Phil’s trail and Shinglemill trail are combined in the AllTrails map. The trail continues up towards Vashon Hwy where there is new construction for a paved accessible trail system. This trail is shaded the whole time and usually very green with ferns and moss. Watch out for nettles in the spring and fall.

Thigh Buster's on the return.. this is not an easy trail. it's lovely and delightful walk but I wouldn't say this is young kid friendly unless they are up for long steep inclines. this is a moderate trail. DOGS ARE ALLOWED

A little beyond the average “easy” rating, given the couple steep inclines when traveling from the Fern Cove area. A great trail running trail or just a quick hike to get out and enjoy the island.

My husband and I walked this trail four times during our 9-day visit to Vashon because it is so magical. The first six-minutes include a steep descent, my flat sneakers worked, but a day hiking boot would be better.

Excellent trail when you cross the street to Fern Cove and see the beautiful beach. More of a moderate trail due to the steepness of it in one area.
