A wilderness island near the urban fabric of Snohomish County, offers visitors a semi-wilderness experience. Miles of wilderness trails for horses and mountain bikes. Park History Mitchell Lord purchased 80 acres on the hill in 1879 and homesteaded on 130 acres in 1884. Devoting most of his attention to dairying, he also raised horses, sheep and hogs. 100 acres were in cultivation. His home, built on a terraced elevation overlooking the Snohomish River Valley, was one of the most imposing residences in the county. The parks department secured the majority of the park property from the Department of Natural Resources and Washington State Parks through a reconveyance action.
First time here. Most of the trails we went on were well maintained. Some icy conditions today, ground is very frozen in places. Lots of options without backtracking. Will definitely be back to explore more!
Fairly rustic trail and many portions were covered in ice. The main trail was not clearly marked and many of the joining trails were not clearly marked.
Fun quiet trail with lots of beauty
Good trail for the family. Kids and dog handled it well.
A nice trail if you are not sure how far you want to hike as there are plenty of mini destinations. There are maps all over to help you keep track of where you are. It has a nice mix of scenery for being so close to Snohomish/Monroe. With the elevation being particularly low, it can be hiked all year round.
Well maintained, secluded trail located in Snohomish. Great hike for all skill levels. Piece of cake compared to Bridal Vail Falls. Little incline, muddy in spots. Views of ponds and lake. Enjoyed this 3.3 mile loop. Parking at trailhead along with a sani can.
There are many routes to this trail system. Plenty of options to have casual or more challenging hike...don't get lost, though :)
It is good trail to hike with kids.
Easy to get lost because there are lost of routs. Over all good trail.
Fun hike with the family.
