The Peninsula Trails Coalition, founded in 1988, is the all-volunteer nonprofit that advocates for the completion and maintenance of the Olympic Discovery Trail, a nonmotorized multiuse trail system connecting communities across Washington’s North Olympic Peninsula. The ODT is a catalyst for recreation, tourism, and economic development.
