Bowerman Basin Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Hike along a boardwalk to views of the expansive mudflats of Grays Harbor’s Bowerman Basin. One of the finest places in all of Washington for bird-watching, the basin is inundated with shorebirds from late April until early May. Plan your trip accordingly and witness tens of thousands of migrating birds. Consider visiting during Hoquiam’s annual Shorebird Festival in early May.

Start by walking the gated paved airport road west along a row of hangars and a thicket of willows. At 0.4 mile, reach the Sandpiper Trail. This nicely built boardwalk allows easy access to the 1500-acre Grays Harbor National Wildlife Refuge."
