This trail can be short or long, depending on how much you want to hike and which trailhead you start from. Along the way, you will pass several quaint waterfalls and some spectacular views of the San Juan Islands and Chuckanut Bay.

For a longer option, hike from the north end of Fairhaven Park south to Arroyo Park. At about 1 mile, a 0.6-mile side loop breaks off eastward and crosses 24th St to Hoag’s Pond. This little forested pond has a wooden bench to sit and makes a nice spot for relaxing. Continuing south, the Interurban Trail enters Arroyo Park, where there are several unmarked, unmapped side trails. Stay on the main trail through the forest for 0.75 mile to a set of switchbacks that climb steeply uphill for a short distance before easing to exit the park. The trail then continues another 4 miles through the forested Chuckanut Mountains to Larrabee State Park.

Along the trail are several blacktop roads leading to private homes. The trail itself, in certain sections, is actually part of private gravel roads but residents have authorized access to hike on the main trail.
