Beautiful short trail. Simple. Views of waterfalls and old Olympia Brewery. Very shaded.

This is a very easy trail to follow woth beautiful views of Tumwater Falls. It's a quick in & out, with a couple of bridges. Pathes are gravel, so watch your footing. It also has a cool park for a picnic. Dog friendly.

Pretty views of the waterfall after it rains... but I wouldn't call this a "trail."

I wouldn't call this a hike, more of a walk, but I love this place all the same. It's a fun place to bring the family. Great for younger kids and you could even bring a stroller. There are a few large steps (as is wide, with lots of space between each rise) on one side down to the bridge, but a stroller can manage them. We love coming here in the fall, usually early September, to watch the salmon run.
