Whistle Lake Trail

Great day for hiking Whistle Lake. We started about 4:30 pm. The weather was great, nice and sunny. We began with taking a right at the outhouse, continuing down to trail # 22 and taking a left. Then onto # 206 and right on # 205. We did branch off the main trail for a little bit and followed the lake, getting great views of the little island. After that we got back onto # 205. Along the lake we found fawn lily's, Indian paintbrush and lady slippers blooming. The Hens and chicks were just beginning. Awesome hike tonight with very few people there. Would highly recommend bringing an ACFL map of the area. There are several trails that branch off.

oops, please ignore my previous review and photos. The review/photos I posted were not for Whistle lake in Washington. They were for Holland lake in Minnesota. My bad, wrong trail.

Cool scenic trail for casual hiking (not much incline). Plenty of trails to choose from. Helpful maps along the trails to help keep track of where you're at. I connected several trails to make a 4.8 mile loop. Recommend early morning hikes to see more wild life.

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.
