Discovery Trail is a relatively flat trail which traverses the Port Angeles foothills to Lake Crescent.
The entire 20.5mi (5500' ascent) ride is about 60% singletrack, with 8mi of road riding (mostly on Beach Agate Rd, to get to the western section).
A more typical ride covers the section from SR112 to Eden Valley Rd, with just a 1.4mi section of state forest road to connect the first two singletrack segments.
The nearby 10mi (1200' ascent) Spruce Railroad rail-to-trail offers an even easier ride, for those seeking a pleasant cruise around Lake Crescent. Expect to share the trail with many other users.
