The Area.

Whether you arrive by car, plane, or ferry, come and spend one day or several in and around Port Townsend before you begin your adventure across the Olympic Peninsula on the ODT.

From the quaint seaport town of Port Townsend, you'll descend the Quimper Peninsula to the southern tip of Discovery Bay, named in 1792 by Captain George Vancouver, after his ship, the HMS Discovery. Capt. Vancouver thoroughly explored the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Puget Sound and named many geographical features in the region: the Dungeness, Olympic Mountains, and Hood Canal. From Discovery Bay, the route of the ODT follows Old Gardiner Rd, with short sections on Hwy 101. As you approach Blyn, the route follows Old Blyn Hwy. The developed trail resumes at Blyn Rd. & Old Blyn Hwy, 0.6 from Blyn, the site of the Jamestown S'Kallam Tribal Headquarters and the Longhouse Market & Deli, and the Seven Cedars Casino.
