We rented a canoe at Enatai beach and paddled into Merced Slough. It was a peaceful, easy canoe ride with my kids. We saw frogs, turtles, blue herons, ducks and jumping fish. It was just long enough that we didn't get too tired of paddling....More

Nice quiet trails on weekday mornings to go for a run. Trails can be a bit muddy, but that's not uncommon in PNW.

Mercer slough is a lovely place to walk on a nice day. Trails are mostly flat---just a little steep at the beginning and end if you enter on the east side. If you park on Bellevue Way by the U-Pick blueberry farm, it's pretty much...More
