Fort Ebey State Park, a 645-acre camping park on Whidbey Island, was originally built as a coastal defense fort in World War II. Concrete platforms mark the gun locations. The park has three miles of saltwater shoreline on the Strait of Juan de Fuca, a freshwater lake for fishing, and miles of hiking and biking trails.

The Kettle Trails System is wonderful. There is a variety of trails. There are wide and flat trails that are for horses, bikes and people. Narrow curvey trails for bikes and people. And the narrow for people only. The trails went through ceders, into a fern valley, along the bluff and down along the shore.
I didn't get to do all the trails but this place has a bit of everything. From beach to cedar deep woods, it is a beautiful hike. Some parts are a more moderate climb so be prepared for that, but it's a good mix of hike and level trails. I can't wait to try it again when we visit.
Wonderful place to spend a day. A little bit of everything, beach walk, wooded hike, bluffs, etc. Fun to watch families flying kites on the bluffs or take a quiet hike through the woods. All the trails are very easy hiking and dog friendly as long as they are leashed. Favorite hike on the island.
