Clear Creek Trail (Photos) – Silverdale, WA

It’s been a few years since we’ve been to any part of the Clear Creek Trail in Silverdale, WA. It’s great system of trails to get some exercise in. There are almost 8 miles of trails. This Saturday we just walked a small portion of it and it was just enough.

The part of the trail we were on was a little newer than the rest of the system. Lot’s of blackberry bushes and scotch broom. I imagine once all the trees are grown it’ll be a much more serene and relaxing place to walk through.

We didn’t get to see many birds out but we did see a garter snake in the grass and several dragonflies.

There were many families on bike rides and a several people out for a walk by themselves and others with their dogs. We also saw a few people blackberry picking. It’s a wonderful place for families and individuals to get out and about. Especially those trying to get out while the weather is still nice.

Visit to Bloedel Reserve

A lovely quiet spot on Bainbridge Island, WA that we have come to love is the Bloedel Reserve. It is a serene and tranquil property that is perfect for a stress-relieving stroll, a place to gather your thoughts or time and place to simply admire nature’s beauty.

Our two year old loves trekking along with us on the trails. At yesterday’s visit we were blessed to see ducks in the pond, geese on the lawn, a deer and her doe in the forest and a little squirrel scurrying across one of the trails. Our daughter enjoys the beautiful flowers and never fails to try and skirt away to the water’s edge. So we always have to keep her close. I just hope she never tires of being around nature’s wonders.
