The Port Gamble trails have reopened.

Olympic Resource Management (ORM), the subsidiary of Pope Resources that manages the company’s timberlands, announced today that all of the Hood Canal Tree Farm lands in Kitsap, Jefferson and Mason counties have reopened for public use, thanks to the recent fall rains in western Washington.

Port Gamble, trails, joggersThe company’s timberlands have been closed to public access since mid-September due to extreme fire danger. Pope Resources owns and manages nearly 71,000 acres on its Hood Canal Tree Farm in these three counties.

This is good news for the thousands of people who regularly use the company’s property for outdoor recreation. The network of nearly 50 miles of trails and logging roads that crisscross on the Gamble Block south of the town of Port Gamble is particularly popular with area hikers, mountain bikers, trail runners, birders and other outdoor recreation enthusiasts.

The Hood Canal Tree Farm also is abundant with wildlife, making it popular this time of year with deer hunters. Modern firearms deer season opened Oct. 13 in Washington state and runs through the end of October for some species of deer. It’s important to note, however, that the Gamble Block is not open to hunters at any time.
