The Navy has announced Maylor’s Point Trail in Oak Harbor has been temporarily closed.

The trail, which runs through the Naval Air Station Whidbey Island Seaplane Base along the north beach of Maylor’s Point in Oak Harbor and connects with the city’s waterfront trail, was closed this month and will remain closed until December.

The closure is necessary to allow a contractor to use the trail for equipment and access to truck in sand and gravel, which will be placed on the beach to promote fish spawning. The trail will be closed from where it enters Seaplane Base next to the City of Oak Harbor Marina to the westernmost point.

Questions can be directed to the City Parks and Recreation Department at 360-279-4752 or NAS Whidbey Island Public Affairs Office at 360-257-2286.
