocean. As this air is forced over the mountains, it cools and releases moisture in the form of rain and snow. At lower elevations, rain nurtures the forests, while at higher elevations, snow adds to glacial masses that relentlessly carve the landscape. The mountains wring precipitation out of the air so effectively that areas on the northeast corner experience a rain shadow and get very little rain. For eons, wind and rain washed sediment from the land into the ocean. Powerful forces fractured, folded and overturned rock formations, which helps explain the jumbled appearance of the Olympics. Ice age glacial sheets from the north carved out the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Hood Canal, isolating the Olympics from nearby land masses. Surrounded on three sides by water

and still crowned by alpine glaciers, the Olympics retain the distinctive character that developed from their isolation. Glacial ice is one of the foremost scenic and scientific values of Olympic National Park. There are about 266 glaciers crowning the Olympic peaks. The most prominent glaciers are on Mount Olympus, covering about 10 square miles. Beyond the Olympic complex are the glaciers of Mount Carrie, Bailey Range, Mount Christie and Mount Anderson. In the company of these glaciers are perpetual snowbanks that have the superficial appearance of glacial ice. The movement of glacial ice past and present has produced striking geological features throughout the Olympic Mountains. Travel on the Olympic Mountains’ glacial ice is a specialized skill of mountaineering requiring the basic use of climbing rope, ice ax, crampons and good judgment by a climber accompanied by experienced leaders.

Where Land Meets sea

More than 60 miles of Pacific Ocean coastline form a vital component of Olympic National Park. This coastline looks much as it did when Native Americans built their first villages thousands of years before Europeans arrived. The coast is where the land meets the sea, vibrating with life and energy — arches and sea stacks; the roar of crashing waves; the calls of gulls, bald eagles, cormorants and black oystercatchers; dramatic sunsets; and the vastness of the ocean. At low tide, you can walk toward the surf, stopping at various tide pools along the way. If you squat down and spend some time just looking, you will be amazed at what you see: what first look like rocks are, in fact, small sea animals.

Beautiful Lake Crescent Lake Crescent is a deep, glacially carved lake located entirely within Olympic National Park, approximately 17 miles west of Port Angeles on U.S. Highway 101. A massive landslide isolated Lake Crescent from Lake Sutherland about 7,000 years ago. There are two uniquely adapted fishing populations that call the lake home, the Crescenti and Beardslee trout, that resulted from genetic isolation following the landslide. At an official maximum depth of 624 feet, Lake Crescent is officially the second deepest lake in Washington. Unofficial depth measurements of more than 1,000 feet have been recorded. Lake Crescent is known for its brilliant azure waters and exceptional clarity, caused by a lack of nitrogen in the water, which inhibits the growth of algae. Lake Crescent has several hiking trails, some of which climb the surrounding mountains and others that explore the lowland forests and creeks.

Hurricane Ridge If your idea of a perfect winter vacation is mountain peaks and fun in the snow, then Hurricane Ridge is the place to be. The towering 5,223-foot winter playground receives an average of 40 to 160 inches of snow and creates winter fun for families with skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing. Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center is a great place to start your visit at the Ridge. Located just before Hurricane Ridge Road ends, stop at the center for brochures, maps, souvenirs, food and tips regarding your visit. During the winter months, you can rent snowshoes and alpine and crosscountry skis from the ski shop. You can view the majestic Olympic Mountains from the center’s upper levels and take in interpretive exhibits. Hurricane Ridge has a number of hiking trails that begin near the visitor center that turn into snowshoe and cross-country ski routes during winter. The Hurricane Ridge Ski and Snowboard Area is a small, family oriented ski area offering a quality winter sports experience without the high cost and congestion of most ski areas. The Ridge boasts some groomed areas, but for the accomplished skier or snowboarder, the steeps, bowls and glades are well worth the effort it takes to hike there. The Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club is a nonprofit organization that operates both rope tows and the Poma

Hurricane Ridge lift atop the mountain on selected weekends and Monday holidays. During the winter season — usually mid-December through March — the rope tows and Poma lift operate on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. For up-to-date information and rates about the Hurricane Ridge Ski and Snowboard Area, phone the Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club at 360-4572879 or visit hurricaneridge.com. A small kids’ tubing and sledding area (for children 8 and younger) is located across from the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center. The park does not offer tube rental, nor are there facilities at the top for inflating tubes. The Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club offers a supervised tubing area within its ski area. The club rents tubes with handles and leash. Non-club tubes or sleds are not permitted in this area. Always phone the information line at 360-565-3131 before heading up for tubing, as it may be closed due to unsafe, icy conditions.

