lots to explore. can hike from the sound to hood canal.

good hike to get back into hiking

I parked my car at Norwegian Point park of seaside and went little way further to South Beaver Pond (Lower Hawk's Pond). That was a pleasant and easy walk. I will take my dog there next time.

No point unless it's whale watching season ;)

I came out here after talking to a local in Kingston and I was definitely in for a surprise when I sat down at the chilly beach and watched the horizon line.

So bummed there's not a video upload option on here but I managed to catch a video of a humpback surfacing! And a hand full of sea lions feeding on the salmon.

Great trail for our adventurous dog!

This greenway trail has a lot of hidden gems for those willing to take the time stop and experience it. This is not a sensory stimuli for the the citified numb looking for instant gratification.

This trail was a really enjoyable run. there are actual several branches of the trail. The trail was really well built for the wet conditions with a lot of grating on bridges and elevated walkways. Lower Hawk Pond had a beautiful view. Markers 17-18 were on a dirt road that happened to be quite muddy, but the rest of the trails were great. Plenty of room for horses and the trails were well marked. If you are accessing the trail from Buck Lake Park the trail entrance is on the far left with reference to the parking lot and is just beyond the native plant garden.

The map only shows about 1/2 of this trail. I don't think I have the permissions to edit it, though.
It should be noted that while the primary use is hiking, we also permit mountain bikes and, on some parts, horses.
I, along with the other volunteer trail stewards, regularly walk this trail to assess trail conditions, maintenance needs, and to get an idea of visitor use. We are all part of the Hansville Greenway Association.

This was my dogs favorite lake until he passed away. The loop trails are great for trail running, and taking children on nature walks. Lots of owls here. I take our photography club here quite often.
