Northern Olympic Peninsula Tour

Butcher and Baker Provisions

About this event


Tour chair note:  This is the first time PNWR has headed back to the Olympic Peninsula for a multi-day tour in three years.  In 2020, we were in the midst of Covid restrictions and this was one of the few tours we attempted.  This time, the agenda is much more "group friendly" so I hope you will join the tour!  Thanks to Eric and Sherry Breidenbach for the extensive planning and coordination to set all of this up for your enjoyment!  READ ALL OF THE INFORMATION BELOW SO YOU KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON THROUGHOUT THE WEEKEND!!


This three-day tour takes you along winding tree-lined back roads beside the water, up to spectacular views of the Olympic mountains from Hurricane Ridge and to dramatic Cape Flattery, the northwestern most point in the the continental United States.

Day 1:*Friday's tour begins in Port Gamble and ends at the Holiday Inn Express hotel in Sequim.  Scenic roads from Port Gamble to Fort Worden State Park for a picnic lunch, then on to Sequim.

*We meet in the parking area adjacent to Butcher & Baker Provision at 4719 NE State Hwy 104 in Port Gamble. This is along Highway 104 and Pacific Avenue. The Port Gamble General Store and Café is a short walk away.  We will form in our assigned groups in the grassy area.

*Arrive no later than 10:00 to find your group and sign the waiver forms.  Arrive earlier if you plan to eat breakfast first!

Day 2: Neah Bay, Cape Flattery and the Lake Crescent Lodge. We will stop at the Neah Bay Cultural & Research Center for a brief museum tour and buy parking permits for Cape Flattery. There is a short hike to the viewpoint at Cape Flattery.

*Sunday's tour departs from the hotel at 7:00am.
