Illahee Preserve Loop Trail is a 1.5 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Bremerton, Washington that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
Lots of shade on a hot summer day. Easy hills.
This map track is for Illahee Preserve, which is a separate park from Illahee State Campground and is maintained by Kitsap County. It is considerably longer than 1.5 miles if you do the entire loop. There are many cross trails marked by numbered trail markers. There are also multiple access points. Consult the park website for a detailed map of all trails, parking and entrances.
It is beautifully forested throughout and moderately hilly. Some of the trails are covered with mulched wood. The rest are bare dirt or fallen leaves and needles. Use caution when wet, as the hilly areas can be a bit slippery.
This is a great trail in all kinds of weather! Well groomed trails with direction choices to keep it interesting. You have short or long trail choices,
Awesome trails; great place to clear your mind after a long day of work.
I followed the directions and visited Illahee preserve trails, instead of going to state park.
Nice little up-hills and down-hills. Beautiful and quiet woods. When I was walking on Hall of Cedars loop, I felt I lost sight of trail a few times.
Directions are to Illahee Preserve. Very nice hilly paths through wooded area, peaceful and quiet. Noticed a sign posted after our walk about a dog attack on 5/3/16 where a dog and it's owner were hurt, the author stated they'd never had anything like that happen before.
It was a nice trail. It can be challenging to walk the trails after a fresh rain with layers of wet leaves on the ground because they are disgusting a lot of tree roots, careful they come out of nowhere right as you're admiring nature haha. There are stairs on some areas which I personally like because it forces you to mix up your workout a little and use muscles you normally wouldn't because the stairs aren't very even, beautiful scenery too.
Nice little climb from the beach.
