Hiking Maury Island Natural Area

Maury Island, right off Vashon Island, is home to multiple green spaces for visitors to spend time outside, including Maury Island Marine Park. Maury Island Natural Area used to be a sand and gravel mine, but has since been acquired by the county and is now a park for the public to enjoy. 

The natural area sits near Maury Island Marine Park, with a mile-long shore — the longest single undeveloped stretch along the Puget Sound in King County.
