Dog Walking in Gig Harbor

Looking to enjoy the waterways, evergreen forests, and wildlife of Washington with your four-legged friend? Gig Harbor is the perfect place, with close access to many different hikes and parks.

Gig Harbor’s unique dog park is called the McCormick Forest Off-Leash Area. It’s special because it utilizes fenced-in nature trails, meaning that you can let your pooch off-leash on the paths without worrying that Fido might try to make an escape! Along the way are amenities like water fountains, water bowls, and benches.

As for trails, Gig Harbor has over a dozen. The Penrose Point State Park is perfect for those who love adventure since there are over 150 acres of wilderness and water to explore. Often, wild birds can be seen fishing from the water, and if you’re lucky, you might be able to glimpse some of the wildlife in the forest. The park requires leashes for dogs.

Narrow’s Park is another local favorite. It is named after the Narrows Bridges, both of which can be seen along the park’s 1,000-feet of waterfront property. Donkey Creek Park is nearby and contains a waterway that has a large salmon population. If you and your furry friend are looking for a seriously remote area to explore, you’ll have to visit Cutt’s Island, which can only be accessed by hand-launched boats.

Kopachuck State Park’s sun-warmed, shellfish-rich beaches and creaky forest calls you right out of everyday life and into an adventure. Explore the two miles of shaded hiking trails and plenty of beach this park offers. There are plenty of picnic tables for a rest or a picnic. If your pup is a boater, hop into your canoe or kayak and explore the 2-acre Cutts Island State Park that is only reachable by water, and is a half mile from Kopachuck State Park. Your pup must remained leashed here, and stay at least 100 yards from seals and their pups. Take water and bags with you as there is not potable water, garbage or sanitation service.
