Puget Sound and Islands
Type of HikeDay hike
This is a 402-acre preserve with miles of good winter-walking trails. There are no big views, but the forest is tall and peaceful. The trail goes up and down and back and forth on the fern-lined tread. The Forest Loop trail is a good choice. This 2.0 mile trip can be extended easily. Because this destination is not listed, I will include some directions along with a map. Take Exit 212 from I-5 and continue through Stanwood and across the bridge onto Camano Island. Three miles after the bridge, bear left at the "Y" and continue on East Camano Drive past the Plaza to Shumway Road. Turn right on Shumway and drive 1/4 mile up a hill where the road turns left and becomes Canku Road. Park at the East trailhead just past a house on the right with an extensive chain link fence or continue to the end of the road and locate the West trailhead on the right. Enjoy Camano Island, which has many trails.
