For many people in the Northwest, the typical rainly fall weather of Olympic Peninsula signals an end to outdoor adventures and a slow, reluctant retreat indoors.  That’s not the case in Sunny Sequim, though. In this retiree’s paradise, you’ll be able to enjoy a range of outdoor activities throughout the fall thanks to the protective rainshadow afforded us by the Olympic Mountain Range. Bike along the scenic Olympic Discovery Trail or the abundant mountain biking trails in the Olympic National Forest, or explore miles upon miles of new hiking trails in the Olympic National Park.  For a true Northwest experience, you may even want to try your hand at foraging for delicious wild edibles.  With mild, dry temperatures, the golf courses in Sequim are always a good option, and the stunning beaches along the Strait of Juan de Fuca are never far away either.

If you’re in the mood to see a spectacular display of fall color, take a relaxing walk to Dungeness Railroad Bridge.  If you’re up for a little more adventure, head up to Hurricane Ridge to take in dramatic views of the Olympic Peninsula before continuing west to view the ever-changing landscapes at the Elwah River.  If you have children or grandchildren, you won’t want to miss the fall fun at the Sequim Pumpkin Patch, complete with horse rides, wagon rides, a corn maze, a straw maze, a haunted house, and perhaps the local favorite, the pumpkin shoot.  Fall activities are just beginning in Sequim, and the adventure is yours for the taking.
