2018 NW Regional Walking Festival July 13-15, 2018



On-line and paper registration will be available February 1, 2018.

The festival will be headquartered at the Eagles Lodge in Port Angeles, WA. The lodge is located at 2843 E Myrtle St, Port Angeles, WA.  Daily hours at the lodge will be 8:00am to 5:00pm.

Lodging:  There is not a central hotel for the festival as the nature of this town and area includes many varied options with smaller hotels, Airbnb and other choices.  Please reserve early as some hotels double their prices during this short summer window with access to the Olympic National Park. Here is a link to some possibilities:  http://www.portangeles.org/list/ql/lodging-travel-15

There will be a traditional event hosted by the Olympic Peninsula Explorers on Thursday July 12th at Anderson Lake State Park in Chimacum for you to enjoy on your way to the festival. This walk will also be available during the festival.

Social events during the festival include a Friday late afternoon “Howdy-Do” time and a dinner being planned for Saturday evening.  Details will follow at a later time.

Our Regional Director will be scheduling some small training classes available over the festival week-end.

Festival events include 5 walks.  The bike on the Olympic Discovery Trail is sanctioned for the year already and we are investigating a location for a swim. Details on the walks are here:  http://www.esva.online/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/NW-Reg-Wallking-Festival.pdf

Watch here for updates as the committee is working to bring you an awesome event on The Olympic Peninsula.
