Great area to paddle! We launched from Latimer’s Landing and paddled around Squaxin Island on the way to Hope. Squaxin’s shoreline is much more interesting (unless you like developed areas) than Hartstene Island or the mainland since it is an Indian reservation and has very few visible structures. Also, there are some nice lagoons and bays to explore at high tide. On Hope Island there are nice campspots ($6 per night), an apple orchard with tame deer, and many trails to explore. At low tide you can walk the entire island on the beach. This eTrail by The Mountaineers Books covers all the options for launching (including the interesting tidal flows) and various routes to reach this small island.
