Great trails for Nature Lovers May 21, 2017
I finally made it over to Bainbridge Island and the Bloedel Reserve. It's a tad pricey at $17 per adult, but I understand why it's that high. The grounds take a lot of work and they rely on admission fees and donations to keep it going.

There's around three miles of trails to walk through and 12 different gardens. One being a Japanese garden complete with a tea house.

Since I visited during the spring, I was thrilled to see baby ducks and goslings. It was also fun identifying the various plants throughout the property.

If you want someplace to walk, enjoy nature and not be too crowded, check out this place at least once.

Nature Walk in Paradise! Apr 12, 2008
Located on Bainbridge Island, the Bloedel Reserve is a nature lover's dream! The quiet and tranquil gardens are a glimpse into nature's paradise. Previously the residence of the Bloedel family, they established the non-profit Arbor Fund to manage the reserve after their passing. They wanted to ensure others could share in their love for nature and what they worked so hard to create.

We were lucky and got the last tour of the day on what was one of the most gorgeous days in Seattle! If you like hiking, nature walks, or photography, this is definitely a great way to spend a couple hours. The grounds were absolutely breathtaking (see accompanying blog entry for more photos).

They offer self-guided tours for $10 pp which take approximately 2 hours to complete. They are only open 10am-4pm on Wednesday - Sunday and the last reservation is at 2pm. Make sure to schedule ahead of time as they only allow a small number of people at each time slot to ensure everyone has the best experience possible.
