The park loop offers 2.7 miles that feature beautiful wildflowers and is good for all skill levels. Accessible year-round and dogs are allowed, but must be kept on a leash. The forest, which includes trees, ponds and wetlands, was acquired by Kitsap County in October 2000 after ten years of community effort to preserve this resource in its present state for all citizens in perpetuity.
