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.

Blessed to be surrounded by such beauty! This is a place that never gets old. Gorgeous!

A fun connector from south island trails to mid-island trail network.

Lots of elevation change.

A quick and easy trail with a satisfying view at the end. I wish there weren't telephone lines at the top though.

Wow! The views are spectacular.

Going clockwise around the island/peninsula, the first half was spectacular. It's a stretch to call this hike a loop trail however. Had the kids with me, and accidentally took the black dashed line "trail" down to the water. Wasn't sure we would actually make it back up to the main trail, it was so steep. If you can find the main trail, it's steep in places and almost need to bush-whack to get through.

07/14 - Beautiful views of the water.

Gorgeous views on a moderately-easy hike. This is one of our favorite hikes!

Beautiful views, nice and easy distance. It's a fabulous hike and we highly recommend it.
