Enjoy beautiful views, quiet forest and wildlife activity on this peaceful trail, perfect in spring or on a crisp and clear day in winter.
The trails leaving from this site are generally known as the Wetland Wildlife Trail, and offer a variety of ways to enjoy this beautiful place. One option is to head out from the farthest campsite at the Howard Miller Steelhead County Park onto a trail that in a wetland.
The trail follows an old railroad grade and skirts a swampy area where you might see beaver activity if you pay close attention. There are also informational boards on salmon and eagles. It is possible to create quite a long loop on this trail network. By staying on the main trail nearest the river, hikers will eventually connect with the Skagit-Sauk Reach trail, which leads back to the campground.
For a shorter outing, turn right (following a sign that points to a dead end) at a T intersection. You can meander as far as you like down this branch of trail, but it's possible go almost 5 miles this way.
