Juneteenth Pride Hike hosted by BIPoC & Pride Outdoors

June 22 at 10:00 am 1:00 pm

Join North Olympic Land Trust and BIPoC & Pride Outdoors for a group hike in celebration of Juneteenth and Pride Month!

Meet at the Elk Creek Conservation Area parking lot in Forks at 10 am! Please be mindful of your parking, as the parking lot is small. Carpools are recommended, and additional parking is available on the shoulder along the side of the road. There are no bathrooms on site.

The trail is 2.6 miles out and back along a mix of gravel and natural surfaces, with a small section of 10% grade. Disabled Hikers rated this trail as 3 spoons.

Please wear sturdy hiking shoes and bring anything you need to feel comfortable spending a couple hours on the trail.

The Elk Creek Conservation Area is a 255-acre property located just east of Forks, Washington. It’s a great place to go for a hike if you’re looking for a quiet, peaceful place to experience the temperate rainforest of the Olympic Peninsula. The conservation area is owned by North Olympic Land Trust and protects riparian forest, wetlands, and a stretch of Elk Creek, a tributary to the Calawah River.
