Port of Skagit Trails Located off Highway 20 between Anacortes and Burlington, this network of trails abuts Higgins Airport.  One-half mile up the road is a parking lot on the left. These are wide gravel trails perfect for jogging, biking, walking and berry picking. There is a total of about 10 miles of trait. Since they intersect and loop around each other, it is possible to create any length walk.
For kids, there is a really nice wetland section with a interpretive trail childrens story, told one sign at a time along the trail. There are also sign posts at every intersection so you can get your bearings.
