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 trail is well signed and easy to follow. You also get to walk through a tunnel before you reach the beach.

Tried this trail on a whim with my friend. It was clean, clearly marked, and we saw maybe five other people. Very peaceful and relaxing. Great views at the end! My friend has knee issues and was able to walk the trail without difficulty.

This is the perfect trail to get away from civilization while you're still in civilization. It's hidden behind the DuPont fire department and the Creekside Village apartments. You start off on a paved road but turns into a very well developed dirt trail. This trail is probably more than 5 feet wide, I've seen strollers, bikes, runners, children, and dogs on this trail. There is a steady decline along the Creek that leads you under railroad tracks. Just under the bridge you come out to an opening and are greeted by the beautiful of the Puget Sound. The trail continues to the right and opens up on a rocky beach. You can climb up the hill to the railroad tracks and if tide is low you can walk along the rocks to the left to what looks like a ship wreck but is some kind of cement structure. There are a few places along the trail where you can make your way down toward the Creek. If you can find it, there is also a a way to climb down to a bridge that leads to the other side of the Creek to a switchback that leads you to the top of the hill on the other side. This connects to other trails in DuPont. I've never been annoyed by any bugs on this trail and I've gone numerous times at all times of the year and day. The trail is never over crowded and it is well maintained. The trail is about 1.5 miles one way and it is a down and back. Whenever I need to get away from it all but don't have time to drive far, I just go to this trail since it is in my backyard and I forget civilization is right around the corner.

Nice out and back. It's a slow downhill grade all the way to the water so uphill on the way back but not too bad.
