Got your coffee? Perfect. Time to start exploring. If you're looking for a more low-key outdoor experience, Everett has plenty of walking trails that are beautiful during the spring and summer seasons.

Langus Riverfront Park, with three miles of paved trail winding around the Snohomish River, is darn near perfect, especially on a foggy morning. You can also explore Everett's historic downtown and check out the fantastic results of artists’ creative spirit on display.


Hiking is our proverbial pastime here in the PNW. After you've conquered our urban trails, check out our guide to hikes in our neck of the woods. If you’re up for exploring the beautiful forests of the PNW, check out our list of nearby day hikes.  

Some of the trails can be muddy and slippery this time of year, so make sure you check trail conditions before you head out. Remember to dress for the weather and pack out what you pack in. We want to keep you – and our trails – in good working order.


Biking is a great way to explore Everett on two wheels instead of four — especially since we are a certified bronze-level Bicycle Friendly Community. Strap on your helmet and follow one of our interactive bike tours to find a route that matches your interests and comfort level. Wherever you choose to ride, you’ll want to be safe and ready for your next Everett adventure, so check out the many bike resources at everettwa.gov/bikes
