Seriously, Maxwelton Trails Park?
Once again, a misnomer that will sow confusion — like a ferry called Coupeville Ferry, but arrives at Keystone area miles away. The only Maxwelton most of us know is, again, miles away at the beach park and tiny previous town of Maxwelton.
I hate to think of tourists looking down near the beach … where are those trails?
If nothing else, call it Huckleberry Trails since that is a dominant plant or re-open the discussion. How about honoring the Native Americans whose land we stole? Let’s not name this place until a better name comes along.
Whidbey Watershed Stewards, island historical societies and neighboring tribes, it’s time to chime in.
