Now that spring is here, it’s time to get outside and get moving! Kitsap county is blessed with some of the most beautiful locales in the world, nestled as it is between the Pacific ocean and the lush green and spectacular mountains of Washington state! If you’re looking for some hikes that will help you appreciate the changing of the season, come to Kitsap for some of these awesome walks!
Full of various trails that are open to hikers, horseback riders, bicycles and more, Green Moutain State Forest is absolutely beloved by everyone lucky enough to live in Kitsap. The trails are well-kept, but it should be noted that it is quite hilly. On the plus side, that means you’ll have spectacular views on the end of your hike! On the down side, if you’re exploring with very young children you may have some sulky campers to contend with. Still, if you’re up for it this network of trails is well worth your time!
Okay, this one isn’t so much a “hike” as an INCREDIBLE sight! Located a short drive from town, Rocky Brooks Falls is a short walk into the woods that rewards you with a glimpse of a magnificent waterfall! Take a picnic and enjoy the rush of the water.
Located in Silverdale, Clear Creek Trail is a long walk with great trails! Perfect for walking your dog, this trail will take you across all sorts of varied terrain including forest and coastline and is so beautiful that anyone you run into on the trail will absolutely be smiling! Please appreciate that we’re sharing one of the area’s best-kept secrets with you here… try to keep it under your hat!
That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Book a room with the Best Western Plus Silverdale Beach Hotel and our friendly staff will be sure to direct you to their favorite spots on the peninsula!
