Mercer Slough Nature Park provides an opportunity to switch your leisurely city walks for something more earthy, wild, and rural. The natural pathways and trails guide through the park, surrounded by towers of trees and winding rivers, making this a home for Bellevue's wildlife, a peaceful place for a family hike, or a solitary run. Kayaking provides a distinctive introduction to these marshlands. Protect yourself from bugs during the summer, but do not be discouraged, as this is also the precise season for picking blueberries from the nearby blueberry farm. Arrive prepared with appropriate footwear, as some trails can be muddy. A visit to Mercer Slough Nature Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Bellevue online trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • Convinient location (right near the freeway). Gorgeous views and nice trails. Lots to do and see. Don't go in the summertime. The bugs will eat you alive!
  • Such an absolutely beautiful place. Not many people and it's totally possible to walk the trails and not see anyone for a good minute. I hate people so going for walks in nature in Washington where are no people is huge!
