Hiking Trails

The Lowell Riverfront Walking Path will be closed for a month starting Monday

A warning from the Everett Parks Department for those who like to use the Lowell Riverfront Trail.

Tree roots and other issues need to be addressed to make the trail safe for everyone.

A portion of the Lowell Riverfront Trail, which stretches 0.7 miles north of the new Lowell Riverfront Dog Park, will be completely closed to the public for trail maintenance starting September 5. The trail is expected to open by October 14.

The Lowell Waterfront Park Trail, along the Snohomish River, connects several communities to Lowell Waterfront Park, the dog park, and the Rotary Park boat launch. The trail and surrounding amenities experienced compaction and tree root invasion which made the trail difficult for some to navigate. The Everett Parks and Facilities Department (Parks) is partnering with Public Works to make improvements to the existing paved trail, picnic areas and root leveling. The parks will add root barrier material along the trail to prevent future root invasion. The project budget is $250,000.

A map of the trail closure can be viewed on the City’s website. More information about the Lowell Riverfront Park and Trail is available at everettwa.gov/LowellTrail.
