Nice walking and running trails

Nice walking and running trails through forested area next to Budd Bay. Trails do loop around a bit so you need to keep your bearings.

I have been coming here since I was a kid. It never disappoints. Beach access and lots of trails to explore. Great way to explore the surrounding areas of Olympia with their little hidden gems being their parks.

We've come here for years, first with our children and now with grandchildren. Nice trails thru the woods, nice shoreline area on Budd inlet with views of the capitol, and a great playground for the kids.

Beautiful park, well maintained, great place for a picnic. Not far out of town. Not commercial, good place for kids. The park is on both sides of the road, lots of parking.

My son had a blast here. Besides the beautiful walk through the woods to the beach, there were baby crabs to watch and catch all day!

I try to make it out to Priest point at least twice a month. Its a small park, but once your inside you'd never know it. The trails are fun, and easy, and the beaches are lovely for picnicking! Worth a visit!

Nestled in the heart of Olympia, Priest Point Park is both breathtakingly beautiful, and offers some of everything for everyone. It is pristine rainforest, with beautiful Puget Sound water front, and has lovely hiking trails and picnic areas. It's a must-see, must-do experience in Olympia!

Me and the family enjoyed the hikes but my daughter fell in love with the playground. Lots of different trails and the views from the beach are delightful.

Priest Point Park is a small park in the Olympia area. You can get down to the water here, but make sure you go when the tide is up. Otherwise, you'll see a lot of mud. It is a beautiful setting with nice trails...a good place to go for a brief getaway from the chaos of the world.
