Washington State Parks has finalized an Interim Trail Plan. The planning effort was a follow up to the Miller Peninsula State Park Property Initial Trail Identification and Designation approved by Washington State Parks Director, Don Hoch, on December 8, 2014. State Park staff was advised by a Trail Advisory Group (TAG). TAG represents hiking, biking, and equestrian trail users and neighbors.
The Interim Trail Plan establishes Trail Management Objectives for the park’s trail system. Needed trail maintenance, signage and other related improvements are addressed. Cooperative agreements will be developed with volunteer organizations to assist in trail maintenance and improvements.
In 2005, an extensive public planning process was undertaken to help develop a vision for future development of this new park property. These efforts were placed on hold due to the economic downturn.
The Miller Peninsula State Park Property is over 2,800 acres in Clallam County north of Highway 101 east of the City of Sequim, WA. The property is primarily upland forest with over 3 miles of shoreline on the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Discovery Bay. Due to past land use, the existing trail system includes a network of two track roads and trails.
The property has spectacular views to the Protection Island Aquatic Reserve that is adjacent to the park property and to the surrounding mountains and Strait.
