Mount Vernon Cruise Professional Review and Guide
"This is a beautiful ride across the brilliant green Skagit River delta, along the windy shore of Padilla Bay, and through the historic Samish Valley. This route consists of low-traffic farm roads over flat valleys.
Fir Island includes the Skagit Wildlife Area, an extensive refuge that serves as an important resting point for birds on their annual migrations. Watch for deer, muskrat, foxes, coyotes, hawks, and all kinds of migrating birds as you ride through the quite farmland.
Terrain: roads range from good to excellent, very flat."
