Stillwater Natural Area

Stillwater Location mapStillwater Natural Area is a narrow 44-acre corridor located approximately four miles north of the City of Carnation and four miles south of the City of Duvall along Carnation Duvall Rd NE. bordering the Snoqualmie River and the Snoqualmie Valley Trail. The Stillwater Natural Area was purchased in 1994 with Conservation Futures Tax Levy funds to protect and preserve the open space and agricultural characteristics of the site, to conserve the integrity of the Snoqualmie Valley Trail corridor and to provide public access to the Snoqualmie River.  The site contains a valuable combination of pasturelands, wetlands and mature, deciduous forest cover that provides for a variety of fish and wildlife species.  

Stillwater Natural Area pictureCurrently public use of the Stillwater Natural Area is minimal due to its relatively limited access, generally undeveloped character and lack of formal trails.  Close proximity to the regional Snoqualmie Valley Trail and Snoqualmie River provides opportunities for the public to engage in informal passive recreational activities such as walking, nature observation, bird watching, boating, fishing or swimming.  No vehicular access or parking area exists, but some visitors park along the shoulder near the 2800 block of Carnation-Duvall Road NE.
