Olympic Discovery Trail petition

Copied from an email:
Dear Friends & Family:

  The Peninsula Trails Coalition on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State is gathering signatures on a petition to be submitted to the WA State Parks Commission to encourage them to give a #1 priority to the development of the Olympic Discovery Trail (ODT) and the Pacific NW National Scenic Trail (PNNST) through Anderson Lake Park here in west Jefferson County.  Such a high ranking among all State Parks projects will virtually guarantee funding for the project when the Commission applies to the State Legislature for their 2019 - 2021 biennium budget.

 If you would consider signing, please go to:

  We have now gathered over two hundred individual signatures and approximately two dozen signatures from local businesses, organizations, and agencies representing thousands more north Olympic Peninsula residents.

  The development of the ODT through Anderson Lake Park (mostly on already existing Park trails) would become a segment of the ODT and the PNNST over the Eaglemount area, bypassing the very dangerous State Highway 20, and connecting the current end of the Larry Scott Memorial Trail originating in Port Townsend to the segment of the ODT recently completed at the southern end of Discovery Bay.

  Finally there is, as always, the issue of funding of a project such as this.  The last state budget allocated $1,000,000 for the County to hire a consultant to determine the optimal route, acquire the properties needed on that route, and do some initial design work.  Additional grants will eventually be needed for construction, but that could be 2+ years off.  However, State Parks personnel have explained to us that grant matching donations are very important in persuading the Parks Commission to give priority status to a project.  We are not asking for matching fund donations at this time.  However, if you wish, you may make a donation to the PTC here:

  We very much appreciate your past support of the project to complete the multi-user ODT from Port Townsend to the Pacific Ocean at LaPush and hope that you can again step forward in support of this critical link in the project by signing the petition.  Thank you very much.

Night Riding Tips

DirtRag magazine recently posted a nice article about riding at night.  Here it is:

"It’s that time of year again. With each passing day, the sun sinks in the sky a little earlier. For those of us with 9-5 jobs, getting out and riding after work without encountering darkness is impossible with the recent time change. But as we mourn the loss of evening light, we can also celebrate the dawn of another season and an opportunity to experience our favorite trails in a new way. Read more here"

Trail Work Party this Saturday 9am to noon

Volunteer Trail Work Party
Saturday, November 18th from 9 am to Noon

An upcoming volunteer work party will focus on the maintenance of City trails near 35th Street Park to fill low spots, resurfacing the trail along the 33rd Street corridor near Hancock Street. This pathway is an important connector to the trail system in the 35th Street Park area. Port Townsend Trail Crew volunteers will haul and spread gravel at low spots to keep this trail above water during the winter rainy season.

Please meet trail crew volunteers at Hancock and 32nd Streets at 9 am on November 18th, where the gravel pile will be located. Parking is available along the paved residential roads - the easiest access is to follow Hancock Street north from Hastings Avenue about 4 blocks to 32nd Street (see map attached). 

Please bring: wheelbarrows, shovels and rakes (for moving & spreading gravel), pruners & loppers (for overgrown vegetation)

Be sure to wear sturdy work boots and gloves, and dress for the weather – rain or shine, the trail work will get done! Snacks will be provided afterwards.

For more information please contact:

Alex Wisniewski, Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Director, or 360-379-5081
