Perkins Pond Nature Trail is a short walk (a little over a half mile loop) around a small lake in the city of Ocean Shores, Washington. Parking is available near the Cabana Park swimming pool, which is a short distance from the trail entrance. This loop trail is a level gravel path and is suitable for both young and old with several benches along the trail. Walkers and runners can increase mileage by doing several laps. On windy days, the trail provides more protection from the wind than the local Pacific Ocean beaches. Nature trail also provides opportunities for viewing wildlife and birdlife.

A lovely little walk around a pond. Ducks and geese swimming in the pond. It is a well maintained path with many benches to sit down along the way. It is extremely close to private houses, so the trail is literally just in front of people's yards, but in October the place was unbelievably quiet and overall the place feels kind of like a magic garden. The trail starts at the back of the Cabana Pool parking lot.
