The Adventure Route

ODT crossing over Elwha River

ODT crossing over Elwha River

is being built by Clallam County volunteers as an adjunct to the Olympic Discovery Trail. It is built for active mountain bikers and equestrians. It has 25 miles of double and single track riding over hilly, forested terrain. It is a very well-constructed, well-drained, well-maintained, 3 ft wide packed earth trail. Currently about 1/3 of the trail is on logging roads, but more miles of trail are built each year, and soon it will be entirely off road.

Access Points

West End. It is accessible from the west at the west end of East Beach Rd, just past Log Cabin Resort on Lake Crescent. Parking is available at the Olympic National Park East Beach Trailhead. East End. The east trailhead can be found on the west side of Hwy 112, just a quarter mile past the Hwy 112 Elwha River bridge. The parking area accommodates 10 cars. Intermediate Access. The Joyce-Piedmont Rd is the only paved road crossing the Adventure Route. Limited parking is available along the road near the trail crossing.

Use and Parking Fees

There are no use fees for the Trail, or parking fees at the above access points. The Trail is mostly on State Dept. of Natural Resources (DNR) land, so parking along the DNR owned Joyce Access Rd where it crosses the trail may require a DNR parking pass.
