Goose Rock Trail, a fairly short hike at .5 to 3 miles depending on how you navigate the rock, offers both the moderately challenging summit along with the perimeter of the rock that views beautiful Puget Sound.

A quick and easy trail with a satisfying view at the end. I wish there weren't telephone lines at the top though.

Started the hike from West Beach, on the other side of the freeway. Discover Pass needed. Weather overcast. Low tide for the beach. Started out on the trail from West Beach to North beach, ended up on the beach. With the low tide able to walk all the way to North Beach. Headed up to the bridge and walked under to the other side. Very little elevation gain from the bridge to some switchbacks. A few spurs for good viewpoints to the sound. First set of switchbacks went downhill then started up the trail to the summit. Beautiful view from the top. Stopped to watch the jets flying by when we were part way up. Nice area at the summit to stop and enjoy the view and have a snack. Looped back to the bridge, up the stairs and across the bridge to the other side. Beautiful views. Not too many people on the trail. But be careful on the bridge. Lots of people on a narrow sidewalk.

Perimeter trail is pretty. All the uphill is in the last half-hour. Nice view from the top, but traffic noise the entire way.

Trail was fine, in good condition. I'd say it was on the easier side with pretty viewpoints. If you're looking for a remote beach take the perimeter trail

The south side with the switchbacks is quite difficult for an older inexperienced hiker like me, but without that being noted on the trail map I didn't know not to take it. Should have known by the switchbacks. It was exhausting on a hot day. Glad I had lots of water. It was beautiful at the top. Got a bit lost on the perimeter trail on the way back. Needs better signage at certain points. Happy 100th to the National Park System.

Pretty easy couple mile hike with some great views. We continued hiking under the bridge, down and around the beach passing cranberry lake. Pretty easy overall for even the novice hikers in our party.
