Hiking Lowell Riverfront Park Trail

The Lowell Riverfront Trail in Everett is a 1.6-mile pedestrian trail in a park on the banks of the Snohomish River. Stretching north from Lowell River Road near Rotary Park, the ten foot wide, paved path guides walkers through an area revered for its historical significance, natural beauty and central location.

In addition to the pedestrian trail, there is also a one-mile loop trail in Rotary Park. Look in cottonwood trees for Bullock's Orioles, listen for owls, and be sure to examine the river closely for cormorants.

Birding is a popular activity here, as many species can be seen on any given day. Look for migrating tiny ruby-crowned Kinglet, or the more majestic raptors: Bald Eagles and Red-tailed Hawks call the riverfront home, as do Sharp-shinned, and Cooper's Hawks. In winter, you may also see Fox Sparrows, Yellow-rumped Warblers, and Hermit Thrushes. 

Sea life abounds here, too. You may be lucky enough to spot a Stellar's Sea Lion or a playful otter in the water while you walk along this charming riverside trail.