There is no tubing, hiking or sledding allowed in the downhill ski areas.

To get there:

To get to the Ridge, follow Race Street south out of Port Angeles. The road becomes Mount Angeles Road. The Olympic National Park Visitor Center will be on the right and can provide information about road and snow conditions, maps and activities. From Mount Angeles Road, watch for the sign and bear right onto Hurricane Ridge Parkway. The road is normally open weekends during late fall and winter, weather permitting. You enter the park at Heart O’ the Hills, about 5 miles south of the visitor center. A $15 seven-day entrance fee or $30 annual pass is required. Drive carefully and heed speed limits. The road can be icy, especially where snowmelt has frozen across the winding road. Carrying chains is required during winter. Phone the park at 360-565-3131 for road and weather conditions.

Make plans to stop in joyce Joyce General Store is what you think of when you think of a smalltown mom-and-pop shop. This quaint little store is located just 16 miles west of Port Angeles in the small town of Joyce. The store, built in 1911 by Joe Joyce, from whom the town gets its name, remains very much the same — false front, beaded ceilings, wooden floor. Much of the store’s interior is made of remnants from the opera house and Markum House, which stood in the township of Port Crescent in the 1800s. Port Crescent was located a few miles north of Joyce on what is now Crescent Beach. Joyce Museum, housed in a former railroad station, is located next door. Built in 1915, it is considered to be the last remaining log depot from the Milwaukee Line. The museum houses memorabilia, photographs and artifacts from area railroads, and historical materials from surrounding towns. Phone 360-928-3568 for hours of operation.

Drop in at the Joyce General Store and step into a building that has had few changes since the early 1900’s. The false front, beaded ceiling, oiled wood floors and many of the fixtures remain the same. Much of the interior of the store is from the Markhum House Hotel which stood in the now vanished town of Port Crescent in the 1800’s. The store carries gas, groceries, tackle, bait, and other items.

So many Beaches

Murdock Beach near Joyce

While traveling along scenic state Highway 112 you will find road signs directing you to numerous beaches. Often deserted during the damp, cool months, these beautiful beaches offer beachcombing opportunities, panoramic views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and a chance to view wildlife ranging from bald eagles and great blue herons to river otters. Murdock Beach, also called “Round Rock Beach” by area residents, is a favorite place to find rocks tumbled nearly completely round by the surf. The beach, located just west of Joyce, is managed by the state Department of Natural Resources so a Discover Pass is required.

Did you know? The Olympic Peninsulaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coastal area includes Clallam Bay and Sekiu, twin seafront towns about 50 miles west of Port Angeles, and Neah Bay, home of the Makah tribe. To reach the rugged North/West Coast, drive west from Port Angeles on state Highway 112, which also is known as the Strait of Juan de Fuca National Scenic Byway. The drive offers fabulous views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and plenty of places to stop for a picnic, snap a photograph or search tide pools. A stop at the world-renowned Makah Cultural and Research Center in Neah Bay is a must. The center features artifacts from Ozette, an ancient whaling village uncovered by tidal erosion. 76

Fall Winter 2014-2015


Museum Showcases tribe’s history The Makah Cultural and Research Center in Neah Bay provides a glimpse into what life was like for the tribe 300 to 500 years ago. In 1970, tidal erosion uncovered an ancient whaling village at Ozette, parts of which had been covered by a mudslide hundreds of years ago. The artifacts now make up part of the exhibits at the museum, located on the left as you enter Neah Bay. Its Ozette collection is the largest archaeological collection of any U.S. tribe. On display are about 1 percent of the 55,000 artifacts recovered from Ozette, all between 300-500 years old. Other items on display include artifacts from an archaeological dig at the Hoko River, west of Sekiu. The dig revealed a fishing camp nearly 3,000 years old and a rock shelter about 1,000 years old. The museum also has large illustrated displays with information on Makah history, a 26-foot-long skeleton of a 31-ton gray whale suspended over handcrafted cedar canoes plus a gift shop. The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, phone 360-645-2711.

