IslandWood’s trails will be open this day only for your self-guided exploration.
Hike leisurely down the Spine Trail and traverse the ravine on a suspension bridge. How many species of ferns can you spot from the bridge? (our staff will have the answer!)
Meander through hemlock and red-cedar woods and make your way towards Mac’s Pond to scout for ospreys and eagles. They love to soar overhead at this spot! Head up the Cemetery Trail and peek in the Mill Worker’s Cabin or head south to explore the more elusive “Lower Loop Trail” full of mossy wonders, maidenhair ferns, and hooty owls. Heading back to campus, take the Spine Trail north and weave around the cattail marsh, stopping at the Bird Blind to observe waterfowl and other wildlife. Both treehouses and our Forest Canopy Tower will be open for your visit, too!
We’ll have maps for you so you can find your way around and will be happy to suggest a route that is suitable for your family and abilities. You never know what you’ll find walking along the path with you…
If you’ve come before, we welcome you back again. There is always something new to see every season!
Your health and safety, as well as that of our staff, is our first priority. We’ll be limiting the number of guests walking the trails and will be acting in accordance with current health and safety guidelines. We ask that you do the same, and that you bring a mask to wear to keep you, and those around you, safe.
Service animals only, please.
We work to ensure that all reasonable accommodations are in place so that everyone can fully participate and learn during their time on our campus. All indoor spaces and many of our outdoor spaces and field structures were built and are continually maintained to meet ADA code, adhering to WAC 51-50.

IslandWood is grateful for the support from the Fletcher Bay Foundation.
Be the first!
