There is a trail for running, walking and biking that goes around the school, (about 1.5 miles), and it connects up with the Evergreen Parkway trail, which is nice and shady on a hot day... (It adds another 2-4 miles to the total walk, so lots of options for a short walk or a longer one...). All paved trail...

Roughly 55 minutes drive to this beautiful hike that meanders along the river in this National Forest park. You can make this hike as long or short as you like; it used to be a loop, using the bridge that is/was about 3 miles from the trailhead; that bridge has been closed or washed out by floods in the past, so it may or may not be there now...:). It’s a lovely easy to moderate hike.

A must- see if you have the time: Mt Rainier is spectacular, with numerous trails for all levels of hikers. Two great Historic lodges to visit/eat a meal/stay the night are at the midway point and at the top of the park road. About 2 hour drive from Olympia.