Clallam Bay and Sekiu (pronounced SEEK-you) are known as the fishing headquarters for the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Here, you can find charters for fishing — halibut, salmon, lingcod and rockfish are good catches — plus diving, kayaking, whale watching, birdwatching and general sightseeing. Vacation homes, beach cabins, bed-and-breakfasts and resorts offer guests comfortable places to stay, while local restaurants serve up fresh fish and other seafood. The beach area between the two towns is a good place to beachcomb, hunt agates and explore tide pools. For details about Clallam Bay and Sekiu, contact the Clallam Bay/Sekiu Chamber of Commerce (360-963-2339, clallambay.com or sekiu.com).

Neah Bay Continuing on from Clallam Bay to Neah Bay, there are year-round sightings of seabirds and maritime animals. Watch for whales, such as gray, humpback, pilot and orca, that pass along the coast on their semiannual Pacific migrations. Be sure to stop at the Makah Cultural and Research Center, the museum on the left as you enter Neah Bay. The focus of the museum is the Ozette collection, the largest archaeological collection of any U.S. tribe. Artifacts on display come from a 500-year-old Makah village located 8 miles south of the Makah Reservation. See Page 77 for more museum details. A short drive past Neah Bay brings you to Cape Flattery, the northwesternmost point of the continental United States. The Cape Flattery Trail, a short trail featuring boardwalk, stone and gravel steps, and four observation decks, offers breathtaking views of the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, Tatoosh Island and the Cape Flattery Lighthouse. The lighthouse, built in 1858, is now automated. The trail is a Makah Wilderness Area, so please stay on the trail and supervise children closely. You will need a $10-per-car Makah Recreation Permit to hike the Cape Flattery Trail. Permits can be purchased at the Makah Marina, Washburn’s General Store, Makah Tribal Center, Makah Mini Mart and the Makah Museum. Neah Bay Chamber of Commerce (neahbaywa.com) features additional information about Neah Bay.

Ozette Loop BIRDS GALORE The North/West Coast located beneath the Pacific flyway, is where birdwatchers find great opportunities to observe more than 250 different species that visit the Neah Bay area. Keep an eye out for bald eagles, especially rare albino eagles occasionally seen between Clallam Bay and Neah Bay. Whenever you go, be sure to obey signs warning about areas that are open only to tribal members.


Things to see

on the North/West Coast

Clallam Bay Spit Community Beach County Park is a 33-acre day-use county park located in the center of the Clallam Bay community, where the water of the Clallam River empties into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The park includes public access to Clallam Spit, a mile of a sand/gravel saltwater beach and access to the Clallam River. Watch for eagles and osprey feeding on the beach. It also is common to see a variety of marine life just offshore. Pillar Point County Park is located 10 miles east of Clallam Bay on Highway 112. It offers saltwater beach access and a concrete launch ramp for small boats and is a great place to start a kayak trip. Pull off the road and picnic as you feel the breeze blowing off the water and hear the shorebirds. This area is also the location of an Audubondesignated IBA (Important Bird Area) due to the unique estuary bay shoreline habitat and wide variety of shorebirds.

Fishing, hunting LOWDOWN Fishing Aplenty Everything from heavy, world-class salmon to small, fun-to-fight alpine brook trout can be caught with a rod and reel in waters across the North Olympic Peninsula. Pick up a copy of the Washington State Sportfishing Rules pamphlet while you’re here, as well as Olympic National Park’s sportfishing guide. The pamphlets detail boundaries and regulations, as well as licensing. Current regulations usually are available at most tackle shops, sporting goods stores or wherever fishing licenses are sold. Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife fishing regulations are at 360-902-2500, wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/ regulations. Licensing: Anglers can renew their license by visiting fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov or by calling 866-246-9453. A list of license vendors is available online at wdfw.wa.gov/licensing/ vendors. Regulations: All anglers should refer to Fish and Wildlife fishing regulations before departing on any trip. Refer to the state’s Sportfishing Rules pamphlet, which is available where licenses are sold or online. Check regulations before fishing. Boater alert: A warning to private boaters with state fishing licenses only: Make sure you stay on the U.S. side of the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

