I think the prime time to do this walk is right when the leaves start changing colors. Most of it is dead now. It was nice. Stroller friendly. Pretty. I just think it would be even better if I went even just last week

Bike touringGreat!

Good for a short bike ride, walking is a little boring. Great in salmon season.

First time on the trail. I thoroughly enjoyed the trail. There was snow and ice on the trail but was still able to run the entire trail. Very pretty and the terrain is very manageable. Would strongly recommend this as a year-round trail.

Low trail, beautiful views of Ship creek and wildlife. I planned to go farther, but came across a seemingly permanent camp on the hatchery side of the road, felt uncomfortable, opted out and returned. Did pass a bag on a bench with bras and pajamas spilling out of it. Other than those two things, the trail is beautiful. I enjoy that it’s beauty is tucked behind the industrial setting, and is accessible to showcase. Tide was going out- it was neat to hear all the ice crackling.

First to Review

Starts out as a nice trail, then turned into a walk thru an industrial area with homeless people sleeping on the benches.
