Great Hikes in Kitsap County for Kids - Point No Point

Point No Point Lighthouse, Park, and Trail

Point No Point County Park, Lighthouse, and Trail

During these warmer, summer months, the sandy shores of Long Beach and Cannon Beach are a bit of a haul from Kitsap County. If you’re looking for a sandy beach and hike closer to home, look no further than Point No Point.  

Point No Point is a wonderful family destination in Kitsap County. Located in Hansville, the park sits on three acres with a long, sandy beach, picnic areas, saltwater access, wetlands trail and its namesake lighthouse.  

My family and I recently enjoyed a quiet morning at Point No Point. My toddler loved running along the sandy beach, dipping his toes in the sound, collecting seashells and exploring driftwood forts. My husband even spotted a whale!  

A nice addition to the beach is a short hike up the wetlands trail.   

The Point No Point trail is a 1.49 mile walk that begins just beyond the lighthouse. The pathway runs perpendicular to the beach and takes visitors through protected wetlands, up a flight of stairs and through beautiful, shaded woods. The trail is fairly easy with sturdy terrain, however do anticipate a rapid elevation gain with the stairs. 

Leashed dogs are allowed but be mindful of the protected wetlands area.
