I absolutely love this trail. It’s well marked and maintained. There are no bathrooms or trash cans so prepare.

definitely worth doing for the views - best is in winter to avoid the crowds - there is some elevation so if you have physical limitations best to drive down through the main park entrance

Loved these trails, but there is a point where there are three different paths to take, but no markers for guidance. Guess who went the wrong way? That's all part of the adventure though.

My GPS also didn't want to work on these trails, but that's not uncommon.

Didn’t want to waste this warm, sunny day. With young kids in tow, we did the Goose Rock perimeter and summit. Lovely day to be outside.

The summit has some good switchbacks but this was an easy hike and a well maintained trail. We were lucky enough to get a parking spot in the lot when we arrived.

great year round walk

Great for a Sunday afternoon stroll. Once you get past the state park property, there are big scary signs saying you're entering Navy property and only authorized personnel can pass, so we turned around there rather than doing the full length of the red line. Trail runs right next to the beach with views of Lopez Island and the Olympic mountains.

Gorgeous!

Lovely trail with one off trail excursion because we missed our turn. (Ingress trek)

Great sites all along this hike .

Nice views, fairly flat hike, but the trail could use some maintenance, as the brush gets pretty close in a couple places.

Love D-Pass Bridge views! But “hike” as described is more of a walk. We take all out of town visitors to this landmark...a challenge to find parking on the weekends.

Nice easy hike - with a couple of uphill sections that would be difficult for a small dog. Great views of beaches and deception pass.

Did this hike a few days ago and it was fantastic! We got there around 830ish and there was only one other car. There was fog so the summit wasn't anything impressive for us, but going down from the summit to the perimeter trail was a steep down hill! Would have to be part goat to climb up haha but I fell in love with this trail with the views of the ocean and the great diversity!

Parked just on the south end of the bridge. Pleasant walk over the bridge spans and great views in both directions. Returned to the parking area and took the short walk down the hill to the beach area. Lots of people fishing and just looking at the water. Very peaceful during the week.

easy hike. been a few times. once when I was 7 months pregnant. beautiful views. saw seals once and otters. not too crowded during the weekdays. very crowded on weekends

Pretty. short walk around and over bridge. Not really a hike but beautiful.

The hike itself was gorgeous! Short, sweet, and beautiful views, and puppy approved.. Some of the switch backs were pretty dusty and loose from lack of rain but we managed. We admired a couple seals while eating a snack along the perimeter trail. My only complaint would be trying to find a parking spot among the hordes of people and cars admiring the views from the bridge.

cool trail. my gps and this app didn't want to work but cool trail

This trail is not too hard and it captures the views of deception pass beautifully!

Good hike around the perimeter And through the park.

One of my favorite trails to jog and take the kids to. Very easy and the perfect distance to get a workout in but still short enough to be able to make it home before dinner!

Easy trail that our pup enjoyed. We did a bit of the perimeter trail then took the SW trail up to the summit. That part definitely deserves the moderate tag. We only saw 1 other couple on Friday before Memorial Day Weekend.

This trail was perfect! It may have been because Wifey and I went on a Tuesday morning (no crowds at a typically busy weekend spot) and it was nearly 70 degrees (though, chilly at the start and near the water), but I think it was more due to the trail itself — it had everything! It gave us incredible views, beautiful woods, stunning wildflowers, and a sweaty elevation gain...what else could you ask for?! Oh, and my PB&J was dynamite...

This trail was great! You got a little bit of everything. Wild flowers, wild rhodies, a nice treed hiking trail and even access to the beach. We went on a Tuesday morning so there were no crowds however hiking around and then taking the trail to the summit was pretty straight up. I would say it was a little bit more hard than moderate. We didn’t mind the power lines because getting to the top of them was an accomplishment and the view was beautiful! The highlight of the hike at the top was have a bald eagle fly about 9 or 10 feet right over our heads! Amazing!

You can park on either end of the bridge, think best to park on the north side so you can read about Deception Pass and walk across. Path takes you under the bridge and down a lush fern edged trail to the beach which is absolutely beautiful at sunset. Short hike with great views, spectacular scenery. Can be sunny or shrouded in mist/fog. Don't miss it.

Absolutely stunning, quick hike. We timed our arrival at the bridge with sunset, which was out-of-this-world breathtaking. Definitely make time to go if you’re in the area!

A very nice place. Great scenery with breathtaking views. Love the place.

Great views from atop the bridge, well worth your time to stretch your legs and talk a walk. North side pull out parking is free, every where else is $10 for the day $30 for the year. Free bath rooms at South end parking lot.
