Public Trails

Rayonier’s timberlands contain many special and unique natural spaces, and Rayonier is happy to allow public access to several of these designated areas. As a general rule, permits and/or licenses are required for access to Rayonier land. Please visit www.rayonierhunting.com to determine whether a permit is available for the land you are interested in. However, permits are not required while on the following roads, trails, and/or lakes.

PORT GAMBLE TRAILS

The majority of the forestland south of Port Gamble part of Kitsap County’s Forest Heritage Park and is subject to the County’s regulations for access.  Part of the trail network extends onto Rayonier properties adjacent to the County Park. These trails are accessible to the public, for free, without a permit.

Signage at the access points may explain the requirements for that area. Rayonier does not provide recreational services, lifeguards, or any other improvements in these areas. We ask that the public respects our land and leaves it in the same or better condition than when they arrived. Rayonier may revoke public access in certain situations, such as misuse of the lands.
