Great trail for hiking across relatively level ground, could be good for a little bit of running as well. While on the trail you will encounter interesting historical forts. It is a good opportunity to take pictures.

Wonderful wide trail mostly thru dense forest, partly on rustic roads. Several beautiful views of Puget Sound. Interesting gunnery emplacements to explore. Signage very clear for trails as well as providing historic explanations of the fort. The whole park is very well done, clean and well maintained. We varied from the planned route to make it a bit longer. Great place to day hike.

Fun trail for people of varying abilities. Many cool sites of interest and breathtaking views of the water. Cleanest camp ground bathrooms I’ve ever seen.

I did this trail yesterday but went down the Calwell leg instead of toward the group site. There are a number of batteries to explore, some of them quite creepy but cool. I would recommend hiking when the ground has dried or if you have waterproof shoes. It was very muddy and wet.

The hike was very mild hike, but nothing special. Very nice scenery along with some very interesting history. I would recommend if looking for a casual stroll or wanting to just engage with history. The park is huge with a lot of parking and a lot of space for campers and RVs. I went during Labor Day weekend festivities and most were there for activities. The trail was quiet.

Excellent short day hike with my dog. Rained in the morning but started to clear up in the afternoon. The park was very clean and well maintained. Stopped at one of the park benches by the cliff to enjoy the view and to eat lunch. Also saw a lot of eagles, beautiful.

Fort Flagler has always been one of my personal favorite trails. History intermingles with natural beauty on this three mile trek, as you meander through wide open fields and through decommissioned WWII-era bunkers. Note: A Discovery Pass is required as this is a Washington State Park. For most, the trail begins in a modest corner of a forested campground by the beach and turns quickly uphill. Before long the trail opens to a sweeping meadow, framed by trees to the east and the gorgeous Port Townsend Bay to the west. Be wary on the cliffs, but do get close enough to take in the grandiose water views available here.

Ask for a map at the entrance booth. It gives a good synopsis of the hiking trail highlights. We took a stroll on the shoreline to do some birdwatching. Five minutes into it I spotted a very Manly bald eagle! Made the trip.

Windy = Bring a kite. Hot = Bring a swim suit and sun block. Cold = Bring fire wood. Site has a playground for kids and little store for forgotten items. Go hike to the Search Stations and Bunkers for additional fun. Mostly a RV camp spot but seen lots of tents. Recommend sharing the cost with friends and all camp (tent) it the same spot. Discovery Pass is recommended and will cost you $10 a person without it.
