South Indian Island

South Indian Island Professional Review and Guide

"Hike through a forest of madronas and Douglas-firs to a long sandy beach with impressive views of Mount Rainier hovering over the horizon. Walk out on a narrow spit, explore a lagoon flourishing with birds, and watch for playful seals plying the waters. The 142-acre Indian Island County Park offers some of the best maritime meanderings on this side of the Olympic Peninsula.

From the grassy bluff picnic area, follow the Portage Trail east through a tunnel of vegetation along Portage Canal. In late spring enjoy the fragrance and blossoms of primrose and honeysuckle. The trail brushes up against some marshy openings, ideal for seeking out eagles and herons."
