Deception Pass State Park Trail

Beautiful trails and views but very popular! From West Beach (next to the State Park's day area) to the bridge, the trail offers great views and beach access. If you continue under the bridge, there are trails that will take you around the perimeter of and up to Goose Rock Summit which offers a terrific overlook view too. Cross the bridge northbound, and as soon as you reach the other side, watch for both cars pulling into the turnoff and for a small trailhead sign for Bowman and Lottie Bay trails (you will actually have to hop over the wooden guard rail). I took the trail all the way to Bowman Bay, past the fishing dock, a surprising but very interesting and well done little Civilian Corps museum, campground and picnic area, out to and around Rosario Head and back to the bridge. It was definitely a very sight seeing hiking tour, and made for a very cool afternoon outing!

Trail was well maintained, easily navigable, and the weather was cooperative, partly sunny with showers. Amazing scenery.

We've been here a few times now. The late spring is just gorgeous with all the flowers in bloom! This is an easy place to hike around, has nice beaches, and good places to take in the views while having a picnic.

wasn't to happy with the hike. I didn't make it to the lake. The trails were all mud and the sun wasn't able to peak through the trees so it felt like I was in some cave or something. There was a lot of bikers out and about but I wouldn't recommend it for hiking with your dog. Not very scenic either a lot of woodland debris looked like from a storm or something.

We made a date out of our visit here. What turned out to be a chance to take pictures turned into over a 5-mile hike. We kept hiking until dusk and enjoyed every minute.
