  • Fairly easy hikes with beautiful views and beach access. My sons had a great time on this hike. Dogs are allowed on leash as well.
  • Phenomenal! We ate dinner barefoot, reclining on driftwood logs in the cool pebbles on the beach. After the light faded, the ferries lit up and the stars came out. One of my favorite evenings of the summer. The campsite was clean, walk in was easy, and squirrels were only mildly grabby.
  • Great little park to hike. We took the sound view trail to and from the beautiful stone beach. A handful of camping spots are available, the only downside being they are very close the trail non-campers would be hiking. There was some construction happening near the camping area, maybe some type of shelter or restroom facility being built.
  • Nice hiking trails, about 2 miles. If you are a boater, be warned that the mooring balls are affected by frequent large wakes (ferries and cruisers) from very early until very late.
  • One of the most beautiful obstructions I have ever laid eyes on! Great little hike as well. Nice trees and cove views.
