TEAM ROAD TRIP ITINERARY: THINGS TO DO & SEE WHILE YOUR TEAMMATES RUN THE RELAY RACE
Here are a few Frosty Moss relay race TEAM ROAD TRIP SIGHTS & STOPS we recommend tackling while your teammates are running throughout the Olympic Peninsula and near the Olympic National Park.
Plan on sticking to just one choice to make sure you don’t keep your runner waiting. Then, save the other suggestions for tomorrow’s sightseeing itinerary.
SQUEEZE IN A CUP OF JOE ON A SCENIC LAKE, HOOF IT TO A 90-FOOT WATERFALL, OR SNEAK IN SOME LAKESIDE STRETCHING
Leg 3 is the longest leg of the Frosty Moss relay race at almost 11 miles. You’ll have a 30-minute drive to get to the exchange point at the end of the leg.
LAKE CRESCENT LODGE
Stop in at a woodsy historic lodge to caffeinate. Grab a cup of warm coffee and head for the dock. Slowly sip as you drink in the stunning Lake Crescent views.
Feeling energetic this morning? Stop for a quick 1.8 mile round-trip jaunt to gaze at a 90-foot waterfall. Marymere Falls is near lake Crescent and on the way to the far end of Leg 3.
How about a sun salutation on the beach or a refreshing polar bear plunge into Lake Crescent to get your body flowing? East Beach is a low-key lakeside stop on the way to your exchange point.
SHOP FOR A MOMENTO AT A HISTORIC GENERAL STORE & POST OFFICE
The Joyce General Store is a true small-town store and post office with a little bit of everything housed in a historic building. Drop a Sasquatch postcard in the mail right from the Frosty Moss relay race course!
SEE SOME SEA LIFE & OLD WWII BUNKERS AT SALT CREEK COUNTY PARK
You have a 20-minute drive to the exchange at the end of this leg. In 10-minutes, you can see some national-park-level scenery of the Strait of Juan de Fuca here, look for sea life (big and small), or check out the historic WWII bunkers.
PEER FROM THE PORT ANGELES PIER AND PICK UP SOME PNW-INSPIRED GOODS
You’ll be cruising through downtown Port Angeles where you can scramble to the City Pier for a quick birds-eye view of the Strait where you can see the majestic Mt. Baker and Canada. Then, walk a few blocks to MOSS to shop for Pacific Northwest-y hoodies, hats, clothing, gear, and other “goods from the woods”. MOSS is one of our sponsors, so let’s show them how thankful we are for supporting this annual Pacific Northwest relay race.
MEET “AGNES”, SNACK ON ICE CREAM & SNUGGLE WITH CUTE LITTLE CRITTERS
Don’t miss an opportunity to stop in at Agnew Grocery and Feed. Marvel at the 1941 Ford farm truck named “Agnes” and a collection of old farm equipment while kicking back on a picnic bench petting the “local wildlife” (cats, bunnies, and goats). Reward yourself for a race well done so far with a double scoop ice cream cone. Consider picking up a fun sweatshirt to keep you warm while exploring the Olympic National Park tomorrow.
VISIT THE LARGEST RAILROAD TRESTLE ON THE OLYMPIC PENINSULA
Because the Frosty Moss is moved to May in 2021, it will be light enough to enjoy a quick stop at the 410-foot-long Johnson Creek Railroad Trestle that rises 86 feet above the creek. Your team runner will get to see it, but you’ll miss a very cool feature of the Olympic Discovery Trail if you don’t stop to take a look.
After you leave Sequim and to Highway 101, you will turn left onto Whitefeather Way. The trestle will be almost immediately off to the left but go past it just a bit to find a safe parking spot.
