trail locations for Olympia, Washington

beautiful and quiet in October. not too many people to populate the trail. careful of aggressive bikers though, got ran over for having my headphones in while walking.

easy short trail right near downtown Olympia. like to hike this one early in the morning. if you wait too long it will be too busy and crowded. Lots of little children as well so be aware if you are a dog walker. no bikers on this one since it is too short.

trail is super lumpy. Lots of boulders under some dust. hard on the feet and ankles but still a decent trail. slight elevation gain but nothing a healthy person couldn't handle. expect more motorized traffic than actual foot traffic.

Awesome display of west coast forest on mostly flat terrain.

there isn't much sign for trail and we got lost.

The trail is well maintained and fairly easy. The only annoyance was all the horse poop on the trail but it wasn't anything major. Dogs on leash are allowed which is nice, took an overweight three year old golden lab and he did great. This is a hike I would bring my somewhat older parents on.

small trail not much room to walk your dog and I wasn't really impressed

It is a beautiful place that shares a not so beautiful past and how nature prevails....

it's right downtown so if you're looking for a simple close to town walk this is good!

Beautiful on a sunny day
