Washington is a great state to explore, by land and by sea. Have you heard of the Cascadia Marine Trail System? The Cascadia Marine Trail is our Nation’s longest recreation water trail. The trail features many campsites along the way offered on a first-come, first-served basis. These sites are for the exclusive use of boaters arriving by human or wind-powered beachable watercraft. Recreational activities include camping, picnicking, non-motorized boating, and wildlife watching.
The Cascadia Marine Trail has a wide variety of wildlife whose Puget Sound home is the second largest estuary in the continental United States. Preservation of the shoreline is important because it supports life for salmon, bald eagles, orca whales and thousands of other creatures, including the 4 million humans living in the surrounding watershed area.
