It is beautiful here!!!  If you park in the upper parking lot by the playground, you can walk through a beautiful forest on a trail with built in stairs and bridges while the creek babbles away on the side of the trail. After you reach the area to access the beach, you walk across a sky bridge over some railroad tracks which ends on a tall platform overlooking a very large beach and a beautiful view of the Puget Sound and islands. About 11 sets of winding steps take you down to the sand where you can either go left or right. Either way, there is usually plenty of beach for everyone and it isn't all packed the way most other beaches are. It is fairly peaceful and relaxing. BNSF at commuter trains  go by and it is nice to either walk the beach or just sit and look at the water. As with most puget sound beaches the open area depends on current tide conditions. This beach can go from 10 feet during high tide to a couple a hundred of feet during low tide. Before heading to Howarth Park its important to know the current tide levels. During High Tide there is no access to the offleash area.
