Let's Meet and Walk at Point Defiance Park

  • to
  • Point Defiance Park

    5400 N. Pearl St., Tacoma, WA (map)

    47.306735 -122.519081

  • Take N. 30th St. to Pearl. Turn right on Pearl. We will meet in that parking lot just past the entrance to the park.

    Take N. 30th St. up to Pearl. Turn right on Pearl and enter park. We will enter Point Defiance Park at the Pearl St. entrance.. Please park in that main parking lot, and once we are all there, we will drive up into the park, stop at a trailhead, and walk 30 minutes down a trail, then turn around and walk 30 minutes back to our cars. Should be about a 3-mile hike. Kathy is in a white Ford Explorer Sport Trac truck with a black truck bed cover and large bold black squid logo on the hood, and Kelly is in a brown Buick Encore.

    As the largest urban park in Pierce County, the network of roads and trails weaving through the forest preserve provides a quiet retreat for joggers, cyclists, and hikers. 

    There are many hiking trails along Point Defiance's cliffs that have sweeping views of Vashon Island, Dalco Passage, Gig Harbor, and the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. The road network also passes by Fort Nisqually.
