Fort Worden State Park was beautiful today with five eagles flying overhead and Mt. Baker and the San Juan Islands as clear as can be! Sunny and cold!

The trail in all trails is convoluted. Best to just explore. Beautiful views.

HikingGreat!

Great fun on this walk with 8 yr old twins. Easy walk and plenty of parking and space to social distance. Played on the ramparts/fort. Collected some sea glass on Glass Beach. Very relaxing.

Beautiful historical trail. We had so much fun exploring the lighthouse, castles, forts and the beach. Glass hunting at Glass Beach made the whole trail more exciting.

HikingOver grown

the trail was over grown by the beach but the area by the light house had a cool otter that kept coming out of the rocks and found some cool sea glass on the beach. trail wasn't my favorite but the beach and view from the light house was well worth the trip.

Had so much fun exploring the old bunkers and lighthouse. Park is open but signs reading ‘crowded parks lead to closed parks’ are posted regularly throughout the parking lots. I arrived around noon and there was still plenty of parking and open areas where social distancing could be observed. Lots of people but I didn’t have a problem keeping myself distanced appropriately. Beautiful terrain full of history. Lovely place to take kids to do some learning while enjoying the water and beautiful views.

Trail takes you through the old military buildings, on a couple wooded trails, by bunkers, and out to the lighthouse on the beach. Nice variety!

Fort Worden offers good biking/hiking trails. Nothing technical with healthy elevation climbs as well as fun inclines with beautiful scenery and views.

A pleasant, easy walk on the beach leading to the lighthouse. A good place to kayak and sail. Discover Pass needed to park.

Great trail. pretty easy, but a little challenge in some areas for those not great with hills or stairs. lots of choices as to where you want to go. would definitely do this one again.

the best part was happening upon Memory's Vault, an amazing complementary memorial to peace alongside the bunkers FROM late 19th Century and WWI. Memory's Vault is a stunning poetic art installation

First to Review

Fun family hike. We took the beach on the way back instead of taking the lower trail back. Easy and fun for all skill levels, the bunkers are very cool and historical.
