San Juan Island Trails Committee: Know Your Island Walk with Doug McCutchen
Enjoy a little history with a walk on the Wild West Side with the Land Bank’s San Juan Island Preserve Steward, Doug McCutchen. Doug will take us on the main trails through the west side, with a focus on ecological and human history including lime mining, agriculture, Tribes and First Nations, Hawaiians, fish traps and commercial fishing, geology, and ecological history. After the formal walk anyone who is interested is invited to do a preview of the proposed trail route up the Reiss property. It would add about another mile and is steep and rocky with uneven terrain.
Meet at Lime Kiln Point State Park.
Distance: 2 miles
Rating: Moderate on gentle trails.
Dogs on leashes are welcome.
