This watershed hike offers water crossings, swaying bridges, beautiful views close to Bothell, and birds galore!
North Creek originates in South Everett and flows 12.6 miles southward through this park before draining into the Sammamish River near Bothell.
Built as a floating boardwalk, the trail was created by using plastic foam floats installed under decking, allowing explorers to walk through a marsh without getting their feet wet.
As you explore this lush wetland, keep an eye out for hawks, eagles, ducks, geese, hummingbirds, wrens, even woodpeckers. The winding course gives hikers solitude, and the flat grade makes it perfect for little feet.
From the north end of North Creek Park Boardwalk, it is possible to continue on the North Creek Trail all the way to McCollum Park, about 2.5 miles from the edge of the North Creek Park Boardwalk.
