Iverson Spit has generally level trails and the loop is approximately 2 miles. The additional one way trail off of the Forest Loop Trail adds about .8 miles each way. The trails run along the beach, through a forested section and along a beaver marsh. The Hobbit trail travels through a grove of Pacific Crab Apple trees. It has 90 acres of waterfront property. Spectacular views of Livingston Bay, Mount Baker, Three Fingers Mountain and the cascades as well as a view of Mount Rainier from the beach. There are three stairways over the dike that allow access to a sandy beach. This is a known bald eagle area so if you're lucky you'll spot an eagle or an osprey.

Beautiful place to hang out

Very easy flat trail along the waters edge for the half of it. Beach access with incredible views of Mt. Baker, Three Fingers and Cascades. You can even see Mt. Rainier from the beach. Eagles are known to frequent this area though we didn’t see any. Make sure to take the Hobbit trail, aptly named. Just make sure to watch out for the tree roots. It’s a short trail all around but very pretty.

I did this trail in January so it was a little muddy but still fun! It’s pretty flat and easy so it was a nice one to start with. I’m new to the area and have a goal to do a hike once a week. I liked the little hobbit trail too. It was a little slippery but cozy. We saw humming birds, ducks, cranes, chickadees and a rabbit. All and all it was a nice little hike and we will be doing to again soon.
