Hovander Homestead Park -
Tennant Lake March Boardwalk
    Hovander Park

Unprecedented journey through an actual marsh, some pretty cool ecological stuff! Slow down and spend a little quiet time at the observation deck. The trailhead starts at Tennant Lake Tower behind the Fragrance Garden. Enjoy spectacular views of Mt. Baker and Tennant Lake from the tower, or use the video cameral at ground level.
