I only walked a portion of it, I believe it's about 4 miles in all. I stuck to the area along the water. The trail is named after a local environmentalist who passed away. You can see a lot of the boats going by here.

This paved walking pass weaves its way through the marina area at Anacortes. It is very easy walking. There are restroom facilities along the way and there are numerous placards that give historical insight to this area.

We spent about 30 minutes trying to find it and still couldn't. Really wanted to go to. Sign needs to be on the main street to show where it is. I can tell you this it's not on the corner it says.

Every city should have something like this. Named after late community activist Tommy Thompson, the trail covers about four miles and even lets you go out over a long expanse of water on an old railroad trestle (safely surfaced for walking). You can go all...More
