Getting There

Easy to follow stroller and dog friendly trail. The trail passes by old train tracks and briefly through a tunnel just before ending at the beach. The trail starts out by leaving the parking lot from the police station and follows an old gravel road. The trail then turns to pavement for a short section before turning back to gravel.

The trailhead begins at Dupont City Hall. You are allowed to park in the massive parking area.

Take exit 118 off I-5 and head north on Center Drive. Follow Center drive for 1.2 Miles to Civic Drive and turn left(west). There will be a large parking lot on your right. Park here and find the paved trail leaving the parking lot on the north-east side.

My kids had a blast. More so at the end of the trail, looking for crabs at the creek. LOL!

Great trail- stroller friendly! Easily marked. I took my 1 year old and 5 year old and we navigated it easily.

This was perfect for a family trek. 12 and 8 year old handled it with no problem. And we all enjoyed the view and a chance to skip rocks along the rocky shoreline. Will definitely do again.

HikingGreat!

This trail is perfect for a morning or afternoon away from the house. Great wide trail that anyone should be able to navigate. The trail is mostly flat, even terrain with very little elevation change and roughly 3 miles out and back. The trail follows the Sequalitchew creek and opens up into the Nisqually Reach Aquatic Reserve. The waterfront of all river rock and is fairly easy to traverse on foot but not suitable for strollers. Parking is easy to get to and is a nice paved lot. My family and I went on a Sunday after lunch and the trail was quite busy with runners, runners with strollers, families and pets.

Nice clean trail, quiet, easy for my 2-year-old. She was very happy and loved throwing rocks into the water. Popular trail with lots of families and dogs. Two friendly cops were also enjoying (patrolling) the trail.

This was a fun, flat trail - perfect for us and our 7 yr old. Part of it is paved, but most of it has smaller rocks jutting out from the ground - so our tennis shoes were ok, but if I were to go back, I would wear hiking shoes. (That’s just me though because I’ve injured the bottom of my foot before in a rock and don’t want to do it again). The trail winds through a peaceful forest alongside a bubbling creek - very peaceful. The middle of the hike is the main attraction - puget sound. I would recommend bringing a backpacking chair and food, as it makes for a very beautiful spot for a snack and a rest before heading back. Looking for sea creatures and skipping rocks seems to be the thing to do. You will also want to bring water and a hat, as the woods can get a little warm and there may be ticks. It’s an easy enough hike though that you don’t really need to bring these things if you don’t have kids or dogs with you and are in good shape.

It was a nice day for a hike. Sunny mostly got a little sprinkle down by the water, but nothing under the trees. My husband might have misplaced our other vehicle keys. If anybody finds them, please let me know. Jed Wright 253-226-2453
