Priest Point is a 1.6 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Olympia, WA that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and trail running and is accessible from March until October. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

Definitely wouldn't call this "easy", maybe it's because I'm a Midwesterner, but running up and down the wet, wooden, uneven stairs on the switchbacks of the inlet can feel a bit more moderate. That being said, absolutely lovely views and interesting paths. Don't bring grandma on the route that involves switchbacks, but do bring kids - it'll tire the heck out of them if they're obedient enough to not fall down the sides of the trail.
Short and fun! Beautiful views and lots of greenery! will definitely go again! perfect for dogs and children!
This is a nice hike, pet friendly. The view is nice and it wasn't very crowded when I went.
Great trail for kids and dogs.
Nice walk for kids and dogs. Pretty garden area. Trails on both sides of the park. Playground for kids. Picnic areas with covered kitchen areas, built in BBQ pits, and picnic tables. Fairly easy access to the beach, however, the beach isn't sandy, it's rocks and mud. Also, the water in that area of the Puget Sound is considered to be very polluted and it is recommended that you wash/bath after exposure to the beach and water.
It was a good walk. but part of the trail was closed. Will try it out again
Weather was perfect. Some slippery spots but that's tbe. Would recommend this trail to beginners and experienced hikers, it's too beautiful to pass up!
Easy loop but sadly Ellis Cove had washed out so most of the trail was closed on our visit. Would be a good place for kids.
So muddy and the trail was way too tiny for the digs and wagon. I'd say great for older kids but not so much the little ones!
love this place! never gets old just roaming and exploring both on and off trails
great for strollers there is an amazing cave under a tree looking onto the sound. easy for all enjoy
loved the trails and the beaches. only thing I didn't like was how trails were marked closed or blocked off but there was no warning on the maps or anything.
Beautiful, moderate traffic.
