State Park Military Facility
Set on a high bluff overlooking the Puget Sound, Fort Worden State Park is home to beautiful scenery and a wealth of recreational activities. The park, which spans 176 hectares (434 acres), was once a U.S. Army base and features a number of historical military buildings here. The Coast Artillery Museum informs visitors about coastal military history, focusing particularly on Washington's Puget Sound. You can explore the park via its 27 km (17 mi) of hiking trails or 19 km (12 mi) of biking trails.
