Amazing! Plenty of trails to follow and pretty easy to do! I love hiking, I recently discovered my passion for it, so exploring new parks and trials is my thing. I went in here and I had so much fun, trails are nice and quiet, so much beauty and the smell of the trees is great. There's a lot of spider webs though which is not my favorite but if you go later on the day you won't find any spider webs on the way, since I usually go around at 6:30 am.
We drove from Seattle. 1 hour drive was more than worth it. Very well kept grounds and Owen beach had a boardwalk that went on for miles. We will for sure come back.

such a great place! Woodland trails right in the city. Sound views, cliffs, enormous western red cedars, Myrtle trees. Lots of wildlife. I have seen deer, coyotes, rabbits, raccoons, and lots more. Leave your music at home to experience the birds and nice periods of quiet. An easy but amazing experience for the whole family. And it is FREE!
