Point Defiance Park: Owen Beach–Boathouse–Japanese Garden Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This loop encompasses several of Point Defiance Park’s best features in one relatively short hike: a popular beach, a shoreline promenade, the boathouse (a pleasure boater’s hub in Tacoma), a formal Japanese garden, and a fern- and moss-draped forest of giant maples.

This route intersects the trailhead for the route described in the Point Defiance Spine–Outer Loop–Inner Loop route, so the ambitious hiker wishing to spend an additional few hours on the trail can easily combine the two hikes."
