The Trail in Bloom

Spring is the best time to enjoy forest flowers along the ODT-Adventure Route. Look for trillium, wild ginger, bleeding hearts, columbine, and more along 25 miles of singletrack between Highway 112 and Lake Crescent. Perfect for hiking, trail running, mountain biking, and horseback riding.

The Olympic Discovery Trail is a premiere multiuse path thanks to your financial support. Volunteers with the Peninsula Trails Coalition put your membership dues directly to work—literally—on the trail. Your support pays for stuff like maintenance work parties, route-finding studies, trailhead facilities, maps, and more.
