You can't go wrong eating at Falls Terrace in Tumwater. The view is great, their menu had something for everyone and meals for $10.00 on up. Combine that with great service what else could you ask for?

Beautiful short trail (not really a hike but about 1/2 mile easy walk). Simple and shaded. Views of waterfalls and old Olympia Brewery. Educational panels. Nice park for a picnic. Apparently dog friendly since we saw a few!
