The 400-acre Camano Ridge Forest Preserve was transferred to Island County in 2003, facilitated by the Land Trust. The large, diverse forest is open to hikers, equestrians, and hunters. This is one of the largest contiguous properties on Camano Island and, as such, provides critical wildlife habitat.
Dillon Addition to Camano Ridge: The Land Trust added a 5 acre parcel to the Camano Ridge Forest Preserve in 2015 to provide for improved public access, including a parking area for horse trailers. Located off of North Camano Ridge Road, just north of Carp Lake Rd., the property was clear-cut in 2012, and is now being restored to forest cover.
