Island Park Trail
Created by a 12th grade English class at the local high school this small gem is located just south of First Avenue in the city of Okanogan and plays host to a rich variety of native birds, plants, fish, mammals and even an occasional cross-country skier. Old growth deciduous trees provide a shady riparian environment along the banks of the Okanogan River only a short distance from the downtown business area. Easy to find and a pleasure to explore, its well-established hiking, walking, running trail includes approximately 3 miles of graded trails plus opportunities for birding, fishing, and wildlife photography. Bring your camera . . . and some mosquito repellant in summer.
