Mercer Slough Nature Park

Mercer Slough Nature Park Professional Review and Guide

"You might see a great blue heron take flight from a rookery tree. You might glimpse a river otter, beaver, or coyote. Yet, when you look up from the trail, you will see the skyscrapers of Bellevue, less than a mile away from the Mercer Slough Nature Park.

The park encompasses 320 acres of wetland, hiking and canoe trails, a working blueberry farm, and the historic Winters House Visitor Center—all on the site where there were once commercial gardens growing fruits, vegetables, and flowers for Bellevue residents. The hiking trails pass over and along the Mercer Slough and consist of wooden walkways and bark paths. Special attractions: Nature trails, blueberry farm."

The Mercer Slough trail in Bellevue has a surprisingly large trail for being in the middle of the city. We've found that the easiest approach is to park at the south Bellevue park & ride and go from there. The trail is paved the entire way, so tennis shoes are fine. It is a good trail if you are looking for a nice jogging path within Bellevue or a peaceful walk after work.
