Illahee State Park is a 75-acre marine camping park with 1,785 feet of saltwater frontage on Port Orchard Bay. "Illahee" means "earth" or "country" in the Indian tradition, and views of Puget Sound from the Illahee beach give the viewer a sense of what that word meant to native people. The park has plenty of parking space, lots of fresh air, facilities for a number of outdoor activities and access to a variety of water sports.

We hiked the secondary trail, Westwood Shore, down to the beach. Fun hike, my eleven year old completed with ease. Steep switchbacks down to the beach.

Nice trail on Bainbridge Island with beach access.

Absolutely beautiful trail! Little traffic and sometimes you can pet a horse!

Walked this trail looking for photo opportunities. Very scenic! Parts of it are moderate and NOT easy. I enjoyed it.

Take the trail to the water on the first left! The beach is isolated and quiet -- such a rewarding scene. Beware of the slope on the way back!
