Kid-friendly hikes on the Kitsap Peninsula

With two young children as my go-to hiking buddies, I’ve learned to appreciate short hikes that offer something unique. I always have along my repertoire of trail games (and snacks!) to support good moods, but when I can promise something special to spot or a new experience on the trail, the increased cooperation and enthusiasm make hiking an even better experience for everyone. These are my family's favorite hikes in Kitsap County on the Kitsap Peninsula. Each one offers that little something extra and is very kid-friendly.

A quick note: For any hike, we recommend checking current trail conditions with Washington Trails Association, and following safe hiking practices.

First hike: Foulweather Bluff
