Hiking Oak Tree Park

Garry Oak habitat used to be widespread in the south sound region. These ecosystems were protected and managed by Native Americans for thousands of years to stop evergreen forests from taking over these open areas. Now only a few examples remain.

This park is one of those remnants. It is also a pilot project for the Green Tacoma Partnership who is working on restoring this area, and it is a prime candidate because of the ecosystem represented here.

Visitors can check it out via one of three trails, or they can link them together to form a longer loop.

WTA Pro Tip: Save a copy of our directions before you leave! App-based driving directions aren't always accurate and data connections may be unreliable as you drive to the trailhead.

Getting There

From I-5, take exit 129 (stay right at the fork if you are coming from the north). Where the off-ramp ends, head west on S. 74th St. for 0.6 mile. Turn left onto S. Cedar St. which will dead-end at a gravel turnaround where you can park to access the park.

Take Transit:

Route 202 stops at the intersection of 74th St. S and Cedar St., about 100 feet from the trailhead.
