About This Trail

[Total: 14    Average: 3.5/5]

This is a great hike with amazing views, with the added bonus of being available to hike all year round. It is 5.6 miles in length with only 260 feet in elevation gain.

Start at the Prairie Overlook parking lot, follow the trail west through farmland and behind private property. Pretty soon you’ll see a trail marker advising you to stay on the left and follow that trail half a mile to the Bluff Trail. Once you arrive at the Bluff Trail, take a right, climb a steep but short hill, and hike 2.5 miles to the north along a beautiful bluff overlooking the Puget Sound and Perego’s Lagoon. Eventually you’ll arrive at a switchback, where you will descend all the way down to the beach. The trail here is very narrow, so this is a great time to have a discussion about right of way and safe hiking practices.

Once at the beach, head south again for 2 miles until you arrive at the parking lot for Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve. This is also a great place to park if you want a much shorter, out and back walk along the beach or the bluffs, although parking here does require a state Discover Pass. Head back up the staircase and towards that first junction where the Prairie Overlook Trail met the Bluff Trail, and then make your way back to the parking lot.

Hello! I am a former Journeyman Wireman turned stay-at-home mom to my four beautiful children. After growing up in the hot desert of Las Vegas, we decided to make a change and move to beautiful Snohomish County WA. I found my community here through Hike it Baby, and I now work to facilitate that for others. If you’re ever in my neck of the woods, come join me on a hike!
