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.
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.
