Welcome to sunny SEQUIM, WASHINGTON. Learn about FALL EVENTS and THINGS TO DO all year round.

Biking

The area around Sequim is ideal for bicycling. Both road and mountain cyclists will find easy, moderate to challenging rides.

Street ride:
Ride through gently rolling farmlands to the cliffs above the Strait of Juan de Fuca with spectacular views of Dungeness Spit, New Dungeness Lighthouse to the north and the Olympic Mountain range to the south. Pedal past the Dungeness Recreation Area on gentle country roads and watch for eagles, deer and elk. This is their home! Pedal down Kitchen-Dick Road and turn back down Old Olympic Highway to return to Sequim.

Olympic Discovery Trail ride:
The old Milwaukee railroad bed that ran through the valley has given way in some sections to bike trails suitable for semi-fat tires. Start at Railroad Bridge Park and pedal through the yellow post to meander through some of the most pristine scenic farmland in Dungeness Valley. The trail is not straight so you may have to take an easy jog here and there to find the next section, be sure to look for the yellow post that mark each end. Ride through Carlsborg Industrial Park and jig across Carlsborg Road to traverse beside the Sequim Valley Airport. Carefully cross Kitchen-Dick Road and ride through a private horse farm that is open for bicycles (please respect private property). This section ends on Vautier Road. Riding along the Olympic Discovery Trail also allows access to the communities of Port Townsend to the east and Port Angeles to the west. Ultimately, the trail will stretch about 100 miles west from Port Townsend to the Pacific Ocean on the Peninsula’s western end.

More sections of this trail are opening monthly, please check back often for changes and improvements to biking in Sequim.

The local bike shop, Mike's Bikes, can help you with all of your biking needs.

Mountain Bikes

Olympic National Forest has hundreds of roads suitable for mountain biking. Access is available at trailheads on Palo Alto Road (east of Sequim) and Taylor Cutoff Road (west of Sequim). Parking permits and ONF regulations on where you may bike are required and are available at the Sequim Visitor Center.

One of the ONF trails is the Lower Dungeness off Palo Alto Road. It's a steep switchbacks and fast downhills but is a real challenge for the experienced mountain biker.

Also mountain bikers will enjoy the ride up Burnt Hill Trail (Washington DNR land) which is accessible from Happy Valley Road, south of Sequim, it's a steep, four-mile climb to the top of the mountain.
