Spur trail to/from popular Shinglemill Trail. Limited shoulder parking on Cedarhurst near the Fern Cove gate. Trailhead is marked and across the street from parking spots. Makes for a more challenging hike up Shinglemill as it has more uphills and turns than following the traditional creek route. Leashed Dogs only, no bikes, only a few slick/sloppy spots if wet, very well maintained

The loop utilizes “Bill’s Trail” which starts from the road from the upper Fern Cove parking area, then picks up the Shinglemill Creek trail. Good uphills and downhills, plus stream views and nice bridges. I would rate this route as “Moderate” given the climbs, but it’s still fairly mild.

Really cool trail, takes you to the sound. Beautiful creek where salmon spawn. Dogs love it. Just make sure you can handle the steep incline on the way back. Great day hike for the family. Bills trail which goes higher up also ends at the sound also.
