The Bainbridge Island Waterfront Trail Map offers people two opportunities to walk along scenic Eagle Harbor, each offering distinctive views of island history and habitat. The western loop includes parks, restaurants, marinas and a chance to view some of the islands historic sites and trees. People usually walk the 2-mile loop in about an hour. Ample shortcuts are available for those pressed for time. The eastern loop goes through a residential neighbor- hood and then along the beach at Hawley Cove, ending with a path into a wooded area. For most walkers, the 1.5 mile round trip takes less than an hour. Bicycles can be rented near the ferry terminal, as can an assortment of boats at Waterfront Park. Coffee cafes and restaurants abound along the western Waterfront Trail. A grocery store and picnic benches can be found for those who would rather pack their own. (The grocery will even recycle your empty bottles.)

Where's the water?? Path is only partially on the water. Stop for the blackberries along the way. Not really a trail, just a pathway mostly on pavement and the street that gets you to a nice little marina at the end. But the boats are cool.

07/03/2015 - Friday - We walked on the ferry from Seattle to visit the island and check out the Waterfront Trail which combines dirt and pavement as it connects you to several parks along the waterfront. The views are great and it's a relaxing environment. Combined with a visit to the shops for lunch and a gelato, and this is a fun little addition to the outing. Very dog-friendly.
