Hiking Forest to Sky Trail

This trail can be hiked on its own or joined with other area trails for a longer outing as part of the Cross Island Trail. This stretch of trail connects two popular areas on the island: Battle Point Park and Grand Forest West, which both have their own network of trails.

It is more than just a connector though, with a beautiful stretch of boardwalk that floats atop a wetland. Open to hikers, mountain bikers, and horseback riders, this trail is a great option to get outside on Bainbridge Island.
