Striped Peak

Striped Peak Professional Review and Guide

"At Striped Peak, two adventures in one await you. Hike to a 1000-foot peak above the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Watch liners and vessels ply this Salish Sea passageway against a backdrop of craggy peaks on Canada’s Vancouver Island. Hike directly to the strait via a steep trail down to a remote cliff-enclosed cove.

The trail begins on an old road skirting the park’s campground. It then heads through stands of big firs. Hugging the hillside and not far from the coastline, wind through forested flats while listening to waves splash up against ledge and bluff."

The cove is definitely the highlight of this trail. The spur trail to it is short but demanding, and worth it. Make sure to go at low tide, though. The view from the top, however, may not be worth the trudge. Mostly just the open water of the Strait, with Vancouver Isand in the distance.
