Hiking Big Gulch

The forested trails at Big Gulch offer a great respite from the town of Mukilteo. There are several access points, but the main entrance is just off 92nd Street.

From this trailhead, the main trail goes south and then west toward the water. Another trail goes south to the Mukilteo Library and loops around.

There may be spots of mud on the trail, so wear appropriate footwear, particularly after a rain. It makes for a fun run as there are lots of curves on the trail. The trails are not ADA accessible. There are stairs at the very beginning of the trailhead.
