Welcome to the Olympic Discovery Trail

The Olympic Peninsula is Washington State’s premier destination for non-motorized touring.

Starting in the Victorian seaport of Port Townsend, and ending on the shores of the Pacific Ocean,
the ODT is filled with views of snow capped peaks, ocean vistas, fast flowing rivers and pristine lakes,
and everywhere the majestic forests of the Pacific Northwest.
