Ebey Waterfront Trail Description

The Ebey Waterfront Trail offers visitors a front seat to both nature and history. Beginning at Ebey Waterfront Park, the wide, blacktop trail stretches nearly two miles along Ebey Slough before ending at the Qwuloolt Estuary. The estuary was dammed for over 100 years, cut off from the river flows. In 2015, the dam was breached and the process of restoring the estuarine ecology began.

The trail begins near the park's boat launch, and continues under the State Avenue/ SR 529 bridge. Traveling along the banks of the slough, trail users will be treated to scenic views of the water and Mt. Rainier in the distance. Benches allow users to linger. Lucky visitors may be able to spot frolicking river otters or majestic eagles. The whole area has a wealth of bird life, over 200 species. The trail does pass by the local water treatment plant but don't let that deter you. Keep on the trail, and you'll come to the Qwuloolt Estuary. The trail dead ends near the breach, but there is a picnic area there, as well as interpretive signage narrating the estuary's story. Once you're done picnicking, take the trail back to Ebey Waterfront Park.

Future plans include building a connection across the breach to connect to the multi-use waterfront trail from Harborview Park.

Parking and Trail Access

The trailhead is found at Ebey Waterfront Park (1404 First St, Marysville, WA).

bird watching and sea lions ¿

It was a little stinky but the beautiful sights were gorgeous. Not too busy. Easy to get to and cool temperatures with water on both sides of the walkway. Flat paved roads. Nice Sunday stroll
