    Directions to Trailhead

    The Southwest County Olympic Short Trail is a-you guessed it-short walk. This trail is easy and less than a mile long, with mostly flat footing. It’s so quick that you can loop it a few times for a longer trip, or just do it once to get the kids or dogs outside. The trail isn’t very well-marked, so consider downloading a GPS track ahead of time. Expect moderate traffic.
