Shark Reef Recreation Area - Lopez Island Professional Review and Guide

"A short hike through forest to the rocky south shoreline of Lopez Island, with abundant marine life and views over the turbulent waters of Cattle Pass. Shark Reef is one of the most popular spots on Lopez Island, and this short walk will take you out to this scenic overlook over Cattle Pass, where you can watch the harbor seals play in the lively current or haul out (climb out of the water) onto the rocks offshore.

The short walk, less than a mile, winds its way through one of the last remaining old-growth forests on Lopez Island and makes a good stop on a bike ride around the island or as a destination in itself. Along the way, you might spot owls, woodpeckers, and bald eagles that nest in the area."
