Fantastic hike. Great views, easy parts combined with some nice, but strenuous uphills. Loved it!

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.

So unexpectedly beautiful views on a windy day in February. Perfect Sunday adventure for Washingtonians.

Goose Rock Trail, a fairly short hike at .5 to 3 miles depending on how you navigate the rock, offers both the moderately challenging summit along with the perimeter of the rock that views beautiful Puget Sound.

So many amazing views. Even in January it was a little busy. But it was a perfect sunny day.

It was a well groomed trail. Muddy holes were frozen over, mostly!

Beautiful views rugged beaches with perfectly maintained trails.

So much fun, Great for kids and families, pets. Fun views and beautiful scenery at the beach end. I recommend to see the bridge from below and up on top. Easy walk in the park.

Make sure you’re there for sunset!

The view from the bridge is stunning. Be sure to take the short walk down to the beach to soak in beautiful views of the clear blue water. This is one of the places that made me fall in love with Washington.

Have ALWAYS loved this place! Jaw dropping perfection! It rained for the first time since June today and it was very windy, SO what I have been waiting for, it must be a Washingtonian thing ;) We walked the trails and the bridge and the pups got to play in the water! Great adventure day for sure!
