I wanted to get right into the wilderness of Washington and this park was a great first step. Wonderful paths to walk and you quickly escape the city. Very close to Olympia as well! Check it out!

The park has a large pavilion for family picnics. It is well-maintained with plenty of room for large groups or multiple families. The trails were hilly but not difficult. There aren't many signs but as the trails aren't long, at some point a hiker will...More
