Always a great hike, definitely one of my fave spots. We take the Fort Ward main trail to the end & keep going thru NE South Beach Drive with a gorgeous view across the sound of Mount Rainier. Then we ascend "the hill" Toe Jam Hill Rd NE, take that to the end and walk towards Port Blakely where we enter the woods trail back towards Fort Ward. 5 mile amazing walk/hike every single time.

nice walk around Bainbridge island

Hiked the West Shore trail with my 4 year old son today. Nice little walk! Plenty of parking, though we went on a drizzly, grey day after Christmas. Very easy walk for adults, with a little incline on the way back up. Challenging for my toddler, but now he will nap great. (;

Great trails that are clearly marked so you can wander without fear of getting lost. Trails are wide, and in most places are packed very flat and evenly. Good for walking, running, mountain biking. Only downside is you can hear lots of road traffic from Miller Road.

I hiked the Westwood Shore Trail, next time I will take the trail to the lake, so many possibilities! I ran into to some nice people along the trail! There was a good windy climb down to the beach, but it was worth it!

Stumbled across this trail on my way home while feeling a bit grumpy, and this trail turned my day right around. Definitely feels like you get transported to another place in those woods.

This is an amazingly beautiful place. lots of surprises!

Great shoreline trail rambles through woods and ferns, then plunges to stony shores with great sunsets and view of channel.

It appears not as many people know of the shoreline trail (stay right) but it is much more challenging (not hard, though) then the rest of the trails at Gazzam.

Nice cityside walk. This isn't "the wilderness" so don't expect the prisrine beyond of Port Townsend but still very quaint and pretty.

Peaceful and very scenic

I enjoyed all of the hydrangea and blackberries and harbor views during our visit in June. Nice stroll after eating.

Huge giant trees tower over a verdent moss covered landscape.

Easy tree-lined main trail, leading onto other trails. Fairly quiet. Not that too many people on it.

Peaceful

Great hike for beginners. We did this one on a Sunday afternoon when we needed to get out the house and didn’t feel like doing anything too crazy.

I just completed the East Grand FOREST LOOP.

My local go to for hiking and jogging. Multiple side trails that link back into trail or extend it to other destinations (Pete's trail, Close trail).

Easy walking, nice bridges across creeks, and a few secluded places to stop and picnic.

We hiked the secondary trail, Westwood Shore, down to the beach. Fun hike, my eleven year old completed with ease. Steep switchbacks down to the beach.
