Great place to view wildlife... bring your binoculars to view all the different birds

We walked this trail on Monday. It was a clean trail with nice scenery, but darkness crept up on us and we ended up getting lost, so we had to go back the way we came. There are a lot of different marked trails so don’t be afraid to go off the trail marked by GPS. It’s definitely getting more and more muddy so be careful!

It was a beautiful fall walk through the woods! We explored through a couple unofficial trails, met some nice dogs, and generally enjoyed the fall colors! The main trail was well maintained and there wasn’t any trash around, so altogether good walking up, down and trough the hills.

One of my favorite places to go for great bird watching year-round.

Part of the trail was closed. But I will delve going back. My 7 & 6 year old boys loved it. They were amazed by a wood pecker and they didn’t want to leave. Great if you want to look for animals. Bring your binoculars

Very busy walk right in downtown Olympia. It’s good for going on a walk if you don’t want to or don’t have time to get into the woods. It’s a nice and clean trial, with views on Mt. Rainer and the capital building.

Good easy hike. paved nice green trail. Ends at the beach... Daughter loved all the little crabs

Beautiful park. The trails are great for running with some short, steep grades and lots of root hopping as well as great views with lots of shade and some sunny spots. Perfect place for a moderate trail run.

loved this trail! will be using it for training!

I was hoping to see a few spring flowers, but I guess it's too early. Trail is mostly flat. The loop back is rather steep. I'd recommend a walking stick.

Lots of fun to take the kids on. Part of the trail was closed due to construction. But, we still got to hang out by the creek and have a fun easy going morning. Not to busy on the trail, only saw a few people along the way.

very nice and relaxing walk, beautiful beach great first dogs that like to swim!

Part of the Olympia experience. Always a nice walk.

I really enjoyed doing this trail definitely empty your bladders before heading out and there is a portable potty out the as well as facilities to use the restroom. so much beauty surrounding you

If your looking to bike this is the place to go! For a hike not so much. Pretty much all biking trails, and you feel in the way. Not kid friendly! Almost got my child run over!

Great trail for all ages, shapes, and sizes. Great signage and mile markers. Scenery is calming. Destination on the bay worth the short walk.

I loved this trail. Easy and beautiful!

I went here yesterday and it is absolutly beautiful. I would definitely go again.

Easy ... yea right if you are a newbie prepare to work

Easy to get to. Straight trail. Nice to see the rocky beach. Not a fan of the straight hike, where it’s not a circle, I prefer circle hikes. The trees along the way are pretty and the terrain is mix of rock and cement. Easy for kids too!

very rewarding. cool historical info along the trail. awesome hike!

great trail for all ages just walked it with my 2 1/2 year old. beautiful scenery and a couple view benches along the way.

Love it here! Go early to avoid loud families that scare off the wildlife.
