Outdoor Activities

Get great exercise in the fresh air at Evergreen. We have many outdoor activities to explore and equipment to meet your needs.

We're on the Water

With 3000 feet of unspoiled beach, there’s plenty of water to explore on the Puget Sound, whenever you feel like it.

Go kayaking or join the ranks of paddleboarders—one of the fastest-growing outdoor sporting activities.


Running, Hiking, and Walking

Run or walk on a 400 meter cinder track, on the college’s network of forested trails, or on the Evergreen beach

Most outdoor activities are free and open to the public

All visitors pay for parking on weekdays, or you can bus or bike to the Olympia campus.

Outdoor Games and Sports

  • Disc golf: Play disc golf on our 18-hole intermediate-to-advanced course planned, developed, and maintained by the South Puget Sound Disc Golf Association. The course leads through old growth forest and open fields.
  • Tennis: Play tennis on one of four outdoor courts. 
  • Open fields: Plus, with acres of open fields, the area near the CRC and housing is great for all kinds of playing outside, structured or free-form. (If you need sunblock when the sun comes out, drop by the Corner Store at the Housing Community Center.)
  • Soccer: If you want to put together organized soccer or other games, contact us. We have four regulation size multi-use fields.
