Shark Reef Sanctuary
Seals, otters, sea lions with occasional Orca Pod await you at the end of this forested trail. Pack a picnic and watch the impressive tidal currents shoot through a series of small rocky islands just off the Lopez coast.
Another great hike with amazing views, plenty of seals to be seen and a nice view of San Juan Island's non-funtioning lighthouse!
This short (approx 1/2 mile trail) leads out to cliffs that overlook tumultuous seas. (Not great for little children as there are no railings and a fall would be disastrous.) You can view sea lions and seals hauled out on the rocks and watch boats fight the current and whirlpools to make passage. …
“all the locals go here! great view of the water, free pool table, great menu and beer on tap!”
“upscale deli and wine shop. Weekly events during the summer include wood fired pizza, wine tasting and live music.”
“This wind swept peninsula on southend of the island feels other worldly. A twisted forest opens up into a huge meadow that abruptly crashes into the sound. Spend up 3 hours hiking this magical coastal trail. ”
“Family friendly park with sandy beaches and hiking trails. Fish, Crab and dive off the county dock. Fire pits and picnic tables. ”
