History Hike Series: May 25 – Blyn Olympic Discovery Trail

For thousands of years, the ancestors of the S’Klallam people managed the bountiful resources of Sequim Bay. Join us on the Olympic Discovery Trail in Blyn to explore the rich history of this area on a 2.5-mile-roundtrip walk around the head of Sequim Bay. We will include a brief stop at the new Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal Library to take a peak at their beautiful new exhibits.

This is a 2.5 mile round-trip hike on a paved trail and will take approximately 90 minutes. Pre-registration required.
