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.

Super cute trial! Wasn’t too hard and we even saw a little snake. A little muddy but nothing too bad, definitely would recommend!

Nice moderate trail. Took our 2 tweens and 2 dogs. Ended up putting our little white dog in our back pack because it was extremely muddy. Good climbs to get heart up. Lots of rocks and roots. Definitely need to watch your step. Fun day.

Good trail to break in

It was beautiful and peaceful. trail is pretty narrow at times. Not well maintained but my kids enjoyed the adventure.

Great hike - the “Record” feature on All Trails was so helpful. There are a lot of small side trails and the GPS feature really helped us stay on the trails we wanted

Really awesome trail. I can’t wait to come back and complete the full loop and see the water.

There is no lake!

Good hike, nothing really special or remarkable. You gotta share the space with other hikers, joggers, mt. bikers, and horse riders so don't expect any privacy … or quiet. River is really rocky, not a great place to take off your shoes and get wet. Nice place to break for lunch. I recommend downloading the map .. there are LOTS of trails and it's easy to make the wrong turn.

I would say 70% well groomed the other 30% is a bit Rocky and Hilly but if you’re a trail runner this is an excellent option . I found you could get all the mileage you want out of this park . 15 mile run? No problem..... I was entertained the whole route seeing different terrain ,ponds , it made for an excellent run.

Great trail. Lots over overhanging trees with moss and you can still see remnants of the giant trees that once stood. I would however rate this trail as easy given the minimal elevation change.

watch out for any singletrack, as there are stinging plants and blackberries.

Trail to begin with was perfect! Took my two dogs (1 year old Lab and 3 year old Husky) and they had no problem doing this hike. One downfall however was on the way back we took the left route that took us to “Wishbone” after wishbone it was some sort of cut through that was VERY over grown with lots of blackberry bushes and logs you cannot see underneath. Other than this little discrepancy in the trail, it was fairly easy and beautiful! DO NOT GO DOWN WISHBONE AND OFF TRAIL LIKE THE MAP SAYS TO!!!

This was fun! We took our 4 and 6 year old. The trail was a bit overgrown, but it made it more fun. We had to climb over some trees, but it was no problem. I appreciated the former reviews, because we had taken sticks with us to help clear the path. It led us to the river, where we were all able to swim. We didn’t see anyone else on the trail. We were a bit confused about how to find the lake. At the very beginning when you get down the hill, there is a trail that veers to the left. If you take that, the lake is about 3 minutes in. I probably wouldn’t swim in the lake. It’s pretty small and swampy. The river was great though! We did see animal tracks and droppings that looked like they could have belonged to a cougar.

Good trail. Not too easy but not too hard- gets the heart going. Brought the dog and he was just fine. Bring extra water and make sure you keep on the main trail if you're worried. It's easy to get onto to side-trails and they've overgrown a bit. Good, fun hike for morning or afternoon.

LOTS of horse poop even on trails marked saying no horses, signs poorly marked and hard to follow with out the app but still enjoyed and got to wade into the river a bit and cool off before hiking back

not much to see lots of rocks hard on the feet
