Guemes Mountain

Turned out to be a beautiful afternoon and perfect for hiking. I was surprised to find many people on the trail today. The wildflowers are starting to bloom. At the top, the view of the other islands in the San Juans is absolutely spectacular. It does appear that work is being done to build another trail on the opposite side.

Deception Pass - Lighthouse Point and Lottie Point

It's always a favorite hiking around the Deception Pass trails. The views are always magnificent! Started tonight from the Bowman Bay parking lot. First ventured down the Lighthouse Point trail. It's a very scenic trail, but there is not a Lighthouse there anymore. Along the way, we saw a few wildflowers blooming and evidence that many more would be bloomed soon! After the loop, we came back to the junction (Lighthouse Point / Lottie Bay / Bowman Bay) and went right onto the Lottie Point trail. Along this trail we saw a lot of Lady's Slippers in bloom, some yellow blooms short shrub and a few short orange flowers. The views from Lottie Point were grand and very relaxing! It provides a great view of the bridge And Canoe Island. We did see a few eagles soaring overhead.

Easy to access and spectacular views. The photos here do it justice, but you just have to see it. Good for all ages, but popular. You will have lots of company in the summer months.

Easy trails and great views. Very busy in the summer, though. Best way to enjoy it? Bring your lunch and picnic at Rosario Head, Vista point, or Lighthouse Point instead of the beach.

Deception Pass is such a wonderful park all around! We started up at Rosario Beach and did a 5 mile loop around Bowman Bay with the dog. There are many lengths and options for various skill levelsand amazing water views!

Great walk. However it is NOT 4.7 miles. It is 2.4 miles to loop around the park following the road.
