Newberry Hill Heritage Park surrounds Klahowya Secondary School in Silverdale. Twenty different service roads and single-track trails in the park make an almost unlimited amount of ways to get a short trail workout for the day. Friends of Newberry Hill Heritage Park maintains the park. “The beaver ponds are so calm and tranquil in the mornings!” states local trail runner Tabatha Collins.
A simple 4.7-mile loop around the park’s outer edge uses the Old Loop Road and Rhodie Hill Trail from the parking lot at the north end of the park. Going clockwise, take the Deer Fern Trail to Old Loop Road. Turn left for a quarter-mile to Rhodie Hill. Rhodie Hill is a 1.1-mile loop that circles back to Old Loop Road. As the name infers, there is a short, steep hill on this section. Once back at Old Loop, turn left until the trail goes to the beaver pond. There are some little trails in the section to add a little spice to the loop. Old Loop Road will head north back to the school. Continue on Old Loop until a left turn on Fire Trail. Fire Trail will connect back to the entrance road back to the parking lot.
There is also a section of trail in the NE section of the park that the Fire Trail leads into, including the 1.2 mile Beaver Loop to add a little distance.
