Discovery Park Loop Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The bike ride starts at the entrance to the east parking lot at the visitor center, about 0.1 mile inside the park. There are a few displays inside the building and an information desk. Detailed maps are for sale here, and free ones are available at a kiosk outside.
The route snakes through a meadow, making a U-shaped turn to the right. Many native grasses and flowering plants adorn
this area on the bluff , which affords some of the best views of the Olympic Peninsula. Keep an eye open for coveys of quail scampering across the old road here. Between this meadow, the seashore, and the forests, birdwatchers have identified some 270 species of birds, making the park a prime destination for birders. Bald eagles and other raptors are commonly seen here, and owls silently patrol the skies in the evening."
