Port Gamble (Sound to Olympics) Trail Feasibility Study

Kitsap County is exploring the feasibility of an approximately 6-7 mile bicycle and pedestrian shared-use path connecting SR 104 in Port Gamble to Stottlemyer Road. If built, the bicycle and pedestrian trail will provide a non-motorized corridor connecting locations within northern Kitsap County.

Meeting Presentation

Port Gamble Trail Draft Feasibility Study:

The goal of this Trail Feasibility Study is to examine possible trail alignments, environmental concerns, design and constructability, operational constraints, and the estimated cost of constructing a paved shared-use path.

Users and design criteria:
The route and path design must be able to accommodate pedestrian and bicycle users of all ages and abilities. The shared-use path would meet Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) design standards including a minimum 10-foot wide path with slopes 5% or less or special designs for slopes between 5% and 8%.

Environmental impacts:
Minimize and mitigate potential environmental issues.

Property ownership:
The project area is under the ownership of Kitsap County Parks and a private land owner. Both land owners have interested in:

1. Continued logging operations and;

2. Protection of sensitive environmental
areas such as wetlands, creeks, and wildlife area.

Funding options:
The most likely source of funding to build and operate the shared-use path would be competitive federal, state, and regional grants.

Explored Alignment Alternatives: The preliminary work has identified two primary route alternatives as well as an alternative using portions of the two alternatives. The study area is divided into three areas:
