East Beach in August. Nice swiming spot

This tour is the classic Port Angeles area bike ride: 29 miles with a variety of scenery. There is one pass that is moderately difficult.

The portion next to Lake Crescent, part of Olympic National Park, is awesome. Stop to enjoy the crystal clear blue water.

The map shows many alternatives to this route. You can extend this route by skipping the Joyce-Piedmont turnoff and continuing on State Hwy 112: turn left on State Hwy 113 and left again on Hwy 101.
