it would be better to grab a map at the main entrance, and use it as a reference along with the app. the park is cleaned up with nice trails. I ran into some friendly people on the trail.

This trial is pretty cool. I did find myself doing small circles within the actual trail, but overall it was a great hike.

Good trail to run for beginners since it's the ground is level pretty much all the way through. There isn't much to see and if you aren't familiar with the trail it could get easy to get lost as well. I recommend that if you are afraid of dogs, don't come to this park because even though they have signs that tell the owners it is prohibited to let your dog of the leash ... they still do it. I know because I had only been on the trail for all of ten minutes and saw two dogs who were unattended... very friendly dogs I might add but unattended. It's also fairly close to the bad part of town so if you bring your car , make sure you don't leave anything that is of value visibly inside ( avoiding any break in's) ... well hopefully this helped :)

Careful - the pictures are confusing. Illahee Hertage preserve is not Illahee state park. The Preserve is behind Fred Meyers off hwy 303. Best hiking there.

Lots of shade on a hot summer day. Easy hills.

This map track is for Illahee Preserve, which is a separate park from Illahee State Campground and is maintained by Kitsap County. It is considerably longer than 1.5 miles if you do the entire loop. There are many cross trails marked by numbered trail markers. There are also multiple access points. Consult the park website for a detailed map of all trails, parking and entrances.

It is beautifully forested throughout and moderately hilly. Some of the trails are covered with mulched wood. The rest are bare dirt or fallen leaves and needles. Use caution when wet, as the hilly areas can be a bit slippery.

This is a great trail in all kinds of weather! Well groomed trails with direction choices to keep it interesting. You have short or long trail choices,

I followed the directions and visited Illahee preserve trails, instead of going to state park.
Nice little up-hills and down-hills. Beautiful and quiet woods. When I was walking on Hall of Cedars loop, I felt I lost sight of trail a few times.

Directions are to Illahee Preserve. Very nice hilly paths through wooded area, peaceful and quiet. Noticed a sign posted after our walk about a dog attack on 5/3/16 where a dog and it's owner were hurt, the author stated they'd never had anything like that happen before.

It was a nice trail. It can be challenging to walk the trails after a fresh rain with layers of wet leaves on the ground because they are disgusting a lot of tree roots, careful they come out of nowhere right as you're admiring nature haha. There are stairs on some areas which I personally like because it forces you to mix up your workout a little and use muscles you normally wouldn't because the stairs aren't very even, beautiful scenery too.

More like a walk. Beautiful. We used to walk our dogs through there. I think it be great for sunny/partly cloudy. Crowds weren't a problem. Pretty easy.

This is a quaint little walk. Nothing that could be considered a hike, although there are some pretty woods interspersed with the main road. Also...the welcoming cannons are awesome!
