Saltwater State Park is a day use park featuring 1,445 feet of saltwater shoreline on Puget Sound. The park is located halfway between the cities of Tacoma and Seattle. The cities jointly and literally buried a hatchet in the park as a symbol of an end to their mutual competition. The park offers beautiful views and wildlife-watching opportunities.

I've been going to this park for years but today was the first time I did this loop. the trail was clean and maintained. it has a few areas that are rather steep but doable. a few other folks on the trail but not crowded at all.

Nice hike with the family. Wife and I had kids on the back and 4 in toe. Quick, easy hike and fun on the beach. The airplanes were a little noisy passing overhead. Other than that, great family friendly hike!

really easy, construction disrupted the quiet

6/24/2017 (Saturday) - The loop in the woods is short, easy, but pleasant and cool. Its middle point is the campground, which is full at this summer weekend, but the trail is very lightly used. The beach is a good place for an easy walk with lots of picnic tables. This is a state park, so requires "Discover Pass". A fine summer dusk must be very crowded, because its a good place to enjoy sunset. Note: AllTrails does not display this for "Explore"
