Sequim’s Top summer activities
If you have to choose one summer activity to enjoy in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley, let it be hiking. Sequim’s backyard is the Olympic National Park; a place where you can spend a lifetime exploring new trails, never repeating your journey. From the 11 mile journey to the Dungeness Spit lighthouse and back, to the rugged peaks of the Olympic Mountains, Sequim has hiking trails suitable for all ages and experience levels. Hiking the hills of Hurricane Ridge is a local favorite, but there are countless other trails to choose from as well. If you’d rather pedal your way around the Olympic Peninsula, try out the Olympic Discovery Trail. This ever-popular biking trail stretches 120 beautiful miles from Port Townsend to Port Angeles. There is also plenty of mountain biking available in the Olympic National Forest, such as the Burns Hill Trail above Happy Valley Road in Sequim. Or, maybe you just want to relax for a day enjoying golf on one of the 3 regional golf courses.
There may be nothing more relaxing than a morning spent fishing on the quiet waters of the Olympic Peninsula. Fisherman will be in paradise in Sequim, with a variety of fishable waters so closeby. In the Straight of Juan de Fuca, you can find halibut, cutthroat, and steelhead, in addition to shrimp, oysters, and of course Dungeness Crab in the bays. If freshwater fishing is more your style, try fishing for silver salmon in the Dungeness River, or head to one of the regional lakes and test your luck there. When it’s time to head home, you may want to stop by Graysmarsh Farms to pick some berries, or head to Nash’s Farm Store for some of the best seasonal produce around to go with that fish you just caught. Sequim is a delightful place to be at any time of year, but it’s hard to beat summertime in the beautiful Sequim-Dungeness Valley. These exceptional summer activities can be a part of your everyday life when you buy your new home on the Olympic Peninsula.
