PADILLA BAY TRAIL, Mount Vernon, WA

This review is based on ADA accessiblity, our experience and opinion. Your mileage may vary. 

Getting to the trail is the hardest part, but worth the effort. The trail is flat with good terrain. Part of the north end of the trail is paved, the rest is hardpack with loose gravel. Lots of opportunity to observe and study wildlife.                           

Access to the trail: Zero out of Five Stars
