The Olympic Discovery Trail – that will eventually run from Port Townsend to La Push – is finally nearing Forks.
Andy Stevenson of the West Clallam County Peninsula Trails commission was in Forks talking about it last week.
Stevenson says there a public meeting to discuss a proposed route thru Forks for the trail – which currently ends at Cooper Ranch Road in the Sol Duc Valley. Stevenson says that route would require right-of-ways from the US Forest Service, the DNR and from Rayonier. He says obtaining those right-of-ways could take 3 – 7 years.
There is a public hearing in Forks on the new route. That’s on Wednesday October 14 at 6 PM at the Tillicum conference Center at the DNT building 6-7 PM.
