Taking this quick route through Sequim is an easy, flat, six mile route that winds its way through the city streets from the start at Carrie Blake Park east of town, and then farmland and prairie to the west. You’ll follow the Olympic Discovery Trail (ODT) all the way, though the initial mile or so is on city streets through residential areas–so look carefully for pavement markings and roadside ODT signs. From the start at Carrie Blake Park, take Fir Street west to North Sequim Ave. Turn right (north) for two blocks to West Hendrickson Road, then follow the trail along West Hendrickson to Priest Road. At this point, the ODT turns south for a couple hundred yards or so alongside Priest before heading west again into Railroad Bridge Park.
Here you’ll cross the Dungeness River on a historic trestle bridge–one of the last remaining wood truss railroad bridges in Washington State.
Going west from the park, the trail is on railroad grade as it passes farmland and the Sequim Valley Airport. There is an equestrian side path starting on the west side of the bridge and continuing west.
This particular route ends at the Kitchen-Dick Road crossing, but you can continue west on the ODT if six miles ends up just getting you warmed up and eager to explore further.
