The tide was out so we could walk out into the water and see thousands of sand dollars and little crabs and lots of little sea creatures!! Beautiful scenery. Requires a Discovery Pass.

Not everyone has easy access to the Salish Sea/Puget Sound. But Tolmie State Park provides incredible views, a beach that adjusts its size with the tide--but my personal favorite is the Seven Cedars' Trail. A novice hiker gets to walk about 2 miles with enough...More

A nice quiet place to walk the trails and enjoy the views. We went at low tide and it was so nice to see the plant and animal life...and enjoy casual strolls. It's nothing exciting, but very nice to spend some calm time looking at...More

I never miss a chance to visit and explore the wonders of tidal sea life!! Be sure to bring your camera, oyster shucking gear and clam digging gear, along with water shoes!

A small park but worth the stop. Very nice beach with great views. Numerous trails through the woods. When we visited only one other person was there. Very peaceful and great place to relax
