Cascadia Marine Trail (WA)
Waterway: Inland Sea Trail (Pacific Northwest)
Accomodations: Campsites, Launch sites
Washington State’s Cascadia Marine Trail is one of the premier water trails for non-motorized boaters in the United States. Since 1993 thousands of state residents and visitors have traveled on the water trail that extends the length and width of Puget Sound from the state capitol in Olympia to the Canadian border.
This inland sea trail is a National Recreation Trail and designated one of only 16 National Millennium Trails by the White House. Suitable for day or multi-day trips, the Cascadia Marine Trail has over 50 campsites to visit. People can boat to the campsites from many public and private launch sites or shoreline trailheads.
Overnight camping fees for the Cascadia Marine Trail vary; some sites are free while others may require reservations and payment. Be prepared to pay the fee with exact dollars, as many sites are self-service.

The Goal of CMT
The primary goal of the Cascadia Marine Trail is to secure camping areas every 5 to 8 miles for the safety of non-motorized boaters traveling on Puget Sound waters.
The length of Puget Sound shoreline, according to various sources, is between 1,800 and 2,300 miles.
The trail will be considered complete at a point in time when there are between 225 and 460 campsites.
