Fodor's Expert Review Priest Point Park
Olympia Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge
This leafy 314-acre tract is a beautiful section of protected shoreline and wetlands. Thick swaths of forest and glistening bay views are the main attractions, with picnic areas and playgrounds filling in the open spaces. The 3-mile Ellis Cove Trail, with interpretive stations, bridges, and nature settings, runs right through the Priest Point Park area and around the Olympia coast.
