Twanoh State Park, situated on the shoreline of Hood Canal, features one of the warmest saltwater beaches in Washington state. This is because Hood Canal is one of the warmest saltwater bodies in Puget Sound. The 182-acre marine, camping park has 3,167 feet of saltwater shoreline. The name of the park derives from the Native American Twana tribes, better known as the Skokomish, who made their home in the area.

It was beautiful. Not many others on the trail. It started to snow a bit. lots of dead salmon in the creek, that was sad and stinky at the end.

The best part was watching the Salmon go upstream. The trail along the river was nice.

Easy hike that's perfect for a senior dog. It was extremely peaceful and quiet on the trail, just saw about 4 other parties while we were there. One thing that is left out of the description is the ending descent (which lasts for about 10 minutes) is pretty steep, with loosely packed gravel. It makes it pretty slippery to walk on and in fact, my friend did slide and fall when she tried to stop my dog from going after a squirrel.

I would recommend that you do the hike backwards and start off the with the steep hill, instead of ending with it. So instead of taking the designated trail head, use the access road entrance, which is directly off of the parking lot. Afterwards, we crossed the street and checked out all the people digging for clams and oysters.

This is a nice walk. Not really a hike but the trail is well maintained and it's a nice hour or so spent in the woods. Not much in the ways of views but it's really pretty forest nonetheless. Good for an easy wintertime walk or a mild simmer stroll.
