Get Outdoors at McCormick

Explore our Trails at McCormick

Now’s the time to get outdoors.  The crisp fall days beckon you to get on the trails, breathe in our fresh Washington air, and enjoy time in nature.   Just out your backdoor at McCormick are miles of peaceful trails for you to slowly meander, or to get your heart rate up and get a good hike or jog in. It’s your choice as McCormick offers both.

Trail System with 7 Miles to Explore

McCormick’s trail system is the perfect place to walk your dog, take the kids or grandkids exploring, or enjoy a nice evening walk with your spouse. Here are a few ideas to utilize our beautiful trails!

McCormick Woods Trail

  1. See if you can walk (or jog) each trail. McCormick offers 7 miles of trails so whether you are a seasoned hiker, jogger, or just a walker who wants to get fresh air, our trails are fit for anyone.
  2. Early morning stroll with coffee. Get up 20 min before the sun rises, grab your coffee in your favorite tumbler and go for an early morning stroll to get the day started.  The morning frost this time of year makes the evergreen and foliage backdrop even more stunning.
  3. Count how many ponds or little pockets of water you stumble upon on a given trail. We already know that Big Pond you can see (at least) two!
  4. Evening walk with friends. Dinner parties are a must this holiday season so mix it up with getting out of the house after and going for an evening walk with your friends.  Sunsets at McCormick are also something to really take in.
  5. Spot the occasional mountain peak.  This time of year our Olympic and Cascade mountains get their first dusting of snow.   You’ll be mesmerized by this beautiful paradise we call home.

Big Pond McCormick

Here is a McCormick trail map, save it and print it for your explorations!  If you haven’t explored McCormick’s trails yet, start with the Beaver Dam trail, accessible just off the entrance to McCormick from Old Clifton Road on McCormick Woods Drive.   Big Pond Trail is also a favorite and gives you a great loop to explore.  You’ll probably bump into a neighbor or two, but even more likely a duck, goose, or our resident deer.

McCormick Village Park (and Dog Park)

Just across Old Clifton Rd from McCormick is the brand new McCormick Village Park.  This 65-acre park, offers a mile loop trail, fenced dog park, playground, picnic shelters, splash pad for the warmer months, and restrooms.    McCormick Woods residents are especially excited for the fantastic McCormick Village Park dog park, being so close to home!

Mary McCormick Park

If you’d rather play pickleball, tennis, or shoot some hoops, Mary McCormick Park at McCormick is your place to be.  Mary McCormick Park also has a playground and parking, though walking or biking to the park from home is convenient on our paved sidewalks and miles of trails.
