Day Hike - Newberry Hill Heritage Park

This hike is an opportunity to explore one of the gems of Kitsap County. There are two “lollipop” routes, the first is approx. 2.5 miles and goes through an upland forest with groves of old growth cedar and a beaver pond. The second is approx. 4.8 miles along a Natural Heritage designated wetland and loops back through second growth working forest.
