The short ride from the Anacortes ferry dock to Old Fort Townsend State Park is designed to allow plenty of time in the morning for the long, leisurely ferry trip from Sidney or one of the San Juan Islands to Anacortes and later in the day a second ferry ride from Keystone to Port Townsend. The route to the Keystone/Port Townsend ferry dock travels over Fidalgo Island, across Deception Pass, and on to Whidbey Island. Do not expect the same island feeling found in the San Juans. Both Fidalgo Island and Whidbey Island are securely linked to the mainland and bustle with activity from several large towns and a naval air base at Oak Harbor. To avoid the busy main highway on Fidalgo and Whidbey Islands, most of this ride is on the back roads. Scenery varies from forest to beautiful views west over Puget Sound to the Olympics and east to the snow- and ice-capped Cascade Range.
