The Port Ludlow Volkswalk

by Jane Holmes, Guest Writer


Teal Lake DNR Trail

Port Ludlow’s 2022 Volkswalk event will take place over three days, Friday – Sunday, August 19–21. Three walk routes will be offered, each with a 10K (6.3 mile) option and a shorter 5 or 6K (3-4 mile) option.

Walkers can pick up directions for all three walks at the registration table at the Bridge Deck near the Ludlow Beach Club; 121 Marine View Drive; Port Ludlow, WA 98365 . The registration table will be open 8 to 11 a.m. all three days. You can walk the routes of your choice at your own pace.

The Routes:

  • The Teal Lake DNR route will include parts of the Teal Lake, Niblicks, and Olympic Terrace loops for a pretty and lush 10K walk with a nice variety of scenery and lots of shade.
  • The Timberton/Bay route will explore parts of the Around the Bay Trail. The 10K option will also include the Timberton trail.
  • Anderson Lake State Park will offer a third route in Port Hadlock walking in the woods surrounding the lake.

The Port Ludlow routes will be marked with ribbons and arrows.

A Free Community Event

Everyone is invited to come out and join in the fun. Expect to discover nooks and crannies of our “village in the woods by the bay” that you’ve never seen before. Water, trail bars, and porta-potties will be provided.

We expect volksmarchers from around Washington and even Canada (border situation permitting), to come for the event. So, if you see walkers, say hello! If you notice trail markers, please leave them in place. Volunteers will pick them up after the weekend ends.

This event is co-sponsored by The Port Ludlow Village Council, Port Ludlow Associates, and the Four Plus Foolhardy Folks Volksmarch Club. Much thanks to the fabulous Port Ludlow Trail Committee which maintains our lovely trails and puts in extra work for this event.
