Pack a sandwich, a field guide (if you have one) and meet us for an evening trail walk at Point Defiance!
We will meet at the Gig Harbor viewpoint Parking lot and walk the perimeter trail (marked with a square in the park trail maps) along the west side of the park toward Fort Nisqually, returning to the start of the trail to picnic together overlooking the water. Be sure to bring water, wear supportive footwear and pack a camera, as the trail itself is lovely and sightings of eagles, deer, and raccoons are possible!

We will plan to walk about .75 miles along the trail and then return, making for about a 1.5 mile walk. This is an appropriate walk for kids and leashed pets.

Note: We will plan to stay together as a group and walk at the pace of the slowest person. For those who would like to participate but don’t feel up for the walk, please feel free to join us for the picnic portion only. We’ll aim to be back at the picnic area around 6:45-7:00.
