San Juan Islands: A Guide to Exploring the Great Outdoors

Cypress is by far my favorite of the San Juan Islands that I have visited. The climb up to the northern end of the island on the Eagle Cliff trail leads to one of the most scenic overlooks available with nearly 300 degrees of views overlooking the surrounding islands. The maps posted on the island itself are very helpful and informative. For instance, they point out that Bradberry Lake, the higher of the two swimable lakes on the south side of the island, has less vegetation at the peak of the summer. My wife and I wouldn't have pressed on without that knowledge and we really would have missed out. It's a very peaceful spot--and not too buggy for swimming.
