An easy, pretty hike. There are 2 sides to this park. The Priest Point side takes the hike through woods of western red cedars, hemlocks, big leaf maps and sword ferns. Cross the bridge over the street and follow the signs to the beach and you are on the Puget sounds with views of the marina and capital. I did not hike the trail on the water side (Ellis Creek), that will be another day. A very nice hike indeed!

Nice and short beautiful walk. In the evening my husband and I decided to go for a "walk" this was our pick.

The trail is easily noticed, later on during the evening the shore began to rise. We had to climb over a tree to get back on trail because of the water rise.

As the directions at the beginning of the trail mentions (water will rise above shore.)
