Banner Forest Hiking and Equestrian Park is a beautiful 635-acre public open space in the Olalla area. The forest, which includes trees, ponds and wetlands, was acquired by Kitsap County in October 2000 after ten years of community effort to preserve this resource in its present state for all citizens in perpetuity. The trails are primarily used for hiking, equestrian riding, and mountain biking.

The main trail is not a loop, like the map makes it seem; i ended up having to walk an extra like along a road to get back to my car.

Good exercise, pretty easy terrain. I'm a photog so this trail didn't really offer me much to take pictures of.

I have been hiking and horseback riding several times at Banner, I've always had a great time. It's a great place to hike with a jogging stroller as well. plenty of room on the bigger main trails. Always enjoy going back.

Trails are great for full suspension but a little wrist jarring for rigid frames nice tight corners so get those brakes set right cause you will need them here
