Theler Wetlands Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"At the head of Hood Canal are the Theler Wetlands—139 acres of protected estuary, freshwater marsh, and forest at the mouth of the Union River. Locals consider it a treasure, and so should you. The area is not pristine, but undisturbed estuaries are rare in Puget Sound.
That makes this place the next best thing because the Theler Wetlands are certainly on their way to recovery. Also on the upside, this place is well cared for and loved. Hikers, botanizers, and bird- watchers will not be disappointed by the Theler Wetlands. There is much to see, and after only a short walk from the highway, the scene is quiet and serene."