Those wanting to try the Canadian half first must obtain a license from British Columbia. More information: The Peninsula Daily News publishes local outdoor columns in the sports section Thursdays and Fridays. They also are available online at peninsuladailynews.com. HUNTING Visitors to the North Olympic Peninsula can hunt everything from elk and deer to bear and cougar — even rabbit and grouse. Areas around Forks, Clallam Bay, Neah Bay and Sequim provide chances at large Roosevelt elk, while blacktailed deer can be found all around the Peninsula. Information about hunting seasons and regulations can be found in the Washington Big Game Hunting Seasons and Regulations pamphlet or the Migratory Waterfowl and Upland Game Season rules pamphlet, both of which also lay out boundaries, restrictions and licensing information. Pamphlets usually are available wherever licenses are sold and also can be downloaded at wdfw.wa.gov. Note that hunting is prohibited inside Olympic National Park. Washington law requires first-time hunters born after Jan. 1, 1972, to successfully complete a hunter education class before they can purchase a hunting license. Shellfishing You can find bucket-

loads of oysters and clams. Going after crab and shrimp also are popular pursuits. Seasons fluctuate, and anyone wanting to go after razor or other clams, oysters and crab should first check the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife regulations. The best way to figure out what’s open and what’s not is to visit wdfw. wa.gov/fishing/shellfish. Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge sets its own seasons and rules. Contact the refuge at 360-457-8451. Licenses are required for shellfish harvesting and may be purchased at most tackle shops and other stores. A coastal favorite, razor clams are available on many coastal beaches, but domoic acid, a naturally occurring marine toxin that can cause amnesic shellfish poisoning in humans, sometimes causes digging closures. But in recent years, beaches have routinely opened to harvesting. Other species of shellfish currently are considered unsafe and should not be harvested from any beach on the state coastline. For information on which shellfish are and are not safe, and dates and locations on seasons, contact the state Department of Health’s beach closures/ shellfish toxin hotline at 800-562-5632 or log onto the Fish and Wildlife website at wdfw.wa.gov.


An all-seasons hike The Sand Point Trail leads to an ocean campground complete with crashing breakers, a sandy beach and 500-year-old Makah tribal petroglyphs on rocks. Care and respect should be used when searching for the petroglyphs, which are etched into a cluster of shore-hugging boulders known as the Wedding Rocks. Two trails depart from Ozette Lake Campground. The preferred trail is Sand Point, which at 3 miles is shorter than the trek to Cape Alava. Sand Point Trail is also considered easier because it is all on boardwalk. Be aware of high tide, especially during the winter months when tides are often higher, and take care when walking on the slippery, often- mossstrewn boardwalk. To get to the trailhead, take state Highway 112 to the “Ozette Lake” sign and turn onto Hoko-Ozette Road. Follow the road 22 miles to the trailhead at the north end of Lake Ozette. A ranger station is located at the trailhead.

Easy to reach waterfalls Sol Duc Falls

Sol Duc Falls can be enjoyed yearround, but the route may require snowshoes in the winter. During the autumn’s rainy season and in early spring, the runoff from the falls is pretty spectacular. Take U.S. Highway 101 west from Port Angeles for 30 miles, or 26 miles east from Forks. Turn southeast on the Sol Duc Hot Springs road and follow it 14 miles to the trailhead parking lot. Trail guide maps are available at the trailhead. There is a wide gravel trail and a railed viewing area at this falls.

Madison Creek Falls is an easy hike just west of Port Angeles. Follow U.S. Highway 101 to Olympic Hot Springs Road. Turn south and follow the road to the parking area. The trailhead begins right at the parking lot. This is the park’s most accessible waterfall — only about 150 yards from the parking area over a fully paved, accessible trail. The falls is listed as a 60-foot-high cascade by the National Park Service. Several old-growth trees and stumps line the trail. A nearby picnic area in an old orchard provides an easy place for families to dine and enjoy the beauty of the Elwha Valley.

