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.

Nice trail to take children on. It's steep enough from 1/2 to 1 mile marker that it slows them down. Well maintained.

short little hike up hill along Twanoh Creek. Pleasant enough for a family hike especially if you are camping at the State Park near the trail head. Went on labor day 2015 and had the trail to ourselves

I was not impressed with this trail. There was no such view of anything at all, except trees. The terrain was poor. On the hike I noticed that there was no one else on the trail. The trail seemed very short and had many bushes growing over and on the trail (Poorly maintained). I would not recommend this trail.

Nice hike if you go right at the split and take the squiggly path up(you'll see on the map when ya get there. It is a quicker elevation gain that what the left side seemed on the way back. Wasn't very busy but it is right off a nice looking little camp ground so could imagine it getting busy from time to time.
