Lace Up and Stretch: Four Favorite Local Walking Spots

Lace Up and Stretch: Four Favorite Local Walking Spots

Wasn't that a wild winter? There's sure to be more rain but it's great to know we won't be dealing with any more snow this year. Now that it's nicer out, spring is a great time to start taking regular walks or get back into the habit.

Here are four of our favorite spots.

 

Silver Lake
11405 Silver Lake Rd

While you can't follow the shore the whole time, there's still something so satisfying about a lap or two around Silver Lake. With city parks on both sides, you're never far from a restroom or shady spot to take a break. Be sure to climb the hill and explore Green Lantern Park for an even better view of the lake.

Port of Everett Marina
Multiple access points along West Marine View Dr

Don't be intimidated by all the construction, the marina is still a great place to get your steps in. The official map is a little intimidating at first, but it only takes a couple of visits to become familiar with the layout. We like how it's always peaceful there, even with lots of people around. Many of the docks are public and fun to walk on, just be sure to watch your step.

Langus Riverfront Park
400 Smith Island Rd

Want to get away from it all? Explore Langus Riverfront Park and cross the bridge to Spencer Island. The paved river path, natural island loop and gravel lagoon roadway let you cover many miles over varying terrain. Keep an eye out for eagles, hawks and great blue herons. It's a wonderful place to see the sunrise or jog in the rain.

Lowell Riverfront Trail
Lowell-Snohomish River Road

If you've thought about buying a home in the Overlook at Riverfront, you may already know that one of Everett's best walking spots is among the amenities. The Lowell Riverfront Trail is a paved, tree-lined path from the boat launch at Rotary Park that extends all the way to the Overlook townhomes. Gravel wetland trails also connect it to the footbridge leading over the railroad tracks to historic Lowell, where you can grab a snack or even a draft beer at Riverview Market.
