Easy trails provide views of Mitten Pond and surrounding wetland areas, and surrounding upland habitats. There is limited easy access to the shoreline around this small pond.


Mitten Pond is within the Cranberry Lake area of the Anacortes Community Forest Lands (ACFL). The pond is accessible from several trailheads, but the shortest route is Trail 10 from the gate and small parking area on the right, just south of the “A” Avenue and on 37th Street junction. Maps for the ACFL are available from the Anacortes Visitors Center on Commercial Avenue.


Unless otherwise noted, scientific names are from the latest PLANTS database, Version 3.0 (USDA, 1999. Common names are those used regionally. Each plant's wetland status was determined by consulting USFWS, 1997, Cooke, 1997, and Weinmann, 1999. Introduced plants are identified in Weinmann, 1999 and in the PLANTS database. Weed status is from the 1999-2000 Washington State Noxious Weed List. The following symbols and acronyms are used in this report:


Alternate or reported scientific names, if different from those in the PLANTS database.

Alternate or reported scientific names also used in the Jepson Manual (Hickman, 1993).


Tentative or incomplete identification.
