Description

This trail starts at the corner of Q Ave and 9th Street. The trail is pretty straightforward, just follow the extra wide paved path. The trail has several restrooms along the route, as well as trash cans.

There is no parking at the end of the trail. The trail is a ribbon of public land, so don't get off of it. The trail crosses right over the Fidalgo Aquatic Reserve, and is built on an old railroad track.

Flora & Fauna

Oaks, horsetail, pines, deer, eagles, and seagulls can be seen here.
