“A clear, paved path around Waughop Lake at Fort Steilacoom Park.”— Emily Roeben
Family Friendly Discovery trail, picnic shelters, wildlife, and an adjacent playground. Kids will enjoy the Labyrinth near the start of the trail.
Users will find a mostly flat, well-maintained trail to roam around the lake. There is a Labyrinth near the start of the trail as well as a historical path where you can find interesting historical facts.
Waughop Lake is at the western end of this expansive trail system; a system that roams through and around prairie lands, historical barns, trails, sports fields, a playground, radio-controlled aircraft area for hobbyists and an off-leash dog park. Connect this trail with others to tour the entire park.
Fore more information, visit the city's Fort Steilacoom Park website.
