A 7-mile natural surface trail and a one-mile loop wind through this park in Lakewood.
At 340 acres, Fort Steilacoom Park is the largest park in Lakewood and provides a diverse mix of active and passive recreation. It features an expansive and scenic trail system traversing through woods and hills, looping around Waughop Lake, connecting to the Pierce College campus, and offering impressive views of the Puget Sound and Western State Hospital. This regional park has four developed baseball fields. The park also offers a number of partially developed softball and soccer fields and some playground equipment.

    One of my new local trails... I had fun for what the trail is. Could definitely use some love from a local group or bike shop to add some trail markings or create a map but there is good potential for fun here if you're just looking to get out after work and get a quick 5 - 10 miles in.

    There are numerous trails all the way around the lake. There was some construction at the top of the hill near a school or something. There is a long descent to pick up some speed and launch into an open grass area. I haven't been there in a while, but it was a fun ride. The trails are pretty clean from people walking their dogs. I have seen the occasional horse as well. Be courteous of the walkers and their animals. Slow down when any people are near by and be respectful, clean up after yourself.
