Pet Friendly Hikes on Kitsap Peninsula

October 7, 2023
Published by

ne of the great things about having a dog is going for a long walk or hike, where you both get to enjoy the great outdoors. You can enjoy the scenery, and your pet is sure to enjoy all of the rich smells of nature. Fortunately, if you live in one of our new homes in Bremerton WA, you’ll find that there are a number of great places to hike on Kitsap Peninsula.

Whether you have a dog or a horse – or a cat who doesn’t mind a leash – the family owned Ueland Tree Farm is right there in Bremerton and is an ideal place for non-motorized adventures. This natural habitat covers 2,300 acres of tree farm and hiking and biking trails. Year-round, you can take your dog for a great long walk, or even go horseback riding. There are plenty of options for trail lengths with Dickerson Falls being an easy 1.75-mile roundtrip hike from the Lebers Lane Trailhead.

Accessibility matters and the Scenic Beach State Park on Hood Canal offers ADA-compliant trails. You and your pet will enjoy the huge trees, aromatic shore walks, native rhododendrons, and fantastic views of Olympic Mountain.

Logging has been a big industry in this region, and places that used to be logging roads are now being turned into parks with second-growth forests. A great example is North Kitsap Heritage Park that features 10 miles of old roads, as well as volunteer-built trails that are ideal for dogs, horses, and kids. Many of the trails loop through the new forests and include boardwalks and color-coded signposts to help you navigate this volunteer-maintained system of trails. 

If you and your pet enjoy walks along the water, head to the Point No Point Lighthouse Park. The lighthouse, built in 1879, is one of the oldest on Puget Sound. Along with beaches and low dunes, the park also features an old-growth forest, as well as fantastic views of Mount Rainier and Mount Baker.

If you want the convenience of an urban trail on the Kitsap Peninsula, the Clear Creek Trail is a wonderful choice. This 8-mile trail is the oldest and best urban trail and was built in sections as land became available. Built and maintained by volunteers, the trail runs through both public and private land. Despite being right in the middle of a developed urban area, you’ll enjoy remnant forests and even views of a salmon-bearing creek from observation decks along the route.

These are just a few of the many pet-friendly places to get out and enjoy the great outdoors, even as the weather turns a bit cooler. If you purchase one of our new homes in Bremerton WA, you’ll never be short of fantastic trails and hiking routes to enjoy with your favorite four-legged friend.
