Easy paved trail with views of the Port Angeles Harbor and, on clear days, of Vancouver Island.

Description

You can park on either end, Morse Creek, or in downtown Port Angeles. Almost the entire trail is paved, and the one 0.1 mi section that is not is hard packed dirt and gravel.

As far as the Olympic Discovery Trail goes, I believe this is one of the nicest sections as it has constant expansive, seaward views.

Flora & Fauna

Sea otters, occasional sea lions, kingfishers, and other seabirds.
