Section 1 of the Washington Parks Bicycle Route begins by heading west out of Sedro-Woolley to Anacortes, with ferry options for riding through several of the San Juan Islands.

The route follows the Olympic Discovery Trail from Sequim to Port Angeles, passing the entry to Olympic National Park. The route then heads west to Forks on the peninsula. South of Forks you'll encounter incredible views and ample opportunities to explore the shorelines from the beach parking lots.

Elma is where you choose to continue on the main route or connect to the 111-mile Sound Alternate. It is a mostly rural connection back to Port Townsend that includes a spur to the Bremerton ferry, with an option for travel to Seattle.

Washington Parks Map 2 shows riders how to continue on from Elma -- east into central Washington, and circling north then west all the way back to Sedro-Wooley.
Adventure Cycling maps are created by cyclists, for cyclists, and they are some of the best available for those in search of discovery and adventure in North America. The maps reflect the association's research as well as suggestions from thousands of cyclists who have explored the Adventure Cycling Route Network. Adventure Cycling develops the best cross-country, loop, coastal, and inland cycling routes available, with turn-by-turn directions, detailed navigational instructions for the tricky sections, and elevation profiles in the high country.