Marymere Falls

Fall Winter 2014-2015

Marymere Falls is a 1.8-mile round-trip trail that leads day hikers through some of the park’s most pristine environment, weaving through old-growth forest. To reach the falls, take U.S. Highway 101 west from Port Angeles to the Storm King Ranger Station on Lake Crescent. The trailhead begins as a paved walkway that runs alongside the ranger station, a re-creation of the original station built in the early 1900s. You’ll see a nice view of the north side of the lake before wandering inland toward the falls. For about the first three-quarters of a mile of the trail wheelchairs may be used with assistance. The final trek to the falls is a steep uphill climb, with the choice of two lookouts, one about 50 feet above the falls, the other at its base.

west end

Did you know?

Trees covered in moss surrounded by enormous ferns, beaches dotted with sea stacks and rolling rivers tinted by glacier powder dominate the wild West End. The Hoh Rain Forest receives 100-plus inches of rain each year and is one of the best examples of a temperate rain forest in the world. Located along the Pacific Ocean, LaPush is home to the Quileute tribe. In the autumn and winter months, visitors can enjoy watching spectacular high tides crashing against sea stacks and cobble-strewn shores. In the spring, visitors can look for migrating gray whales, while surfing and kayaking off First Beach are popular during the summer. Fishing charters also are ready to help you bring home a catch. 84

Second Beach

A few Things to see and do

on the wild and wonderful West End

Second Beach is a relatively easy hike near LaPush that rewards you with ocean views, seastacks and a walk through a coastal forest. At 0.7 miles, it is a “happy medium” between the roadside First Beach and the longer trek of Third Beach. During the winter months, take note of higher tides and exercise caution when climbing over driftwood that stacks up at the end of the trail. At low tide, the north end of the beach offers wonderful tide pool opportunities.

Road to LaPush

Fishing on the West End

The West End is the perfect place to try your hand at freshwater or saltwater fishing. Several experienced tour guides offer a variety of trips on local rivers or off the coast. Book tours well in advance. Check out the Forks Chamber of Commerce (forkswa.com), the Neah Bay Chamber of Commerce, (neahbaywa.com) or the Clallam Bay Sekiu Chamber of Commerce (clallambay.com or sekiu.com) for advice on booking a tour.

LaPush is a wonderful place to stretch your legs after making the journey to the coast. The seafront town is the home of the Quileute tribe and offers beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean. Stroll along First Beach to watch seabirds soar above James Island (the island is called a-ka-lat in the Quileute language, which translates to the “top of the rock”). The island, located at the mouth of the Quillayute River, is sacred to tribal members. Throughout the years, the island has been used to spot whales and was a burial spot for Quileute chiefs. Public access to the island is not permitted. First Beach is one of the main spots to watch for gray whales as they migrate along the coast. The beach also is a great place to watch tribal fishermen return after a long day on the water. A short stroll over to the Quileute Harbor Marina will allow you to see them unload their catches and to view colorful stacks of crab pots, nets and coolers. Keep your eyes open for brown pelicans, which often fish in the river. As you wander through town, stop by the general store for a snack and head back out to the beach to watch the sun set over the Pacific.

Hoh Rain Forest

Rain Forests, Beaches & more THE WEST END Abundant rain forests, wild rivers and coastal beaches are just part of the allure of the West End. The lush forests in the Quinault, Queets, Hoh and Bogachiel valleys are spectacular examples of primeval temperate rain forest. The drive to get there is beautiful in its own right, but the going can be a bit slower than most Peninsula trips. The main route, U.S. Highway 101, twists and turns around Lake Crescent, and you may compete with recreational vehicles and log trucks, but gaining an appreciation for natural beauty, pristine even outside Olympic National Park boundaries, makes it worthwhile. FORKS The city acts as the gateway to the Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National Park. A self-guided tour allows those wanting a look back in history to stop at signposts in downtown Forks that feature pictures and stories about historic buildings or happenings. For more information, stop by the Forks Chamber of Commerce at 1411 S. Forks Ave. (360-374-2531, forkswa.com). L e t

OCEAN Beaches Another glory of the West End is the accessibility of its beautiful beaches. Close to LaPush are Second Beach and Third Beach. Both involve short hikes through forest but are worth the effort as you are rewarded with long stretches of beach. Ruby Beach, located about 35 miles south of Forks, is one of the most scenic beaches in the state that is accessible to the public. It offers rugged sea stacks, flat sand and a small stream that flows through it at the base of the short trail from the parking lot. The beaches at Kalaloch are easy walks from car to shore. Beaches are numbered 6, 4, 3, 2 and 1.

