Ebey’s Landing Trail

Ebey’s Landing Trail Professional Review and Guide

"In our family, the beach of the Ebey’s Landing National Historic Preserve is the most beloved of the state’s inland sea hikes. My children loved Ebey’s Landing for its beauty, its history, and its endless opportunities for play. The trail on the bluff above the beach has some steep portions that are a struggle for toddlers. But once on top, my kids would gaze, entranced, down to the long tidal lagoon, west to Port Townsend and the Olympics, and south to Mount Rainier.

Ebey’s Landing Inn, listed on the National Historic Register, stands back in a field behind a locked gate. It is the old house with the distinctive moss-covered roof and tall chimneys. Colonel Isaac Ebey settled here in 1850 and was beheaded by Haida Indians in 1857. The inn, built in 1860, continued to operate until the 1920s. Its plans are on view in the Library of Congress, but it is not open to the public."

The views on this hike are simply spectacular! The facilities are excellent - good parking and washroom. The hike consists of two parts - a hillside walk and then a walk along the beach beside a lagoon. The hill walk is comfortable with a reasonable climb up to a ledge over the lagoon and beach. The walk along the ledge can be a little intimidating for younger children or people with a fear of heights but the path is well formed. Great beachcombing on the walk back to the car.
