Here is an opportunity for a walk in Port Ludlow if you are visiting and time is limited. A bit of quiet to reflect on things is on hand with a five minute drive from anywhere in the Port Ludlow area.
The Port Ludlow Falls trail is wonderful, protected, short interpretative trail through varied and quite surroundings. Many signs point to local micro-environments and their plant species on this adventure punctuated by the Ludlow Falls at the halfway mark. This walk can be the perfect winter afternoon break.

Among the only protected temperate rain forests in the Northern Hemisphere, the Hoh Rain Forest is a not-to-be-missed attraction on the West Side of the Olympic Peninsula. Moisture-laden air from the Pacific brings an average of 140 inches of annual rainfall to the Hoh Valley,(record of 190 inches) in addition to condensed mist that contributes another 30 inches. Nineteen miles inland from Hwy 101 you’ll find the Hoh Rain Forest Visitor Center.

Stop along the way and visit some of the historical lighthouses on the Olympic Peninsula.

As you near Neah Bay, look for tufted puffin nesting on the sea stacks from spring to early summer, and common murres perched on Tatoosh Island. Look in the water for bobbing sooty shearwaters. During the spring thousands of migrating hawks, including red-tail and sharp-shinned hawks, kettle over Cape Flattery before flying across the Strait to Vancouver Island. Occasionally, large flocks of 200 to 300 sandhill cranes entertain lucky observers with their graceful formations and mysterious trilling.
