stinky.. that's all I have to say, it would have been a great hanging out place without that awful smell. I'm not coming back again.

The smell was really strong and couldn't stay long there. If you walk more to the right side if the sea allows you it's a little better.

went here on 07/26/20, the water treatment center smell made this a horrible place to visit. Even with my mask on, I was gagging. also, this is not lightly trafficked. the parking lot was full and people were parked along the road going down the hill to it.

This gorgeous trail has a bridge that goes over the train tracks. It would be amazing to be able to stand on the bridge while a train passed. The walking areas are all spanning along the coast of the area. It’s very sunny and covered in beautiful purple clam shells. There’s very little space to explore but what there is, is gorgeous.

it's a great place to take the kids on a nice day. I wouldn't call it a hike at all but absolutely beautiful!!!!

Beautiful place! Great if you’d like to get out and enjoy PNW nature, but not tire yourself out with a long hike. Right off the Puget Sound. We saw several sea otters - definitely the highlight for me! I plan to have picnics here with my family sometime when the weather is nice.

Thought there would be hiking since I found it on this app, but just a beach. With that said, it's a nice beach with great views. Train kind of ruins the relaxation, but glad I found it! Will be back before leaving Washington.
