Ever wondered about the trails on the Olympic Peninsula? Ever wanted to check those trails out?

 

Good News! Well be teaming up with the Grey Wolves Trail Crew and the US Forest Service to tackle a large washed out section of the Lower Big Quilcene Trail.

 

The washout is a little over a mile up from the trailhead, so be prepared to hike in carrying a tool or two.

 

The Lower Big Quilcene is a beautiful 6.2 mile climb above the Big Quilcene River up to the Wilderness boundary and a super fun descent back to the trailhead.
