“Local favorite - crazy beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

A cool little park so close to downtown Oly with an intense trail down to the Puget Sound. Please note that the trail, although paved, is quite a work with some serious ups & downs & not for anyone with health issues; but even just driving through one can see some views of the Puget Sound through the trees. Also used for serious athletic training by some people I've seen running the steep paved trails.

“Walking trail from East Bay drive down to the water.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

it's approx 1.3 miles on way. up and down so fairly strenuous in places. Not suitable for buggies. Well maintained trail and bridges that brings you done to Ellis cove and the shore. Mix of conifer and decidious wood -very open. Opel all year to dusk. Good parking.

“Beautiful park, great trails”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2011

I love Priest Point Park. I walk there often with my dog and with friends. There are great trails, and lots of solitude, generally. While dogs are not allowed off leash, it is generally tolerated. There are nice hidden trails on the backside away from the water too.

“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2011 via mobile

Lovely setting but run by rude incompetent people. A woman who claimed to be maintenance manager and smelled like booze accused me of walking my dog with no leash. Fair enough, but I don't own a dog. Trails are a wreck and grafitti is left on tables and trees for weeks at a time.
