Harper Park Trail is a 1.5 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Port Orchard, WA that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from February until October. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
This is an easy flat trail with a rickety old yet safe bridge. Several small trails branch off of the main trail. There are benches and a picnic table along the trail.
Interesting history of this site. Several little trails around this area. Watch out for poison ivy along the trails. Nice little creek running through the area, and it is a beautiful wooded area.
For being a short little local trail, we thought it was great! Not exactly sure which of the trails is the actual trail. When you come to the rickety bridge, we first continued straight. There was one area where we had a hard time seeing where the trail went and assumed it was a dead end instead of a loop. On our way back to the car, we decided to take a different trail. We went up the trail that would have been right before the bridge when coming from the parking lot. This is the route I would actually recommend taking. It has a small steady hill, then crosses over a road and continues on the other side. There was still a lot more we could have explored, but we looped back because it was getting late. Extra bonus for my kids, there's a fun geocache along this trail!
Great trail for a quick getaway. Went earlier this week when it was nice out, very flooded and marshy with lots of ivy and sting nettle covering the trails. Not much of a hike in distance but if you like to trail run/mountain bike this trail offers a good amount of fun.
not stroller friendly. seemed to us like the hang out for local drug users. saw about 4 that were no doubt back in the woods doing drugs.
