Description

5k Trail by the Snohomish River along the Ebey Slough.

The Ebey Waterfront Trail is a beautiful trail right along the water in Marysville with an interesting back story. The trail offers views of the Qwuloolt Estuary. For more than 100 years, the area had been cut off from the flows of salt and freshwater. In August of 2015, however, a levee was breached, allowing the area to return to a more natural habitat.  Interpretive signs along the way tell the interesting story of the area. And even though the trail starts right in town, it features stellar views of the estuary, the Snohomish River and the Olympic and Cascade mountains.

Begin in the boat ramp parking lot on the southwest corner of State Avenue and First Street. Find the trailhead just upstream of the boat launch. The trail is wide and paved, making it great for either walking or biking. The trail passes under a bridge before continuing upstream.

Keep your eyes open and consider bringing binoculars. You’re almost certain to see wildlife, including blue herons and other birds and, if you’re lucky, river otters. You will pass the water-treatment plant, which is both fascinating and slightly odiferous. Don’t worry, you won’t smell it for long. 

The trail continues on, with a number of convenient benches along the way, until it dead-ends at a nice view of the estuary.  

Only a few people on the trail as it was late in the day with some weather approaching.

Video recorded at a fast walking pace but looks good at the speed of a runner 6 - 8 mph.  If you want to trail run it.

If you enjoyed this video don't forget to like it and any remarks or suggestions. So I know if I'm creating content that people like to use.
