Celebrate the new Sound To Olympics Trail Sakai Connector at a dedication and “trail mixer” event at 12 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 3. The trailhead is at the northwest corner of the High School Road/SR-305 intersection near the Chevron station.
The event is hosted by the City of Bainbridge Island, the Bainbridge Island Parks Foundation and the Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District. Light snacks will be served, including the Parks Foundation’s homemade “Because We Love Trail Mix.”
The Sakai Connector is the second Bainbridge Island leg of the Sound To Olympics Trail, a regional non-motorized trail that will link the Winslow ferry terminal with the Kitsap and Olympic peninsulas.
The short paved connector runs from the intersection north to Sakai Park, where it links up with trails in the park’s wooded lower bowl. Those trails lead through the park, around scenic Sakai Pond and up to Madison Avenue and the school campus.
