Day Three: EXPLORE OLYMPIC NATIONAL FORESTFor a true sense of just how rugged Sequim is, a visit to Olympic National Forest is needed. Sequim is located between two main trailheads within the forest: the Gray Wolf and the Dungeness trails. Before heading out, stop at the Sequim Visitor Center to purchase the required day-hike parking pass.
Drive along Palo Alto or Louella roads for about 8.1 miles to reach the Dungeness Trail. To access the Gray Wolf trailhead, travel about 7.7 miles along Taylor Cut-off and Lost Mountain roads.
Both trails provide enjoyable easy hikes. Olympic National Forest officials allow mountain bikes on several trails.
Stop at the Sequim Visitor Center, 1192 E. Washington St., to buy a day-hike parking pass ($3) and view a detailed biking trails map. This gives you permission to park your car at the trailhead in the National Forest Service areas.
