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.

Beautiful park with lots of windy trails inside the Loop. One thing we found that is if you go off the loop without a compass or good since of direction, you will get twisted around a lot. I was raised in the woods and found myself confused at times as the unmarked trails twisted and switchbacked throughout the interior of the park. This made it very baffling and left us feeling like we just needed to press on. It would be nice if the trails were marked at least for exits. But great for a Hide-n-seek game.

loved this forest, lots of trails and not too hard at least the main trail. definitely could get lost in here if you take the smaller trails. also wouldn't feel safe walking alone. but it was stroller friendly which was a plus!

I will definitely go hike here again. It's a very easy trail with endless possibilities for distance, and perfect for smaller children. I highly recommenced GPS'ing your route though. The map at the trailhead is very inaccurate and trails are not marked well.

Lots of fun little trails to explore if you get off the main road! Easy terrain and mostly well cleared out.
