SATURDAY MORNING HIKE – Camano Ridge Forest Preserve, Camano Island, WA

This was the very first hike I planned for this group and i haven’t done it since. Must be time to go back.

Camano Ridge Forest Preserve Loop is a 3.8 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Camano Island, Washington that offers the chance to see wildlife and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, running, and nature trips and is accessible year-round.
Distance: 3.5-4.5 miles
Elevation gain: 357 ft, slightly less, i think if we start at the new entrance described below.
Dogs allowed on leash.
Poop must be scooped and disposed of appropriately
The spiffy new entrance and parking area off of Camano Ridge Road is complete and features a large lot. From Terry’s Corner follow East Camano Drive to Cross Island Road (stop light). Turn right and take Cross Island about 2 miles; turn left on North Camano Ridge Road. Approximately .9 miles ahead, the new trailhead and parking lot will be on your left, just before Carp Lake Road (you can see the Carp Lake Road turnoff just ahead on the right).
As the fall turns to winter, the weather and road conditions can change planned meetups. Be sure you check the morning of an event to see if it is still happening.
Prepare yourself with good footwear (I suggest purchasing some yak traks or snotrax for your feet when it is snowy and icy).
