In addition to the southern access Jon gave directions to there's been
another parking area at the north end opened up in the last couple years at
the end of 12th Street (Discover Pass Required). As you travel down Smith
Island Road and pass the large lots full of boats the road will split with
Smith Island continuing to the right. Taking the left will immediately take
you over an overpass and on a very short segment of 12th street and dead
end at the parking lot. Walking south on the access road will lead you to
the northernmost pond and you can follow the road along the east side of
the settling ponds which eventually winds up at the south end. Looking at
Bing aerial maps (Google's data is before the Smith Island reclamation
projection) it appears there are trails that continue to the east and
possibly go along Union Slough. Worth noting that Hunting is allowed at the
north end of Ebey Island immediately to the east of here and I've even come
across hunters who've pulled their boats into the wetlands immediately east
of the settling ponds.

I did find some notes when reading up on this access that state it's only
open Oct-Feb which is a bit perplexing to me since it connects with trails
open year round, but just FYI.