A stop by the Forks Timber Museum and the Forks Loggers Memorial is a must. You can’t miss the museum, which is located near the south end of town. Just keep an eye out for a 12-foottall carved logger. This cozy little museum has exhibits depicting local history dating back to the 1870s. Constructed in 1990 by the Forks High School carpentry class, the 3,200-square-foot building provides a glimpse into the local history of the timber industry. Among the displays are an old-time steam donkey, threshing machine and bunkhouse. A free, self-guided tour allows those looking to explore history to stop at one of nine signposts in downtown Forks that feature pictures and stories about historic buildings or happenings. Cross-cut and chain saws used by loggers, a bunkhouse showing where they slept and how they lived, and books and video footage of men working are other highlights of the tour. Once outside the museum, stop in the memorial garden for a moment. There’s even a fire lookout tower and nature trails to stretch your legs.

ORDERS TO GO (in Forks) 220 North Forks Ave 90

pack your camera  A camera is very important to carry along during your visit to Washington’s coastal beaches, and the West End has some of the most accessible beaches on the North Olympic Peninsula. Rialto Beach features views of offshore islands, pounding waves, giant drift logs and plenty of beach cobbles, making it one of the most popular beaches to visit. During your trek along Rialto Beach, watch for bald eagles perched in the taller trees along the bluff. A variety of other birds will entertain you along the way. Watch for black oystercatchers, guillemots, grebes, scoters and harlequin ducks as you stroll. Hole-in-the-Wall, a natural sea-carved arch, is about 1.5 miles north of Rialto Beach. It is within the Olympic wilderness but can easily be reached at low tide from Rialto Beach. At about 1 mile, you will reach Ellen Creek. To avoid wet footwear, look for a log to cross or take your shoes off to plod through the chilly water. Do not cross through Hole-in-theWall when the tide begins to cover the floor of the arch. Take care when exploring under and near the arch. Rialto Beach, located about 75 miles from Port Angeles, is accessible by Mora Road, off LaPush Road. The Kalaloch area of Washington’s wild, wondrous coast — about 35

miles south of Forks on U.S. Highway 101 — has all-season attractions. Ruby Beach is at the northernmost tip of the seven main spots in the Kalaloch area. From there, marked trails offer access to pristine, sandy beaches. Right in the area of Kalaloch Lodge and campground are several unnamed paths that also allow close contact with the sand and waves. In the absence of fog, sunsets spread a spectacular light over the sea, setting up the potential for a photographer’s paradise. Migrating shorebirds and sea mammals such as otters can be observed, especially with binoculars. At low tide, seek out the tide pools for a glimpse at all the marine life. Grab your shovel and bucket during extremely low or minus tides and go clamming on the exposed beaches or crabbing in the shallow waters. But beware of “killer logs,” as the locals call them. Particularly on the Pacific coast, the tall conifers that make the Peninsula so beautiful can be a hazard when washed up by the surf as logs and driftwood on the beaches. As you clamber over these beached logs, it’s hard to believe you can’t always see them coming, but as a wave crests, it can obscure your view of what is riding behind it. Those who want to stay a night or two in the area have a few options.


Olympic National Park provides a campground with flush toilets and water, although no utility hookups are available for recreational vehicles. Kalaloch Lodge also has rustic cabins and other accommodations. Both locations are open all year. More information can be obtained by phoning the park at 360-565-3130 or the lodge at 360-962-2271. Watch for Tides The Olympic Peninsula’s northern and Pacific coasts offer a wealth of beaches for recreational fun, but if you plan to explore them, keep an eye on the tides and surf. Rescues by the Coast Guard, Olympic National Park rangers or both are occasionally necessary for people who either failed or didn’t know to consult a tide table and weather report.

