Great things are happening here on the Olympic Peninsula from the endless outdoor treasures- rivers, lakes, mountains, glaciers, beaches to the annual Juan de Fuca music festival. We are so fortunate to live here and share this amazing area with people visiting from all parts of the world!
To get out there and soak up the forests, beaches, trails, and lakes with all the best equipment, we are now offering rental punchcards for kayaks, bikes, and stand up paddle (SUP) boards, which means your tenth rental is always free. Yes, it’s OK to go together on a punchcard with your friends- and rental punchcards can be mixed and matched with all three types of equipment- kayaks, bikes, and SUP’s. You might ask, where would I kayak and/or SUP? Well, there are a number of great places, one of my favorites is the glacially carved Lake Crescent in Olympic National Park where you’ll glide over the deepest blue water in the midst of Mt. Storm King and Pyramid Mtn staring down at you. Other great kayak/SUP destinations are Freshwater Bay and Lake Aldwell, both situated near Port Angeles and Olympic National Park.
And, then you might ask, “whereabouts is the best place to mountain bike?” Again, there are some sweet options very close, including our newest and most fantastic trail, the Adventure Route portion of the Olympic Discovery Trail. A number of great options are available on this trail depending on how far you would like to ride and what type of experience is suitable for your group. When you pick up your rental bikes (car racks available,) we will get you a free map and go over some great options including two loop rides. Another trail within only a few minutes of Adventures Through Kayaking is the Spruce Railroad Trail that travels along the northern shores of Lake Crescent in Olympic National Park.
