I suggest this hike for anyone looking for a fun day hike or even an overnight if you go up to pine and ceader lakes. (No snow on the trail) (barely any masquitos) there are also a few different trail heads you can start on once you get up to the road.

Beautiful drive, trails are 'open' along the way I'm assuming because of the amount of cars parked along the roadside near the various trailheads. I personally did not stop along Chuckanut Dr but did get out for a quick run around at the parking lot trailhead at the intersection of Chuckanut Dr and Old Sammish Rd. Did 9 miles, saw a few families and solo hikers, although the parking lot was full and overflow parking on the roadside was filling up as I was leaving around 3pm...I did not run into many actual human beings, far less than a trip to Fred Meyer for groceries. Most of the trails are wide enough to practice appropriate social distancing and everyone I saw was very aware of other humans around them.

I love driving on Chuckanut Dr especially in the Fall. The maple trees throughout the winding roads were amazingly beautiful with intense Fall colors. Also there are few great places to pullover to watch the sunset here.

Beautiful coastal drive between Bellingham WA and the Skagit valley. There are several parks along the way, as well as coastal beaches. I like to stop at Taylor Shellfish for some fresh oysters to take home. Good times.
