Olympic Discovery Trail, Spruce Railroad Trail projects are topic of March 21 talk

PORT ANGELES — Rich James, Clallam County transportation manager, will discuss the Olympic Discovery Trail and Spruce Railroad Trail projects and trailhead improvements at 7 p.m. Thursday.

The presentation will be in the Olympic National Park Visitors Center, 3002 Mount Angeles Road.

The projects are underway — with Olympic National Park support — at Lake Crescent, north of Lake Crescent to Joyce and a future trail extension is planned from Forks to La Push.

James has worked for Clallam County for 29 years, and has worked for the past 26 years on planning, funding and development of the Olympic Discovery Trail, taking it from 3 miles in 1993 to its current length of more than 90 miles.

Deputy Superintendent Lee Taylor will present a “State of the Park” report, a look back over 2018 and forward into 2019 highlighting recent and upcoming park events and news.

A “Most Inspirational Friend of Olympic National Park” award will be presented to Jeff Monroe, of Monroe House Moving in Carlsborg, for saving the endangered Enchanted Valley Chalet in 2014.

The meeting is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by Friends of Olympic National Park.
