The completed trail stetches 30 miles from Sequim to Port Angeles and points beyond. Another 30 miles are funded and under construction, mostly west of Lake Crescent. It will ultimately stretch 100 miles from Port Townsend, at the East end, to the Pacific Coast at the West end.

Leaving from the inn, the bike trail heading east towards Sequim is flat and meanders through farmland and between small acreages and yards. The trail heading west to Port Angeles is rolling and more strenuous, but provides outstanding scenery along the ocean. The majestic Olympic Mountains are visible from both directions.
