Two adventures in one await you at Striped Peak. First, hike to a 1000-foot peak rising above the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Watch liners and vessels ply this passageway connecting Puget Sound to the Pacific against a backdrop of craggy peaks on Canada’s Vancouver Island. Then head directly to the strait to explore a series of tide pools up close. Hike a steep trail down to a remote cliff-enclosed cove, or leisurely wander across a sandy beach on a picturesque bay.

The cove is definitely the highlight of this trail. The spur trail to it is short but demanding, and worth it. Make sure to go at low tide, though. The view from the top, however, may not be worth the trudge. Mostly just the open water of the Strait, with Vancouver Isand in the distance.
