Looking for a winter hike for the family?
Join Friends of Camano Island Parks! On February 2, the group is offering a free guided trail walk through Cama Beach State Park, a park on the southwest shore of Camano Island. The beach offers visitors a chance to step back in time to a 1930s-era Puget Sound fishing resort complete with waterfront cedar cabins and bungalows.
The hike will start in the northeast part of the park and will take you on a 2.7 mile, moderately-paced walk out to the Marine View Loop Trail as well as the Bluff and Old Entrance Trail. The event will take place rain or shine and there will be a shuttle available to return visitors to the parking area after the hike. Be sure to dress for the weather wear study shoes or boots! For this hike, please leave pets at home.
