Japanese Gulch

Great For: Hiking, Walking, Kids, Dogs
Length: various paths of 4 miles
Japanese Gulch is technically located in Mukilteo, but that border line is close enough, so we’ll claim this trail for now. This trail is great for hiking or walking, and has a small incline for a steady workout. This trail boasts of beautiful views and naturescapes, including waterfalls, streams, and classic PNW greenery. Make sure to bring a pair of good hiking boots and binoculars, because you might see a few interesting bird specimens along the way.
 
Before you leave, let your dog roam free in the fully-fenced dog park located at the entrance of the trail. Make sure to bring your own poop bags and water supplies, just so everyone leaves safe and clean.
