Hike to Meadowdale Beach

Seattle Times features Meadowdale Beach in Lynnwood today. It is one of just a few public access beaches in Snohomish County. The reporter fails to mention what makes it unique. It is no stroll in the park. Getting to the beach is a hike; it's over a mile each way and 300 or 400 feet elevation gain on the return. (For the disabled there is direct access via a locked gate.) But there is a payoff. It's pretty quiet several miles of beach and few people. It's not wild; railroad mainline and nearby houses - but they don't have access, so it is quiet.

I recommend it; I have hiked it several times. Just be aware that it's a hike, not a stroll in the park.
