What is the Mosquito Fleet Trail?

The Mosquito Fleet Trail is approximately 100 miles of roadside hiking and biking along the shores of the Kitsap Peninsula. The route will be marked with distinctive signs, making it easy to follow on foot, by bicycle or by automobile.  It links the old Mosquito Fleet docks from Kingston to Southworth.  It provides access to many other interesting stopping points including villages and towns, parks, historic sites, and scenic vistas. When complete, it will surely be a nice way for local citizens to walk to their neighbor's house or bike to the store.

What's Happening?

West Kingston Road - The very first segment of the MFT on the north end of the County was completed September, 2002. This facility offers sidewalks and bike lanes in the urban section, and bicycle lanes in the rural section and terminates at the Miller Bay Road.

Miller Bay Road Bike/Pedestrian Trail
This project is intended to construct a multi-purpose trail along the Miller Bay Road NE corridor from the intersection of Indianola Road NE to the intersection of S.R. 104/Miller Bay Road. Miller Bay Road is identified in the Mosquito Fleet Trail Master Plan as a primary route. Critical areas and right–of–way issues make this a challenging project. Four alignment alternatives have been reviewed and a Pre-Design Study Report was completed last fall. A Public Meeting was held on February 3rd, 2009. The majority of the attendees at this meeting spoke strongly in opposition of a separated trail and in favor of constructing shoulders along Miller Bay Road. The County has considered the input from the public and is working on a plan to restructure the project based on the public input. The restructuring of the project is focusing on getting from Miller Bay Road to Kingston, on an off-road trail through the North Kitsap Heritage Park, connecting to West Kingston Rd and Kingston.

Paved shoulder work recently completed on the Indianola Road. This work was performed during the course of two different roadway construction projects and paved shoulders now exist from inside the Indianola community to the vicinity of Gerald Cliff Drive.

Southworth Drive - The summer of 2001 saw the completion of paved shoulders on both sides of the roadway from the ferry terminal all the way to the flashing red light at the 90 degree turn (approx. three-quarters of a mile).

Summer 2010 - Southworth Drive link between SE Olympiad Drive and the Harper Dock has started construction. This half-mile segment was a safety issue for pedestrians and bicycle enthusiasts.  Estimated completion is October 2010.  Road Construction Info
