The weather wasn't the best, but the views were still amazing as we ascended the bluff from the beach at Ebey's Landing. We had heard that Orcas had been spotted off the Landing a few days prior but unfortunately we didn't spot any while we were there.
decent hike as far as beach trails go.. more of a walk really. climbs are few and far between. I was a little bored because I'm more of a mountain hiker but won't leave any stars out because of my personal preference. If you have a partner like mine that needs to be reachable by phone at all times, you won't ever lose 4G on this trail. not many people were here on a Sunday in October. great sunset hike.
