A gem within the City of DuPont, The Sequalitchew Creek Trail starts from the DuPont Civic Center and drops down to Puget Sound through a narrow, forested canyon to DuPont's only access to Puget Sound. The trail follows the historic route of the Dynamite Train which was owned by the DuPont Company and ended at a wharf on Puget Sound to ship dynamite world-wide, so the trail itself is a moderate, steady downhill/ uphill grade. You can learn more about the trail by picking up a Sequiltchew Creek Trail Map from DuPont City Hall during normal operating hours where restrooms are also available. Also, be sure to learn more about the history along this trail at the DuPont Historical Museum

The trail dead-ends at Puget Sound to the west and continues into the BB- Edmond Marsh Trail to the east. 

PLEASE NOTE: There are multiple trails that go off the main trail, including one that connects up the bluff with the DD- Wilkes Observatory Trail. The City of DuPont does not recommend use of these trails. These trails are not maintained by the city. Ground surrounding these trails is very unsteady and create an erosion risk. Use at your own risk. 

RAILROAD TRACKS: Walking on, along, or over active railroad tracks when not at a designated crossing is not only illegal, it may be pose serious risk. Do not do it. Learn more here at Operation Lifesaver : Rail Safety Education

TIDE INFORMATION: The beach is an enjoyable place to visit, but it can also be a risk on your safety. The City of DuPont does not own the land surrounding the beach and some areas are within Federal and private property. Access these areas at your own risk. If you intend to venture into these areas, please consult the NOAA Tide Chart. If you do not understand tide charts, it is not recommended that you venture beyond the beach area near the trail.
