If you've been to Cama Beach and Camano Island State Parks, and you're looking for another diversion on Camano Island, consider Iverson Spit Waterfront Preserve. This delightful area offers some short hiking trails and, of course, ever present views of the Cascade Mountains and shoreline wandering.

Come to picnic or wander along the beach, but definitely make this stop if you're a birdwatcher. 125 bird species have been spotted here! The preserve will hold children and adults attention for a forest exploration and seaside stroll.

Explore the hidden Hobbitt Trail leading you through a thicket of moss covered trees and bushes under a bower of mossy branches, out to a canal with views of the Sound.

Found on Port Susan Bay at the opening of Livingston Bay, this area is about 10 minutes from Stanwood. You'll enjoy views northeast across Port Susan Bay of the Cascades: Mount Baker, Glacier Peak, Mount Pilchuck and others.
