The Hobbit Trail winds through brush, trees, and small ponds (roughly a mile walk) giving opportunity to see various wildlife. The best part could be the variety of birds one can see while out. A friend of ours had never seen a bald eagle... More

We actually go to the spit and walk the various trails, typically a one mile loop that includes a walk on the top of the dike, some marsh/wetlands, the toe of a slope area and crossings of various drainage channels along the way. That trip is approximately just shy of one mile, but you can also cross the dike in... More

This is a beautiful preserve. We hiked the loop and loved it. Because of an unusually high tide we could not hike on the beach. We did see an eagle, a heron, and a few ducks. It was a gorgeous day and the mountain views were exceptional.

good place for a short easy walk. should take no more than an hour and it is level and easy to navigate. there can be muddy places after it rains. the camano trails assoc does a good job of maintaining the trails.

This is a great place to walk around and watch and listen. Walking along the beach and on the marked trails was a lot of fun. I hope to be able to return again soon!

I loved this little preserve with wonderful trails and thousands of birds! I was pretty much alone there most of the time. Beautiful!

This park is a hidden gem that many locals don't even know about. Lots of sandy beach when the tide is out. Great for sand castles with the kids. This is an excellent place for bird watching (song birds, raptor birds, and both salt and fresh water aquatic birds). I love this place. This is an excellent place to hike... More

Best place in the area to walk on the beach, with or without your dog(s). Adequate parking, outstanding shoreline preservation; still a work in progress.
