Woke up early to hike this trail so I could catch the sunrise over the bridge. A great hike that is easy and offers wonderful views of the pass. Those that like to climb would probably enjoy the quick climb to lighthouse point. I noticed a couple ropes that were left for, what I assume, other climbers who might be enjoying the trail. This is an easy 1.5 to 2mile out and back trail that will be fun for all the family. Also for those that want to explore the unbeaten path there is a un-maintained trail on the west side of lighthouse point that overlooks bowman bay.
A great walk for the family. Lots of interest as the route heads into trees, along cliffs, down beaches and by rockpools. The route allows for people to bail out early if they wish but its worth preserving with the whole walk for the great views of Deception Pass.
Note that there are some short steep climbs on the pike.
Good parking and washroom.
Very nice, very easy trail with great views of Puget Sound and Deception Island. VERY CROWDED and not dog friendly. This is probably a better trail when hiked in the fall and winter months.
