Located in Federal Way between Seattle and Tacoma in the Puget Sound, this park is a popular destination for hiking, biking, kayaking, fishing and recreational beach activities. Beach explorers can find starfish, crabs, birds and raptors. This 398-acre camping park features 3,301 feet of saltwater shoreline. The beach provides unobstructed views of the Puget Sound and opportunities for sea-life study. This loop is a great day hike on well maintained trails. There are several trail options (many quite short) but almost all crossroads are clearly marked with the trail names. A Discover Pass is required for vehicle access to state parks and recreation lands managed by the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), and the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR). One pass can be transferred between two vehicles. The fees are as follows (Add $5 transaction/dealer fees at WDFW dealer locations): Annual pass: $30 One-day pass: $10

I refuse to pay $10 to park to use the trails and I'm not going to get a $100 ticket Washington has the most dumb Park system and these kinds of things should be abolished

Good place to take your dogs and to go for a stroll. This place is very close and convenient in my residential area for a short hike with the feeling of "nature". Though, not a place to "get away".
