We take our two dogs here to enjoy the hiking trails. The four of us enjoy the adventure of seeing new things and people on the trail whenever we go!

The park has nice trails that go down to a beach where one can explore the Puget Sound shore. The parking area is adequate most days... but sometimes on a sunny weekend it can be busy, especially in the summer. The trails are all clean and ramble through the woods. The open play areas for children and most picnics spots... More

Perfect day in Olympia if you love the outdoors. It was a little difficult to find the correct trail heads because lack of signs, but beautiful hike once we found it. I could have stayed all day.

We drove out to this site hoping for a beach walk. Path was hard to find. Park was sort of run down. No beach to walk on.

great looking park, however, the trail led to a large tree blocking the path & our grandkids came up next to a high cliff right past the tree, which would have been easy to slip down.

It is stated on the Olympia public park website that Priest Point has some steep trails. Go hiking and you will see that is very true. A well maintained park, right along the Sound, Priest Point has many trails that go through still standing old growth forests. For those with some disabilities or age issues, some of the trails will... More

This park is well placed on the Puget Sound. The walking trails are plentiful and the park is very well kept. I first thought this might be a State Park because of it's size . . but, it was developed and is maintained by the City of Olympia. A great place to spend your morning, take a walk or run... More

Great place to walk and explore. Pet and kid friendly. Watch your step on the trails as they can be quite slippery when wet.

took a day off work and hung out here for most of the day, lots of little trails to take you all around the sound, nice and quiet.
