Silver Lake - Seaquest Trail Professional Review and Guide
"A forest walk and a wetlands walk—two trails for the price of one! Deep, old Douglas fir and hemlock forest lines the woodland perimeter trail. Despite the number of visitors that hike the trail, expect to see deer, owls, assorted squirrels, a couple of jay varieties, and maybe even cougar or black bear tracks. On the other side of the highway is a fully accessible shoreline trail along Silver Lake.
Big, beautiful Silver Lake is entering old age. Like all living things, the lake is changing, and it will die someday. Death, for a lake, is disappearance. The shoreline of Silver Lake is extending out into the water, the water is getting shallower, and lush meadows flourish where fish once swam. The wide, paved trail loops through meadows and shoreline."
