Birding · Fall Colors · Lake
Not too difficult.
A nice short 1.6-mile hike through the woods and wetlands with amazingly huge old maple trees. There is a small lake and seasonably some streams.
Lots of parking available. You can find the trailhead by parking and hiking along the gravel road a short distance. The preserve is well-marked both at the trailhead and where trails diverge.
Most of this trail is along the Perimeter Trail
which you follow through the woods, up and down small hills. You'll stay left on the trail and follow this until you get to the small lake on the property.
The trail turns into the Holton Wetland Interpretive Trail
which you'll follow a short distance before heading onto the Ravine Drop Off Trail
. Once you get to the old barn, you'll go left following the Perimeter Trail
once again until you are back at the trail entrance.
Flora & Fauna
HUGE maple trees, lots of ferns, wildflowers in the summer.
History & Background
The Island County Conservation Futures Program made possible the purchase of the 50 acre gem in central Camano Island. Friends of Camano Island Parks sponsored the project. The property was purchased in 2001 by Island County to became a day use public park with trails. The park is also a Backyard Wildlife Habitat demonstration garden. The property is also a meeting and conference site.
