Langus Riverfront Park trailhead, 8:30 AM.
No permit required at the trailhead.

400 Smith Island Road
Everett WA 98201

From Seattle: take exit 195 and turn left onto East Marine View Dr. Continue 1.2 miles to the entrance ramp onto Highway 529. Head north, cross the bridge and make a right onto 28th Place. At the next intersection, turn right onto 35th Avenue NE. Continue to the stop sign and turn left onto Ross Avenue. Turn right onto Smith Island Road into the park.

The Lanugs Riverfront trail follows the Snohomish River with views of Mount Rainier and Mount Pilchuck. The trail takes us over a bridge to 400 acre Spencer Island, which is part of the Snohomish River Estuary. This is a great place to see birds. 

This will be a slow paced hike with short stops for pictures and bird identification. 

The hike will be cancelled if there is heavy rain. 


There are concerns about the road to the trailhead being flooded.  With flooding in the forecast later this week, the hike may be cancelled. I will be driving to the trailhead Saturday morning, and will email the participants by 1:00 PM if the hike will go or if it will be cancelled.
