Miles of public trails!

Published November 28, 2017 / by Steve Berentson

Anacortes public forest lands cover approximately 2,800 acres. They encompass a mosaic of forest, wetlands, lakes and meadows. There are 50 miles of multiple use trails in the city forest lands, all open to hikers (bicycles, horses and 2-wheeled motorcycles allowed in limited areas). Also located on Fidalgo Island are county and state parks with incredible trail systems. Get out and enjoy!

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
