Surprised to see a cougar on this family trail near so many homes. Sunday January 10, 2021. Be cautious, especially if you have little ones with you like we did! We walked by and didn’t see it crouching right off the path. The person 40ft behind us saw it and exclaimed! We all hustled out of there!

A nice little walk in the middle of OS on a Monday morning. Lots of native habitat with a couple old growth trees, and mostly second generation trees. Very beautiful. Beware of wildlife, including bears.

Flat loop through shaded woods. Shaded and quiet, very few other visitors

Great easy trail to do with kids. The trail has multiple closed off areas but there are signs for reroute. Overall fun place to take the kids and do some exploring.

Short trail that felt more like a woodland area. Easily accessible for kids.

This is a beautiful little trail. The ground underneath your feet feels like almost spongy. It’s a very easy trail to do but the Mas around is spectacular to look at. Today was 60° and no wind. Not even a coat. :-)

This is a beautiful trail that I introduce everyone to that visits me in Ocean Shores. The lake, the trees, and the occasional deer can create a mindful stroll or get people new to hiking excited about it. if you are in Ocean Shores I strongly encourage taking a walk in Weatherwax.

Did this trail with my sister and 1 year old niece. My niece absolutely loved it! The trail is beautiful. We even saw a deer! This was our first trail and it inspired us to start doing trails all over together!

Easy trail. Wish it was longer, but nice for a quick hike through the area. You get a good sense of the forest landscape before Ocean Shores was developed.

I love this trail and did it multiple times on a recent trip. It can be a loop or an out-and-back depending on the route you take. So peaceful, lots of birds, have seen deer!

I like this trail very much. I hiked it multiple times because it's so close to my house. It's perfect for a relaxing walk.
