Port Townsend Gateway Preserve protects a scenic greenbelt alongside the Larry Scott Trail so the gateway to Port Townsend is forested forever.

Port Townsend Gateway Preserve protects a scenic greenbelt alongside the Larry Scott Trail so the gateway to Port Townsend is forested forever.

Over the past few years, we have worked hard to remove non-native blackberries that were choking out the understory at this Preserve. The blackberries are in retreat, and now is the time to move forward with more native species! The Port Townsend Gateway – Railroad Avenue Preserve protects a scenic greenbelt leading into Port Townsend along the Larry Scott Trail. The greenbelt has a few open areas, a few wet areas, a few old alder and too few conifers and shrubs! Help us diversify the habitat and enhance the views for humans too.

Directions: Park cars at the Larry Scott Trail Cape George Rd trailhead. Bike or walk 1.5 miles north towards Port Townsend. The property is located directly adjacent to the trail between approximately mile 2.2 – 2.5, or across from Jacob Miller Rd.
