Know Your Island Walk – Goldenback Trail

The Land Bank’s new Stewardship Coordinator, Erin Halcomb will lead us on the Goldenback Trail – a relatively new trail within the Land Bank’s Westside Preserve. In 2016, the property was generously gifted to the Land Bank by the Reiss family, and the half-mile trail was constructed shortly thereafter.

The trail is moderately difficult, a short but consistent climb to the top with switchbacks through coastal prairie habitat and affords both close encounters with its namesake, the delicate Goldenback fern, as well as expansive views of the Salish Sea.

The trailhead is located directly across from the Westside Scenic Preserve’s northern most parking area on Westside Road. Parking is limited so please carpool. Dogs are allowed on leash. 

Saturday October 27, 1-4 pm.
