The Guemes Channel Trail hugs the shoreline showcasing the amazing beauty of Fidalgo Island’s north shore. It offers great recreational benefits for all ages as it is non-motorized and accessible. In concert with the Tommy Thompson Parkway, once completed, it will connect Washington Park with the Park and Ride at March's Point. Before that is accomplished there are many issues to be addressed along the trail. We have put this summary together to help give the community a better understanding of the project and how we plan to address the environmental, construction and permitting challenges along the way. As visitors to the Guemes Channel Trail and Thompson Trail already know, the work it takes to complete the trails is worth the benefits our community will experience in terms of recreation, health and commerce.
