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.

I hiked the Westwood Shore Trail, next time I will take the trail to the lake, so many possibilities! I ran into to some nice people along the trail! There was a good windy climb down to the beach, but it was worth it!

Great shoreline trail rambles through woods and ferns, then plunges to stony shores with great sunsets and view of channel.

It appears not as many people know of the shoreline trail (stay right) but it is much more challenging (not hard, though) then the rest of the trails at Gazzam.

Easy tree-lined main trail, leading onto other trails. Fairly quiet. Not that too many people on it.

My local go to for hiking and jogging. Multiple side trails that link back into trail or extend it to other destinations (Pete's trail, Close trail).

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.

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!

Finding the trailhead was a challenge. This is the address on the sign and has a good gps fix: 6105 NE Marshall Rd, Bainbridge Island, WA. This trail offers a main and secondary options. The secondary trail leading to the beach is less than a mile but very steep. My wife, puppy and I managed this with ease. Great short hike.

There are two trails here a main trail that is a loop and the close trail that is an out and back. The close trail is about a mile and takes you down to a rocky beach. The trail has some switch backs and gets steep at the end by the beach.
