Deception Pass State Park
This will be the fourth annual First Day Hike at Deception Pass.
Come join us! We offer a choice of a shorter hike or a longer adventure.
Option 1: Start at Pass Lake, hike to the meadow on the north shore, and after a brief stay at the meadow, hike back to Pass Lake parking area. The hike is fairly level except for one eighty foot hill, with views of the lake shore along much of the route. It is just under a mile each way.
Option 2: After hiking to the north shore meadow, then hike through Naked Man Valley to the Ginnett overlook. After enjoying the view (assuming it isn’t rainy and foggy), hike back to the Pass Lake parking area, a total distance of three and a half miles.
Both hikes are open to anyone interested. Please keep dogs on a leash. We will hike regardless of the weather unless conditions are dangerous.
Park interpretive intern Carly Rhodes will lead one of the hikes, and Park Manager Jack Harrt will lead the other.
It starts at 10a.m. at Pass Lake, and those hiking the shorter route should return by 11 or so, while those on the longer route may not return until noon or so.
Deception Pass Park Foundation will be providing refreshments at a common gathering area.
Come start the new year by exploring the park with Jack, Carly, and your friends and neighbors.
