County to pave another six miles of Olympic Discovery Trail
July 19th, 2013 - 6:16am
(Port Angeles) -- Another section of the Olympic Discovery Trail will be paved this summer.
Clallam County transportation program manager Rich James says this section will be a total of 6 miles to the west of Lake Crescent.
The section will add to the already paved 40 miles of trail, 26 of which stretch from Port Angeles to Sequim. James says not only will the trail be safer for all users, but it also is adding to the attraction of Clallam County.
The soon-to-be paved section will weave through second-growth timber as well as provide three areas where trail-goers can see the Sol Duc River, and get down to fish in it.
The area of the trail that the new paved segment will travel through was originally built as a logging railroad during WW1 in order to remove spruce from the woods for WW1 biplanes.
