Hidden Gem Spotlight: O.O. Denny Park

Hidden Gem Spotlight: O.O. Denny Park

O.O. Denny Park, a 30 minute drive northeast of Seattle, is a quiet, secluded park that is a great option when you are short on time and looking for a burst of nature. A 2.5 mile, moderately hilly loop will take you from the waterfront—with restrooms, a playground, pebbly beach, and large picnic area—to a well-groomed trail system winding through a lush ravine. Highlights are a 600+-year-old tree trunk named Sylvia, a trio of beautifully crafted wooden bridges, and the opportunity to enjoy waterfront views from benches and picnic tables in the park.