Headlands extending out to the water’s edge can create alcoves and grottos that may be readily accessible by thin strips of beach exposed during low tides. Unfortunately, when the tide turns, the incoming waters can trap visitors who must frantically scramble to reach high ground. Beware of “king tides” — higherthan-usual winter tides that embrace Washington shores — which occur when the gravitational pulls of the sun and moon reinforce one another. Tide books are available at local shops. Always keep an eye on the waves, whether you’re in the water or walking along the shore. Remember that logs so easily tossed ashore are still loose. Many a beachcomber has fallen and been hurt when logs shift on the beach.

victoria

Did you know?

Victoria has been the capital of British Columbia dating back to colonial days, with the first government buildings erected in 1859. Construction on the current legislative buildings began in 1897, with additions built in several phases from 1911 to 1915. The buildings are a gallery of the finest materials, including tons of marble from as far away as Verona, Italy, that surround provincial leaders. Stained glass is everywhere, including the showcase Queen Victoria Diamond Jubilee window in the reception room near the Legislative Chamber. Self-guided tours are available. Annually, about 900 school groups use a visit to parliament to learn about comparative governments, including hundreds of groups from Washington state. All tours are free of charge.

Parliament Buildings in Victoria


things to see in Victoria, B.C. What started as a sweet pea and a single rose in 1904 has blossomed into The Butchart Gardens, a 55-acre cascade of color that overwhelms the senses. Well more than 1,000 varieties of flowers can be enjoyed during a walk through the gardens, but allow yourself plenty of time: One visit can take several hours. The former cement factory and quarry site at Tod Inlet can be reached by taking the ferry from Port Angeles to Victoria, then traveling 12 miles north by bus or car. Transit and tour buses are found just east of the Victoria ferry landing. Butchart is really a series of gardens, each with a distinct flair. The gardens’ full-time, year-round gardeners are constantly planting different flowers, which are identified in a published flower guide noting different flowers by common names written in several languages. The gardens keep with the Victorian tradition of seasonally changing the outstanding floral displays. In autumn, brilliant fall colors take over the gardens. During the winter, walk past the Twelve Days of Christmas displays and go skating on the 3,300-squarefoot outdoor rink that is installed just for the holiday season. After dark, enjoy the colored lights that illuminate the plants. Many plants still grow in the temperate winter climate and eventually make way for new spring blooms. The gardens are open year-round. Admission prices vary. Butchart Gardens, 866-652-4422, butchartgardens.com. Chinatown

The Butchart Gardens

Art Gallery of Greater Victoria

A bit farther from downtown — so you may want to catch a ride — the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, 1040 Moss St., is a public art museum with almost 17,000 works of art. When it first opened in 1951, the gallery exhibited art in the historic Spencer Mansion. The mansion, built in 1889, is now adjacent to the museum’s seven modern galleries. The property stretched from Fort Street to Rockland Avenue and incorporated formal gardens, two tennis courts, stables and a coach house. The crowning feature, the belvedere, commands an inspiring view of the ocean. You also can catch a ride — travel by pedicab for a relaxing tour filled with historical tidbits — to Craigdarroch Castle, 1050 Joan Crescent, a lavishly furnished 1890s mansion. This legendary Victorian mansion was built on a hill overlooking beautiful Victoria. It has 39 rooms, 87 steps to the tower, stained glass and woodwork.

Victoria’s Chinatown, founded in 1858, is the oldest and most intact such district in Canada. It is surrounded by cultural, entertainment venues as well as being a venue itself. Chinatown is located just minutes away from other sites of interests such as Bay Centre, the Empress Hotel, Market Square and others. If you enter from Government Street, you’ll pass under the ornamental Gate of Harmonious Interest. The gate is made of Taiwanese ceramic tiles and elaborate, decorative panels. Explore the shops and stands as you wander through narrow alleys like the historic Fan Tan Alley, which is only 5 feet wide and three stories tall.

