Deception Pass State Park is a 4,134-acre marine and camping park with 77,000 feet of saltwater shoreline, and 33,900 feet of freshwater shoreline on three lakes. Rugged cliffs drop to meet the turbulent waters of Deception Pass. The park is outstanding for breath-taking views, old-growth forests and abundant wildlife.
I'd advise on hiking the bridge first and when its not raining. There is two parts of the bridge to walk on. You can walk on both sides if you go under the bridge at the end of the trail. Only problem is you have to pay to use the park.
Interesting experience today to say the least. We arrived at the trailhead around 4:15 pm thinking we'd have time to hike this quick 2 mile trail. Headed up the trail as the sun set was hitting the horizon, such a beautiful sight to see. For some odd reason my GPS wasn't locating the trail on may downloaded map? It was taking us on side trails till we ended up getting lost in the brush trying to make our way off the peak. End result being the park ranger waiting for us until we returned to our car. All in all, beautiful trail, well maintained, easy to moderate at times. Discovery Pass needed. Restrooms and big parking area.
