About This Activity

Sea To Sound is a 71 mile, three-day, multi-modal group ride spanning the entire length of the Olympic Discovery Trail. It is also a fundraising opportunity for Ian's Ride, a 501c3 non profit in the State Of Washington.  The Olympic Peninsula is the farthest northwest expanse of land one can explore along the US coast. This alone would be enough to motivate many to come see it, and for the rest of us, there’s also this amazing trail!  For our group ride, we will offer aid stations and support along the entire route.  Wheelchair users are strongly encouraged!  We will support you. Just tell us what you will need.

We recognize the challenges of Covid-19 and social distancing.  We plan to keep well separated during the ride, and our aid stations will offer single use items that will be distributed safely by our volunteers who will all have masks and gloves.  We also understand that due to distance and these unprecedented times, that not everyone can join us in person. To accommodate everyone, we are offering a virtual option. This means, you can join along with us, at your own pace, from your own neighborhood.  Upload your miles here, follow along to see where you are on our route, and most importantly, Get Outside!  The virtual option has until 12/31 for completion.
 

Day 1: Friday, Aug 28th

Day 1 is 18 miles. It begins on the west side of Lake Crescent, at the Camp Creek Trailhead, 36.3 miles west of Port Angeles on Hwy 101, South of Hwy 101 on Cooper Ranch Rd. There is parking, toilets and a picnic area at the trailhead. This section of the trail is stunning, smooth, and remote with big trees and peekaboo views of Lake Crescent. The Spruce Railroad section of the trail is closed for improvements through the fall, so we will offer shuttle service back to the start from the Pyramid Peak trailhead on the north shore of Lake Crescent. Registration includes a mask, swag bag and race bib. View maps and more our website.

Day 2: Saturday, Aug 29th

Day 2 is 37 miles. It begins west of Port Angeles, at the end of Crown Z Water Road at the spectacular Elwha River suspension bridge. The trail crosses the Elwha River. Long a source of hydropower and water for mills, the Elwha dams were removed in September 2011, and the largest river flowing out of the Olympics returned to breeding all 5 salmon species, including the giant 100 pound Chinook salmon of earlier years. Although there are some hilly spots, the route is almost entirely paved. There are several excellent access points to join or exit the group ride. Many will be joining us in wheelchairs. We offer aid stations along the way and transportation assistance when needed. Registration includes a mask, swag bag and race bib. View maps and more on our website.

Day 3: Sunday, Aug 30th

Day 3 is 16 miles. It begins at the county line on Diamond Point Rd. The first half is paved with some stretches along Hwy 101, our shuttles will move you from Discovery Bay to the four corner trailhead of the Larry Scott Trail portion of the ODT. Although not paved, this is a smooth and beautiful trail. Many will be joining us in wheelchairs. We offer aid stations along the way and transportation assistance when needed. Registration includes a mask, swag bag and race bib. View maps and more on our website
