The Olympic Discovery Trail
**You can follow the OTD on the whimsical map below created by Olympic Peninsula artist Per Berg.
The scenery along the OTD is a kaleidoscope of waterfront cities and towns, farmland and forest, and ocean beaches and mountain lakes. But when you bicycle or walk along the OTD, you don’t just pass pretty views, you also journey back in time. The route of the ODT is over the former tracks of three tiny railroads that were stitched together through the primeval forests of the Olympic Peninsula over a century ago.
This video is what the trail looked like back in 2013. There are new sections being added every year.
The legacy of these three tiny railroads is the Olympic Discovery Trail. So travel along the trail for one or all 140 miles and enjoy the scenery while you step back in time. The Holiday Inn Express & Suites, Sequim is adjacent to the trail and is bike friendly. Let us be your basecamp for your Olympic Discovery Trail, time-travel adventure!
