Kayak Point Park, a little park north of Everett, has been a popular family outing for more than a hundred years.

With short beach strolls, evergreen forest, views of picturesque Port Susan and yurt camping, it's no wonder the park has attracted fun and families for more than a century.

Explore working and recreation scenes from the park in the early 1900's, and then sign up for a volunteer work party to take part in shaping the modern day trails on Kayak Point.

The bluff trail that descends from the campgrounds at Kayak Point to the shoreline below has recently suffered a wash out, and with your help, WTA aims to fix the problem.

If you live between Everett and Mount Vernon, this is a good distance for a day trip. This is the perfect opportunity to get involved on trails in Snohomish County.

Plus, when you volunteer, you won't need to pay the $7 day use parking.
