Travel Well to Sequim
The Olympic Peninsula is a magical place! If you’re traveling in to the Sequim area for a class or workshop, we want you to travel well!
Activities and Nature
The Lower Gray Wolf trail is our favorite hike– families can take it down to the river and back for a total of 3 wilderness miles, or take it farther if you'd like. Total mileage is 8.5 miles round trip.
The Lake Angeles trail is a 6.4-mile out-and-back trail located near Port Angeles, Washington. It's steep, but the payoff is a pristine sub-alpine lake. It's also FREE (outside the national park boundary).
Hurricane Ridge (inside the national park boundary) has a number of hiking trails, from ridge-top traverses to steep trails that descend to sub-alpine lakes and valleys. It's a must-see for anyone traveling here, but you do have to pay to get into the park.
Walk "the spit" (see more below) for a 10 mile round-trip hike to the lighthouse and back.
The Peabody Trail at the Olympic National Park visitor's center in Port Angeles is a 5.6-mile out-and-back trail through a quiet wooded ravine.
A 130-mile walking and biking trail called the Olympic Discovery Trail runs through town, connecting some of the rental houses with the center. The 130-mile trail is composed of road and multi-use path and is wheelchair-access able most of the in-town miles. Today, more than half of the ODT route is on non-motorized paths with more added every year. Our center is right on the trail!
The Dungeness Wilderness Area is the entry point to the Dungeness Spit, which is a gorgeous 5½-mile sandspit that extends into Dungeness Bay and leads to a lighthouse. You can tour the lighthouse that sits at the far end, which is operated entirely by volunteers. Be sure to check tide tables and only walk during low tide.
The Dungeness River Center park has an Audubon center with beautiful displays as well as an old railroad bridge spanning the Dungeness River. At the right time of year you can watch the salmon spawning!
Sequim Bay State Park is on the Olympic Discovery Trail and has camping, access points to Sequim Bay, and great trails for romping.
Robin Hill Park is just outside of Sequim and has 195 acres of forest, meadow and wetlands with 3.5 miles of foot trails and 2.5 miles of equestrian trails.

Flying into Victoria International airport (YYJ), Canada
From the Victoria airport to The Coho Ferry terminal in downtown Victoria (about 25 km), you have three transport options.
- Taxi (approx. $50)
- Airport shuttle ($25)
- Public transport ($2.50, and quite slow)
The ferry schedule changes by season, so check it first as departures are limited. If you're travelling by car, you are wise to book a reservation. You need to arrive early to clear customs. You cannot bring fresh produce across the border. The ferry ship is old and the food selections are very limited. You arrive in Port Angeles.
Port Angeles is about a 20-minute drive from Sequim, or take a bus with Clallam Transit, route 30 (located next to the ferry station).
