Spencer Island Trail

Spencer Island Trail Professional Review and Guide

"A small island east of Everett and bordered in the Snohomish River estuary by Union Slough and Steamboat Slough is divided into both a county park and a state game area, allowing bird hunting during the winter season. Children will enjoy the county park portion, which features birds and wildlife, thriving in an ecosystem made up of fresh water from the river and saltwater from Port Gardner Bay.

Children will also enjoy the chance to walk along the levees and dikes and to see waterfowl and shorebirds at any time of year. During hunting season (October–January) stay away from the north portion of the island. How do the birds know where they are safe? The kids may well ask."

I started a mom-child hikes group and this was our 2nd hike of the year. I wouldn't call it a hike, but more of a nature walk. We saw plenty of birds including egrets, hawks etc. Nice level hike-about 1 mile before you actually hit the Spencer Island Bridge. Plenty of places to sit and have a picnic etc. Good for children. FYI-directions aren't very clear. All of us weren't sure of where to go and got a little lost on the way there. Once you hit Langus park, park in the large lot across from the animal shelter. There is a paved path along the river that goes behind a building and continues on until for about a mile until you hit Spencer Lake.
