"Beaches and Forest Hiking" Dash Point State Park by glabah

Dash Point State Park Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 14 photos

NOTE: In July of 2011, Washington State Parks started charging a $10 day use fee, or $30 annual fee, for visiting a state park. See my Discover Pass tip for more information.

While the beach area at Dash Point State Park is fairly small, there are at least quite a number of hiking trails through the forest. Camping facilities are also available here, and while they are not close to Seattle they are quite a bit closer than many other state parks with camping facilities.

Become familiar with the call the Bald Eagle makes, as they are regular visitors to this park. You may not be able to see them very well as they like to stay in the tops of the trees near the beach, but you can certainly hear their odd high pitched horse whinney call coming from way up in the trees.

The beach here is fairly small, especially at high tide. The park is also extremely popular on summer weekends, and the huge parking lot near the beach attests to this. Therefore, it is best to avoid the place during the times that the weather is most agreeable to bringing large crowds here.

There are number of hiking trails that go through the park, as well as connect the park to various surrounding neighborhood streets.
