It’s a really beautiful walk. It’s very peaceful and great spots to just hang out and look at the water. This review is for the beach walk only.

I love this trail because it's super steep, muddy, and poorly maintained. I love it!

Made a wrong turn and ended up at Dorothy Cleveland trail...a nice loop climb—a bit muddy in a couple of spots, but a great early hike with a full supply of nature’s soundtrack!

Scenic driving

With the weather changing over to a new season, it’s hard to want to get out at hit the trails, but we were determined. With rain and cold breezes, we were able to get our heart rates up and break a sweat. Plus the view at the top was unexpected, so the trip was a success. Look at for all the harmless slugs crossing the trail...their just trying to exist. Thanks!!

A pretty small park, but I disagree with the other review that says there is "nothing notable about this trail." The lookout at the top of Dorothy Cleveland Trail is stunning. My wife, mother-in-law, and I went hiking here on July 4. The parking lot was full, which is to be expected for the holiday weekend. However, I usually have this place to myself. Even with all the cars, we were the only ones on the Dorothy Cleveland Trail, which starts in the parking lot and is poorly marked. The trail is quite overgrown and it was a poor choice to wear shorts. There were some nettles to be dodged, but mostly it was sword fern. The elevation climb was enough to get a good sweat going. This trail leads you under some amazing Big Leaf Maple, and their shade was welcome. Keep your eyes peeled - we almost missed the spur trail to the lookout which would have been a shame. The lookout is pretty awesome. It looks down over Puget Sound from some 400'+ elevation. It was a sunny day but there was too much haze to see Mt. Rainier; on a clear day, no doubt you would see that mountain. From that vantage you can see the Edmonds/Kingston ferry trundling back and forth, hear the Possession Point bell buoy, and see as far as the West Point Lighthouse in Seattle. When we were there, the honeysuckle was in full bloom as an added bonus. The descent is far more direct than the path to the top. You just follow a ridge down which comes out behind a storage shed near the old house. A few more paces brings you to the beach for an entirely different experience. The beach is rocky and scrabbly. We were there at a pretty low tide and folks were out clam digging. Follow the shoreline until you're on the southernmost tip of Whidbey and you'll find a polished glacial erratic that we loved to lay on and soak in the sun. There's also some amazing good geology to see in the sandy bluffs. I believe this is a pretty decent hike for Whidbey, whether you want to work up a sweat, bask in the sun, or see some stunning vistas. I'll keep coming back.

Decent training hike for elevation I go up and down twice. Huge cottonwood down on trail about 1/5 of the way up easy to crawl under.

The actual trail isn’t what is shown here it is the Dorothy Cleveland trail and while beautiful, the trails lead right into private property. Nothing notable about this trail.

First to Review

This trail has no markers and is really hard to navigate. It’s also completely overgrown with stinging nettle and VERY thorny blackberry bushes. Hiker beware. The beach at the end is nice, though.
