Hansville Greenway


Naturalist Trip - Hansville Greenway

This Naturalist Trip will visit 3 areas of decidedly different ecosystems, focusing on bird watching and moss and lichen identification. Hansville Greenway is a mix of woods and meadows with ponds, Foulweather Bluff Preserve Trail is an access to a bay and beach near the outlet of Hood Canal and Point No Point is a beach and marsh birding hotspot. The trip requires a ferry ride from Seattle.

  • Easy
  • Mileage: 5.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 100 ft

We will meet at 9:00 AM at the parking lot of the Norwegian Point Park 39118 Hansville Rd NE, Hansville.  Expect to catch the 7:55 AM ferry from Edmonds, which will require a 7:15 departure from the carpool location at the N 148th Street and 1st Ave NE Temporary Park and Ride in Shoreline WA.

This is a birding and moss identification (and trees too) naturalist trip, so count on us moving slowly and stopping to examine and identify what we find. Expect to spend about 6 hours out.
