Trail Times: Fall, 2021 — King Sisters Preserve Trail

Posted November 4, 2021 at 5:50 am by

Trail Times is a con­tin­u­ing series of arti­cles intro­duc­ing the Old Mil­i­tary Road Trail (OMRT), a pro­posed 18–21 mile cross-island non-motor­ized mul­ti-use trail link­ing Eng­lish Camp and Amer­i­can Camp and hon­or­ing the orig­i­nal Old Mil­i­tary Road.

The King Sis­ters Pre­serve is an often over­looked lit­tle gem in our San Juan Island Trail Sys­tem. Strate­gi­cal­ly locat­ed in the heart of San Juan Island near the cor­ner of San Juan Val­ley and Boyce/Wold Roads, this rough­ly 2‑mile round trip walk­ing trail par­al­lels San Juan Val­ley Road and will one day con­nect with the Old Mil­i­tary Road Trail (OMRT) in the near­by Zyl­stra Lake Trail system.

To begin the King Sis­ters Trail from the north, park at the Trail Head on the cor­ner of Wold and San Juan Val­ley Roads or across from there on Boyce Road at the Park and Ride sign. Enter­ing the trail from the south, you might find it eas­i­est to park in the Land Bank’s Zyl­stra Lake Pre­serve park­ing lot and walk north­west a quar­ter mile along the road to the south­ern entrance.
