Lighthouse and Lottie Points Professional Review and Guide
"Rugged coastal headlands, placid coves, tidal pools teeming with crusty critters, towering ancient evergreens, and breathtaking views—this short hike in Deception Pass State Park packs it in. Plus, admire Deception Pass itself, with its treacherous waters and historical bridge connecting Fidalgo and Whidbey islands.
Head right first, dropping to near sea level and walking along a tombolo--a spit connecting an island or offshore rock with the mainland shore, formed by wave-carried sedimentation. Clamber up some ledges, entering old-growth Douglas fir forest and reaching a junction at .6 mile. You'll be returning right, so continue left, passing ledges and grassy bluffs that grant excellent views of Deception Pass and North Beach on Whidbey Island."
