The American Camp Trail is now open to foot traffic from the town of Friday Harbor to American Camp, as reported by the Journal of the San Juans.

Though parts of the span utilize the road shoulder, most is a series of interconnected pathways of gravel or grass, and private-property easements. It will take about two hours to walk the length of the trail, roughly six miles.

The trail was made possible by the hard labor and dedication of the San Juan Island Trails Committee members and generous land-owners.

The trail starts at Friday Harbor airport, and ends at the Visitor’s Center of American Camp. Be sure to bring water and snacks.
