Take a Leisurely Side Trip
The Olympic National Forest has over 200 miles of trails and some can be enjoyed year-round right outside of Quilcene, located on Highway 101 along the shores of Hood Canal. Quilcene is a short 1/2 hour drive from Port Ludlow.
Drive or hike to Mount Walker, 2804' above sea level, (5 miles outside Quilcene), the only peak facing Puget Sound that has a road to its summit and spectacular North and South viewpoints.
Port Hadlock, a few miles north of Port Ludlow, is a business and commercial area with a wide variety of stores and professional services. It is the access to Indian Island and Marrowstone Island, home to Fort Flagler State Park. Fort Flagler boasts multiple bunkers to explore, great kite flying and great camping spots.
Dungeness Spit, a National Wildlife Refuge for crabs, clams, oysters, shellfish, and birds, is about a half hour to the north. At the Olympic Game Farm, not far from the spit, you can see tigers, rhinos, bear, buffalo, elk and other animals in a preserve environment.
Port Angeles, the largest city on the North Olympic Peninsula, one hour north of Port Ludlow, is a busy harbor, ferries going to and from Victoria and entrance to Hurricane Ridge, glacier-covered peaks, subalpine tundra, and steep river valleys of the Olympic Mountains.
Historic Port Gamble, site of a Victorian-era lumber mill, museum and general store, is a 15 minute drive from Port Ludlow. Farther south is Bloedel Reserve, 150 acres of natural woodlands and gardens with over two miles of trails.

Go for A Hike!
Timberton Loop Trail: The Timberton Loop Trail is 5 miles long and located off Paradise Bay Road on Timberton Drive. For easy orientation, rocks are marked with numbers to lead you on your way. At the top of the hill, near rock 12, you’ll see a good view of the cascades, including Mt. Baker and Mt. Rainier. A great view of the Olympic Mountains can be seen between rock 17 & 18.
Ludlow Falls Scenic Interpretive Trail: This trail is short and easy, small but lush. The trail winds through a dense forest of Cedar, Fir, and Ferns and follows Ludlow Creek with several dramatic overlooks of the falls and cascades. There are picnic tables near the creek. This is a great trail for quick access to the peaceful NW forest and is a beautiful place to take a mid-day break.
A Walk on the Beach: (1.5 miles) Park your car in any of the many spaces at the marina and walk on the obvious path to the Totem Pole which is visible from the Marina office. At the Totem Pole you will see a beach to the East which you may follow around the point. Continue on this beach until you come to a concrete stairway leading to a path to a group of condominiums. At the condominiums you may follow a road back to the Marina and your safely parked car.
