to About

With 2023 among us, we are moving forward in a more focused manner. Two occurrences have effected this path:

1) A group of represented folks from agencies and recreation organizations have formed called "Olympic Peninsula Outdoor Recreation Collaborative". They are working on a charter to address broader topics related to the Oly Pen.

2) Trail group representatives that perform trail work and trail maintenance in the Park and with the Forest have also come together to focus on trails and communicate, coordinate, and collaborate to keep rec trails open.

This left us open to focus our work on the West Fork Humptulips and Wynoochee watersheds. 

We continue to have our interest and updates for all things Oly Pen. We have exciting new partnerships that allow us to directly have an impact on keeping access open. This is ALL volunteer driven. Follow us on our FB page here to keep updated about our projects and for invites to work parties.


We operate under a Board driven membership and decision making structure. The individual membership acts as a support and information link to what is happening. There will be opportunities for volunteering on different projects and ways to present your input as members. Transparency is key and will be a continued platform.


As outdoor recreationists, our focus will be on maintaining trails and the roads that lead us to those places. Our spectrum is wide to include stewardship, volunteering, conservation, education, and more. 

Thank you for stopping by!
