Fort Townsend Historical State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This 367-acre park sits above a 150-foot cliff, overlooking Port Townsend Bay, the islands of central Puget Sound, and the Cascade Mountains. The US Army fort, built in 1856 from hand-hewn logs and clamshell plaster, was established to protect settlers in the area from the American Indians.

This is a nice campground with 6.5 miles of hiking trails not well known outside the area. Biking is permitted on some trails. There is a good beach below the bluffs."
