Park History

Park Rules

Trails - The trail system in the Guillemot Cove Nature Reserve may change slightly over a period of time due to the ever changing flow of the creeks through the estuary.

Main Access Trail: Begins across the road from the parking lot. It is roughly one mile long and sloping downhill. One can follow the access road through an alder and big leaf maple tree forest or continue through to the Sawmill Trail.

Sawmill Trail (0.3 miles): This trail follows an old logging road through a large sword fern, alder, and mixed conifer forest to the Margaret Trail. Margaret Trail (0.4 miles): The narrow trail follows the side of the hill until cutting steeply down to sea level. It passes through a coniferous forest with a few large cedar trees.

Stump House Trail (0.25 miles): The trail starts in the meadow across from the old barn. Part of the meadow is quite wet. The trail ends at the Stump House (a large hollowed out cedar stump with a roof.)

Maple Tree Trail: This beautiful trail begins by the barn and follows an old roadbed. It continues along Boyce Creek in an easterly direction. This flat, easy trail goes through an alder and big leaf maple forest with a small meadow and connects to the River Loop Trail.

River Trail Loop (0.25 miles): This trail travels through a mixed forest with large sword ferns and connects back to the end of the Maple Tree Trail.

Beach House Trail: This trail follows the old roadbed across Boyce Creek through a meadow and forest adjacent to the marsh. At the beach house there is access to the beach on Hood Canal. During low tide, avoid walking on the sand dollar beds in the mud.

Ridge Trail (0.5 miles): Behind the beach house, and to the left, this trail winds up several steep hills and through a forest of conifers, alders, and big leaf maples.
