This is one of my favorite places! Love the trails and lookouts. Catching the sunset by the lighthouse/water is magical. On a clear day the beach offers beautiful Mt Rainer views. Going on a weekday evening, it use to feel like we had the entire park to ourselves. Good access to restrooms and parking. Coming from Indiana, I never could get over how tall the trees are and how tiny they make everything look in comparison.

It's a nice little path in the city to the beach

Absolutely amazing. A bit of everything. Even strenuous around the beach area. The views are great yes but the trees are really what did it for me.

Loop trail is a mixture of dirt, gravel and some asphalt and not technical. Small inclines/declines on the run. Enjoyed the forest and views. My biggest complaint is there are too many people and not enough trail etiquette.

This was a nice starter, conditioning trail. Though dog friendly, the beach is posted as no dogs allowed without a fine. Since I have a lab, this was disappointing. Still we all enjoyed the loop.

Fairly flat once you're on the loop trail. Some slight up/downs. You can make it more challenging by going down to the lighthouse or doing multiple loops. Easy to get lost your first couple times visiting if you don't pay attention to the signs directing you to the various trails at every fork in the road. Some forks aren't marked clearly, so still good to pay attention (look for others coming toward you to help choose the correct path). Still worth it, as you get some good western views of the Sound and Olympics.

Great scenic hiking for a beginner hiker. Went with my wife and daughter and they both had a excellent time.