rich with BRITISH charm Victoria, a city full of classic British charm, is just a ferry ride away. While the trip from Port Angeles may not exactly rank as an overseas journey, travelers definitely are in another country when they set foot in historic and charming Victoria. Make the approximately 20-mile trip to Victoria for a one-day trek, a weekend getaway or a longer vacation, using the quaint city with the British atmosphere as the starting point for an extended tour of Vancouver Island. The MV Coho ferry from Port Angeles lands in downtown Victoria — a city with an estimated metropolitan population of more than 300,000 — after a scenic cruise across the Strait of Juan de Fuca and through Victoria Harbour. The Fairmont Empress Hotel dominates the waterfront as ferry passengers arrive at Victoria’s Inner Harbour from Port Angeles. Harbor tours, available by a number of operators, give a different perspective of the distinctly British city. Victoria also is an excellent city for sightseeing by foot. Parliament Buildings, the Royal British Columbia Museum, downtown shops, restaurants and Chinatown are all located within walking distance of the ferry landing. Public transportation easily can be found to reach other popular sites.

First-time visitors should start at the Greater Victoria Visitor Information Center, on the waterfront across from the imposing Empress Hotel, just a short walk from the ferry terminal. The center has maps, brochures, information on accommodations and plenty of friendly advice. The Royal British Columbia Museum, located near the Parliament Buildings, has special exhibits and an unparalleled First Nations area. The National Geographic Theater at the museum presents an IMAX experience with a six-story-high screen showing several movies that provide worldwide adventures. Plenty of shops can be found along Government Street. The real ‘‘main street,’’ however, is Douglas Street, and everything from major department stores to out-of-the-way specialty shops can be found on side streets off Douglas between Courtney and Pembroke. Food-fanciers should note that some of the finest bakeries in the world are found on Fort Street between Douglas and Blanshard. Elsewhere, gourmet restaurants are dotted throughout the downtown area, featuring everything from escargot to fish and chips. And authentic British and Irish pubs are a great way to take a break from shopping and walking.

Old-fashioned London double-decker buses leave on tours from in front of the Empress Hotel for such attractions as the world-famous Butchart Gardens. Or, if you’re looking for a more romantic kind of transport, there are horse-drawn carriages available. Catch the Ferry The North Olympic Peninsula is the gateway to an international experience. The privately owned Black Ball Ferry Line operates the MV Coho, which takes both passengers and vehicles between Port Angeles and Victoria daily. Departure times vary seasonally, with up to four round-trips available during the peak summer months. The 2015 schedule was not yet available as of publication. Crossing time takes approximately 90 minutes. Departures leave from the Port Angeles ferry landing, 101 E. Railroad Ave., and return from the Victoria ferry landing, 430 Belleville St. For schedule and fare information, contact Black Ball Ferry Line (360-4574491, cohoferry.com).

Required Crossing Documents

following if taking the ferry between the two countries: • Passport, passport cards or trusted travel program cards (NEXUS, SENTRI and FAST) • Enhanced driver’s license/identification card • U.S. military identification with military travel orders, U.S. Coast Guard Merchant Marine ID document when traveling on official maritime business, or enhanced tribal cards Visitors to the North Olympic Peninsula who are not U.S. or Canadian citizens will be required to have a passport and possibly a visa to enter the United States. A permanent resident of the U.S. will be required to show his or her immigration “green card” at the ports of entry into Canada and the United States. All U.S. and Canadian citizens 15 and

younger only need proof of their citizenship with an original or photocopy of a birth certificate or citizenship card. Groups of U.S. and Canadian citizen children 18 and younger, when traveling with a school or religious group, social organization or sports team, will be able to enter under adult supervision with originals or copies of their birth certificates or other proof of citizenship. Those with a criminal record — including a DUI — can be denied entry into Canada. However, there is a process for applying for a waiver. For more information, visit U.S. Customs and Border Protection at cbp.gov and Canadian Border Services at cbsa-asfc.gc.ca. Government personnel at the ferry terminals in Port Angeles and Victoria can also answer questions.

All U.S. citizens and permanent residents who cross the international border must carry a valid passport or an accepted traveler program card to return to the United States via sea, including passengers aboard the ferry to the Port Angeles port of entry. This is due to the implementation of the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative, a homeland security measure that resulted from the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. It also affects travel to Mexico, Bermuda and Caribbean nations. Oral declarations of citizenship alone are not accepted. Citizens of the United States and Canada will need to present one of the
