this is now my favorite 3 mile loop between here and Seattle. they have a dog park which helped my puppy burn off a lot of energy before trying this loop. it was raining and cold but there were still folks on the path. I'm coming back again when it's better weather to take photos as well.

This trail winds around Chambers Bay Golf Course. Access is easy, with several possible starting points. It is a loop, just over 3 miles around. The trail is a paved path, wide throughout, and with resting points and vistas along the way. Near the top of the trail is a playground with easy access to restrooms and a water fountain, so it's suitable for younger children.

There are stretches of fairly steep climbing, but they are of short duration, and with the trail being asphalt it isn't treacherous. At a relatively easy pace it takes about an hour. It's dog friendly, with many garbage cans to dispose of poop, and dog doo bags in dispensers. This trail is also suitable for running, if you're so inclined.

It isn't particularly scenic, but for it being so close to Tacoma it's a nice trail, with good elevation gain and of sufficient length so as to get you a decent walk in without having to do multiple laps.

Beautiful views, this trail combined with the grand view trail to make it just over 5 miles.

I ran here the other day and while it's a great natural forest setting it is not well maintained. There are numerous off trail paths where people just hang out. My car was broken into while I was there and though many people saw my vehicle being vandalized no one so much as asked them what the hell they were doing. no one , despite having seen the perps could provide any information to the police. Bottom line it's not safe. Venture elsewhere.

Great place for couples, families or just by yourself. Beautiful scenery.

Amazing place for a run, walk, hike, flying a kite or having a picnic!
