Description

This trail can be done in either direction, and there are many points to access it. The official trailhead is at Fruitdale Rd and SR20. The Skagit Co Maps have not been updated since 2000, though. So the start of the trail is now Northern Ave and Metcalf St.

This is a 100% dedicated trail, which means you don't have to worry about doing any shoulder hiking! This is an absolutely gorgeous trail that takes you right through the heart of the Skagit Valley. The views are impeccable. You'll be hiking through farmlands, with the ocean to your back, and the Cascades rising up in front of you.

Flora & Fauna

There are many, many, many oaks, deer, ferns, cedars, pines, and apples along this trail.
