The City of Marysville, in collaboration with the City of Lake Stevens, is developing a 4.7-mile-long paved trail from the south end of the existing Bayview Trail at 64th Street NE (SR 528) in Marysville to the south end of the planned Bayview Trail at 8th Street NE in Lake Stevens.
The proposed trail follows multiple north-south utility easements and city streets within the cities of Marysville and Lake Stevens, as well as unincorporated Snohomish County. In many locations, the new paved trail is likely to follow the existing gravel trails and maintenance roads within the utility easements. In some locations it may be necessary to divert from those established trails and roads to avoid critical areas or utility infrastructure. Where the alignment follows city streets, the trail is likely to be a shared use path on one side of the street or a combination of protected bike lanes and existing sidewalks. This multi-jurisdictional trail will increase recreational opportunities and transportation options by connecting to the non-motorized networks in each community.
We're asking for your input on how you currently use the trail corridor, how you would like to use it, specific knowledge you may have about the corridor, and any concerns you have about the development of a trail. The questionnaire includes an interactive map where you can make location-based comments and a survey with questions. The survey should take 5-10 minutes to complete and will be open until June 10, 2022.
