Mercer slough is within short drive from either Seattle or Bellevue, and it is well worth the trip. Long winding shaded paths, calm water ways, wild blueberries and blackberries for the picking - our kids had a blast.

We visited during blueberry season and what a treat! 16 acres of blueberries available for you to pick from. They provide the containers and weigh out when done. $1.99 per pound was a great price.

This is a great place for an evening walk or run. The experience is very peaceful and enjoyable. I did not have the opportunity to visit the visitor's center. It looks like it would have been worth the extra time.

This area is just south of downtown Bellevue. There are a several trails winding throughout, but if you stay to the perimeter it's easy to make a nice 5 mile loop. Don't miss the salmon ladder and associated educational placard near the northern edge. There's also a Nature Education Center on the route worth stopping in to see.

Quite a few joggers out when I was there (around 5pm on a weekday). Great place for a business traveler to get away from the urban landscape of downtown Bellevue w/o traveling far.... More

Beautiful trails with extended walks available. The trails connect with other extended trail systems. This area did have a little debris along the way that could be better maintained, but all in all, a nice place to walk.

Wonderful place to take a long peaceful walk amid marsh grass and blueberries. Signage is excellent and there are options for routes through the marsh.

Nice walking park, through woods, fields and along stream. Only drawback is that it can be quite muddy in spots after some rain.
